When V saved Evey after she peppered spray one of the detectives in the broadcasting building, Evey wakes in fear, realizing what she did was wrong. V replied saying that “ is that what you really think or what they want you to think?”. This scene depicts evidently how the mass media, controlled by the authority spreads the dominant group’s ideology which leads to false consciousness.

The U.S. women’s movement started in 1848 when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott participated in the Seneca Falls Convention in New York to talk about various social, civil, and religious condition and rights of women (Women’s History in the U.S....). Over time, this inspired many women to stand up for their own beliefs and for the better for women in future generations. During World War I, high birth rates led to food and supply shortages, and disease which mainly affected those in poverty (Putting Margaret Sanger’s Ideas in Context).

Because of the medicalization of lesbianism, this, in turn, would develop a stigma towards the community which would spread like a plague across society which was fueled only by the wildfires of mass media, as the medicalization of lesbian identity soon turned into commodification. Two particular notions that I applaud Faderman upon in contrast to Stein was her increased attention to mass media and its reinforcement towards the stigma of lesbian identity as shared by the general public and the mention of the bisexual identity. Stein words only approached one general audience and that audience was middle-class, Caucasian females, in contrast to Faderman who attempts to speak upon the vast array of identities and intersections that encompasses the lesbian identity. The 1930’s onward were embodied by literature, movies, and plays, that attempted to share upon the general idea of how a lesbian must be perceived, mainstream perception of lesbianism came to be one of promiscuousness, sickness, and
As its meaning, we can easily relate to the situation of this couple. They are divided by the curtain of social, the curtain of the old rules.

The couples who had unintended pregnancy or had children without married received stigmas from everyone. That is the reason why Jig and the man don’t have many options to solve their problem.
Instead of doing it with a direct serious tone, satirist are using a more cynical and ridiculed but effective tone to show people about these problems. In A Modest Proposal, the idea of selling and eating the children itself is not realistic due to its horrible nature but the exaggeration of the problem actually causes people to focused on the subject, Swift wants people of Ireland to be aware of this political and social problem –high rate of uncontrolled birth – In I Want a Wife, Judy Brady is actually tries to explain all the responsibilities of a married woman, and she is trying to show us that “having a wife” is actually like a prize because it makes men’s life easier since they pretty much do all the things including working in a second job. Even though Judy Brady is woman, she wants a wife because even she thinks it will make her life easier. She wants to draw a picture in our head about what woman’s are for in those times. In this line “I want a wife who will take care of my physical needs.
Then, after talking to Jem and Scout about how people’s views in Maycomb were changing for the better, Maudie Atkinson said, “...it’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step” (289). The racism in Maycomb played a role in the Tom Robinson case with false views on race. It infected the minds of Maycomb citizens and brainwashed them into thinking that white people were superior to any person of color. This did result in Atticus losing the trial, but Maudie brought up that even though he lost, what he said definitely affected everyone
If we look at fictional characters Winston, from George Orwell 1984, they have major similarities. Their intentions were clear and the way the rebelled against the system are similar, but their outcomes are different. Winston faded away and government covered up his rebellious acts where as Rosa Parks became a true leader. Both of these people had similar intention, to rebel against society. Rosa Parks was fed up with the way her people were being treated and the segregation policies on the buses.
Jonathan Swift is an enlightenment thinker that uses satire in his writings to bring awareness to the political power and mistreatment of the people of Ireland, ‘‘he was angry or in a fit of despair over Ireland 's economic condition’’(DeGategno). Swift uses satire throughout his proposal, by suggesting to the people of Ireland that they should harvest the little children of the poor. Swift stated that by making ‘‘Them Beneficial to the Public", Ireland would be in a better circumstance. Swift proposed that the poor children 's guardians should give birth to however many number of children as would be possible and offer them for sustenance. Instead of Swift addressing the issue straightforward, Swift used Satire ¬¬¬¬which employs irony sayings- one thing while meaning its opposite—in order to present an argument.
As a result, the media plays such an important role in helping us understand and in showing how some scandals are very specific to time, place, and culture which is why people react differently to them.

Anne Fadiman wrote a successful award-winning book called, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, which highlights how the cultural differences between the Hmong culture and American medicine jeopardized the health of a little girl named Lia Lee.

(Martyris). Tubman was able to express herself in many ways using simple food metaphors to compare herself to other people or how she felt but using food to describe it. In 1849, Tubman feared she would be sold like her two sisters had been and Tubman escaped to Philadelphia.
