Award-winning lecturer, Jean Kilbourne, in her article, “’Two Ways a Woman Can Get Hurt:’ Advertising and Violence,” pulls back the curtain on how advertising may impact society’s view of women. Kilbourne claims the media portrays women as objects, which generates most of the violence or mistreatment they experience in reality. As a woman in today’s society, I completely support Kilbourne in every aspect present in this article that takes a stance on women’s rights and prosperity. Kilbourne begins her piece by purposing that women are sexualized and degraded in modern society by sexually aimed advertising. She argues that men and women in the media are misrepresented as sex symbols and tools.
Throughout his passage, “Just Walk on By”, Brent Staples sends the message that discrimination has affected the lives of many in several negative ways. He particularly uses irony and satire as tools to prove his point, using them almost like a verbal blade to cut through public image and stereotypes, as well as his proficient use of powerful diction and syntax to strike rememberable points into the reader’s mind. Staple’s use of irony is very simple yet effective. His message is that he is not a stereotypical black criminal, so he portrays himself as one to show how ridiculous that it really is. When he says “My first victim was a woman”, he tries to conjure up images of a stalker or a murderer or even just a plain old mugger, which is what the stereotype of a large, black man, like he explains that he is immediately following this statement.
In the ethnographic documentary “Fire Eyes,” director Soraya Mire presented a biased opinion on the nature of female circumcision by emphasizing graphic content like gore and pain. While Mire’s documentary presents the terrifying nature of female circumcision, the use of graphic content and imagery successfully conveys Mire’s strong opinion opposing female circumcision.

The importance in conveying the horrifying nature of female circumcision through graphic content evokes emotional responses in the audience and easily persuades the audience to follow the director’s own beliefs. In the movie “Fire Eyes,” Soraya Mire creates a personal connection with the audience by choosing to showcase bloody, painful responses rather than solely focusing on multiple retellings of women who experienced circumcision.
