Kurali GranthamDr. Montgomery WolfHIST 2112November 5 2019Thesis, Outline, and Expanded Annotated BibliographyThesis:Television and the movie industry began a transition away from traditional American values, resulting in the emergence of new opportunities for minorities and women, but patriarchal and discriminatory beliefs restricted the level of success these groups could achieve.Subclaims:1.Television and movie culture opened doors for women by creating new job opportunities and changing the portrayal of women in the media. 2.Although television and movies introduced more liberal portrayals of women, society stillpushed traditional home roles for women at the expense of their individuality and individual pursuit of happiness.3.Television coverage of the struggles faced by Blacks boosted the Civil Rights Movement and helped cultivate a sense of national sympathy, yet they still faced many racially charged roadblocks that limited their success.Secondary Sources:Friedan, Betty. The Feminine Mystique. W.W. Norton, 1974.Friedan’s novel brings to light a new feminist view of the suppressive, domestic view of women in society. She describes how in the mid-1900s, society believed a woman’s placewas in the home. A woman’s role was to manage the children and the household. A woman’s individuality, although not even recognized by society, was to be shoved to the back of the mine, and women were not believed to have aspirations. Friedan describes themany limitations society placed on women, yet approaches the crisis with urgency, encouraging woman to forsake traditional ways of thinking and pursue true happiness.Wolf, Montgomery. "Civil Rights." HIST 2112. 22 October 2019,University of Georgia. Lecture.In Dr. Wolf’s lecture on Civil Rights, she talked about the effects of TV on the early efforts of the Civil Rights Movement. As she describes, TV’s popularity boomed with nearly one in every household.
