What some may not have anticipated is Elizabeth progressing into a much stronger queen with age and becoming wiser during her reign even if it took her many years to realize that she had the supreme rule and ultimate call of a monarch.1 Elizabeth’s gender presented her with several types of challenges as the monarch such as the limited access important government officials and ambassadors had to the Queen. As a female, it was unthinkable for any man to walk into the Queen’s chambers at any time they
Everyone loves it when they are heard, the problem that occurs is how people interpret your words and actions. We all know about Rosa Parks, she was the women that refused to give her seat to a white man. After that there isn’t anything else we learn about her, we just learn that she was a staple for equal rights. In the article “How History Got the Rosa Parks Story Wrong,” Jeanne Theoharis talks about the common thinking of Rosa Parks and how it doesn’t represent her character or who she was as a person. Theoharis uses information from Park’s childhood, adolescence and adulthood, and her entire life to prove that Rosa Parks was a lifelong activist instead of a quiet symbol.
In Frank Beddor´s Looking Glass Wars, it is pretty much a twist of Alice in Wonderland, but not as crazy or goofy. Beddor changes it around so Alyss is princess in the magical land when her evil aunt, Redd attacks, forcing her to leave Heart Palace and all of her childhood behind. Her and the Wonderlanders have to persevere through the hardships of Redd and her army, The Cut.

Those were probably the two biggest acts of rebellion but there is still one more. After Katniss volunteered for her little sister at the reaping, the crowd gave a very unique response. Everyone in the crowd puts there three middle fingers to there lips
Without others coming for her, the thought-shaper’s may have left a valuable asset to their society. It seems as though important, known people hold the power of authority, but that simply is not the case. As the reader can see in the story, anyone with the right mindset can assume the power of authority without full knowledge and understanding of others. The Sealand woman is an example of this.
Alice is considered a feminist heroine because she manages to break the rules from society, like getting married or being told what to do. She rejects the female expectations and becomes a strong, confident and independent woman. We can see that Alice is oppressed, for example, when dancing with Hamish, she is delighted by her “visions” and he told her to “keep her visions to herself” or “when in doubt remain silent”.
It seems as though the rules that she has learned cannot be successfully applied within wonderland. Though there is a huge change of logic within wonderland. She learns that she must adapt to the rules within wonderland, instead of disrupting this unknown world with her confusion, she stays level headed and goes along with the nonsense instead. We see Alice’s progression of sensible thinking in the world that she has made up in her mind. The setting changes the course of Alice’s
In the Victorian age, children’s condition was a problem. treated as miniature adults, they were often required to work, were severely chastised, or were ignored. Exactly in that period Charles Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carrol wrote “Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland”, a novel that tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world. It is first of all a children’s book as it has a child protagonist; however it appeals to adult readers with its advanced logical reasoning, witty puns and trenchant satire of Victorian society. So we can consider it as a drastic reaction against the impassive didacticism of British upbringing.
One important theme that stood out to me is life as a meaningless puzzle. Every problem Alice ran into made no sense to her. A good example of this in the story is when the Hatter said to Alice, “Why is a raven like a writing-desk”(Carroll 68)? This riddle has no clear solution or purpose, but normally she would have been able to find a solution. These problems imitate how life frustrates our expectations.
After all Herland’s woman very rarely showed emotion, but now it appeared to flow so freely from her. This was the first time Van was able to see the relationship between Herland’s woman and the woman of his “civilized” world. Terry was finally able to bring one of these honorable woman down to their level and this was shown through her disagreeable nature. “Do you not see that he loves you!? He did it out of passion, a passion you have never felt and may very well never feel if you send him away!”
In 1910 women breaking through tradition and becoming independent was unheard of, and when an individual did, it became a revolution and changed everything. Tradition is a security for many people, it will keep order and have responsibilities to uphold, and is very difficult to descend from. Tradition is having customs or beliefs passed and acknowledged from generation to generation. Throughout those generations, a custom is typically questioned. In many families questioning custom is not commended by the older generation, who is determined to pass on their beliefs the exact way they have always been known to be.
As the story of The Wizard of Oz plays out the character Dorothy goes through significant change, she is a dynamic character.
