I think it would be difficult for the prosecution to form an argument off of my points. The prosecution admitted that they don’t argue that Ms. Stephens is a victim of abuse, but rather is not suffering from battered woman syndrome. Once I use all of my witnesses and explain how Ms. Stephens is a clear case of battered woman syndrome, I think they will have a difficult time arguing that considering she clearly has every sign and symptom. The only argument I think they can use would be that because Mr. Stephens went to take a nap, Ms. Stephens could have just called the police and not shot him herself. I think members of the jury may also agree with this purely on the basis that those who aren’t victims of abuse can easily have the mindset that
The maltreatment of Janie is demonstrated with whipping. Not only does the story exhibit physical abuse, emotional abuse appears through Janie’s tears. The use of different wrong doings allows readers to view the abuse displayed in the 1800’s. However, many others and I can attest to the novel not encompassing the dilemma of abuse enough. The men, converting it into an ideal, romanticize the abuse of women.

Although immigrants are given work, they are often discriminated in their work place, it is immoral.
Misogynoir is so prevalent in many cultures, even the seeming universal ones such as pop culture and entertainment. In our entertainment and media it is presented through stereotypes. Black people have been the butt of the joke, their character’s sole being was based off a cliche scripted standard, never diving into the multifacet people they are capable of being. They are categorized into tiring tropes that are hurtful and insensitive.
“A stereotype is an oversimplified or generalized idea about a certain group of people, often held by members of a different group.” Stereotypes typically come from those who are ignorant to topics such as gender, sexuality, race, religion, etcetera. The people imposing the cliche use stereotypes as a defense mechanism, to feel superior, safer, more comfortable. A couple examples of this are gender bias or roles and police brutality. Gender bias is a very common stereotype. From the moment we are born, we are given the assigned colors, blue for boys, pink for girls. Women are feminine, men are masculine, and if the cards are flipped then that person is deemed as queer.
In this world today, there are many cases of police brutality going on right now. For some cases, police shouldn’t have acted the way that they did. There are multiple reasons for why police brutality occur and must be removed for it to occur less.
Hey Juni, police brutality is definitely a major issue in today 's society. After the whole Rodney King beating, the world finally got a small glimpse of the law enforcement taking advantage of their power. Police authority have gotten so out of hand, that some actually feel more feared around officers than protected. The stereotype that officers are racist to African Americans is also a popular topic, but I believe all races of people are being mistreated by the police. More attention should be put on how officers use their rights and power in the work field, and how they can disfuse and correct problems with at the least amount of violence as possible.

Basing actions off of perception extends far beyond the literary worlds created by McLiam Wilson and Phillips. In an experiment by Behm-Morawitz, Lewallen, and Miller, the researchers found that the actions perceived in reality TV shows had an effect on the attitudes and behaviors of young female viewers. Viewers who watched romance reality TV shows were more likely to hold egalitarian gender role beliefs, while watching makeover and docusoap reality TV programming increased the likelihood that viewers believed females to be socially aggressive, what researchers called “the mean girl stereotype.” This preliminary research suggests that the perception of gender and action on television can have an effect on individual’s behavior in their daily life. This shows that viewers may find acceptable forms of gender and behavior that significantly changes their own behavior. Again, they are modeling their behavior off of a perception that may or may not exist.
According to data from The Sentencing Project, roughly 2.2 million people are in the United States’ jails and prisons. The United States is currently leading the world in incarceration rates, and this is no accident.

The 2011 documentary Miss Representation brings up this idea of how the ridiculous stereotypes of women are portrayed heavily through the outlets of media and how that has negatively affected American women.
