    • How she gives out information/orders shows that she's in charge and for her to be in charge she must be respected.
  • 13. Comparing the two texts
    • Overall with both females being in charge this is unconventional as normally males like to be “the boss” as women are stereotypically seen as much more weaker.
    • Although both females are dress sense are similar their appearance is very different with height, hair, makeup.
    • Similarities though are that they both wear delicate necklaces being so delicate reminds the audience that they are still females and the stereotypes off being more emotional, weaker and more fragile then men still apply.
