Sara would use her fantasy stories to fill the void whenever she missed her father or felt hopeless. An adult watching (ALP) the story remains unique and believable.

The vocal opinions of the child shocked the headmistress which engages the audience to the edge of the seat.
I contend that socialization theory, social cognitive theory, cognitive dissonance theory, and the agenda setting theory have all assisted the media in promoting and encouraging these drastic and life threatening surgeries as only a small sacrifice in achieving the ultimate ideal of beauty. FAME & FORTUNE’S EFFECT ON A WOMAN’S SELF IMAGE Heidi’s journey began when she joined “The Hills” cast in 2006 and the line of her personal life and her public life began to grow thin.

Fisher drew her audience’s attention by pointing out herself as a living sample of HIV positive. Like a lot of the audience in that room, she came from a wealthy family, and she was mother of two children. Fisher used rhetorical appeals of ethos, pathos, and logos in the speech to persuade her audience in the situation. Even before Fisher spoke, just who she was brought her a huge amount of credibility. The Republican Party brought her up on the stage on purpose, because Mary Fisher was a perfect example of a “safe” person to speak about AIDS.
In the feature film Mona Lisa Smile directed by Mike Newell, various film conventions have been used to convey the role of women in the 1960s. This film depicts Wellesley College, a women-only Massachusetts school, in the 1950s. It is centred in the classroom of Katherine Ann Watson (Julia Roberts), a socially progressive art history instructor. In this film, the traditional ideologies of a woman’s role in society as a domestic homemaker are constantly presented. These ideas are conveyed to the target audience through the use of lighting, a technical code which assists in uncovering the oppression surrounding women in the 1960s, and the symbolic presence of costumes.
Margo’s ambition in All About Eve is what leads to the downfall of her great career. In The Film it is quickly noted that Margo is an ageing woman and an actress that is beyond her years. She is also very self-conscious of her age and mostly keeps it a secret until she confesses to Lloyd that she is “40, 4-0”. We see though out the film that the director Joseph Mankiewicz uses lighting techniques to make Margo’s skin seem very old and weathered. Margo’s main ambition in the movie is to ensure that Bill still loves her.
After that, she joined a well-known model agency called Blue Book, where the manager told her to dye her dark hair to a platinum-blond.

However, whereas the latter established herself as a woman admired for her voluptuous body by projecting herself as a person unrestricted by any social norms, Marilyn achieved this success through her relentless desire to progress in her acting career and through her charismatic presence on the stage and in real life. Life did not begin easily for the baby girl known as Norma Jeane, who later changed her name to Marilyn Monroe. Soon after her birth in Los Angeles, CA, her mother underwent a mental collapse and was hospitalized. The future sex symbol grew up as a beautiful but lonely girl as she was moved from foster home to foster home, with an occasional stay in an orphanage. In an interview years later, Monroe commented that she play-acted all the time to run away from the dullness of her life, which did not include much education.
Throughout the opening scene of the movie, the director has immediately introduced gender stereotype with fast flashing shots of the main character, Andy, and other models getting ready. This film technique assists in contrasting between a working class women and a model; which illustrates fantasy and reality. Through the use of music, Frankel has successfully established gender stereotype in women with the lyrics ‘Suddenly I see, this is what I want to be’, while showing shots of glamorous models changing, eating their small portions and putting make-up on; this implies that this is the way all women want to be. The use of lighting is also crucial as the bright, white colouring of the models apartments portrays their glamour and status in society. As the models are changing, we’re given close up shots of each of them preparing for their day and the use of costume is effective because you see all the models wearing lingerie which shows women as sexual objects for men.
Leakes is seen in a clip arguing with her co-star Kim Zolciak during a taping of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (Reference clip 1). The general public may wonder how this woman can be so easily angered as well as use verbal threats of physical harm to another. Yet in this photo of her on the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globes Red Carpet she seems so poised and elegant as if she would not engage in public behavior as such (attached photo). Reinforcement to this behavior may stem from a self-perception of motivation, in which extrinsic motivation occurs due to her increasing popularity and financial success (Hardy, lecture, September 12, 2013). Extrinsic motivation is an ambition a person has to pursue activities that are negative or positive because of the external rewards granted or pressures from the environment surrounding (Hardy, lecture, September 12, 2013).
We laughed and joked together about how she uses to put on hair fashion shows in her neighborhood for her friends and family. It was strange to share so many similar child hood memories with someone I barley even knew, In high school Lakisha enrolled in the cosmology program, where she received her cosmetology background, and soon discovered the great profit potential in the hair industry. After becoming state certified Lakisha realized that booth rent is extremely expensive, and the hair industry is tough. After years of working for others, and paying extremely high booth rentals, she became feed up. Becoming a business owner was always a top priority, for Lakisha but money has always been the obstacle that stood in the way.
