Sex At Any Cost: How Gender Inequality, Capitalism, And Pornography Are Driving A $99 Billion Industry, Gina Vucci
Senior Theses and Capstone Projects
There are more slaves today than at any other time in human history. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that there are more than 40 million slaves worldwide. This paper accompanies a 6-part webinar series of the same title that explores how gender inequality, capitalism, and pornography are driving a $99 billion illegal industry. The paper begins by defining what human trafficking is and includes both forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation. Six primary forms of human trafficking are explored, including domestic servitude, bonded labor, child slavery, sex trafficking, and forced marriage. Next, the paper explores who the victims of ...

Empowerment, Resistance And The Birth Control Pill: A Feminist Analysis Of Contraception In The Developing World, 2019 Wake Forest University
Empowerment, Resistance And The Birth Control Pill: A Feminist Analysis Of Contraception In The Developing World, Abigail S. Trombley
Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Politics, Economics and World Affairs
The vast majority of literature on the use of contraception focuses on its frequently documented connection to socioeconomic development. Thus, contraception has become a favored programmatic element of western organizations that deliver it to women in the developing world. I analyze discourse from transnational organizations that advocate for women’s use of birth control in the developing world, as well as deliver contraceptive services themselves, in order to uncover the dominance of liberal, capitalist assumptions therein. A primary consequence of this discourse is the reconstruction of colonial relations between the global north and global south. My alternative analysis, informed by ...
The Ends Of Plot: Rupture And Entanglement In L’Amica Geniale, 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
The Ends Of Plot: Rupture And Entanglement In L’Amica Geniale, Victor X. Zarour Zarzar
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This dissertation employs narrative theory to contextualize Elena Ferrante’s successful saga, L’amica geniale, within the larger tapestry of European novelistic discourses. It engages with conceptions of narrative structure put forth by critics like Ortega y Gasset, Brooks, and Winnett to understand how L’amica geniale offers cutting commentary on our exegetic practices and advances a geometry of narrative entanglement. I contend that Ferrante recuperates and italicizes nineteenth-century modes of storytelling, displaying a form of epistemological tension rooted in a movement away from a belief in plot’s semantic potentialities and into the postulation of a poetics of smarginatura ...
Dead Men Walking: An Analysis Of Working-Class Masculinity In Post-2008 Hollywood Film, 2019 The University of Western Ontario
Dead Men Walking: An Analysis Of Working-Class Masculinity In Post-2008 Hollywood Film, Ryan Schroeder
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Working-class masculinity has lost its steam. Since 2008, a sub-genre of Hollywood films has emerged that depicts the current crisis, and imminent demise, of working-class masculinity in the United States. The 2008 financial crisis has had devastating effects on the American economy, and particularly the working-class, whose precarious economic position has only been exacerbated under neoliberalism. These effects have become the thematic focus of a fringe genre of films, which show how the destabilization of the American economy has incited greater instability in gender relations, and has had an acute impact on working-class men. This thesis proceeds by analyzing how ...
Just Between Us Girls: Discursive Spaces From America's First Gay Magazine To The World's Last Website For Queer Women, 1947-2019, Josie Rush
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Just Between Us Girls charts the diffusion of queer theory outside of the academy, using convergence theory to examine communication technologies like periodicals and the Web to argue for a conception of queer theory that includes discourse between queer women about queerness. In making this argument, this project creates a lineage of discursive spaces by, for, and about queer women, putting content from these spaces in conversation with canonical queer theorists like Judith Butler, Eve Sedgwick, and Jack Halberstam. Analyzing and contextualizing discursive spaces like Vice Versa (1947-1948), The Ladder (1956-1972), The Furies (1972-1973), AfterEllen, and Autostraddle demonstrates not only ...
Kink In Flux: Bdsm Theory And Sexual Praxis, 2019 Duquesne University
Kink In Flux: Bdsm Theory And Sexual Praxis, Celeste Pietrusza
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
The opening decades of the 21st century have seen a veritable explosion of representations of bondage, discipline and sadomasochism (BDSM) and kink practices in mainstream media and American culture. Along with this, empirical researchers working in sexuality studies continue to show, contrary to the history of stigmatizing accounts in the history of clinical psychology, no evidence of increased pathology and, in some studies, better outcomes on measures of mental health.
Given the legacy of psychoanalysis in foregrounding considerations of sadomasochism and sexuality for the human psyche, it seems particularly well positioned to approach the complexities of dynamic fantasies involved ...

The Comfort Women’S Activism Through The Arts, 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
The Comfort Women’S Activism Through The Arts, Christina Karapinar
This essay explores how "comfort women", used as sexual slaves, turned to art to showcase the deep emotional scars they suffered. The comfort women use different forms of artistic expressions to start the healing process within their lives. Before I talk about the artwork, I will refer to how the comfort women manifested to become one of history’s inequalities of human rights and torture.
Missing From Research: Exposing The Deficit In Knowledge And Research Of Endometriosis And Women’S Health, 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
Missing From Research: Exposing The Deficit In Knowledge And Research Of Endometriosis And Women’S Health, Kelsie Kupiec
Endometriosis, one of the many reproductive health related diseases that specifically impact female bodies, could be either less prevalent, or less excruciating in a society that integrates a feminist approach to health care. As one of the many women impacted by the disease, I could be living a less painful and distressing life. I would not be the one in the “one of ten women” who exist with an inferior quality of life due to the lack of knowledge and research surrounding women's health.
Growing Up A Witness, 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
Growing Up A Witness, Kayla Sorenson
In this essay, I pose the question: Is there freedom for women in religion? I set out to find if there is the possibility for women to find liberation within a religious institution. In order to find the answer, I look within my own upbringing and the experiences of the women within my family that have the Jehovah’s Witness religion in their lives. I found that the institution is inherently patriarchal and poses a danger to women within it. However, women are able to find beliefs that allow fluidity and autonomy once they step outside of the bounds that ...
Readying The Rape Rack: Feminism And The Exploitation Of Non-Human Reproductive Systems, 2019 The College at Brockport, State University of New York
Readying The Rape Rack: Feminism And The Exploitation Of Non-Human Reproductive Systems, Mackenzie L. April
In this paper I will discuss the sexual exploitation of non-human bodies, specifically, dairy cows. As a vegan and animal rights activist, I feel compelled to take this opportunity to share and maybe even enlighten fellow social justice advocates on feminist aspects of animal agriculture, an under-researched topic that many overlook and might not even consider relevant to feminist discourse.
The Pretty Pink Box, 2019 The College at Brockport, State University of New York
The Pretty Pink Box, Allie Knapp
This essay focuses on the consumerization, capitalization, and popularization of feminism within mainstream culture: how it is branded, how it is portrayed, and who it represents. As a young consumer and feminist, I acknowledge that this needs to be addressed for the sole reason that feminism is not a trend or fad that can afford to die out for its goals and strife are far from over- when we water down a political and social movement based on equality into nothing more than a trendy label, we put our needs at risk. It is important to critique and question what ...
Why Are There No Great, Female, And Egyptian Scholars?, 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
Why Are There No Great, Female, And Egyptian Scholars?, Jasmine Mohamed
This essay is a study on the topics that Egyptian women shine their lights on. I write this because I identify as an Egyptian woman, and I never hear these women’s names during my scholarship. I hope readers receive a sense of individualism for the “othered” women who write their ways out of their binds. My topic is crucial because Egyptian women are bound to either sexism in their own culture and racism in others, which begs my theory of a third space.
Treatment Of Female Politicians And Impact On Voter Perception In The U.S., 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
Treatment Of Female Politicians And Impact On Voter Perception In The U.S., Jenna Bygall
This essay explores the treatment of female politicians in the United States government and the impact of negative treatment on potential candidates as well as voters’ perception of said candidates. Readers may obtain a better understanding of the stereotypes, double standards, and biases that are projected upon female politicians in the U.S. This work is based on a literature review of peer-reviewed journal entries, research-based books, and credible news sources.
The Abortion Fight: Neither Worn Nor Won, 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
The Abortion Fight: Neither Worn Nor Won, Angelica Whitehorne
This paper includes a narrative intended to allow readers to embody a kind of ‘pregnancy panic’ often overlooked in the politics of reproductive rights. In an issue revolving around the biological anatomy of the person, their own feelings, needs, and experiences are not often weighed in the arguments. Through this narrative’s character, readers can reconnect to the humanity of fear and bridge a better understanding that abortion is not a gleeful murder but a necessity for survival and medical agency.
