Was Marilyn Monroe killed?
Jayde Alberts Period 2
Marilyn Monroe was one of the biggest and most enduring sex symbols. She overcame a difficult childhood. Monroe never knew her father and the only memory she had of her mother was her smothering her in her crib with a pillow. Throughout her life she grew up in foster care and an orphanage. She ended up getting married young from being sexually assaulted. Her dream was always to be an actress. When she decided to follow her dreams, she got divorced and signed her first film. During her career her films made more then $200 million. During 1962 she passed away and it's still unknown. Some people think it was a drug overdose and others think she was murdered.
During the death of Marilyn Monroe their was many rumors going around. Some say she was murdered and others say she overdosed. Never when she was known as a sex symbol did she let other women know she was negative, if she even was. She was always positive and the media still shows that today. There are many current celebrities now, such as Lady Gaga and Madonna, that still try to follow her in her footsteps.
Their is many different stories behind the death of Marilyn Monroe. Personally I think she was murdered by the Kennedy Brothers. Although, others say that she was taking to many depression pills and either meant to overdose on her pills or she accidentally overdosed.
Their is different ways to look at the background of the death. It is very feminist and cultural. During their cultural, you didn't have very many women walking around in short, revealing clothing like she did. Many women looked up to her, but others also weren't expecting it. It is also very feminist, because she always was positive and promoted that women should be just as equal as men.
