There would be no way out of it, no hope of changing and becoming something new and exciting, you were stuck in this position and either you made the best of it or died trying to revolt. Women held no rights. They were forced to be robots, performing only for the men they had to seek marriage to. The only jobs that women were allowed to hold was that of motherhood, they were not allowed to speak unless spoken to and certainly were not expected to have personal opinion....   [tags: European Literature] 2178 words

A Clothes-Minded Society: Clothing as a Representation of Attitude in Romeo and Juliet - The Royal Shakespeare Company’s performance of Romeo and Juliet on 2 July 2010 at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, England was directed by Rupert Goold, and starred Sam Troughton and Mariah Gale as the title characters. It was a unique production because Goold chose to have Romeo and Juliet- and only those two- dressed in modern, 21st century clothing. The rest of the cast was dressed in traditional Elizabethan costume. The characters in Elizabethan dress are close-minded, and this was reflected in the director’s clothing choices for them, hence the phrase “clothes-minded.” They are static characters who are as restricted in their societal roles as they are in their clothing....   [tags: Shakespearean Literature]

Should Public Schools Require Uniforms? - When I was a child attending elementary school all of my friends loved the way I dressed, but there was also other children that attended school with me that seemed inferior to me simply because of how I dressed. Usually the children that praised the way I dress always wore nice clothes themselves, while the others who didn’t dress ad nice would try to pick fights or make fun of children that did dress nice. Later on in my life as I approached high school the tables turned; the teenagers who dressed nice became the ones who picked on other students in school because of the low quality clothes certain students wore in school, this would result in student violence....   [tags: Education ]

The oxymorons, animations, images, and paradox in this poem display the author’s enjoyment of true uniqueness. The animations in “Delight in Disorder” show how the speaker sees the clothing as having a will of it’s own that makes the outfit more “bewitch[ing]” (13). For example, the author cites a “tempestuous petticoat” and a “careless shoestring” as things that cause the woman’s dress to be unique and intriguing (9, 10)....   [tags: essays research papers] 492 words

The wide availability of fast food and second kitchens has led to high obesity rates. However, the availability is only the product of intense consumer demands. Fast food manufacturers would only supply ridiculously unhealthy food if and only if the consumers had a high demand for such garbage.

Fashion Letter (informal) - What is fashion. Is it the way you walk. The way you style your hair. Your attitude. One of the most common things I think of when I think of fashion is clothing. I think the media has somehow imbedded this in my mind. I thought that it would help me if I looked up what fashion is in the dictionary for this letter.

Ten Thousand Proud Elephants - Ten Thousand Proud Elephants I wore a dress to the gay pride parade this year. It’s a grand parade, fun filled with hundreds of stories like this, and how people go there looking for voice and they scream so loud for it that they come home voiceless. I wore my voice in the threads of a dress. I’m not gay but these are the bravest, most respectable people I’ve ever seen, and I wore a dress for hope that people feel safe to be people. The day began with a beer breakfast morning. My lover, Stephanie and I walked our dog, bleu (whom we think is secretly gay), and then came home to countless phone calls from friends planning to get together, all of them recognizing that the reason they were doing so was because they had dreamt the night before that people in the world started to make plans to get together....   [tags: Personal Narrative Homosexuality Essays] 846 words
