Demonisation of Women

For those who did the Duman High Prelim 2010 Compre on gender recently, the writer Hanna Rosin made a claim that men conspired to resist the rise of women by vilifying accomplished women, e.g. Lady Gaga's music video "Telephone" and Polanski's "Ghost Writer".  See how Angela Merkel suffered the same fate over her unrelenting stance on the Euro debt crisis. Consider also the character of Miranda (acted so successfully by Meryl Streep in the movie version) in the novel "The Devil Wears Prada", and the hit Korean movie some years back, "My Sassy Girl".
