How 'roseanne', The Tv Show Relates To The Sociological Aspect Of Women And Work. I Had To Write This For An Extra Credit Paper, It's Not Great, But It Gets The Point Across

524 words - 3 pages

Ever since I started college in the fall, I haven't really been able towatch as much television that I would like to. I have been able too catchsnippets here and there, but nothing really "in depth". One show that I usedto watch was Roseanne. Some of the things that seem natural to thecharacters on the show reflect what we have been studying all semester inthis class.Roseanne, a wife and a mother of three, is a stubborn, loud, andobnoxious character. She works on and off in a diner and most likelyreceives minimum wage. Whenever she is ...view middle of the document...

The relationship between the television show and our discussions inclass are uncanny. The wealthy male owns the business, or runs it, and thefemales work their butts off. The women that work at the diner are allmiddle-aged, some are married, some are not, and they all hate the job witha passion. The book we read Nickel and Dimed also can relate to Roseanne.The women work as many hours as possible and they all hate it.Within the dual labor market, Roseanne works in the secondary labormarket. Her job at the diner is menial, it's low paying, there is nostability, and there are few opportunities to advance. Roseanne and herother female coworkers seem to accept these minimums with a shrug of theirshoulders, which I don't understand completely.Some other television shows that I have watched also relate to thiscourse, like Ally McBeal and Sex and the City; all of the women portrayed inthe shows are thought of as unequal in a way. I've never really paidattention to the unfairness and statistical ways that women are treated insociety. We are looked at as incapable and incompetent. Wherever you lookthere are women in the media that are thought of as inferior to men. Ihonestly believe that that will change someday.
