Kornreich dismissed claims of abuse, viewing the issue as a contract dispute. She explained that invalidated the contract through a preliminary injunction would be an “extraordinary measure”- one that laked supporting evidence. The decision has been criticized enraged fans and fellow…

Rape is an example of the lack of control that women have over themselves and demonstrates how their voices are not being heard. These unequal rights are exhibited in The Round House by Louise Erdrich, when Geraldine is raped her voice is not heard and…

    each side 's support. For Kesha she mentions several prominent names as well as most of the internet and thousands of fans. For Dr. Luke, she merely says, “Sony, obviously. And for now, the New York State Supreme Court.” This references the enthymeme that if everyone is for her she must be right and places Dr. Luke on the losing side of the battle. The next article, “Why We Should Take Kesha’s Allegations Seriously” by Jenn Frank, begins similarly to McCarthy’s piece. For the first several…
