She does not want to be hurt like she saw her father hurt her mother. However, at the same time, she also romanticizes about men and wants to be swept off her feet and get married, which according to Dr. Nielsen is normal. She explains, “A poorly fathered daughter is often unaware of her tendencies because they are all she knows. She is often too clingy, dependent and jealous” (Nielsen). Mate’s clinginess is revealed when she romanticizes about men and obsesses over them.
The daughter feels like it's a world away from California. She also hasn’t seen her aunt since she was a baby so she feels like a stranger to her. However, her mother feels like moving her there for the summer would be good for her relationship. Also it would help her mom get her degree faster and they wouldn’t have to move anymore. To conclude the stories “ Confetti Girl” and “Tortilla Sun” had a lot of tension through the narrators and their parents.
Additionally, Beneatha refuses to “just get married and be quiet” (Hansberry 22), as her chauvinistic brother, Walter Lee, expects her to be. This is depicted by the Beneatha’s sarcastic retort to Walter: “Forgive me for ever wanting anything at all!” (Hansberry 21), when they quarrel about Beneatha’s high ambitions and unruly independence she gained through education. This illustrates her
In both Confetti Girl and Tortilla Sun, both narrators clearly have points of views different from their parents. In both, the narrators oppose their parents for being selfish, choosing their professional careers over their children. They put work above family, neglecting the desires and needs of their daughters. Both daughters are desperately yearning to be close to their parents. In Confetti Girl, the narrator wants her dad to listen to her, while he would rather focus on his teaching profession.
She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.
In "The Taming of the Shrew,” Shakespeare draws Kate 's character as an aggressive woman that nobody wants to marry her. On the other hand, Kate 's character is misunderstood by the male characters around her. She might be acting rudely as a result of feeling insulted by the idea that her father wants her to marry any man that would take her. The fact that she feels not respected and unequal to any man makes her act as cruel and tough as any man can be. By the end of the play she understood that there is no other way of gaining the respect and support she desires unless by conforming to her society 's ideas and act as an obedient
The two stories revolve around women who struggle with feminism in their own way. Enda is not the ideal “wife material” or “mother material” because she is not only committed to the man she is married to but also other men. the stereotypes displayed in The Awakening include Enda not being the perfect mother or wife which creates a bad reputation for her and people being to not trust her. Katherine in the movie Mona Lisa Smiles show a woman who is in a relationship, but distant although she is committed to her boyfriend, she doesn’t want to marry him when he comes to visit because she had started to fall in love with another man at the school she teaches at. Because both of these women feel distant from their husband or boyfriend, it allows them to venture off to see other men.
When they are aware of Hamlet’s feelings towards Ophelia they are convinced that he would just use her for her virginity then break her heart.

She suffers from psychological abuse, due to the way she is treated by her father and Hamlet himself. This is also due to her gender, as women weren’t valued in her time, or the time when the play was created. Some symptoms that prove she is a victim of such abuse are things such as her need for Hamlet and her father’s approval. She essentially breaks herself in order to please them both, because as a woman she is objectified and doesn’t realize that she doesn’t have to live her life just to please others. Mary Pipher, who wrote “Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls”, states that “"As a girl, Ophelia is happy and free, but with adolescence she loses herself.
That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. Daisy and Tom’s love wasn’t real love because if it was he would have been there for his daughters birth instead of God knows with whom. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays women as hopeless and better off being stupid so they wouldn’t process and realize that their husband didn’t really love them and that love is just a unrealistic dream. Further, a modern writer Zora Neale Hurston wrote in her short story about a married couple in a small community. Where the wife named Lena has an open affair in front of the town and her husband.
