Irene has always been passing as a white, but now her true identity is slipping out of her reach. Irene’s self doubt comes from passing as a white person and being accepted in the white society. One example of Irene’s indecision about passing appears when she is talking to Clare, “She said ‘It’s funny about passing.
Surprisingly, out of 2500 movies, more than half have failed to pass it. Even the script writers do not try to pass the Bechdel Test because, well, this is what sells the movie.

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).
The same goes for tv shows. Indian- Americans are rarely represented in the media: Mink Kailing, Aziz Ansari, and Priyanka Chopra are the few actors that have been represented in the media. People of color are not properly represented in the media and stereotypical roles dictate how the world views them. It has been this way for years and the media is a huge step in changing the way people of color are view.

Gender equality: the pinnacle concept that American society is not-so desperately trying to achieve. Many Americans have convinced themselves that gender equality was remedied by the Nineteenth Amendment and the Second Feminist Movement, and have not considered the thousands of steps that are left on the journey. In recent years, a matter of public interest has been the gender wage gap, stating that women are earning significantly less money than men for doing an equivalent amount of work. Critics of the effort to “break the glass ceiling” claim that a pay gap does not exist, and that if it does, it is because women either do not work as hard, have to tend to their families, or hold lower paying jobs. However, the gender pay gap has been proven to exist in a variety of different forms,
In the article “Girls Just Wanna Have Fangs,” published in The American Prospect in November 2009, Sady Doyle argues that it is not fair to criticize Twilight book because of its fan base, who are almost teenage girls. She emphasizes that the criticism focus more on the feminists than on the contents of the movie. Fan girls of Twilight are called "Twi-Hards" and usually described by squealing, shrieking and making loudly, but it is not necessary to see them ridiculously. Compared with other books, Die Hard or Tom Clancy novel has many people do not like it, but none of these books is mocked.

Lowry has faired well in those games overall, but for the Raptors offense to go to another level they need is shooting (he 's also their only 3pt threat off the dribble). Good news for the Raptors is Lowry is shooting 37% from 3 and is 4 of 10 on off the dribble 3s in those games. Bucks experience: The Bucks do not have much playoff experience on their roster. Their 3 best players Antetokounmpo, Middleton, and Brogdon have a combined 12 playoff game between them (with the former 2 struggling in their 1 playoff series). Compared that to the Raptors, who have playoff experience up and down their roster with the likes of Lowry, Ibaka, DeRozan, and Carroll.
Often the work conducted in Kodak’s research labs related to digital technology was left unappreciated by other by the rest of the company who still believed in silver halide film as the industry standard. Kodak also faltered in its ability to put its acquisitions to use. In addition to some questionable acquisitions, Kodak’s shear inability to convert the acquired technical expertise to successful knew products proved many of its acquisitions to be a waste of time and resources.

The company was purchased solely because the Kodak managerial team felt that the pharmaceutical industry was at its core a chemical business like itself.
