Feminism Today In The 1950's
Feminism in the 50's was existent, but was definitely not taken seriously or making any major effects to the American society and community. feminism was going through an awakening during this decade, it was in the the new earlier stages. Women were extremely lucky and privileged to be able to still work after the war ended.
What happened back in the 50's deeply resulted to the amount of power that women have now today. What a woman was depicted as in the media was how a woman was expected to be like in society, but now that's not the case. The right to work the same job and/or career as a man is possible today due to the work and effort put by women back in the 1950's.
Tenants And Feminist Criticism
Miss Lonelyhearts is a single woman who lives by herself who seems to be doing well financially and ethically, but not so much socially. She tries to get back into the dating life but ends up slapping a guy because he tries to do what he wants to do with her, but she wants to take things her way, slow. Miss Lonelyhearts probably see's things as a woman should be happy on her own terms not a man's.
Det. Lt. Thomas J. Doyle
Doyle a detective who doesn't have too high of a view of women's opinion and intuition. He see's that intuitions as hocus pocus magic and shouldn't be taken seriously. I believe that Doyle see's women as sex objects that only live for men to use, nothing else.
L.B. Jeff Jefferies
Jeff is a photographer who says himself that he has a problem with a woman who is too perfect. It makes him uncomfortable and makes him feel like he has to break off all contact with such a woman due to his insecurity, and claiming that he isn't good enough for such a woman.
Det. Lt. Thomas J. Doyle
Stella, a nurse who feels that women have more of a natural sense than men, and have intuition making them wiser than men. To Stella women aren't afraid of their feelings like men are, and they aren't afraid to share those feelings.
Lars is a guy who likely feels that women should respect him, a man. When he would have what it would seem to be an argument with his wife he'd always lose, and she wouldn't take him seriously, especially when she found out he was cheating. To Lars women should take men seriously and respect them and never step out of line, or something bad could happen.
Lisa Carol Fremont
Lisa, a model, would like to do what Jeff does and thinks she can too. She thinks that all women have a specific travel kit including a purse, make up, and jewelry. However, even though she thinks this, Lisa isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. Whenever Lisa feels the impulse to do something she'll hop right to it.
