Susan Bordo - 1,092 words
Susan Bordo works at the University of Kentucky as the Otis A. Singletary Chair of Humanities. She also is a philosopher who deals with many traditional aspects of philosophy such as Rene Descartes and Sigmund Freud.

She is a philosopher, that is, who writes not only about Plato but also about Madonna and O.J. (Bordo 138). Much of Bordos work as a teacher deals with the representation of the female body in marketing and advertising. She feels that most adds in the past and present set up gender identities and play off of the norms of society in the rep ...

The Meal A Poem By Susan E Berger - 585 words
Fear, anxiety, and shame, these are just a few of the emotions instilled upon the innocent children and mother in Suzanne E. Bergers poem titled The Meal. These emotions have been brought forth from an abusive and domineering father with an insatiable need for perfection. My personal interpretations of the underlying messages found throughout the poem have led me to draw the above conclusions. There are only two lines in the poem that directly refer to the mother. Despite this lack of reference, the lines create a very powerful image to me, that she is a victim of abuse. The two lines, they are waiting for the mother to straighten her lipstick(11:749), and her mouth uneven as a torn hibiscus ...

Trifles As A Feminist Essay - Mars Vs Venus In Susan Glaspells Trifles - 1,640 words
After reading Trifles, one may think about the book called, Men Are from Mars and Women Are from Venus by Dr. John Gray. Both works tend to illustrate the vast differences between the two sexes. Due to such differences, women are often pitted against men. Mention the word feminist and most people think of the modern womens movement. Long before the bra burning of the 1960s, however, writers were writing about the lives and concerns of women living in a male dominated society. In Trifles, the women of Venus triumph over the men of Mars to emphasize the authors feminist theme. The feminist theme in the play can be defined by contrasting the male and female characters and analyzing the symbolis ...

American Women During Wwii - 1,808 words
... during the war years for many men hoped that marriage would defer conscription to the war. This alone suggests that women's roles as wives and mothers were still dominant during the war because the nation witnessed a 25 percent rise in the population aged five and under. The popularity of marriage and the traditional gender roles that marriage carried, was exploited during the war. For example, the Office of War Information, established in the summer of 1942, worked closely with the media. President Roosevelt soon denied the OWI was being used for propaganda , yet only months after the OWI was formed, wartime propaganda began to likened women's war work to domestic chores. These trends s ...

None Provided - 5,836 words
When we discuss our brain, we usually focus on the brains ability to think. That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks. Most of the time the brain is on autopilot, meaning that most of the activities preformed are just automatic. Our five senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, are automatically preformed in our brains. We don't have to think about how something sounds, we just hear it and we then interpret that sound. The largest area of our brain is the area that is set aside for vision, it is located in the occipital lobe. Dr. Gerard Guarniero has been blind since birth, a defect in which he has never been able to fix. Recently, he ha ...

The show offers a wide range of pieces from the technically proficient to the texturally interesting; all had a lighthearted quality. I found Joe Bot by Clayton Bailey and Untitled by Joan Brown to be two particularly interesting pieces that typify the exhibit. The Lighter Side of Bay Area Figuration is akin to Michealangelos whole career on a bohemian vacation (Hawaiian shirts included). Works exhibited ...
