I saw racism in the movie for example when the cops target a Suv because they saw a colored couple, but when a white coupled pass by they don’t stop them or anything. The cop takes advantage of the colored girl because the cops are white and know they
Discrimination has shown up tremendously in this movie, but one of the few incidents that stood out the most to me was when the women decided to give separate bathrooms to the maids because they carried too many “diseases” that would harm others if anyone made contact with. This was very ridiculous because the bathrooms were placed outside and some were even miles away from the house, so if it was a storm the maids would have to

Prejudice Prejudice is defined as “negative feelings toward When she knocked on the door, the women at bridge club unsuccessfully hid from her. When she went to the window, she spotted a few of them and at first did not understand that they were hiding from her. She slowly realized they were trying to avoid her. When she got back home she told Minny, “They made me stand there like I was the vacuum salesman” (Taylor, 2011). This is just one example in the movie of prejudice that is bordering on discrimination.
3. Choose 2 scenes from the film and discuss what is important about them. I was very bothered by the comments Anita Bryant made during a televised speech that was shown in the film. She was an orange juice sales woman who was working to repeal laws that protect homosexual human rights; specifically in employment and housing. She described homosexuality as “tearing down the foundation of the family unit” and compared gays to prostitutes and thieves. She tried to convince the public that the traditional family was being threatened and that practicing or accepting homosexuality was blasphemy.

Lordede 's theory of discrepancy is very important for men and women of different Crenshaw mentioned in the article, that “the narratives of gender are based on the experience of white, middle-class women, and the narratives of race are based on the experience of Black men” (Crenshaw). Gender and race still influence women’s lives in the society, but this is not the case in feminist and anti-racist practices. An identity is silenced. Crenshaw trying to explore how this intersectional position can be considered when taking into accounts the violence against women of color. I don’t think that intersectionality is better than the discrimination against the poor. But we can think about that the effect of oppression in a specific time and society area. In other words, maybe we can use oppression as an action in the society.
There have been many stories about discrimination. It has affected people of color. Those stories explained how bad it can be for outsiders. Stories like that have had a big impact on society. Two stories that are an example of that are “Black Men and Public Space” by Brent Staples and “The F Word” by Firoozeh Dumas. The stories, “Black Men and Public Space” and “The F Word” are similar because both characters were discriminated against themselves, were not the only ones harassed, and each went through a tough moment.
The film reminds us that “slavery and its aftermath involved the emasculation-physical as well as psychological - of black men, the drive for black power was usually taken to mean a call for black male power, despite the needs of (and often with the complicity of) black women. That continues to result in the devaluing of black female contributions to the liberation struggle and in the subordination of black women in general.”4
What emotional reaction do you suggest the filmmakers intended?

No race should be discriminated and criticize. We should all get along and just be proud of where our roots come from. This film also intended for everyone who watch this film, is that there should not have to be obstacles to be proud of your own race.
Hi Joana, I agree with the other student’s response, your peer review is in fact very well organized. I like the main idea of your essay and feel that you already have a great theisis planned out. “Miss Representation” has a lot of supporting details that you can use to help support your claims. I also strongly support your statement regarding women and beauty. I agree that women have a lot more going for themselves other than their looks and can succeed in anything that a man can do .Lastly i like the idea that you directed some of the statistics that were used on the documentary. This is really eye opening and really exposes the truth behind how media is affecting women . Overall, your peer review is great and I am looking forward to reading
