My Great-grandmother Was Not A Person - My Great-Grandmother was not a Person My Great-Grandmother was not a person. Neither was yours. Up until about 67 years ago no females were. We were supposed to be pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen. At least that's the perception that the laws enforced. (For ex: The Election Act of the Dominion of Canada and The Common Law of England) As part of the British Commonwealth many of our laws were the same as England's and enforced by British parliament. One such law from the Common Law of England stated that "A woman is not a person in matters of rights and privileges, but she is a person in matters of pains and penalties." This gave women second class citizenship....   [tags: essays research papers] 643 words

The Book Sex Sells! - Sex sells a common phrase which turns out to be very truthful and also the title of Rodger Streitmatter's book, Sex Sells. The Medias Journey from Repression to Obsession.

Therefore advertisers manipulate this human drive and than offer their products as a path of love, beauty and desirability which is their main purpose of advertising. In other words the main purpose of advertising is to sell products and what advertisers must do to get people to buy these products is to make products desirable to the chosen target consumers....   [tags: Rodger Streitmatter] 1464 words

These airbrushed models whose bodies were “implausibly smooth and slick” and were “free of sweat and scars and imperfections”, were fabricated to be admired and adored by the public (Sanders 121).

What is on the surface “may have little connection to what [women are] feeling” as smiles are merely a tool used to demonstrate a woman’s “happy, willing deference” (Cunningham 151)....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Scott Russell] 1456 words
