Week 3

Women Read the Romance is a short article about an interview the writer had with a bookstore employee who advertises romance novels. Women asked why they read these kind of books and they all said something along the lines of because it helps them escape, because it gives them hope, and so on. Unsurprisingly, 65% of the romance market is under the age of 40. That is basically all, in a nutshell.
This is a trailor of the movie "The Notebook" and i think it is relevant and appropriate in this connection because it is pure fantasy and stuff like that doesn't happen in real life, atleast not my life.

Cathartic Confessions or Emancipatory Texts is a piece of writing on the public sphere of rape and discussions on the Oprah show. The audience is mostly women and together they give voice to their pain and experiences that for some of them is the first time they discuss their problems in public. Oprah Winfrey was highest paid entertainer in the United States, in 1996 and she helps people solve their problems and feel better about them selves by having her guests identify their problem, confront their inconsistencies, and then solve the problem at hand with her experts who are mainly women, as thoroughly as possible, while getting the audience involved. Oprah has a method of making private matters socially pertinent and she reaches out and helps her guests on the show. She makes a point that a big reason for rape is a lack of communication or misunderstanding.
