...(Contexts, American Sociological Association) “We Can Do It!” For many Contexts readers, these words will bring to mind the World War II-era poster of a female factory worker in a red bandana and a blue work shirt, her sleeves rolled up and her fist held high. This image has been widely associated with “Rosie the Riveter,” a fictional persona that represented (and encouraged) American women who joined the war effort by temporarily entering the paid workforce. Accordingly, it’s become a feminist icon, a symbol of women’s empowerment and solidarity. The poster is so recognizable today that it’s often parodied or appropriated for everything from campaigns to improve women’s lives to marketing for cleaning products. You can even buy a “Rosie the Riveter” action figure, complete with “We Can Do It!” emblazoned on the packaging. One retailer,, enthuses, “Rosie the Riveter is no ordinary gal! Her image was used to promote the Women Ordinance Workers (WOWs) during World War II. Her confident declaration… inspired millions of women to drop their brooms and pick up rivet guns and wrenches.” However, in their 2006 Rhetoric & Public Affairs article, “Visual Rhetoric Representing Rosie the Riveter: Myth and Misconception in J. Howard Miller’s ‘We Can Do It!’ Poster,” communications scholars James Kimble and Lester Olson argue that the image was never used in any such way. The idea that the poster was an inspirational call to other women is the result of reading......

American Icon

...Amanda Durham English 191-36 Final Draft Professor Glynn 1 May 2006 American Icon? Those of you who think Elvis is a cultural icon because of his ways of persuading his audience, are correct. In fact, I want to argue that he’s a champion cultural icon, the King of Rock and Roll, the Eternal Great. There are many reasons why this is true and I will lay these out in this paper. Elvis Presley is in fact, the ultimate cultural icon. He will never be replaced by anyone for many reasons. Thus, in this paper, I will argue that Elvis Presley is the ultimate cultural icon. For example, Elvis Presley and The Beatles represent the two poles of pop music superstardom. “On one side is the patriotic American truck driver with a voice that conquered the world over a two-decade career, and on the other hand, there are the four sharp-tongued Liverpudlians who came and went with the 60’s” (Webb). Former Beatle, John Lennon, once said, “Before Elvis, there was nothing” (Elvis Presley Quotes). “The question is, why Elvis? Why is Elvis—more so than Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and J.F.K.—consistently held up as an ‘icon of the twentieth century’” (Doss 2)? The reason Elvis is an icon is because he made an everlasting impression during his time. He was revolutionary. He influenced the teenage culture of the fifties and his music has shaped the styles of many recent artists. Musician Rod Stewart said, “Elvis was the king. No doubt about it. People like myself, Mick...

Vera Wang

...Vera Wang was born into a wealthy family in New York City. She lived on the Upper East Side with her mother, the daughter of a Chinese warlord, and her father, a pharmaceutical executive. Vera’s wealthy upbringing largely influenced her view on fashion. Her mother was very stylish and would take Vera to Paris fashion shows during her childhood. Vera states that her mother, “absolutely loved fashion” and “I had a mother that was superbly chic. She made fashion this adventure for me as a young woman. She viewed fashion not as superficial but as expressive.” (Zimbalist, 2007) Vera explains that from her mother she, “got a first class education with style, and quality, and exposure to European houses, and the kind of education that sometimes you can’t even get in school.” (MOVIE) Her wealthy upbringing allowed her to attend prestigious schools, including Chapin, a private school in Manhattan. It also allowed Vera to become involved in her passion, the sport of figure skating. Vera was a competitive figure skater until the age of 20, with the dream of becoming an Olympic skater. Unfortunately however, Vera failed to qualify for the 1968 Olympic team, calling it “heartbreaking”. (MOVIE) Moving past this disappointment, Vera enrolled in Sarah Lawrence College in New York. Here she majored in Theater Studies but then later changed her major to Art History. During her time at Sarah Lawrence, Vera studied abroad in Paris at The Sorbonne, where she was further exposed to French......

...American Icon Cassandra Brown MKT/421 Marketing March 9, 2015 Heather Teague American Icon So many factors are in the making of marketing a product; however, the important factor is the value of the brand. Customers are faithful to one brand and will not normally abandon that brand. Knowing that is the reason why companies spend so much time and money on marketing their products. One of my favorite brands that I am faithful to is the American icon, the Oreo cookies. It is true that Oreo cookies are an American cultural icon and for that reason is why I am passionate about Oreo cookies, with a great customer loyalty and an abundant relationship with customers, and with a lack of competition of the Oreo cookies. Passion of an American Icon There are many reasons that I am passionate about Oreo cookies and to label each one would be hard since they all flow in to one. As a child one of my fondest memories was visiting with my grandmother who always had Oreo cookies in her pantry. Getting to have those deliciously sweet chocolate and crispy cookies with a sugary creamy filling as soon as I walked in the door, I knew the fun would begin. Sitting around the table with my family, with a glass of milk in front of each of us, each one would create a new way, a favorite way to eat those delicious cookies. She made eating Oreo cookies fun by reaching out to each of our creative sides. It was one thing that we all enjoyed, unlike vegetables. It was...

A Fashion Icon Legacy

...Chapter 6: The Dual for North America Facts: * England, France, and Spain (Old World nations) were all competing for the North American continent. Native American peoples were also competing. * 1688-1763: Four wars convulsed Europe and the New World for domination. The American people were unable to stay out of a single war. The Seven Years’ War in Europe, sometimes as the French and Italian War in America, set the stage for America’s independence. * France was convulsed during the 1500s by foreign wars and domestic strife, including the clashes between Catholics and Protestant Huguenots. On St. Bartholomew’s Day, 1572, over ten thousand Huguenots were butchered in cold blood. * In 1608, after finding Jamestown, the permanent beginnings of a vast empire were established at Québec, a granite sentinel commanding the St. Lawrence River. * France earned the lasting enmity of the Iroquois tribes, hampered French penetration of the Ohio Valley, ravaging French settlements and serving as allies of the British in the struggle for supremacy on the continent. * The government of New France (Canada) fell direct control of the king after commercial companies had failed or faltered. The people elected no representative assemblies and they didn’t enjoy the right to trial by jury as in the English colonies. * Landowning French peasants, unlike the English tenant farmers who embarked for the British colonies, had little economic motive to move.

American Icon

...Acc 315 American Icon The first thing that I noticed paralleled with class, when reading this book, was Hoffman’s description of Ford’s business model. Essentially, Hoffman explains that Ford was designed to fail from the start. Hoffman says that Ford has always struggled to keep its products up-to-date and cutting-edge. For example, Ford had cut his prices claiming that the price cuts were beneficial due to increasing demand for his cars. However, this caused him to reduce his profits from previous years, and his lack of innovation led to a large decrease in market share for Ford. From the time GM began manufacturing multiple “cutting-edge” models, Ford had started fighting an uphill battle against international and national competitors. This is something we have talked about in almost every class. For example, Google is a company with a grand multitude of excess capacity, but instead of wasting these costs and doing nothing, Google has found ways to put its excess capacity to work and improve bottom-line profits. Additionally, Hoffman tells us that the management culture is sub-par, which has led to inefficiencies in hiring new employees and promoting managers. Even though Ford’s Business model was flawed from the start, I think that that tactics described at the beginning of Chapter 2 align well with what we’ve discussed in class and are crucial to Ford’s survival. For example, after posting a 5.4 billion dollar loss, Bill Ford took necessary actions in order to save......

Icon Analysis: Johnny Depp

...Icon Analysis: Johnny Depp Mikael Stoffer Baker College of Owosso Icons are recognized everywhere from producer, actor, model, worker, the list could go on forever because icons are anyone who is very successful and recognized widely as a symbol. An Icon has to be someone who is admired and considered successful to not only one person, it has to be a good chunk of people who can all agree that they are considered an icon to many people. But there are few people who would be considered an icon in the invention field because so many people are inventing things nowadays. But there will always be a set of people that come to mind when thinking of those few people in such a big field of interest like inventing, Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Bill Gates, the list could go on till you do not recognize anyone else. With actors there are plenty to choose from because actors can play many roles and be considered the star of the show or movie but even a side character can be considered an icon because they lifted spirits in a movie, but in most cases it is because they played so many roles. I’m going to be analyzing an actor that has so many roles he is considered to be Hollywood’s man of a thousand roles (Skillern, M.). His name is Johnny Depp, and he has played many eccentric and villainous roles that he is widely considered an icon throughout the entire acting community. Johnny Depp is the icon of Hollywood’s actors, one of the top 10 fashion icons and could be many...

Why are so many athletes attending fashion shows? Brian Mazza, the founder of Windsor custom menswear says, “athletes are instant icons and and household names,” and that is why he hired Ryan Lochte to host him brands pop up shop during Fashion’s night out. Having an olympian at a show or event will undoubtfully get attention from the media and bring in his fans and benefit the company. Besides there being a benefit for the company the athletes can also benefit. Attending the shows and events will extend the athletes moment in the spotlight. But besides the flashbulbs, reporters, bloggers, and twitters there can be many buisness oppertunites available at these events.

In 1987, she started working for already established fashion designers like Ralph Lauren, dealing mainly with accessories. Due the frustration of limited options that were compatible to her exclusive taste she began to designed her own wedding gown, commissioning a seamstress to assemble it. “This inspired her to launch Vera Wang Bridal House Ltd., in the Carlisle Hotel on Madison Avenue, New York City”.(bridal house, 2003). Vera decided to target upper class clientele, initially offering bridal gowns by designers such as Guy Laroche, Arnold Scaasi, Christian Dior and Carolina Herrena. Her background spawned her birth as a force to be reckoned with in the fashion world: the discipline she learned from competitive ice skating; the trips to Paris for fashion shows with her mother, as a child; her high-priced education; the mentors she acquired during her career at Vogue and with Ralph Lauren, who broadened her knowledge of fashion. Her background and understanding for the need to fill a niche, in the fashion industry, fuels her......
