Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Note: 1,7, Universität Bayreuth (Fakultät für Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaften), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Hausarbeit untersucht das Frauenbild in der US-Fernsehserie „Roseanne“. Dabei steht die Hauptfigur Roseanne als Mutter, Hausfrau und Arbeiterin im Mittelpunkt, aber auch die anderen weiblichen Rollen der Serie werden genauer betrachtet. Im US-Fernsehen wurden Ende der 80er Jahre die Familiensitcoms enorm erfolgreich. Den ersten Platz sicherte sich die afroamerikanische Bilderbuchfamilie Cosby aus der „Die Bill Cosby Show“. Die Serie spiegelte allerdings nicht den Migrationshintergrund farbiger Menschen und deren sozialen Hintergrund im Land wieder, sondern im Vordergrund stand ein reicher afroamerikanischer Arzt. Umso mehr hielt diesem Bild die 1988 gestartete Serie „Roseanne“ den gesellschaftlichen Spiegel vor. In insgesamt 222 Episoden wurden bis 1997 neun Staffeln produziert, die dabei enorm erfolgreich vom US Sender ABC vermarktet wurden. Es ging um eine durchschnittliche Familie, deren Probleme jedoch nicht zu vergleichen waren mit den Sorgen der Cosbys. Die Conners gehörten zur Arbeiterklasse und konnten sich kaum in der Mittelschicht halten. Sie wohnten in einem Vorort der fiktiven Stadt Lanford. Hier lebte das Ehepaar Dan und Roseanne mit ihren drei Kindern, der intelligenten und hübschen Becky, der aufmüpfigen Darleen und dem etwas unterbelichteten DJ. Ihr Familienalltag gleicht nicht unbedingt dem von anderen Familiensitcoms, denn es wurden einige Tabus gebrochen. Diese spiegelten sich hauptsächlich in Themen wie: Klassenunterschiede in der Gesellschaft, die erste Periode, Homosexualität, Teenager-Schwangerschaften, Alkoholismus, Drogen und vor allem in Armut wieder. Das Besondere der Serie war jedoch die Rolle der Frau. Roseanne war die erste Familienmutter, die nicht hinter dem Ehemann stand sondern vor ihm. Sie regierte die Familie. In einem Interview sagte Roseanne Barr, dass üblicherweise die Familienväter immer alles wussten und die Familienmütter meist nur entzückt waren. Sie wollte die erste „richtige Mutter“ sein und eine Botschaft darüber geben, wie sich Frauen wirklich fühlen und wie sie sind. Diese Themen wurden vom Publikum wahrscheinlich deshalb sehr gut angenommen, weil die Darsteller, allen voran Roseanne selbst, durch Spontanität, Schlagfertigkeit und Wortwitz ihren eigenen Stil einbrachten und die Serie mit Comedy umrundet wurde. Roseanne Barr, die vor ihrem Fernsehdebüt als Standup-Comedian ihr Geld verdiente, kam quasi von der Bühne ins Fernsehen.

From Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls" to Nina in "In the Heights" and Elphaba in "Wicked," female characters in Broadway musicals have belted and crooned their way into the American psyche. In this lively book, Stacy Wolf illuminates the women of American musical theatre - performers, creators, and characters -- from the start of the cold war to the present day, creating a new, feminist history of the genre. Moving from decade to decade, Wolf first highlights the assumptions that circulated about gender and sexuality at the time. She then looks at the leading musicals to stress the key aspects of the plays as they relate to women, and often finds overlooked moments of empowerment for female audience members. The musicals discussed here are among the most beloved in the canon--"West Side Story," "Cabaret," "A Chorus Line," "Phantom of the Opera," and many others--with special emphasis on the blockbuster "Wicked." Along the way, Wolf demonstrates how the musical since the mid-1940s has actually been dominated by women--women onstage, women in the wings, and women offstage as spectators and fans.

1950 - Seven year old Carol Martin lies encased in an iron lung, struck down by the killer disease, polio. Distraught at her side, her mother, Violet, wonders if this is her punishment - for Carol is the love child who should not have been born . . . Family of Women is the story of three generations of women: Bessie: scarred by a childhood of poverty in the slums of Victorian Birmingham and left a young widow with four children, is a hard, bullying woman who will go to disturbing lengths to keep her family under her thumb. Violet: one of Bessie's four children, marries young to escape, into the arms of a man whose life will be broken by war. Linda: grows up on a large housing estate in the 1950s with older sister Joyce and her beloved young sister Carol. Intelligent and energetic, she craves education and something more than the life she sees around her. Torn from her longed for place at the grammar school, she gives up hoping for anything better. It takes a tragic love affair to make her question the limitations of her life and the secrets which haunt her family. Spanning more than half of the last century, Family of Women by Annie Murray is a story of one family - and of the joys, struggles and changes in women's lives.

Women experience considerable changes in their bodies, lives, and identity between the ages of twenty and seventy, including marriage, motherhood, the dissolution of relationships, and menopause, all of which often impact sexuality. In Deserving Desire, Beth Montemurro takes a wide-ranging look at the evolution of women’s sexuality over time, with a specific focus on the development of sexual subjectivity—that is sexual confidence, agency, and a sense of entitlement to sexual desire. Detailed stories of the ninety-five women in this study explore how they become more comfortable with their bodies, when most begin to enjoy sex, feel confident and positive about engaging in it, and how they become sexual subjects in control of their bodies. Deserving Desire explores the complex multi-stage process in which sexual subjectivity evolves over a woman’s lifetime. As girls, they learn about sex and how those around them—parents, peers, religion and media—regard sex. Physical and emotional transitions such as having a baby or ending a relationship further affect women’s sexual confidence and desire. Montemurro emphasizes that sexual subjectivity is about feeling in control of sexual decision making and acting purposefully and confidently. Though adolescent sexuality has been a major focus of sociological research, few studies have examined, as Montemurro does here, the development of sexuality through women’s lives and the events that change the way women feel about themselves, their bodies, and their relationships.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem Pulitzerpreis Crosby, eine kleine Stadt an der Küste von Maine. Hier ist nicht gerade sehr viel los. Doch sieht man einmal genauer hin, ist jeder Mensch eine Geschichte und Crosby die ganze Welt. Elizabeth Strout fügt diese Geschichten mit liebevoller Ironie und feinem Gespür für Zwischenmenschliches zu einem unvergesslichen Roman. Sie kann manchmal eine rechte Nervensäge sein: Olive Kitteridge, die pensionierte Lehrerin. Weil sie zu allem, was in dem Städtchen Crosby geschieht, eine dezidierte Meinung hat, halten sie einige für überkritisch. Dann wieder überrascht sie durch Selbstlosigkeit und Mitgefühl. Sie mischt sich ein und macht sich ihre Gedanken über ihre Mitmenschen: die schrille Barpianistin, die insgeheim einer verlorenen Liebe nachtrauert, einen ehemaligen Schüler, der keinen Sinn mehr im Leben sieht, ihren eigenen Sohn, der sich von ihren Empfindlichkeiten bevormundet fühlt, ihren Mann Henry, der die Ehe mit ihr nicht nur als Segen, sondern manchmal auch als Fluch empfindet. Und während sich die Menschen in Crosby mit ihrem ganz normalen Leben herumschlagen, den Problemen wie den Freuden, lernt Olive auf ihre alten Tage, das Leben zu lieben. Elizabeth Strouts Roman erzählt von Liebe und Kummer, von Toleranz und Aufbegehren. »Mit Blick aufs Meer« ist ein weises und anrührendes Buch über die Natur des Menschen in all seiner Verletzlichkeit und Stärke, erfrischend ehrlich und unglaublich schön.
