Anne McClintock wrote her essay “Gonad the Barbarian and the Venus Flytrap: Portraying the female and male orgasm” to examine pornography and how it has changed throughout history and its effects on how women perform as sexual beings. McClintock focuses on the various roles of pornography such as its emphasis on voyeurism, pleasure, and the male ego. She wants her readers to know that women are still not represented in pornography to satisfy their own desires, but they are there to cater to men and their subconscious. I will analyze how McClintock argues that due to the history of sexism towards women, the roles that men and women have in pornography are inherently different because of the societal belief that women are only seen as objects of sexual desire and are solely there to satisfy the male audience.
In this written text, the emphasis will be on Margaret Atwood’s novel, The Handmaid’s Tale and as well as the way Atwood portrays women and how it can be argued to show the oppression of women. The main purpose is to analyze the way women are treated throughout this book and depict why they are represented this way in the society in Gilead. Then, comparatively, observe the men’s domination over women and how they govern this society. In The Handmaid’s Tale, women are stripped of their rights, suffer many inequalities and are objectified, controlled by men and only valued for their reproductive qualities. The Gilead society is divided in multiple social group.
Abduction and sexual assault is notorious throughout the world with adolescences generally being the main target because of their vulnerability to give in to objectionable seduction. A profound example of a male intruder barging into the life and mentality of a naïve female protagonist is the short story, “Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates. Essentially, Oates exaggerates characterization through the use of archetypes and existential allegories to give closure to the realistic narrative. The feminine archetype of Cassandra is reflected on Connie’s mentality and her ultimate actions.
Firstly, Atwood satirizes the way women are presented stereotypically in literature work. She implies that women do not have a voice of their own, and that they always act in the shadows of men because of lust or pity for men. This description is full of exaggerations and Atwood also indicates how
Make money differences that can also be similarities found in Jamaica Kincaid story ‘’Girl’’ and in Anna Quindlen story ‘‘Between The Sexes A Great Divide’ ’For example, a similarity between these two amazing authors is that they 're both written in a woman 's point of view and talk about how woman and man are a bully in their relationship. In ‘’Girl’’ written by Jamaica Kincaid, Female talks about how ladies can be can be bullied and how men can be bullied as well. Jamaica Kincaid writes, ‘’this is how to bully a man; this is how a man bullies you; this is how to love a man; and if this doesn 't work there are other ways’’ (Kincaid page 1) This shows that a woman point of view on can be similar because both authors talk about how a man bullies woman and how woman bullies a man. In ‘’Between The Sexes A Great Divide’’ by Anna Quindlen talks about A look or a sign about how both genders think that women or men could be weird or considered strange. Jamaica Kincaid writes ‘’.
In "Two Ways a Woman Can Get Hurt," the author, Jean Kilbourne, talks about how women are sexualized and mistreated in the public eye by advertisements. She contends that men and women in the media are distorted as sex images and instruments: Women are portrayed as mediocre in contrast with men. For example, she states that the woman is “rewarded for her sexuality by the man’s wealth.” The media has aimed towards promoting either women or men particularly. In one advertisement, she clarifies how a tie organization publicizes ties by having ties laid in a botched up bed — as though showing that this brand of tie will help you get laid. This, likewise, sends out the wrong message to men that a tie will ultimately help them score with ladies.
A specific variety of story that was used can be labeled as a reiteration of a similar idea, where lines in different accounts of survivors that had common aspects were played back to back. This happens in a multitude of places throughout the documentary, including a part during the documentary where multiple incidents of victim blaming were repeated (9:46-12:05) and where many girls repeat how they were raped at fraternities (58:47-1:05:55). In both of these clips, a piece of different girls’ stories were shown back to back. For example, one girl says how she experienced victim blaming by being told that “it was her fault because she was drinking”(9:46-12:05). Then the film cuts to a different survivor where she explains how she experienced victim blaming through “being asked repeatedly how often and how forcefully she said no and if she thought the guy who raped her understood she didn’t want to have sex” (9:46-12:05).
The Court is in Session is mercilessly attacked verbally in the name of mock-trial as she committed fornication and Rani in Nagamandala is accused of adultery while the male culprits in both the plays are not found fault with. Condemning the sexual oppression of female by men, Jandhyala says, “It is desired that female have a choice, control over their bodies and lives”11 This is exemplified in Tendulkar’s play, Silence! The Court is in Session. Benare
The pros and cons in a society for a couple and the myths and facts hounding the families to commit a crime of honor in the name of forced marriage. GIRLS NOT BRIDES ‘Forced marriage is a means of controlling female sexuality and women’s autonomy. It involves coercion, mental abuse and emotional blackmail, and intense social pressure. In the most extreme cases, it may also involve physical violence, abduction, false imprisonment, rape or sexual abuse, and murder.’ (Hossain & Turner, 2000)
The purpose of this quotation is consistent with the aforementioned one. Society’s superficial viewing of women is also reflected in the poem’s wring, as it may seem that this poem is strictly concerned with a prostitute, but in fact it describes all females. The male representative in the poem, Georges, then asserts his superiority, despite their similar conditions of being poor. Although he is sexually attracted to her as he “stiffens for [her] warmth”, suggesting an erection, he is unwilling to accept her as a human being as he deems her question “Why do you do this?”
