In the poem, the speaker states the girlchild has “wee lipsticks the color of cherry candy” (4), showing that she already wants to alter her appearance. As children grow into young adults, they become aware of outside judgments; as the girlchild was made aware in the poem. “Then in the magic of puberty, a classmate said:/ You have a great big nose and fat legs” (5-6). Girls are pressured into looking the way media portrays beauty. Unfortunately, outward appearances take on a more important role than other characteristics to teenage girls.
Lenahan 1 Crystal Lenahan Professor Kirkpatrick English 101 18 October 2012 Queen Bee and the Wannabes What makes a Queen Bee, the queen? Easy, without the wannabe the queen bee wouldn’t be royalty. The Queen Bee is a mixture of charisma, force, money, looks, strong will and manipulation. She can silence other girls and boys with a look, and her popularity is based on fear and control. Unfortunately, the wannabe aims to please the Queen Bee, doing anything to get in her good grace.
Rhetorical Analysis Final Draft Wonderland not so wonderful Many people think that Disney movies are a positive influence on children especially girls, but the real question is, are these imaginative fantasies a positive thing? In the article “Escape from Wonderland: Disney and the Female Imagination”, the author Deborah Ross analyzes a series of Disney films and their influence on female culture. Ross breaks down three films that feature a heroin; The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Alice in Wonderland. She provides both an informative and argumentative analysis regarding females of all ages and their imagination. Her evaluation is very successful through the use of imagery, sentence structure, and logos to get her point across to her audience.
Orenstein began with an anecdote expressing her frustration with the princess theme, then talked about different product lines with the princess theme. From there she jumped from criticizing mothers that fell for the princess trend to how Disney’s princess product line started and finally finishes with references to studies about change in different aspects of a girl’s life. Along with their differences in approach, there also was a major difference in effectiveness. Poniewozik’s article was much more structured going from movie to movie explaining its impact on a girl’s life and stuck to one point which came across very effective. Orenstein, on the other hand, jumped from topic to topic without much of a connection and supported her claims with very little evidence, so it failed to be effective in getting her point
I mean, kitchen set, dining set, clothing set...You name it Barbie had it. It was interesting to me because behind the back of the Barbie's box, it was a very inviting and warm advertisement that attracted young girls attention to feel so 'girly'. It appeals to young girl's at a very young age, to grow up(or be) that perfect young lady. Then, I looked at the side across from Barbie, and I became aware that the new doll's that is replacing Barbie, is Bratz. They are more new, flashy, glitzy, and flirty,
Kahlil M. Barrett English 1102 Susan Laplant 24 April 2013 Pimping My Child When a person thinks of a little girl and everything that she is supposed to represent, the first thing that comes to mind is a joyful little child wearing pink overalls. Perhaps she even has a little tea set with stuffed animals and Barbie dolls. They can see her hair in pigtails or little braids with hair bows on the end. That’s a pretty cute and vivid picture right? Now what if little girls who are barely 5 years old could now wear high heels, cake on pounds of make-up, plaster on fake eyelashes, and wear the brightest shade of red lipstick as possible?
In today’s generation people are a lot more judgmental, therefore many women believe they have imperfections and flaws. With cosmetics, this allows the women to cover up blemishes and acne that they may have, but people who prefer natural beauty could argue this
Compare the adult world with that of the children in the adult world there are more commitments, and you have to take more responsibilities. The kid’s world is more like a fantasy world. How does the mother see the world? The mother sees the world like it’s full of stupid people, she feels the world is boring, and lets her anger out on everyone around her. Find as many references to fairy tales/fantasy as you possibly can Fireflies, rainbow, where-is-a-rabbit-hole-for-me-to-fall-into, pony, flower, fairy, chocolate mint, velvet sky and Hershey bar roads, Comment on the narrator and style and tone Third person narrator, we get it from the children’s point of view.
Eliza Doolittle in one phrase: "She is not at all a romantic figure." So is she introduced in Act I. Everything about Eliza Doolittle seems to defy any conventional notions we might have about the romantic heroine. When she is transformed from a sassy, smart-mouthed kerbstone flower girl with deplorable English, to a (still sassy) regal figure fit to consort with nobility, it has less to do with her innate qualities as a heroine than with the fairy-tale aspect of the transformation myth itself. In other words, the character of Eliza Doolittle comes across as being much more instrumental than fundamental.
When thinking of how we were going to create her, we decided to use a white balloon to give her a pale face because originally she was dead. We gave her pink long hair to portray a girly appearance, but made it out of yarn to make it seem dirty and stringy, like a dead person’s. For the eyes, we took into consideration how much we can see through peoples eyes (feelings, emotions, etc.). Then we chose to use buttons for the eyes to symbolize inhumanity and to show how she prevents people from seeing how she feels. Next we thought about her outfit, we got an old dress from one of our younger siblings and made it all dirty and lovely because we thought she should be wearing someone else's clothing since the monster is created out of someone else’s body parts.
