However, Nike has not always had the reputation that they have today. In fact before 1971, Nike was not even heard of.

The Male Gaze of Film and the Passive Glance of TV - Theorist Laura Mulvey is notorious for her claims about the nature of cinematic enjoyment. In “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema”, she concludes that a spectator experiences two main pleasures in viewing conventional Hollywood films: (1) a voyeuristic pleasure, constituted from considering a female figure in an objectified, sexual way, and (2) a narcissistic pleasure, arising from identification with a male protagonist and his ‘gaze’. (Mulvey 62) Central to her argument is Mulvey’s emphasis on the voyeuristic quality of the viewer’s ‘gaze’: it is an erotic look of power and of objectification, held from a distance, based on the fetishization of the female body....   [tags: Movie Film Essays]

Women in the Judiciary - ... Difference feminism, or different voice, states men prefer laws with rigid rules, clear lines, and neutral principles (Wolfinger, Rabow and Newcomb 70). Women want to look at the totality of the circumstances and apply broad discretion. This is the ethics of care versus the ethics of justice/rights (Kennedy 35).

The Impact of Social Class Distinction in America - According to Paul Fussell, and his essay, class is a “touchy subject.” Class is often noted as “any group of plants or animals.” However, when it comes to defining class as social distinctions, the word becomes more complex.

In today’s society, social class has become more and more intricate, but it has never been set to where Americans feel comfortable in their own skin.
