This image also represents what “feminists describe men’s power as a system of patriarchy” (Anderson, 405). This ideology highlights “ patriarchy as part of the structure of the society. In such a system, patriarchy structures the many social institutions that regulate and determine the nature of women’s lives” evidently leading to the markets and advertisments we percieve everyday. The affects that advertisments such as this one has on females becomes deterimental to their self-esteem and mental health. There are various insistences in society where women are discriminated agaisnt and advertisments in the media are just one of them, but it is important to grasp that advertisments for as long as we can remember. When personally exposed to such advertisments, I long for a future in which I would not have to fear the well-being of my children due to what society can expose them to at such a young age.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
