    2,299 words
    ! SS Texts both inform us of the social identities available to us, and them; both police our social selves and subvert them. !"

  • Lesbian Standpoint Harding

  • Female's Inevitable Exclusion Through Sound And Language
    3,297 words
    The issue of female persecution throughout many of Hitchcock's films has been fiercely contested, none more so than the controversial issue of assault and the attempted rape of a woman. Views that Hitchcock represents the archetypal misogynist are supported, Modelski suggesting that his films invite "his audience to indulge their most sadistic fantasies against the female" (18). Through both the manipulation of sound and the use of language, none more so than in Blackmail and Frenzy, the idea of...
  • Nature Of Female Passion
    2,247 words
    Is female passion dangerous, or is it a form of empowerment? Historians and critics often look upon the 18th Century as "The Age of Reason". However, it may be more accurate to say that the century was marked by two main impulses- reason and passion. This notion is explored most explicitly in Austen's "Sense and Sensibility". However, it is interesting to consider the issue of female passion in texts that do not so overtly deal with the topic and are more ambiguous in nature. Defoe's "Roxana" pr...

  • One Female
    2,071 words
    There are many traditions in our culture that we never question, although they seem very odd if we take them out of context and look at them in an abstract way.

Or why our society demands it of us, in one way or the other, that we find ourselves a mate and get married....
