2 On September 7 th, 1968, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Miss America pageant was being held. Outside, a group called the New York Radical Women were protesting the social media’s influence on women. Hundreds of women gathered to throw bras, high heels, girdles, and Cosmopolitan magazines into the “Freedom Trash Can”. This was the first “bra burning” ceremony recorded, even though it’s still argued today if anything was actually burned. Unknown artist, Duke University, special collections.

3 Who is the intended audience for this picture? What was the intention behind the picture?

4 The intended audience for this picture is women who feel subjected to being the “cookie cutter woman”. Trying to look like the women in magazines just for male attention. These women were trying to reach out to all women through the media to deter them from going along with the rest of the crowd.

5 What does your eye go to first? What does the motion captured bring to the picture?

6 The motion in this picture is very important. The woman in the middle is throwing a bra into the trash can, obviously having just pulled it off, which is why she is clutching her chest. When first looking at the picture, your eye goes to the Freedom Trash Can first, because it’s in the middle, and also it’s the lightest color. The framing of the picture has put the trash can in the middle, to emphasize the purpose of the protest. By including the woman with the microphone, it shoes that this riot was being recorded or on a loud speaker. The motion in this picture is very important.

7 What appeals apply to this picture? How do these women appeal to ethos? Logos? Pathos?

8 This picture appeals to ethos/ethical appeal by trusting that these women understand other women. They’ve been influenced by social media just like everyone else. The woman on the left has a nice leather handbag, the woman on the right is wearing cute t-strap heels. Even though these women are trying to rebel against women’s conformity, they are also participating in it. Ethos

9 Logos This picture appeals to logos/logical appeal by showing the women protesting at a Miss America pageant. There’s nothing more publicized for women’s beauty than this pageant. And also they would get loads of media attention from being there, and being able to reach out to a lot more people.

10 Pathos This picture appeals to pathos/emotional appeal by showing the happiness and sisterhood of these women. They’re all gathered for one purpose: and that is to rid the female population of feeling like they must be like girls in magazines. Like all women should be pretty and skinny. These women gathered together to effect us, the women of their present and our future.
