In contrast to past gender stereotypes, they argue that girls should be strong, independent, and intelligent. Orenstein takes a second wave feminism approach, meaning females are just as capable as males. She references how she commonly writes about feminism and warning parents of a “preoccupation of body and beauty” in order to pull for a change in society (327). The beauty standards give women an impossible set of goals deterring their confidence. In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329).
It may also lead to jealousy of one another or hatred from someone else, because they think of someone being “better than others.” For example, “…I worry these girls are just doing it because they are being ordered to do so…”, Nancy Irwain (Toddlers in Tiara, 493). Nancy is just stating what she thinks, this is the perfect example of stereotyping someone. Unfortunately, she is stereotyping little girls that play a role in pageants. Maybe the children actually enjoy doing the pageants and the parents do it because of that. That is the perfect way to explain how stereotyping works.
According to Sabrina Victor, “Even though some girls in middle school and high school are good enough to play with the boys, we still shouldn’t let them because these girls are the best players for girls ' sports programs. If we let the best girls play on the boys’ teams, then talent would be taken from girls sports programs”. Actually, girls can be stronger than boys. Any girl can beat any boy. It’s just a stereotype that says that guys are stronger.
Her big nose and fat legs show us the physical flaws of the girls and hides the inner beauty she possesses. Although she is smart, healthy, and skilled, she is only worried about what others think of her physical appearance. She spends her life trying to impress others around her and sacrifices her happiness in doing so. She loses who she is and becomes what others believe she should be. Through all of this we can learn that if we love who we are then there’s no one that can take that away from us.
In a society where women have little status, she is seen as fiendishly cruel, when actually she is just trying to get to the top of the social ladder with little help from others. Surrounded by people who disrespect and disobey her, she must do whatever it takes to make her fantasy of becoming a head
Instead of using wealth to get out of trouble, another teenage “Plastic girl, Regina uses her property as her power. Regina has tons of nice things like a big house, nicest and priciest car etc., but she has the notion that by showing off her stuff, it gives her power over everyone. When Cady is tired of what the popular girls are doing, she begins to go after them and go against them to try to ruin them.
Like in Document E. Groups that are totally different have tension and it is usually for wealth and attention when it involves younger girls. Another point of evidence is that in document B most of the accusers were women, I am not trying to label anyone, but usually women can be somewhat ‘sensitive’ especially when it comes to men and wealth, they crave attention, maybe that is my opinion but it seems pretty relevant, with the evidence given. In conclusion the evidence given gives you an understanding that a cause in the witch trial hysteria was
Hi Adrian, I am completely convinced and thinking on the same way like you too. Often advertisers are targeting on the consumers ' mentality and emotions because human have the tendency to follow trends. Besides, we love to see if there is any famous celebrity or expert is using the product too because we believe if the rich or influential people is using it, it must be somewhat effective. For example of Kim Kardashian 's effect, most of the women are willing to try on "Quick Slim"; they just want to be like her; good body shape. So persona is definitely play a big part in rhetoric that chosen by
Not many people would have found this ad offensive. In today's society this Ad could work on some women but a lot of women would be upset about it and would probably have started a social media campaign to take down the company for body shaming. A lo en today are proud to be the people they have become and are perfectly fine with the way they look. For that reason this ad does an amazing job at the reaching the audience because it catches the readers eye and it even has a very bold statement to go with
She seems to accept it as part of the natural course of things. Her success seems navigated by a personal desire to succeed, not by a desire to be better than others but to challenge herself. Yeah, she 's pretty cool. But others don 't necessarily see it that way. It sometimes bothered Laurie that underlying their friendship was a constant competition for boys, grades, popularity, almost everything you could compete for.
I’m not going to say that some girls aren’t like this in real life, because, unfortunately, some are. There are many girls that are like Claire. Shy, timid, but sweet. You can still be popular no matter what you wear and how you look. “Popular” is just the way you feel when everyone wants to be you.
Frankie not only spouts off feminism throughout the story, she lives it, by taking matters into her own hands, and deciding to become a sort-of member of the secret society. Actually, she becomes a sort-of leader of the society. But she also recognizes that not every girl wants to be a leader of the society. Not every girl wants to start a revolution, nor does every girl feel the need to do so to be a feminist. And Frankie even ends the novel recognizing her flaws, and recognizing that the things she did might not have had the big change in her society that she would have liked, but that in subtle ways, maybe she helped pave the way.
Now this type of statement was mostly used by males to use on females but now has a negative connotation representing victimhood. Some individuals believe that feminists sanction victimhood(Fiano). Which sounds legitimate since occurrences like that have happened in the very school I attend. With misogyny, sexual objectification, stereotyping being a trend in our society this idea of victimhood isn’t really far fetched. Unfortunately life becomes more difficult when society gives you guidelines that are seen as women like because everyone is different and should pursue their own
It’s agreeable to many people that a young girl will look up to her mother more than a plastic doll. There is absolutely no way a mother cannot keep her daughter from looking up to her. If a child sees their parents doing something, the child will think that the action is acceptable even if it is not positive. Martin points out that women find it easier to put blame on a doll than taking responsibility of what they say about their physical features (1). Martin also explains how “[so] many of the young women whom [she] has spoken to describe a mother who would say to them, ‘You are beautiful!
