Women Of A Certain Class
After I read this story I just kept thinking, can we talk about the perception society has about women of particular cultures? How a full grown man can get sexually aroused by a woman dressed as a child is beyond my thinking. Women, who are enticed to work at little to no pay, is a painstaking pervasive reality in our society, one that is maintained not only by the people who participate but also by the people who create the environment for it to exist. The way the world views women and children and the often obvious overlap is painful and disastrous to our development. The manifestation of the way in which the world perceives women and their role in it perpetuates the options our society disposes us to. My question then is, where do we begin to challenge the systems and the people that hold these fixed beliefs of us being things that are at will, used, manipulated and subservient?
