This film not only displays how the world expects teenage girls to act, but also how difficult it is for teenage girls to resist acting this way. Mean Girls is a perfect example of how girls, want to be like the plastics. You have the Queen Bee throughout the movie and every normal girl wishing and wanting to be like her. She’s like the Barbie, everyone wish they could
Cady’s behavior may have been partially explained by both the clique she belonged to and the power she felt among her peers at school. Mean Girls is a tongue in cheek look at the life of teenagers within a high school environment. It revolves around a girl named Cady who finds herself caught up in a wild world of backstabbing, manipulation and bullying. What started out as a sneaky plan to get back at “The Plastics” for being the mean girls, ironically, transformed Cady into a mean girl herself. The idea was simple.
Natasha Eason Engl Comp Sec 214 Sept 20, 2011 Ad Analysis Essay Cover Girl is one of the most successful cosmetic companies in the world. In this ad Cover Girl is trying to endorse the product Exact Eyelight Mascara. The ad to me seems to target young and middle age woman of any race or some men that think that they can make their women (spouse) look like the model in the ad. The ad uses white and nude like colors, very large text and a very close up picture of the model to show how the new mascara will bring out a person’s eye. It shows the four different shades that the mascara is available in on the side to try to get the target audience attention.
Burberry does a great job in using this need for attention in their ad. By not only using Rosie yet again to create a goddess of a woman who stands out but also at the bottom of the ad the words “The new fragrance for women” are written.

Kallie a high schooler says that she would buy it just because it is advertised by Rosie. Burberry fills in the the need for attention by offering this product which will help you to
They have committed to be on their side from beginning to end. Some students think of cheerleader’s as mean nasty girl or in some cases some kind of fantasy for some pervert thanks to the way they are portrayed in movies. Others think they are so pretty, athletic, and nice. Either way you take them for they always come out to be the most popular girls in school that everybody wants to be friends with or even
Regardless of the criticism she soon became a trend setter. She was a model for women in both dress and action, again just like Barbie. Some people disputed that "Gibson Girl" as a national standard for feminine beauty. They felt she would disturb social order but in fact most women welcomed the change (Gibson Girl, 2010). The caricature image became very popular representing American girls.
Maybe she has the most privileged lifestyle or she is the prettiest but there is a dominating factor that shows her as inferior to others. For example, in the movie Mean Girls, there is a pack of girls called “the plastics” and their alpha is Regina George, who recruits a new girl named Cady and makes her over into the newest member of the clique. The other girls that are a part of the clique are all fearing of Regina because she is pretty, rich and fits the ideal white high school female. “She’s the queen B- the other two are just her little workers.” (Mean Girls). Gretchen and Karen are Regina’s faithful minions who will do whatever it takes to stay in her good graces.
Logically, when people want to make friends, and “up” their popularity status, they are nice to others. In high school, it seems that girls do this the opposite way, and are mean to one another in order to bond with friends and become more popular. This paper will discuss reasons why adolescent girls tend to put down others, rather than be nice and respectful as shown in the movie Mean Girls. Most of the aggressions between girls in high school are not a one-way system. The issue of aggression at hand is more of a two-way process of attack and retaliation.

Claire Standish was the popular prom queen, wealthy conceited princess, but unlike her I was a highly sociable individual. When I was a freshman in high school, all I ever visualized was being captain of the cheerleading team and becoming prom queen of class 2010. Being prom queen would mean so much to me, as it meant just as much to Claire Standish. Claire was prom queen of her graduating class and to her it was everything she ever wished for, and something I was hoping for. So I worked
