[…] Ann's climactic seduction of Jack and her resultant climax are set squarely before the footlights, […] depicted in a shrewdly inoffensive manner, however: one implied by Shaw's description of the play as a dramatic "distillation" of sexual attraction” (Carpenter 71)....

- Women's Roles as Objects in Music This past week's readings were very interesting to me, largely because I pride myself on being somewhat of a popular culture aficionado, and the role of women in music is an intriguing idea to think about and reflect upon. The article "Greatest Hits: Domestic Violence in Country Music" was an interesting reflection upon women's transition in American country music.

Conflict arises when women are criticized by men, for the way they interpret the guidelines. Critically, we begin with the Hindu scriptures, because it is the heart and source of their cultural norms which can be perceived as an expression of the perceptions of the way of life....
