Her pursuit of revenge and will of making 'corpses of three of her enemies' flips the whole scenario as well as her characteristics. By this time she becomes a distinct character and no longer remains a typical woman. This clearly shows the hidden strength of a woman which was suppressed by men.

The section is opened by a quote from Frederick Douglass, a famous abolitionist, stating that white citizens of America don’t truly understand what it is like to be an African American in that time period and how they are “ignorant.” The author’s message is that she understands that these criminals are doing something wrong in the first place, but she realizes that these people are already struggling to begin with. These individuals are selling drugs to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads. By doing this they are digging themselves in a hole that that can not get out of. Once convicted for dealing drugs it is nearly impossible to return a good life after you are released.
On the eve of the Civil War, the abolitionist movement and the opposition to slavery were very strong and powerful. While many people knew that slavery was a disgusting and degrading institution, there was not much first-hand information available about the inhumane effects that slavery had on both black and white people. In his narrative, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, Frederick Douglass demonstrates the dehumanizing effects slavery had, not only on African slaves, but also on the white population. In order to kindle the abolitionist movement and the opposition to slavery, Douglass includes his own personal accounts of life as a slave in America and utilizing elevates diction and vivid imagery

Minerva observes this moment of deep emotion in the face of her mother, one of the many women who has suffered the loss of her husband's fidelity; this simple moment gives direct insight into the hopes and losses of Mama, the strongest source of care for the Mirabal family. With the dictatorial power of Trujillo still bearing down upon the Dominican Republic and his recent interest in the Mirabal family, fear is even more prominent in the lives of the sisters and those around them. And the family's loss of their highly fallible father to another woman was not cohesive to the structure and stability of their already shaky world. As a woman, Mama would be expected to fall subject to the wishes of her husband, but it is often seen that her opinion is the one that wins out (probably due to Papa's unstable mentality and Mama's persistent care about the welfare of her daughters). Already dealing with the stresses of taking care of her family and Trujillo's ever-looming presence, Papa's infidelity is a blow to both her self-confidence and the familial structure that she has tirelessly slaved over.
Rosemarie Morgan thinks that continuous censure, criticism and frustration is precisely what increased his sympathy towards women who were coerced to conform to the men 's world (Morgan, 2006, p.15). This chapter of the paper makes an attempt to discuss the importance and the influence that the society with its prejudices had on the portrayal of women in the novel, with special focus on the protagonist Tess of the d 'Urbervilles. Social influences and prejudices include the oppression that Tess receives from her family, the church 's denial of a proper burial for her baby, and the society 's judgments on being a mother of an illegitimate child.

The psychological abuses of slavery: The author also mentioned about the physical brutality and how slaves were forced to endure deprivation. However, she mostly focused on explaining the mental problems of slaves caused by physical abuses. She and many other slaves suffered greatly from being denied their basic human rights, such as men and women were not allowed to marry, women were often required to sleep with their masters, and their children were sold to other owners, so families had to be separated. Therefore, the author emphasized that the mental cruelty of slavery was as devastating as its physical
Back then, all it took was a glance at an individual 's skin color to determine if they were in bondage. Therefore, I believe that people today are destined to be less optimistic.

However, if one were to attempt to give an informational speech in today’s community about slavery, the majority of the public would roll their eyes in disbelief.
The Constitution authorized slavery so Lincoln left this alone and did not technically try to change that (Pruitt). Although, Lincoln did make the first steps to ending slavery, and that was one of the best things our country did. Slaves were treated as though their only life purpose was to help their owners. It was very “degrading.” The owners physically forced the slaves to work and if they did not, they were threated or beaten (Hamner).

The inhumanity they faced for what?
The North was to blame because they became unwilling to help the freedmen. The North was beginning to think that blacks were not up to the challenge of becoming politicians. The people that had fought an entire war to free the slaves were now backing away. They were foolishly believing that the freedmen were lazy, arrogant fat cats.(Richardson, 517) The North knew it was wrong and false but they believed it anyway.
