After some thought a reader could identify that social class plays a role in who is popular and who is not at Spencer high school. Because she has the money to afford on trend clothing, routine haircuts, and the latest makeup on the market, Alexandra is the most popular. When she first takes Ivy under her wing she describes her wardrobe as tragic, and her hair as obviously box dyed. Alexandra is shedding light on the facts that if you don’t have the cash to spend on fancy clothing and hair treatment than you just aren’t worth the time. Alexandra then uses her money to buy Ivy the new things she “needs” to make friends and become popular.
The next photograph I was intrigued by was of the model Kate Moss in a “body armour” made by Allen Jones (Fig.2). Jones is one of the most famous British artists of the last century with his controversial artwork. He was first known for his paintings but most of his fame came from sculptures. By looking at his work it is easy to tell that he is obsessed with the female body/figure, it seems as if it is his fetish. I came across Jones’ work a long time ago and since then I have never forgotten it, especially his sculpture of a table but created with a woman’s body, mostly the work in which he shows female and her body as objects in his artwork is quite shocking.
Rosemary Goode is an overweight teenager who struggles with the ugly norms of society everyday. She has always been self conscious about her looks, and has always wanted to change, but food always seems to lure her in, preventing her to change. “With Christmas officially over, I knew that there was nothing less to anticipate but the endless gloom of winter, nothing to look forward to except devouring the secret lovers stashed under my bed--Mr. Hershey, Mr. Reeses, and Mr. M&M.” (pg.4) All Rosemary thought about was food. After reading the first few pages about Rosemary, I could already tell that we had a lot in common. I too am overweight and it seems like everytime I try to change, food starts calling my name and I fall back.
Unintended pregnancies happen around the world daily. According to Guttmacher Institute, “In 2011, the most recent year for which national-level data are available, 45% of all pregnancies in the United States were unintended, including three out of four pregnancies to women younger than 20.” Birth control was approved for contraceptive use in 1960 and after two years, 1.2 American women were on the pill. Birth control should be available without a prescription due to the positive feedback. It should only be available to customers aged higher than 15, and must have a monthly check up with their OBGYN. Most of society today believes that birth control is only used for the “stopping of the egg” in the ovary.
The breakfast club is about more than just a school it’s about feelings that all teenagers can relate to. (Hughes, 1985) The 1980’s, America is rising from the ashes of the economic problems of the 1970’and into a golden age of big hair, shoulder pads and Ronald Reagan. (Troy, 2009). Everything was new and exciting, cable television networks emerged and channels like MTV went on air, it gave teens a closer look into glamorous life of the young and famous. (history.com, 2011) Having that insight into the celebrity life was where their fashion inspiration usually came from, they wanted to look like their favorite star and looked up to fashion forward celebs like Madonna.
Being a part of this community and seeing these changes happening is honestly astonishing. If this turns into actuality it would be a good beauty standard. Setting examples for every woman out there across the world who are different shapes, sizes, and colors. Women need to embrace their curves and love their bodies themselves. These examples are giving women confidence and that is why this trend is so outstanding.
