Therefore Bauer points out how Lady Gaga uses an eccentric but “artful self-presentation” in order to free herself from the stereotypical norms of society and how she speaks against discrimination not only of women, but of all ethnic minorities. Furthermore the author indicates that Lady Gaga’s way of self-expression is kind of attention-directed as she uses her music and all kinds of mass media and social networks to spread her messages on a global scale. Being a female artist, Gaga not only provokes with her texts, with ß0weher visual aesthetics and her costumes, she strategically plays with gender stereotypes and sexual archetypes.

Critics have depicted their ideas on female genital cutting over the years through their extensive and eclectic research. A few of the well-renowned researchers on this controversial subject are Ellen Gruenbaum, Seble Dawit/Salem Mekuria, Isabelle Gunning, and December Green. Some of these critics have been cited in scholarly journals and articles that are still widely studied today. Through the critiques of these scholarly researchers and Alice Walker’s enlightening novel, we get an abundant insight into their portrayal of what female cutting is all about. The first topic that is evaluated by these critics is the idea that African women and children are working greatly to eradicate these surgeries from their everyday lives.
As a young woman I’ve come to realize that MASS media plays a MASS role in how women and girls come to see ourselves and how we fit into society. Mass media reinforces our patriarchal society and socializes women to believe they need to look a certain way and act a certain way to not only fit in, but to achieve male attention. This idea of mass media is defined in the textbook as “print and electronic means of communication to widespread audiences”. This is television shows, movies, books, social networking sites like Twitter, and even the music we listen to and the videos that accompany the songs. These messages are reaching massive amounts of people throughout America and the world.

To understand the rise of the women’s movement in the 1960’s and 1970’s, one must look at the cultural ideology of the time, as well as, other influences that might have sparked unrest within the female community. In the essays, “Cold War Ideology and the Rise of Feminism” by Elaine Tyler May and “Women’s Liberation and Sixties Radicalism” by Alice Echols, both historians discuss the women’s movement/protest and how it came to be. While the women’s liberation movement meant equality and the end to sex discrimination to many women, Echols and May offer different explanations on the rise of the women’s movement, and differences on the limitations that women discovered in trying to attain their goals through the movement. These differences in perspective may be observed through the historians’ writing, placing emphasis on how long they talk about each cause of the rise of feminism. To understand the feminist movement and their goals, one must first look at the history and popular culture before the sixties and seventies.
