Emily Gibbons Dr. Katie Foss American Media and Social Institutions 11 November 15 A Cultural Comparison of American Women from the 1920s and the 1970s Women in the broad spectrum of American history have dramatically changed their roles in the family, workplace, and the world. Women from the 1920s began to leave the common role of the household keeper and started to explore what it is like to be in tune with their own aspirations. Women from the 1970s lived in a time of “make love not war” so they were very in tune with what they had in mind for their aspirations, but what makes this decade special is the sex appeal that emerged with women in the media. The 1920s are comparable to the same picture that Fitzgerald painted in his novel, The
J. Howard Miller had a hidden message within the idea of creating the poster in this image. He wanted American women to see the power in Rosie’s bicep but also the neatness and how conservative she was in her work uniform. He wanted to advertise that the two concepts could be balanced. This approach reached out the millions of women because it once again proved reassurance. Many women were doubtful that they could not leave for the work force without giving up something in their personal life.
Woman suffrage was a rough time for woman. They proved in many ways, to men and the government, that they were capable of having the responsibility to vote. Except, no one seemed to care and thought that they were not ready. Allowing women to vote is a right because otherwise it would be considered oppression, women are just as capable as men to vote, and they will help improve the government. First of all, if women were not granted the right to vote, it would be considered oppression.
The main rhetorical device is ethos. This is shown through the use of Katie Holmes; Holmes is an older actress who is practicing newer makeup techniques. This appeals to an older audience that has the money to afford this more expensive product because they see someone in their age group and can relate with her. Pathos is also used by making the audience second guess their appearance and wonder how other people see them. It makes the consumer think that this product is able to cover up their imperfections.
Standards for girls in today's society The American society set standards for girls and young women to follow. Companies are selling products and sexualizing girls at a young age. It's bringing in the culture norms of today’s society. To solve the problem, they should utilize diverse models to advertise many of the products. In her essay she uses ethos, pathos, and logos when she is expressing her own view on women’s body image.She also takes advantage strong Diction and tone to consistently show her side throughout the whole paper.
Difficult living conditions, such as this illustration determinates Moss to escape from the life-risking everyday problems of finding a meal to eat. Despite Barbara Moss’s abnormalities and setbacks she is a successful writer/author. Although she changes her face structure when she is an adult, she embraces that beauty comes from within.

How Birth Control Changed America The sexualization of women in the media is often overlooked in today’s world; as a result of frequency and the normalization it has received from the beginning. Although sexist ideology against women originates from an extremely young age, the perspective of women being sexually active for intentions that are not linked to reproduction is still viewed as being taboo. The twentieth century allowed women to have a yet another source of empowerment with the creation of a revolutionary oral contraceptive that would become a turning point in American medicine and life. This option created a decrease in the amount of teen pregnancies, thus allowing women to further their education which in turn, lowers the wage
She frontloads the paper with many quotes and ideas from sources such as a fashion photographer Sante D’Orazio, Ron Crocco the principal of St. Augustine Catholic High School, and Lyn Mikel Brown the co author of Packaging Girlhood: Rescuing Our Daughters from Marketers’ Schemes”. Although there are too many quotes that hides George’s voice, they also give her credibility on the topic, making her ideas seem more reliable to the audience by providing a credible source. Since the audience is well educated, they are more likely to believe what experts would say on the topic of sexualized clothing rather than the editor of the
They should know how to read and be exposed to the world around them to be good examples to their children and be better companions for their husbands. Women should be educated, but refined and submissive and understand that their education was to help them fulfill their roles as mothers and not to seek a role beyond the home. The education of wealthy white women generally focused on academic learning, good manners, and fine arts to suit their class position. They often attended boarding schools or at least private schools. “A well-known southern magazine DeBow’s Review extolled the numerous benefits of women’s education, ‘The effect has been to improve their minds and manners without robbing them of the extreme delicacy and refinement for which they have always been distinguished.’” (McMillen 94).
Women had more knowledge about the issues that were occurring around them. Through their education, the women could get a job, earn a wage, and be considered equal to the men. This change in roles showed how education shaped the life of women as well as other people in America. Education has helped us get closer to the perfect American life which involved the chance for everyone to get an education. We researched 1950s magazine
There’s only life.” This quote perfectly sums up this article in saying that balancing work, and family can be one of the biggest deterrents for women to go into executive roles, and that since this is known large companies should be helping their mothers, not abandoning them. The article also sheds light on the fact that mothers, and most women do not have the choice to work; although they are becoming more educated women are not being rewarded in the same way. Because working is necessary for most women, if society was organized to be equal in the workforce people would realize that mothers just want the best for their children,
Advertising through magazines and television defined and transmitted the role of women and motherhood (Stoneham, Holt). During this time the ‘Seven Sisters’, a group of magazines traditionally aimed at homemaker women some including: Better Homes and Gardens, Good Housekeeping, Family Circle, and Woman’s Day, reached over thirty four million consumers, which is a great deal of women to convince what lifestyle they should live. In addition, propaganda was used to put women “back in their place”, after mem came home from war (Holt). Many television shows presented a set example of a normal american life, the most memorable one being, “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” (Stoneham). June Cleaver, Donna Reed, and Harriet Nelson were all television show mothers who acted the part of the idealistic housewife of this time period.
