Hack #5

In lecture today we talked about the feminist movement and how women were adjusting to the idea that they should depend on financial independence rather than a husband and that sex without marriage was okay. Putman brought up the book of Sex and the Single Girl and how it was controversial, which led me to think of how much society has changed. Today books and films such as 50 shades of Grey become best sellers and some of the most popular movies. Sadly, these films and books devalue women and portray men to be the more powerful figures. Makes you wonder what the women who fought for so many rights would think of how women can be portrayed now, and how women of today support films and books such as this.
