"Anthropology" By Andrea Lee: Conflict

5 pages in length. Andrea Lee's Anthropology delves deeply into the preconceived notions of the inherent separation between black and white. Even though her southern family may live a life entrenched within white mores, the protagonist does not allow them to forget from whence they came, and she does so in such a public fashion that it makes them recoil in contempt and disbelief. The extent to which race, gender and ethnicity play a critical role in Lee's (2003) story is both grand and far-reaching; that the author's central character would go so far as to call her own family 'black' and be openly chastised for it speaks to the degrading tone associated with - and the desire to retreat from - the stigma of race. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

"Boys Don't Cry": Historical Implications Of Gender Assumption

6 pages in length. The impact of historical American gender assumptions and gender expectations upon Brandon Teena, the main character in 1999's Boys Don't Cry, illustrates the perpetual cycle of racism that has permeated society for centuries. When the student considers the extent to which Teena goes in order to live life as a male, rather than the biological female genetic composition with which she was born, it becomes very clear how unevolved society is as a whole when it comes to people living outside the ever-stringent boundaries of social dictates.

"Bring It On": How The Film Shapes World Views In Terms Of Gender, Race, Class And Sexuality

7 pages in length. Peyton Reed's 2000 production of Bring It On, a film that humorously portrays issues of teenage sex, is a primary example of how contemporary film shapes social views in terms of gender, race, class and sexuality. The manner by which this movie tends to instruct people how to perceive themselves relates to the influence that popular culture has over the general public. The image of power, gender and class roles in popular culture reflects significant patriarchal control, with the manipulation of the female gender a pertinent component of its objective.

"Charles Atlas Also Dies": A Discussion of the Societal Construct of Male Gender

A 5 page discussion of the implications of male gender found in the short story by Sergio Ramirez. Typically when we consider gender we consider how the societal construct of the female gender has impacted women.

"Lysistrata" And "The Wife Of Bath" - Sex As Power In A Relationship

4 pages in length. Throughout history, women have had one ? and only one ? trump card to play in an otherwise patriarchal society. The female gender has routinely been oppressed, degraded and made to feel less than a human being all in keeping with the heavy-handed tactics of a male-oriented existence. With nothing else to use as a weapon against such inhumane treatment, women have long withheld sex as a means by which to get their counterparts' attention; nowhere is this more evident than in such early works as "Lysistrata" and "The Wife of Bath." Bibliography lists 4 sources.
