Having a persuasive strategy helps conclude a vivid argument where Long provides a solution to gaining young adult’s confidence and respect for their own beauty and power. In this satirical essay, Long shows a mocking approach to gain support of her audience to provide a solution for the predicament. She also highlights the severity of beauty standards throughout modern society and takes an approach of having women and men grant beauty as a key factor. In this part of the essay, Long clearly feels otherwise, as it achieves the ironic and satiric tone of the essay from persuasion. If this essay did not have any persuasion, then there would be no solution to a problem, which would most likely not take a view as a satirical
Mao fixed the lack of rights for women by issuing the Marriage law of 1950. This law was pivotal and very successful to what Mao was trying to do: bring women the same rights that men had. In this law it was mandated that women would be paid the same as men and that cultural practices like arranged marriages and foot binding would come to a halt. These policies were very successful because many women did feel that they gained more rights thanks to Mao and also these cultural practices stopped happening. It may be argued that this law was not effective in that women were still not being paid the same amount as their counterparts.
Figure 1 displays a simplistic background with minimal cover lines and the central focus of a woman who is depicted as being passive and docile. This is evident in the way she shies away from the camera by creating a sophisticated ambience about her. The costuming shows a limited amount of skin, allowing the face to become the focus of the cover. The long sleeves and the high neck collar connotes a conservatism - something which women were expected to follow due to the male perception of an ideal wife. This enforces the targeted audience during the timeframe to use the magazine as the main beauty standard.
Today many Americans are being lied to by politicians, the media, and many celebrities and activists. They are spreading a myth that women in the US are being discriminated against by being paid less than their male counterparts because of sexism. For the most part this is just not true and people need to know about it. Three main reasons that cause women to be paid less is women choose different degrees and careers than men, men work longer hours, and men have jobs more dangerous than women. The fact that women are being paid less than men is true and very few people argue against this.
Many people see no problem with openly condemning overweight individuals in public. Fat shaming must be limited, but it has become too ingrained within us for us to recognize and truly stop it. I am very surprised that someone created a movie that focused on the different lifestyles based on weight. Very few people have called foul on our culture’s fascination with fat humor. Weight bias in the media has been analyzed and has commonly shown that overweight female characters are often teased and insulted by male characters.
Men in Sparta were at war with Athens because Athenians started to think they were more powerful than the other city states, but in reality the only thing protecting Athens was a wall the women got more freedoms because of the men going to war with Athens. Women had many different rights they were allowed to do almost anything except they could not vote. The women of Sparta had many problems, though they could not have as many kids because if they did, they would not be able to work because they could lose the prophet and they would not be making an income. In Athens the women did have some rights but not many and the rights they had were controlled by men. This caused the men of Athens, to think that giving women rights was bad that is why they frowned upon Sparta giving women rights, but if they did not give women any rights they would not have been able to sustain a good society.
In the book it is stated that women are scarce and that is why they were considered such valuable human beings, but still you could find some sort of machismo, for in some parts Wyoh was only recognized for her tantalizing looks but always having her intelligence underrated. Also, almost at the end Lenore volunteered to watch for ships and Greg said “won’t need fems”, at some point another character accepted a woman in his crew only because she knew how to “remain silent when needed”. This is pretty much what we see in our society. Of course we have advanced and women have far more rights than they did fifty or one hundred years ago, yet we are light years away from overcoming the gender gap. It is a fact that the macho culture is still running in the Mexican streets and now I think that it is more dangerous than ever for it almost always goes unnoticed and disguised in the shape of micromachismos and it is killing more women than ever before.
It come from pressure of certain advertisements and the media, they have contorted the way in which people judge beauty. There is a stereotype of the perfect women which should be defined “beautiful,” such as being skinny, having nice hair, having nice skin, having nice eyes, etc., the list continues on the way. The ideological analysis will be used to analyze the Dove Real Beauty Sketches campaign, focusing on its strategy and the message that it sends to women about beauty. The ideology empowers women of all age and race to feel confident about whom they are, going against the stereotypical definition of what the media may portray as “beautiful”, because everyone is beautiful on his own
Having blemishes on their face are considered unattractive and that is why, foundation is used to hide all those imperfections. Silverio (2010) stated that being attractive is focus point of women as they are presented with the ideas that they will meet someone when they grow up, fall in love , get married and all those thing will only be possible if someone s attracted to them. In order to be seen and to found a partner, women need to be find attractive. According to Jackson (1992) women being competitive with one another is no longer a surprise in today’s society. The interesting part of this is that men tend to be competitive more based on ability and intellect while women are competiting for facial attractiveness and appearance.
Another example of the stereotypical nature that Victorian men and society ascribed to women is that they believed that a woman’s career would be to please a man. They saw women as merely sex objects who exist to give men pleasure and satisfaction. Only women were seen to have physical beauty and regarded as emotional beings unfit for education and higher pursuits. Bathsheba breaks these stereotypes. She is aware of her pretty face, but her beauty allows her to prove to her society that she is more than a stay-at-home woman.
