Today at the horse show, I was talking with friends and the subject of tv shows came up. Someone was telling me about how in season 4 episode 1 (sorry I couldn’t find a link) of Ugly Betty, the character of Amanda was told she was brilliant, and she responded “Take that back, I’m beautiful!”. This is a perfect example of an issue for my Capstone project. Being smart takes away from a persons beauty is the message that the line sends. Women don’t want to get away with things because they are pretty. What women have to say is meaningful and shouldn’t be ignored. If women are only judged on their beauty, then what they say will never be valued.
