My aunt was forced to see like so many women in today’s society that men want to run the show and control as much conversation as they can. The commonplace that was executed within this paper was to underline how men across the world have shared the same view against women for years. For example, I used this sentence; our grandparents grew up in an age where a woman’s place was to provide affection for her spouse and home, to show that indeed the commonplace between men has become a bit disoriented. Men have shared these widely controversial statements, and thus I wanted give insight on a more influential society. As you can see, I wanted to point out that the commonplace should focus on men coming to terms to work together and correct the problems they have created through the years.
Commercials often portrayed a woman as helpless if her car broke down. Feminists went to the streets, marching, protesting, writing books and debating to change social and political views that limited women. One young lady named Betty Freidan made a list of questions while in college for women to answer and after seeing the results, she discovered that at least 200 women were unhappy with their lives. Betty Freidan tried to write an article based on her findings but was turned down, so she took it to a deeper level and took it into herself to try to change these lives to be better and change the way women were looked at. Yes, but you need a bit more specific overview.
Hidden Message Never Been Kissed is a movie about a women, Josie Geller, who is smart but socially awkward.

I was the first born and was the only child till I was six, but during those six years I witness my mother getting hit by my father and him being drunk every day and never home. I was scared and didn’t know if this was okay and normal for my parents but what I did know is whenever it happened I was hiding and covering my ears. My dad would go on drinking binges for days with his cousins and would never be home, my mom would worry and leave me to go find him, usually he was at a bar or at his cousins house and she would bring him home. That’s when things would get throw, slaps would be heard, cries as well, and another beer opening. It got worse and not only was he hitting my mom but now me as well.
Assess the fashion industry using the feminist perspective Feminists argue that that in society men oppress women and that women do not have equal rights when compared to men, they argue that the family serves the needs of patriarchy and that we reside in a patriarchal society where males are the dominate sex. Feminists take a critical view on most things in society but a main one being fashion. Feminism itself simplifies down to equality. It is shown to be not about attacking men but improving society and having equal chances between both sexes. It states that many women’s focus is on her wardrobe so they can impress the opposite sex as they feel useless if they fail to impress, they also argue that fashion is a more female dominated area, they show that most of the top fashion designers are male ruled and that Radical Feminists such as Germaine Greer believe that all key societies (including fashion) have been found on patriarchy (ruled by men).
THE ESSAY QUESTION: What is patriarchy? What are the origins of patriarchy?Are women really discriminated and subordinated because of the patriarchal rules or are there ‘other’ reasons? Why? Why not? Discrimination of Women Because of Patriarchy Economically All over the world people are imposed by a system which declares them the boundaries between women and men and expresses that “the most powerful roles in most sectors of society are held predominantly by men, and the least powerful roles are held predominantly by women.”(Allan 1) This system is named as patriarchy and while it is shaping people according to patriarchy’s rules, people are unaware of this huge because after a while patriarchy is regarded as an objective system.
We as a society may change things, such as laws and how we view women in the workforce, but sexism will always be a part of our society because of stereotyping and men will downplay women in any way we see fit to hold them at a lower lever, because they need power. Men want to feel superior. To give a historical example, jobs that were once held by men, but became dominated by women, wages declined as women became more numerous. This devalued the work that women do both in dollar terms and in more subjective perceptions (pg 276). This issue leads to discrimination against men in the workforce, but this type of discrimination is "positive discrimination" as far as modern feminism is concerned.
It is thought that in a patriarchal society domestic violence against a woman by a man is inevitable as men like to prove their control. Radical feminists believe that for patriarchy to be abolished, which it should, then women must separate themselves from men, for example, they suggest ‘political lesbianism’ as to have heterosexual relationships it involves ‘sleeping with the enemy’, this male dominance over woman may be the reason there is an increase of same- sex and matriarchal families as men are no longer apart of the family structure. There is proof that this theory is based on truth as men and women are not equal, for example, men get higher wages in several jobs however, there is also issues other feminists and theorists have which is that females can also be abusive to the people surrounding them and it ignores the other factors for violence such as financial stress or mental health problems therefore domestic violence is not necessarily a way of gaining control. Marxists Feminists argue that men are not the main cause of women’s suppression but rather that capitalism is as it uses women to perform the jobs and services they need. This is because women as said to a ‘reserve army’ of cheap labour as they are taken on when extra workers or needed and then
