The rise of the flapper was an effect of many different aspects, including: World War I, women pushed into the workforce, changes in morals, prohibition, technology advances, and even jazz. Some of the American citizens were very quick to judge flappers, but in reality they were only indulging in fun activities that American men had been involved with for ages (DiPaolo). Even though the flapper was a very popular icon for the women in the 20s, most of the time the average woman couldn’t afford to dress and act in the ways that flappers did. The lifestyle was far too expensive and took up most of one’s free time. However, the fashion didn’t go unnoticed and was eventually integrated into clothing that could be purchased at all income levels (“Women in the 1920s”).

An example would be in “A Jury of Her Peers” by Susan Glaspell, where the men think very little of the women comments and think they are the superior gender. As a result, the men’s identity is composed of being overconfident and inconsiderate. On the other hand, a woman’s identity is greatly affected by the stereotypes and roles society has set for them.

Hollywood became more accepting of actresses in film in the 1920’s, which is when discrimination became prevalent in the industry. There are many accounts of Hollywood actresses who were under contract with big studios who were treated unfairly whether that be emotional and physical abuse or how much they were being paid. Judy Garland, a Hollywood legend, was payed a lot less compared to her male co-stars when making “The Wizard of Oz”. While sexism effects a lot of people in Hollywood, specifically actresses, it also effects people who are behind the scenes; the writers behind shows and movies. In the journal article “Women and Men in Film: Gender Inequality among Writers in a Culture Industry”, the article includes examples of more opportunities men had in front and behind the scenes in Hollywood, “But as her career progresses, the woman writer 's opportunities are limited to a narrow range of genres, whereas her male counterparts have no such limitation” (Bielby).
To begin, all three sources clearly address the same audience, specifically those people who may be critical of how much athletes are paid. The authors do not directly address their audience, but it is clear from reading the articles and viewing the video because the evidence provided is meant to persuade the audience to agree with their side of the debate. A second similarity is noticed between the video and “Athletes Make a LOT of Money.” Both sources use a logos rhetorical appeal to persuade their audiences. Edelman says in the article that the average income of a family is $54,000 while the average salary for a professional athlete is between $2 and $5 million a year. Similarly, the documentary uses a logos appeal when it stuns the audience with results of a survey that say 42% of the surveyed athletes say that their biggest challenge in life is dealing with injuries from playing, and a whopping 57% of players experienced a concussion while participating in professional sports.

In addition to that many do not take the time to really take the time to know a person and will often prejudge a person based on race, gender, sexuality just to name a few. 12 Angry Men showed how persuasion can be a powerful thing and if individuals take the time to understand the information they can make the best decision with or without a
Although some serious films began to question American society, most films celebrated the idea of a traditional wholesome American character, especially that of the average citizen. Many indulgent and lavish films made during the Depression were used as a way to escape the hardships of everyday life. “During the Great Depression, Hollywood performed a valuable psychological and ideological role, providing reassurance and hope to a demoralized nation. Even at the Depression’s most dire moments, 60 to 80 million Americans attended the movies each week, and, in the face of doubt and despair, films
