I wrote this paper during my junior year for a research project for my Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies course. While I majored in Economics and International Relations, I took several classes in the Women’s and Gender Studies department in order to apply some of the topics and theories to my majors. My involvement with Students for Women’ Awareness Network and working with the Health and Wellness Center and the Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center influenced my research topic. This paper allowed me to explore the issue within a variety of fields, such as literature, entertainment, and the media, which I may not have had the chance to explore within the realms of Economics and International Relations.
