Native Americans did not have a problem with this affliction until this cent ...

  • Gender Roles In The Movie Showgirls - 619 words
    Gender Roles in the movie Showgirls Showgirls is a definite backlash to the typical woman's role in society. It is very interesting to me that a movie with this message is set in a normally deviant setting, when it is trying to portray the strength of a woman. I feel this is the reason that many woman did not see the film. They are offended, disgusted, and maybe even a little jealous of strippers. Strippers are able to be in control of the customers at all times. They have the power to switch the standard gender roles. For a moment, I thought differently when Nomi was forced to give a lap dance, but she turned the situation around when she gained part control over Crystal's man. I admire the ...
