Men should see women as their equals and of capable abilities instead of sexual beings that serve them. However, because of the way media portrays women it has become increasingly more difficult for men to not sexualize women and demean them, and although the media does play a huge role in the demoralizing depiction of women, women are also contributing to the way man view them by overly sexualizing themselves. The only way men will fully be able to give women the proper respect they deserve is if women stop covering their full potential to demand more in society. Women must demand to be treated with more respect and not to be seen as sexual objects, but also, as equals with
Beckman describes femme fatale as having an enigmatic relation between visibility and truth. She is never quite what she seems to be even though she is highly visible. She is attractive and threatening at the same time. An alluring secret that needs to be revealed (p25). Beckman states that she often alternates between active and passive (26).
I am no longer afraid to say, “Yes, I am a girl, so what?” and hold my chin up high when I engage in political debates and speak about my career goals at home or at school. Explaining that times and expectations have changed to a grandmother who has never worked a day in her life because of the belief that women should stay at home has been a challenge, but I am determined to be a person who makes a difference in our society. One of my favorite reactions on people’s faces is when I debunk their first impression of me. After giving a presentation in my English class, a classmate came up to me and said, “Little lady, you fill the room with a strong confident voice” and I decided to take that as a compliment! Whether I am standing on a chair to project my voice or standing in the front and center of the room, I let it be known that I am proud of who I am and what I look like.
It tends to upset the traditional power balance between the sexes and construct women as powerful and men as weak and threatened. The femme fatale was; a woman who seduces, exploits, and destroys her partners. O’Shaughnessy was deceitful and homicidal but also smart and ambitious. Their independence and power can be seen as a positive step in the representation of women. These women did not conform to the traditional role of the wife and mother.
Feminist criminology has been around since the late 1960's and started out centered on speculations brought upon traditional theories of crime. Most traditional theories didn't necessarily ignore women in the criminal justice system yet they generalized crime and what causes a person to turn to crime so that women who commit crimes are overlooked by the generalization. Not only are the numbers skewed when you look at gender in criminal justice offenders but there is also a certain bias in the criminal justice systems workers. In the movie Vera Drake there is a clear example of this when the investigator and the officer come into the movie. While watching you can easily assume that the female officer is treated and thought of much differently
Of course, one almost intuitively understands that the novel’s leading women adhere rather closely to socio-gender norms; both Adeline and Clara, the two women who most represent Radcliffe’s idealized morality, are traditionally beautiful, focus on emotional intelligence via poetry and music rather than on scientific pursuits, and represent the appealing innocence of ingénues. In the same manner that Adeline’s unconsciousness contributes to her integrity, it also appears that her extensive physical beauty results in part from her inherent saintliness, her beautiful eyes linked to some intrinsic purity (7). Further highlighting this ethical preference for femininity, Adeline exhibits fear related directly to the presence of men; in the Marquis’s chateau, her terror specifically abates when she realizes that “elegant” and “beautiful” women surround her, and later the inverse occurs as she balks in fear at “the voices of men” (158, 299). On some level, Adeline seems to recognize that masculinity poses a significant threat to her, and instinctively shies away from its

Although this distinction in skin color may build on to Ursula’s villainous and dehumanizing appearance, it also explains the inspiration many Drag Queens draw from villains’ deviant spectacle, as they are famously glammed up dramatically with heavy eyeshadow, contour, glitter, and blush among other coats of makeup. “Drag Queens” are men who perform highly theatrical forms of femininity for the purpose of entertainment. Further evidence that villains inspire the queer community includes Todrick Hall, a well known Drag Queen and YouTube sensation who reimagines and pays tribute to Disney villains through his YouTube videos complete with flair and flamboyant arrangements. As Todrick Hall notes about his rendition of the “Spell Block Tango”, “I have always had a strange fascination with the Disney villains’ side of the classic fairy tales and now through the music of Chicago you’ll get to hear their stories.” No doubt, the diva and unapologetic attitudes of Disney cinema villains is a source of empowerment for queer femmes who are oftentimes ridiculed and ostracized for their flamboyant expression.
The Murder of the Hollywood Starlet A young hollywood starlet was brutally murdered in 1947 with no killer identified to this day. This is real case that still puzzles investigators today. The woman in question was named Elizabeth Short, but is more widely known as the “Black Dahlia.” She was given this nickname by the press because of the sheer, black clothing she tended to wear (“The Black Dahlia Murder - Read All about it in FBI Records.”).
