David Everts Jr. English 153 Tenenbaums Essay Julie Hewitt “The Royal Tenenbaums” During the last class I participated in the viewing of a film “The Royal Tenenbaums.” The film told the story of the Tenenbaums family. Characters included Royal (father), Etheline (mother), and three children Chas, Richie, and an adopted daughter Margot. The film was of a 1970s feel. Royal and Etheline had separated when the children were still very young, but they never filed for divorce. Nobody in the family had talked to Royal in decades until he found that Etheline was considering marrying another man in which case he told her that he was dying in order to try to get back in the family but truthfully trying to stop the marriage.
 Connection to W.E.B. Du Bois Historian W.E.B. Du Bois claimed Freeman as his relative and wrote that she married his maternal great-grandfather, "Jack" Burghardt.  But, Freeman was 20 years senior to Burghardt, and no record of such a marriage has been found.

(Franicis W. Gagnon vs. Joan G. Coombs, 1995, p. 145). In February 1991, Mrs. Gagnon was placed into a nursing home, wherein Frank, their son, and Joan’s brother, came to live with his father in Shelburne. At that time Frank learned of Joan’s arrangement, and convinced his father to revoke the power of attorney, which was executed on February 28, 1991 which Joan was never informed of (Franicis W. Gagnon vs. Joan G. Coombs, p. 146).

In the film, Dadi is presented as the manager of the household because she is the one that assigns tasks to the women in the family. She is usually the one to settle disputes among her daughters and daughters-in-law and maintain harmony within her family. Dadi believed that women are meant to be submissive and work hard in the field and at home because that has always been the role for women in her generation. She also believes that women should serve the family by expanding it through child bearing. The women in Dadi’s family mostly dominate the agricultural process and distributions, and also care for the household.
Over the next four thousand years to the present day today, that has slowly changed. During the Puritan American era, the “father remained the undisputed head of families” (19). In Soto’s story he lives with his mom and no mention of a dad. Today there are families that have two fathers or two mothers or only one of each and not the other. In Soto’s “Looking for Work” the story is about a child's expectance of a family life filled with love and comforts like on television.

Women over time have been the subject of judgment, critic, and ridicule, having women’s bodies parts portrayed as objects and being objectified through advertisements creates the fight for equality for women that Jean Kilbourne has devoted most of her life trying to achieve. Kilbourne a feminist herself preaches the issue of objectification of women through her writings of Killing Us Softly. Killing us softly reflects the issue at hand by raising the awareness of objectification of women through certain advertisements. Advertisements Kilbourne refers to in her essay are the ones that don’t portray women in the correct way or show the proper equality women have in present day. Women being inferior to males, having their mouths covered, or being mistreated within an add is something that should be stopped or at least being acknowledged that it is a negative message toward women.
What stands out the most: I have never felt accepted by him. (Cindy and Doug are from my father’s first marriage. They were constantly in my life until their mother moved them from Iowa to North Carolina when I was 8. I was a middle child up until that point. Then I became the oldest child.)
My pant size is a 14; that is small by my family's standards. Next in line is my mother whom is a 16 but she had help with a stomach band, before she was a 24. As for all my aunts, none wear anything less than a 30, and all have husbands to match. And my uncles, all are 4X and up, other than one who is in construction and he's a measly 2X. I did not benefit from either my mother or my father's gene pool.
