Continuing with the example, the title says “Cool party mom, accused of” the word accused is loading and could have been replaced with a nicer word such as proof or seen. These words throughout the text are vulgar and really appeal to the reader. Another example is when a witness says “no respect!” this shows that the women is not nice and gives a bad vibe. There could have been other words such as she is not kind or something along those lines. So, now this essay has ultimately gone through the three ways that the text can be deviated from the text, to entertain
From the quote above you could clearly tell why women wouldn’t want to say out loud their own opinion, making them oppress their feeling by the use of fear. But I don’t understand how the phrase “Oh, you’re such a girl,” would affect a women that much since they are a girl? After that the blog talks about how comedy is used as a tool for shaming and silencing. “We’re meant to be shamed and silenced by the myth that jokes don’t matter”. From this quote we could tell that the blogger believe that jokes aren’t just used to be funny but also used as a tool to make fun of people as a result cause people to be silenced and shamed.
There is no doubt at all that society is the number one responsible for women feeling unhappy with their body image. Society are the ones to blame for making women believe that their own thoughts of the ideal body for women is the only way to go to feel valued and accepted. Why try so hard to be perfect if even the models themselves don’t look like themselves. You don’t need to look like anyone else. In the academic journal “Media Effects on Body Image: Examining Media Exposure in the Broader Context of Internal and Other Social Factors” by Kristen E. Van Vonderen and William Kinnally states “Therefore, some women may see their body shape and weight as a sort of “measuring stick” of social value”.
With the battle over right from wrong Janie is heavily on the wrong side. No longer caring about the opinions of everyone else Janie began to take her own life back into her hands; to the disapproval of the community. This example adds to the story overall because it helps to give us a sense of time and well as helping us to understand Janie. It also gives us a sense of understanding when it comes to her most recent choice. Overall the quote shows the disapproval of everyone else, as well as Janie 's willingness
No one enjoys being called out for a wrongdoing or urged to confess a mistake. However, that is exactly what Audre Lorde does in her paper “Age, Race, Class and Sex: Women Redefining Difference.” She discusses the role of the oppressors and the oppressed while both reprimanding and sympathizing with her readers. At a first glance, Lorde’s paper may seem like it attempts to tackle too much, from race and gender to socioeconomic class and sexuality, all at the cost of potentially ostracizes those in positions of power. Because of that, Lorde must work to not divide her readers between the privileged and those less fortunate while also answering the question of whether or not society can combat prejudice programming without falling into the paralyzing
Women are portrayed many different ways in the media. The media tends to have a bias towards stereotyping these women based on what they wear or actions taken, often putting them into a simple category. In Virgil’s Aeneid, Dido, Camilla and Venus are three personalities portrayed as weak, strong and neutral, respectively. Virgil’s stereotypes of these women are overly simplistic by only allowing each character to have one major personality trait. Dido’s insane need for Aeneas, Camilla’s strong warrior personality, and Venus’ act as a motherly figure for Aeneas provide evidence of simple personality traits embodies in these characters.
One of the quote that Margo says relates to the theme of identity, this is when she says “I’m not pretty. Not close up, anyway. Generally, the closer people get to me the less hot they find me.” (Margo, Chapter 4) Margo likes everyone to know who she is, her identity is put out for the world to know. But the thing is on the inside she doesn’t actually know who she is. But when people get close to her, they realise she isn’t the person they thought she was, her life looks messy and not put together like everyone thought.
The following quote should hopefully secure the idea that oppression is still very much a prominent part of society that affects women, “We look silly, incompetent, weak, and generally contemptible” Frye writes, regarding the differences between female restrains and male restraints, “Our exercise of this discipline tends to low esteem and self-esteem. It does not benefit us. It fits in a network of behaviors through which we constantly announce to others our membership in a lower caste and our unwillingness and/or inability to defend our bodily or moral integrity” (16). In essence, this quote displays how women are mocked for attempting to develop their own independence. The mocking results in a lowered self-esteem, which prevents women from progressing by keeping women below the social standing of men.
The media, such as television, magazines, the Internet, and movies have traditionally portrayed an unambiguous reflection of how society endorses a certain body image. The media depict girls and women as either thin or curvaceous, so they can display the viewer’s expectations and standards. Moreover, females who do not meet these seemingly stereotypical “body image standards,” often feel less self-assured about themselves and, therefore, try to uphold the perceived societal ideal by any means necessary. According to Tiggemann (2006), “First, women and girls’ own reports clearly indicate that they hold the media at least partly responsible for their negative feelings toward their bodies” (p. 524). By having these negative thoughts, women can harm their bodies by doing whatever they can to fit the expectations that the media seems to portray.
Also the relationships usually fail. Carol Ann Duffy wants to contribute that the outcome of the relationships goes beyond the gender and it depends of the human itself regardless of gender. In both i the 'Pygmalion bride and ' 'Little Red-Cap ' ' they both deal with the gender discrimination in the aspects of social conditions. Rather than the gender of the characteristics the social pressures and the society accepts to specify behaviour and traits by each gender. Maybe this is a real reason that most of the relationships between the characters in the Duffy collection were failed.
Malala Yousafzai once said, “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.” Identifying the value of free speech is made far easier when it is not respected. In patriarchal societies women are often ignored or written off as unimportant. Especially within the social structure of the warrior culture, the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of women are discredited. By becoming consciously aware of the lack of respect given to them, the women of Greece, Troy, and even Goddesses reclaim their power within a society actively damning them to be silent and weak. In The Iliad, by Homer, the characters Helen, Athena, and Hera assert that women may not have power, but by embracing the roles given to them, they are able to leverage their
