Legally Blonde: The Musical, is a hugely feminist contemporary piece and destroys and subverts many of the patriarchal ideologies that are inherent in our society and our media. It starts as a love story, as Elle, our blonde and bubbly protagonist, follows her asshole of an ex boyfriend to Harvard after he breaks up with her for not being serious enough for him. She takes the LSATS until she gets 175, an incredibly high score, but only gets into Harvard after professing her love for Warner and begging the administration to let her in due to love. She sings “don 't say no to a woman in love, don 't laugh when I say love” and convinces the administration to admit her. At Harvard, she is discriminated against for her femininity, her love of pink,
Although we have made abundant steps in narrowing gender inequality, patriarchy still continues in society and thus women today have yet to gain the same opportunities in the workplace. Even with acts such as the Equal Pay Act that passed 35 years ago, today, half of the workforce is consists of women, but the average workingwoman earns only 80.9% of what the workingman makes. There is also a lack of promotion in high positions for qualified women in the work force. These are just a few of the work place inequalities that females are faced with. Even with the many steps taken to ensure equality in the work field, the gender discrimination continues to exist.
I must say that The Maltese Falcon is one of the best books I have ever read. I also must say that the movie was nothing special, although I enjoyed it. The Maltese Falcon in no way strays from the stereotype that movies which are made from novels are not of the same quality as the novel. The movies usually do the books a disservice as characters are changed and often scenes are left out. I think that it is terrible how Hollywood changes the plot and characters from what the author originally intended.
Women excel in all fields and play a vital role in economic development of the country, and their contribution is nothing short of their male counterparts. However, there are still several issues and problems that women face today. Sometimes, they are not treated equally in their workplace and are considered as inferior to their male co-workers. Gender discrimination and inequality issues has been a reoccurring issue for years and because of this, it impedes single and/or married women from acquiring certain occupations or levels of occupations as males, receiving equal wages as males, and therefore affects women’s economic class placement in society. Gender inequality all began because of the patriarchal society back in past centuries.
Many laws and regulations are implemented everyday into our society, involving equal rights for all. But, even with being in the year 2015; there is still much discrimination and inequality seen throughout many different institutions. Gender inequality is defined as unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals based on gender. This has been seen for many decades now, revolving mainly against women. Throughout history to even today, men have always been seen as the stronger, faster, and harder working gender as opposed to women.
The movie’s opening scene is at the college pub where Zuckerberg is talking to his girlfriend (at that time), Erica Albright. Their conversation is about the Finals Clubs, and Zuckerberg starts to talk about ,the Phoenix club in particular. During their conversation he says to her how if he was to make it into the Phoenix club, he would be able to introduce Erica to people she wouldn’t normally meet. This misogynistic and derogatory comment sets Albright off and she breaks up with him, leaving him with one of the most memorable lines from the movie: “ You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd.
Perhaps, he used them to get the image of them as “uneducated stars'; out of peoples’ minds. Or perhaps they used him for the dame reason. Either way, their parts do not fit the roles they played. Regardless the movie was excellent and it was immensely enjoyed. The movie kept you at the edge of your seat from the ‘ghost scene’ on.
The fact that he picks a partner shows some post modern aspects of Hollywood. Both of these facts help sell movies and help define a hero in America today. Another aspect that makes McClain a post modern hero in America is the fact that he to has problems, James Bond was never like this, he always had a woman by his side, or falling at his feet. People held this man in high esteem, because he was perfect. However in real life blond bimbos at your feet don’t happen all the time.
This different side of Paulette is the reason I chose the song. “Ireland” is present about half way through the play, towards the end of act one. Up until this point, Elle Woods, student of fashion merchandising and sorority president of Delta-Nu at UCLA, is met by a huge shock. Her boyfriend, Warner Huntington the Third, who she expects to propose to her tells her that he wants to break up with her because she is “not serious enough.” Elle, outraged, decides that love knows no bounds and must follow Warner to his post-graduate program at Harvard Law School. She ruins the rest of her party-style second semester senior year by studying to ace the L-SATs and getting accepted to Harvard as well.
Therefore, he slowly began to give the impression that he wanted to marry her. Their relationship seemed to be fine until Lucky told to her that he wanted to put an illegal casino in her restaurant. If this were to happen she will have more customers in her her restaurant meaning more wealthy people, higher radings and more money. But she will indeed owe Lucky a lot. In Luckys mind this was a great investment because those wealthy people well eventually have a huge debt and would lead to not only having the contol of a couople of police officer but to have in control of hollywood.
