This paper explains that the roles that people play in society are dynamic and evolve all the time. The writer asserts that there is not one particular role that can be attributed to women and women adapt with the times, with their position in society adapting accordingly. This paper looks at issues such as media, advertising, business culture and the movie industry which help society mold their opinions about what a woman's place in society should be.
From the Paper:"The movie industry tends to lag behind society's changes. Women entered the workforce long before they were portrayed as wage earners on the silver screen. This may have been due to a romantic notion of holding on to the past, or it may have been an acceptance issue. Although the roles women play change frequently, only cemented roles tend to be portrayed in movies unless there is an underlying need to develop the storyline around a non-traditional woman. As avant garde as the image of the movie industry is, this seem to be an area of conflict. Or maybe they are just as unbalanced by the constantly changing roles of women as any other sector of our culture. If the movie industry shadows the roles of society, what roles will we see emerge in films over the next decade? To ascertain this shift we should look at the one area of our society where women are assuming more varied and more non-traditional roles - the workplace."
