The handmaid 's tale is a dystopian novel written by Margaret Atwood that focuses on oppressing women, abusing them and using them for reproduction and solely nothing else.

They could argue how the company blurring Erica is normal because she showed her breasts and it was not for a general audience. However, when companies censor women, they censor their breasts, buttocks, and vagina, but with Erica, who is a transgender woman, the company censored all of her which does not add up. From this evidence, there is bias against Erica because she is transgender. Also, people could argue that Ma only uses bandages to cover Erica’s breasts since her mother is transphobic. But, in literature and especially short stories, symbolism is widely used and an idea as practical as, ‘because her mother is transphobic’ would not work because of the words in the quote such as, “vanishing” and “like they never existed” are perfectly in one sentence along with both words relating to invisibility.

In the movie “Fire Eyes,” Soraya Mire creates a personal connection with the audience by choosing to showcase bloody, painful responses rather than solely focusing on multiple retellings of women who experienced circumcision. The few personal stories from the women who experienced circumcision offer powerful additions to the horrifying nature of genital mutilation and how the poorly done operation forever ruins the women’s hygiene and health. The result of Soraya Mire’s choice to only showcase the graphic parts of female circumcision takes away the cultural meaning and importance of the practice. Soraya Mire’s strong opinion on female circumcision relates closely with the Western approach to viewing external cultures and disagreeing with practices that

In the introduction “Come Closer to Feminism” Hooks describes the conversations she tends to have with people who are interested in what she does. The misconception that feminism is hatred towards men by women is one that is constant according to her. As she explains most men and even women have the idea that feminist hate men, that they are all lesbians and they take jobs away from white men to make their lives harder, but when asked what they have read or know of feminism most will answer saying that they have never read a book. Their ideas of theories have arrived from that of what others say or mention. Before reading Bell Hooks “Feminism is for Everybody” I did not understand what feminism truly meant, I had the definition that I had seen online of feminist women being what they called "feminazi".
