I had watched Alfred Hitchcock’s, Vertigo a few times many years ago as I was a huge fan of his work.

It is unfortunate that Mulvey, while taken seriously, as her writing still resonates today, was unable to change the ways in which the film industry still views women. The entertainment industry and advertising have only become worse.
Despite having a downfall in 2010 when she went to rehab to deal with an eating disorder, addictions and mental illnesses, Demi Lovato rose up from the ashes and has now become a powerhouse in the music industry, joining fellow ex-Disney stars, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
