For many women, their whole life is consumed by trying to fit in. Also, the author states in lines 15-16 that “Her good nature wore out like a fan belt,” shows how hard she has tried just to try and be what society wants her to be. In today’s society especially seeing all of these celebrities on the internet and TV and how good they look makes women try even harder to fit that certain image that society portrays women out to be. Society is a very harmful thing, it pressures many people into believe that what is fake is real. In the eyes of society if you
Sex Sells: Motto Gone Wrong The feminine body has been extremely exploited throughout advertisement history. Advertisers have been using the female body to sell magazines for years. Nowadays all though irrelevant, many products are being linked with explicit sexual body imagery of women on the verge of pornography. This concept has rapidly turned into a stereotype that portray women as sexual objects. Not only women have been objectified, but also the average female reader has been forced to face an unrealistic misconception towards the female body.
All depict women as powerful figures who use their wits to make a better life for themselves. In The Wife of Bath’s Prologue, we are introduced to the wife herself. She may embody many of the negative stereotypes men have of women, but there is no doubt that she is cunning and intelligent. She weds five husbands and walks over nearly all of them, proving the stigma that men wear the pants in a marriage is wrong. She uses her sexuality and verbal abuse to emotionally manipulate her significant others.
Academics Gerding and Signorielli believe that social cognitive theory, is a strong aspect of gender role learning to tweens as they are old enough to watch television actively and selectively. The superficial notion of the women in the above shows explains the ‘girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do’ contradiction that pits women against each other to impress the male protagonists.

Sexy Inc.: A Critical Look at the Hypersexualization of Childhood, is a documentary about the overt sexualization of girls in today's society. The documentary showed girls of various ages reacting to how women are represented in today’s media. They showed the girls media advertisements, music videos, and dolls that depict women as highly sexualized and sex objects. The sociologists in the film were discussing how the media is portraying girls as sexual objects and how forcing these ideals onto them at such young ages is destroying our society. The first social structure that children are influenced by is their family.
Over time women have faced and overcome multiple obstacles. In this day and age, women have gained the right to vote, receive an education, and make their own decisions about their life. However, women are still faced with the struggle of fitting into societal norms, and this is becoming increasingly dangerous in our mass media society. For centuries, society has made females feel as if they must fit into the barbie doll image created by a patriarchal society. Some women face eating disorders, plastic surgeries, an abundance of makeup, or even the idea of suicide to elude thoughts of being less than ideal in other people's eyes.
( doc E ) Most females of the age of 16-20 accused women who were married of the ages of 41-60. They probably jealous because the women were married and the 16-20 year olds weren't.
