Marilyn Monroe was more than a blonde, beautiful, and talented actress; she was a bombshell that exploded in feminism and sexuality. After an abusive childhood and a few bottles of hair dye, Monroe found herself in the 1950s Hollywood spotlight during an era of suburbia and housewives. She fought the industry and bred a new type of female standard. Monroe paved the way for the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s and vast future generations of supporters through her ideas on equality, sexuality, and overall feminine strength. Ultimately, she was packed and loaded for the right amount of impact because her legacy lives on to this day.
'The crucible'; In the novel 'The Crucible'; I believe is the strongest force in Salem. The emphasis of my essay is to make you (the reader) agree with my sentiments. I will do so through quotes and acts of Abigal Williams. Through out the novel Abigal Williams does many acts to make her look deceitful, dishonest, greedy, corrupt, and as the twenty first century is creeping upon us yes even bitchy. Throughout the novel Abigal Williams is in search of a man, which she has seduced and will stop at nothing to make John her man even if it means killing his wife.
Pie in the Sky Among the oddballs and exhibitionists who clustered around Andy Warhol in the 1960's and 70's perhaps the scariest was Brigid Berlin, a chubby, motormouthed rebel from an upper-crust New York City family who relished the way her "underground" celebrity embarrassed her proper conservative parents. Her father, Richard Berlin, a friend of Richard M. Nixon and an admirer of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, ran the Hearst Corporation, which he had helped save from bankruptcy in the 40's. Her mother, Honey, was an elegant, ladies-who-lunch-style socialite of the old school. Ms. Berlin was one of Warhol's favorite telephone companions, and she taped hundreds of hours of their conversations, some of which were adapted into a play called "Pork" that flaunted the Berlin family strife. Like many of Warhol's acolytes, she fancied herself an artist and was one of the first art world personages to work with a portable tape recorder and Polaroid snapshots (she specialized in double exposures).
Like most trends, it starts by an icon and others follow their lead. The trend of flappers was started by the famous 1920s icon, Zelda Fitzgerald. Zelda was the daughter of the richest man in the South and she could get away with whatever she wanted. Zelda loved to drink, smoke, spend nights with guys, speak her mind and break society’s unwritten rules on women. American women copied her by wearing short dresses, wore make-up, dancing nontraditional, layering beads over their dresses and partied, “desperate to be as cool” as Zelda (Fabulous “Zelda Fitzgerald: The First Flapper”).
Do not be fooled by its name. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, created by Rachel Bloom and Aline McKenna, is way more than an impulsive, insecure and depressed woman with a promising law career in NYC and a miserable emotional life chasing her first love - 10 years after their breakup - across the country. It is a comedy with the perfect combination of drama, romance, satire and brilliant musical numbers. Sometimes it seems like we’ve had enough of the stereotypical representation of women in pop culture. And although Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is guilty of portraying women as crazy and emotionally unintelligent, it is never boring to watch the mess of Rebecca Bunch.
Can his sulky love poems win her heart? Nothing I say in this review can bring justice to master storyteller Cecily Von Ziegesar, whose research comes from her own life as an upper eastside, New York City teen. She has a reality-based knack for bringing cigarette-and-pot smoking rich kids into three-dimensional color. As naughty as these characters seem on every page, they are revealed to be real kids wanting to fit into accepted, meaningful lives as much as sleek clothes. This second GOSSIP GIRL book in the New York Times Bestselling GOSSIP GIRL series is an edgy page-turner.
King Lear 's eldest daughters take on the role as being "the ideal villains" ("Role of Women") who strives to embrace the power of the stronger "sex" from being to end. The deviant siblings only had an appetite for greed and were willing to crush anyone who steps in their way. Goneril is a ‘monster ' through the eyes of her own husband Albany( Lind ) because of her actions towards her father, while her own father compares her to an animal by stating she is nothing more than a "Detested kite" (Shakespeare 1.4.253 ), a vulture who preys on its victims. Her evil behavior and actions speak volume to her role and certainly reinforces Lear 's idea that greed turns people into animals. Lear sees Goneril as being nothing more than an ungratefully child with a beastly attitude (Lind).
Sexual Empowerment of Women in Behn's The Willing Mistress and The Disappointment "All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn, . . . for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds." (Woolf 91) Born in 1640, Aphra Behn broke gender stereotypes when she undertook a thrilling (if unrewarded) life as a spy for the Crown, but it was her scandalous career as an author which truly achieved many firsts for women.

save him at any cost!” The very man whom she called “the only being in the world who has loved . . . truly and constantly,” the man for whose safety she spied on the Scarlet Pimpernel, is cast aside for the foppish husband she fell in love with only yesterday.
