But only because it has found our weak spot and is trying to cash on it. In reality it gains trillions of dollars from women’s insecurities and keeps perpetuating the harmful notion that a woman’s value is solely in her appearance. That’s why the industry doesn’t care about you and your

“The very thing that was meant to protect natural beauty has turned and threatened our very definition of beauty. A beautiful woman should strike you as different; as unique; as an individual. Her body can be attractive based on a number of things, but shouldn’t one of those criteria be that she is real?” (Curly) Martin’s play Beauty helps bring forth two different women living two different ways, one receiving all the attention of men and the other wanting to be receiving that attention. Everything is not as always as it seems to be, because you never honestly really know what someone else is going through. Throughout the play Carla is the beautiful one getting attention she doesn’t want, as she hopes for men to look past her looks and want to get to know her.
It shows that scout believes that women have a minuscule amount of power, and that she needs to act like a boy for her to even be recognized by Jem as a member of the group. Gender equality is not fully intact, as shown explicitly throughout the novel. Scout is not the only woman who feels the impact of sexism in the novel. Especially in that time, women were not treated as equals in many circumstances. Women are also set a standard to be ladies, doing things such as wearing dresses and not playing outside like males are allowed to.
Context: Many actresses are being paid less because they are women and are less than men.

Fuller personifies what is wrong with the thoughts of people in nineteenth-century society. She is a well-educated, attractive woman and yet, in America, she is considered unmarriageable because of the unintended intimidation her knowledge brings forth. She can’t understand why men would not want to find a woman with whom they can carry on an intelligent, meaningful conversation and still be physically attracted to. She knows that once this inferiority complex is gotten past, women will start to excel in all different fields (7, 8). The intense passion of her message in Women in the 19th Century blows away both her male and female audience
Which lead to feminism a becoming word, a lot of women fear to be identified with and it has become an accusatory term. Feminists are seen as man –hating and sexists kind of sadistic females. If a woman calls herself a feminist, she’s stereotyped and seen as someone who doesn’t believe in equality of the sexes. Feminism started as a movement which was meant to empower women and help them win rights so that they could enjoy the privilege men have had.

"Radical feminists reject the notion of a “female brain.” They believe that if women think and act differently from men it’s because society forces them to, requiring them to be sexually attractive, nurturing, and deferential. In the words of Lierre Keith, a speaker at Radfems Respond, femininity is “ritualized submission” (Keith). A line taken straight from the piece itself, is representative of the piece as a whole because it discusses misconceptions and common summations made about feminists and their beliefs and the was that they act upon those beliefs. The article questions, and justifies, which is an unlikely pair that compliments one another. However, trending statistics sadly show, that if feminism isn’t addressed and given direction before December 2015, it will be 75 years at least for the probability that women will be paid the same for equal work will almost level out.
ladies couldn't establish with themselves. Gaye Barebara Wertheim Tuchman (1979) conducted a look on the depiction of ladies by mass media. He noticed that the majority of the voiceovers (even today) area unit male voices thereby indicating quality of the male voices. He notices "the terribly underrepresentation of ladies, as well as their conventional portrayal, could symbolically capture the position of ladies in yankee society-their real lack of power. It bespeaks their "symbolic annihilation" by the media."
