Marie-Claire has been seeing these movie posters for Valentine’s Day all over Toronto and decided to send them in. She writes:
…Hollywood manages to keep a firm grip on the roles men and women play in society (working vs being worshiped), how they spend their time (being social, doing active/productive thing vs passive consumption and adorning themselves), and how they feel about Valentine’s Day (what day is it? The best day of the year!)
“Cards. Candy. Flowers. Jewelry. Dinner. …What a day.”
“Work. Business lunch. Trainer. Happy Hour. Ballgame. …What day is it again?”Lisa Wade, PhD is an Associate Professor at Tulane University.
