Merci pour vos réponses.
The notion " Idea of progress " is defined for me, by a positive evolution or an improvement of something or of somebody. Indeed, this can be a scientific, technological, economic, cultural or political progress. We can talk about progress in several different domains as the men's rights, the space quest, the communication and many of the other topics but I chose to talk about the evolution of the place of the women and the colored people. So, how changed the perceptions of the women and the colored people in the United States since the 1950s? To answer this question, I am going to present and to analyze different documents.
The first document which I am going to present is a poster of 1953 of the factory "Del Monte Ketchup". On this poster there is a woman behind a bottle of ketchup who seems surprised. It's written : "You mean a woman can open it?". The message of this publicity is that Del Monte made so easy to open the bottles of ketchup that even a woman can open it. In the time of this ad, the stereotype of a woman was that she was weaker and less intelligent than a man. Open this bottle of ketchup was an incredible fact. But for a man, this task was very simple. The stereotype of a woman was also that she had to look like a doll, always be made up, coiffed, beautiful with nails done and jewels. Thus, a woman must be physically perfect all the time, even to execute a housework. It shows an unrealistic image of the appearance of a woman. But this ad could mean also that a woman doesn't need a man anymore. It shows the independence of the women which begins to create itself in this period. I think that this ad is very sexist because it presents stereotypes the most known for a woman, that's a weak person. Despite the evolution of the status of a woman, the stereotype of the woman inferior to a man always exists in ads but they show it in a more discreet and a more subtle way.
The second document which I am going to present is Theodore Melfi's movie, entitled "Hidden Figures". It tells the destinies of three black women, whose works allowed big advances for the NASA. In the 1950s, the segregation is going full swing in the United States when these three black women enter the NASA. Thus they cannot use the same toilet as those of the whites, and they are relegated to secondary tasks much less glorious than those of their white colleagues. But the three heroines are going to upset all this. By their pugnacity and their scientific qualities, eventually, they will impose and break the social apartheid. Katherine Johnson largely contributed to the success of the first orbital flight around the planet of the astronaut John Glenn. In spite of the ordeals in front of her, Katherine Johnson made speak its talent and became essential for the NASA. Mary Jackson could not claim to an engineering degree. Her fight was to obtain the right to follow a course reserved for the whites breaking for it the segregationist laws forbidding to the Blacks the access to such studies. Thus Mary Jackson became the first black engineer of the NASA. Dorothy Vaughan and all the black mathematicians of the NASA had to work in an isolated section of the campus by virtue of the Jim Crow laws. She became the first black manager of the NASA. So this movie involves the destinies of these " computers in skirts " with the history of the American conquest of space, in parallel of the abolition of the anti-segregation laws in the United States.
To conclude, in the 1950s, the women and the colored people began to stand out in a society where they were considered inferior than the others. This perception began to step aside over the years and nowadays, they are almost integrated into this society because unfortunately, the discrimination of the women and the colored people still exists.
