Slade and Mrs. Ansley. The story tells a tale of the relationships of two women who in respect to their time of society would in many ways go against their indented duties. She used the knitting to show the web of lies, betrayal, and secrets that lie within a jealous friendship. The minor clues that enable them to better understand the relations between the women, their daughters, and the Eternal City help show this correlation and shows how while the story can be full of narrative to always look within. Edith Wharton was not a typical woman, so it is safe to assume she would not produce typical work.
Additionally, the willingness to acknowledge and consider questions is the key difference between Mildred and Montag character, and the reason why while Montag is dynamic while Mildred remains Static. From the beginning of Mildred’s life is empty and happy (as this next quote proves): "I wanted to talk to you." He paused. "You took all the pills in your bottle last night." "Oh, I wouldn 't do that," she said, surprised.”(19) Mildred’s inability to consider her unhappiness or believe that there could be something wrong with her life ultimately lead to her stagnancy as a character, remaining unhappy until the end: “Leaning into the wall as if all of the hunger of looking would find the secret of her sleepless unease there.
Martha Hale is not one such woman. Despite what men would like to think, Martha is an intelligent, observant, and strong woman. These traits are what allow her to see the faults in the observations of the men and maybe piece together what happened that night in Dickson County.

From the very beginning Martha is shown as a hard worker with a distaste for unfinished work.

Although Mr. Grierson was very overbearing and caused most of his daughter’s internal issues, he was not present for a great portion of her life. Therefore, he could not have a say so in whether or not she freed herself from the imprisonment he forced her to live in. The central conflict was not driven by a gender issue because the person responsible of the problems leading to the conflict was pointed toward Emily herself. It is clear to see that Emily took her life in her own possession despairingly for the worst. She was able to have complete self-control and freely make any decision she wished to make, but she could not rescue herself from the dreadful consequences that awaited
However, Lorde firmly disagrees with this ‘silent’ attitude and throughout her life she spoke out and refused to stay silent, therefore Maureen Mahoney claims that; “The strength and resistance of Lorde’s own adult voice was no doubt fed by these paradoxes of power and powerlessness, experienced acutely and personally, in a delicately negotiated balance between words and silence” (621). It could be argued that Audre Lorde learned how to find her voice from her sister Helen; “I had finally found out what my sisters did at home at night […], they told each other stories” and “I thought that the very idea of telling stories and not getting whipped for telling untrue was the most marvellous thing I could think of” (Lorde 46). Additionally, Helen is the first out of three women to whom Zami: A New Spelling of My Name is dedicated, and Barbara DiBernard states that; “Lorde’s identity as Zami, a black lesbian poet, is formed through her relationships with other women” (199). Another woman important for breaking Lorde’s silence is Gennie, their connection is crucial in sustaining Lorde as a female writer; “Gennie’s suicide affected Lorde profoundly and has been a major impetus for much of her work” (DiBernard 200). First of all, a poem for Gennie is encountered in Zami: A New Spelling of My Name which Lorde wrote after her suicide.
During Shakespeare’s time, the societal norms that cultivated women were very precise. Women were held to high standards both look and act in a specific way, but did society ever take it too far? Many poets during Shakespeare’s time wrote traditional blazon sonnets, ones that compared women to the most wondrous things life has to offer; gems, jewels, plants, and stars. Such beautiful comparisons were made, but the women were made out to be so unrealistic. Women had become a collection of objects rather than human, but Shakespeare shed some light on the matter at hand and presented a new way of thinking.
industry and was for all intense and purposes better than selling drugs without the same drama. Racine, never asked people what they wanted the guns for. It was none of her business and she had no time to pray for the nuts or the mentally ill, that was the government’s job.

Gertrude Monyenna is a divorced mother of two teens who was shot and is disabled afterword in an interview she stated that after her TRC hearing she only receives “... small interim payments, (Doc10)” of about “....600 dollars, [monthly] (Doc10) ”. She feels that “The perpetrators got their lawyers, got everything. They’re not struggling like us” As evident from her story, the TRC does very little more for the victims than provide symbolic reparations. This does not help them with their daily lives, in which many of them need constant care from injuries. This is such common knowledge that it is even in their comics.
Most incarcerated women do not receive treatment or assistance for these problems and are unlikely to meet goals of mental stability without the help of prison resources. Incarcerated women who have a mental health issue are unlikely to benefit from treatment programs so they usually don’t even bother because studies have shown the women who did receive treatment still engaged in behaviors that led to incarceration, implying that the current treatment programs are not
They also give reasons such as there are no bruises on her face, they never saw them argue, and why didn 't she leave. These stereotypes are used against all battered women however, most abusers choose parts of body that are covered and no one can see and they are really nice around other people, but very cruel to their wife.

Throughout the novel, Hester’s treatment is obvious, and she makes many efforts to not let her choice, and her illegitimate child Pearl, define her. She vows to never reveal the name of Pearl’s father, however it is later revealed that he is the ever-so-respected town Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale. Hester is more than aware of her exclusion from the groups of the colony, even though she was working to rebuild her name by working and keeping busy, “In all her intercourse with society, however, there was nothing that made her feel as if she belonged to it. Every gesture, every word, and even the silence of those with whom she came in contact, implied, and often expressed, that she was banished, and as much alone as if she had inhabited another sphere, or communicated with the common nature by other organs than the rest of human kind” (page 108). The judgmental community that Hester is a part of, ceases to affect her actions.
