Nasca Riverbend’s description of her life in Iraq before and after US’ invasion differs drastically from United States media representations of Arab woman and US government rhetoric regarding war on terror. Baghdad Burning: Girl Blog from Iraq discusses the war in Iraq and daily life in the perspective from an Arab girl, “Riverbend.” Women throughout history of all races and ethnicities have dealt with hardships or oppressions at large; however, the United States has gained a false pretense as to the “oppressions” Arab women have faced before the war. By grouping all the countries in the Middle East together and thinking the problems and customs were identical, United States has gained false view of what women in Iraq are really going through.
Obviously, his behaviour of “sexually charged looks and gestures” and “unnecessary touching” such as hugging is a sexual harassment action to women if the women were not willing to. And first, we should confirm this issue that Haddad really had done those things to female staffs and his actions corresponded to the reports from at least 10 women. Sexual harassment cases are hard to confirm because it rarely has witnesses, so a proper investigation should take place to the authenticity of Haddad’s behaviour, If it corresponds to the reports that he allegedly sexually harassed to the female staffs, he have to be terminated. And there are three “progressive discipline policy” that written warnings, suspensions, and determination, the reason I think he should be terminated , not written warnings or suspensions is that he has high level position in the company he number of victims is more than ten, it is a sexual harassment case that by senior management personnel to numbers of female staffs. If he does not be fired, and his behaviour would go beyond the scope of the company’s definition of sexual harassment, then many female staffs would be “legally” harassed.

Jill Stark’s opinion article, appearing in The Age 19th Jan 2008, outlines in a concerned and direct fashion, that most stereotypes seen in glossy magazines have a negative and dangerous impact. She contends that there is a growing trend for woman to produce magazines, promoting healthy and realistic figures, empowering the female. The headline ‘Sick of impossible princesses, real girls fight back’, indicates to readers how fed up the author is with these unrealistic stereotypes. Stark informs the reader that the traditional content of glossy magazines, with “extreme dieting tips and air-brushed waifs in micro bikinis”, is being questioned by ‘real girls’ who are “fed up with images of emaciated models and a celebrity culture pushing them to be thin, sexy and silent.”. Confronted with these images, the reader is encouraged to sympathise with the author’s contention.

Even when the media covers a story where an individual from the upper class has committed a crime, it is well depicted as one in a few, a flawed member of the upper class not to be mistaken as a whole. In other words the media is very careful of the subliminal message that it’s portrayed. An example of these messages, are the way so many news channels, and reporters, have displayed articles on the highly debated issue of women occupying combat arms positions within the military. Members of the military feel differently about this issue but are all still reluctant to see the daughters and mothers of our country die in our defense. Issues such as this are known as incorrigible propositions, though “we” the people of this society are the ones

If a women is raped then yes they should be allowed to have one, however; if a woman goes out has unprotected sex on purpose, and gets pregnant she should have to deal with the consequences she made instead of murdering a baby.

It is necessary to take a closer look at whether or not violence in the media really is responsible for this development and then to examine what censorship may entail before taking such a far-reaching decision. Many concerned people, ranging from worried parents through to reputable psychologists, deplore the ever-present nature of violence in the media, claiming that this is the reason why people are increasingly prepared to commit violent acts. They argue that violence is being propagated as normal or even entertaining. Violence is in the newspapers, on the news, in film plots and in cartoons. Violence is a source of laughter in children's programs; films present it as staple fare; it is served as pseudo-information in sensation-hungry newspapers and on reality TV; and it is even glorified by some musicians in their lyrics and performances.
