Another example of betrayal in the movie Mean Girls would be when Cady gets all of Regina’s good friends to turn against her. Another good example would be when Janis Ian gets mad at Cady because Cady starts to get sucked into the popularity, this also shows betrayal. These all are examples of betrayal that portray the theme “you have to be careful who you trust”. In the play Julius Caesar the character Cassius is plotting against the main character Julius Caesar. Caesar thinks Cassius is a good man and that he will not cause any trouble.
Although some perspectives on the subject claim women live in bad faith and put themselves in situations to be defined as a body part, if there was no routine of male’s looking or the notion to dominate and females attention starvation or feelings to please, there would be no need for a dominant and submissive relationship. Overall it seems woman will be in a constant battle overcoming their gender because it’s society and that’s just how it works. Whether it’s right or wrong, at the end of the day, if nothing drastic is done for change, then it is what it is and people will conform to
Many debates have happened whether or not these women approach feminism for their time period. The answer to that is ambiguous and depends on how the reader takes in their writings. One can say that even though Wollstonecraft is so obviously pining for co-education, and in that way to be equal to men, she is not promoting equality for anything else. By not wanting to be equal in anything else, how can she be approaching feminism? Pizan so obviously from the start of her writing, introduces how women should behave (from the perspective of a princess), so that her actions shall be beneficial to her and her husband.
Compare how the Character is created in the poet ‘Medusa’ and ‘The Clown Punk’ In the poem Medusa and Clown Punk the characters have many similarities and big differences. Both poets have a sense of violence/threat but also sympathy and pity. Medusa is a dramatic monologue, a jealous, angry woman who is comparing herself to the Greek myth of Medusa. The Clown Punk is seeing this ‘clown punk’ in another perspective, a more close up way. Medusa can be related to the Clown Punk because although she was once accepted amongst people; beautiful and in love.
Female Chauvinist Pigs are women who sexually only objectify other women and themselves. Some women gain empowerment by disciplining oneself from women who are “girly girls”, while simultaneously objectifying such women like going to strip clubs and reading Playboy. Others gain empowerment by objectifying themselves through sexual appeal. Both are an attempt to gain status whether being through the attempt of acting like a male chauvinist or through embodying what society portrays as the ideal object of male desire. As an example, Camille Paglia, in an interview with spin magazine expresses “The people who criticize me, these
Annabella’s claim to be a part of ‘a wretched, woeful woman’s tragedy’ offers no solace to the other women in the play as she bought her punishment on herself. To what extent does the play as a whole appear to criticise or endorse the misogynistic attitudes shown by so many of the characters? T’is Pity she’s a Whore is undoubtedly a play that can be characterised by the sexism present in it, particularly in terms of the negativity associated with female sexuality. Ford presents misogyny through women and love, women and sex and the male advancement, but what is unclear is whether or not he endorses such an attitude or criticises it. This is best encapsulated in the debate as to whether Annabella can claim to be part of a “wretched, woeful woman’s tragedy” if her mistreatment was indeed her own fault.
Due to the limited amount of resources and the restrictions laid upon women for practicing rhetoric, it is astonishing how many women were still able to make a significant impact on the field of rhetoric which I feel has paved the way for women’s liberations rights today. Christine de Pizan portrayed the art of rhetoric through language and letter writing as she challenged the boundaries of women’s input at the time. She sought to save the reputation of women, who at the time were being slandered and shine a new spotlight for women’s advancement. It is imperative that more time and space be dedicated to Christine De Pizan in Herricks textbook of rhetoric and many more to follow. Christine De Pizan is a brave woman who stood up to the verbal assaults on women in the 14th century.
Module 4 Answering the Opposition ITT Technical “The Latest from the Feminist Front” What was your initial reaction to Limbaugh’s claim that “feminism was established so that unattractive women could have easier access to mainstream of society?” My initial reaction was that Limbaugh was being disrespectful to women in general. Al women have a right to easier access to society whether they are attractive or unattractive. They are still women and women should be respected as much as men are respected. His statement is also very insensitive. What are two of Limbaugh’s main points?
she demonstrates the absurdity of the men of the industrial era’s repeatedly and calls attention to the erroneous and backwards thinking of the times through comedic satire. A powerful example of such satire from Howe's speech is in her introduction. she sarcastically proclaims “woman suffrage is the reform against nature” and continues to point out the ladies present in the crowd and their physical, mental and “general debility”. she sarcastically demonstrates the “debilities” of women to a point which they couldn’t possibly mark a ballot or drop it in a box and continues to lay on the sarcasm as the possibility of a woman completing such a simple and menial task is impossible because “all nature is against it. the laws of man cry out against it.
Valenti provides many statistics of abuse against women here in the United States as well as examples of evidence for the mistreatment of women. Valenti's appeals began before she had written a single word, mainly due to her being a woman. She appeals to the emotional side of her readers, writing that we “cry with Oprah and laugh with Tina Fey”, that we are “fooling ourselves” into believing that a “mirage of equality...is the real thing." She is trying to explain that it is a sort of ignorance-is-bliss situation: look at all these successful women on television so how could equality not exist? She also cites facts, while maintaining an emotion, by mentioning George Sodini, who specifically targeted women in his shooting “killing three women and injuring nine others."
