Some adds that are trying to sell something so simple such as kitchen towels, fragrances, or fashion can easily become inappropriate, offensive, and sexist. The thirty five attached notes for variety of gender inappropriate and sexist adds focus on women and the way women are disvalued and disrespected. Women have been presented as sex objects and house wives on ads for decades. Unfortunately there were many well-known companies and magazines that used women doing house-hold tasks, being sex objects, and weaker than men. Many well-known magazines such as Vogue, a fashion industry, mixed violence and couture on the same ad, fetishzing gender and domestic violence while selling their material.
Case Study #1 The image of nursing is now centuries in the making, giving us a long history of mental pictures from Florence Nightingale to Edith Cavell to more recent images of Hot Lips Hoolihan and Nurse Ratched. Some of the more recent media images have portrayed naughty nurse images with multiple negative stereotypes associated with nursing. The majority of people view these negative images and unfortunately that will be the picture most retain.

As I read the entries from my reflective journal, I could see how my focus shifted from assisting patient with his basic needs at the beginning of the nursing school to more comprehensive nursing care today.
Chapter four heavily contributes to the novel because it is the chapter in which we are exposed to how the Big Nurse controls the mental institution, along with its staffing, resources and day-to-day activities. I will discuss how she uses this power to undermine the masculinity of the male patients and how her established matriarchy maintains a successful order in the institution. Starting with the staffing situation, I will analyze how the the Big Nurse maintains the usual order using the other nurses on the ward. Young Nurse Flinn talks with Nurse Ratched about McMurphy, a scheming new admission with a hidden agenda. The two discuss his motivation for wanting to wreak havoc in the ward.
The song, directed to various celebrity women, presents today’s modern woman as scandalous, with an unsung claim of reevaluation of oneself and purity needs to be reintroduced in the media. The band’s lyrics to the song convey a stereotypical Hollywood woman who is nonetheless worthless and disgraceful in her behavior and appearance. In the opening verse of the song, a scene depicting a socialistic woman in revealing clothing with an addiction to cocaine is introduced to the listener. According to lines 5–7 in the lyrics, rehab is where the authorities, or her publicists, have to send her to protect her image (Papa Roach, 2008)1. In the recent decade rehab has been used as a way to fix reputations.
It has been for many years, a subject that has not been taught accurately. People are often misinformed about mental disorders through mass media. Mass media has done a great job of forming the opinions of society in a negative way. They have forced people to believe that people with mental illness are dangerous and crazy.

These women showed a previously male dominated profession the essential role of nursing in order to lessen the patient mortality rate, which resulted from lack of hygiene and nutrition. Nightingale setup the St Thomas hospital, post Crimea, in 1852. Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910) became the first woman to formally study and later practice, medicine in the United States. The principles of domesticity provided the path of least resistance by which nursing could be recognised as a legitimate occupation for women. In the quest for professionalism, nurses were constantly confronted with conflicting assumptions on which their role was based.
In the novel Collins writes, “The girl tribute from District 1, looking provocative in a see-through gold gown…With that flowing blonde hair, emerald green eyes, her body tall and lush… she’s sexy all the way”(125).Collins makes it clear that society has a very specific image of what sexy should look like. In today’s society women are constantly being dehumanized in advertisements. Sex sells so most advertisements show at least one female body part. They always end up showing a pair of legs or lips positioned into a sexual form. In a Dolce and Gabana ad, a women is shown being put down by a male twice her size with three other men eagerly watching .This is degrading for women because it makes it harder for men to take them serious when the media has given them little value in society.
