Women's Role In Society

Here are two movies about the roles of Women through out time.  This is a huge theme in history gender roles.  These two movies show the role  of women, and the expectations of women.   

The Duchess

This movie breaks my heart!  It takes place in 18th Century England, and she is an aristocrat woman who is in a loveless marriage.  Her only job is to  provide her husband with a male  heir.  You get to see the expectation unfold, and how she reacts to it.  I cannot even imagine life!

Hidden Figures

This takes place in the 1960s America, and shows the audience the obstacles and discrimination black women had to overcome.  They had brilliant math minds, but because of the color of their skin they are doubted.  They helped put a man on the moon, and their story needs to be told!
