Akeelah demonstrates this trait throughout the movie. Her lack of confidence, one could say, is formed two-fold; one by her mother and the other by her school. Akeelah’s mother does not demonstrate confidence from the beginning. Her mother is barely holding her own life together, it is evident she feels her family continues this downward spiral (Akeelah’s brother and sister) and since Akeelah (who shows such promise, is skipping classes and failing certain classes), confidence is the last thing her mother encourages in her.

She depended on her friend Moira to fix everything, but since Moira has stopped fighting, they are now both in less than ideal situations. By making her internal beliefs clear and then depicting her conforming to and participating in the society that she so strongly opposed, Atwood demonstrates Offred taking actions that contradict her beliefs because she is afraid to directly defy the society. Consequently, Atwood shows the negative impacts of not protesting when Offred is taken by the van.

Formal schools have existed since ancient Greece and both boys and girls have gone to separated schools up to the 19th century.
