Charlie's angels - full throttle - clip
Death and sex become one
Fight without breaking a mail
Why so popular?
Slides - Charlie's Angels, the Bionic Woman…
How tough are the female characters?
Feminine mystique -- women oppressed at home etc.
The girls are CHARLIE'S angels not the people's angels
Not a typical woman
Hillary clinton -- I can bake cookies -- I have this feminine side to me as well
Butch→strong, female that acts like a man
Sees husband then becomes transformed woman
Masquerade is part of being a woman
Ex. Woman head of hospital but she wants to also say that I have this submissive side. Or
specialist woman in an area -- she pretends to be powerless
Used against the engraved social norms
First: woman wants to conform to dominant social codes
Views of masquerade**
Dress a certain way and perceive an image that is not you -- deceitful
Woman in power dresses in a way at a party that would not suggest that she is not intellectual
Sartorial→doing your hair or trimming yourself
True woman is a soft one residing underneath
Woman may get this impression that she is possessed when she watches these shows
Innes→don't see Charlie - you hear his voice
Part b - because the images are not true.
