  • Gender Inequalities Between Men And Women

    women. Historically, rap begun as a way of expression speaking about life experiences and times of struggle. Hip-hop began as an art, a means of creating fun rhythm and beats, true entertainment. Over the years rap and it’s message has transformed. Rap music and videos often are portraying “successful” men with expensive cars, jewelry, and clothes. Rap is about clubs, drugs, alcohol and most importantly having numerous women and promiscuous behavior. The lyrics in many rap songs include derogatory language towards women and the videos portray the same ideas. Many music videos today display women, often nude, dancing and strutting around. They serve no purpose other than typically being some sort of commodity. In 2000, the rapper Nelly released a controversial music video for the song Tip Drill. The video displays a number of women dancing, stripping and shaking their bodies. At one point in the video, the rapper swipes a credit card down the behind of a woman. Not only were the women extremely sexualized, the credit card scene shows how women are purchasable commodities and reflects on the discriminating views of society and the hip hop industry. The images present in Nelly’s music video are common themes present in other videos as well. Women are objectified on numerous levels which create a false impression of women in society. A Commonplace article states, “Hip-hop has changed the faces of women in the community from a more positive image to a more negative one.…

  • Nervous Nellies Analysis

    I would like to examine Taylor Clark’s essay on Nervous Nellies or better yet her approach to explaining why women seem to be more anxious about life than mean. I believe the author did a great job in combining all three of the types of reasoning. She utilized the pathos style in appealing to our emotions by helping us actually take emotion out of the equation of why females react nervously when it comes to challenges. She showed us her authority on the subject by citing her book called…

  • Nelly Dean In Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights

    The epilogue I put above says exactly nothing related to what I wish to say about “Wuthering Heights” in this paper, but it still shows effectively it needs to take Nelly Dean to its center. David Daiches, the editor of my copy of “Wuthering Heights”, is reluctant to admit Nelly to the group of important characters of the novel without needing parenthesizes, and his very need to separately mention her name to recall her to the reader’s mind as one of the important characters shows that his…
