Ruth is really hard to like especially when we as reader see what's really going on with Dawn and what she's going through. Ruth always turns to Barbra thinking that one of these times something will change. I really think that that's a bad idea and she shouldn't do that. If i were Ruth and i kept getting nervous calls concerning a child i would try to do so much more than give the mother another chance. Dawn almost killed herself because of her mother not being there for her and loving her like normal parents would do for their children.
One way that Catherine changed was after her encounter with the old Jewish Lady. The old lady told her, “ ‘Little Bird, in the world to come, you will not be asked “Why were you not George?’ or ‘Why were you not Perkin’ but ‘Why were you not Catherine?’ ” (Cushman 17).

When Shaggy Beard’s messengers came, Catherine ran to her Aunt Ethelfritha’s house in fear and desperation. While she was there, the old Jewish woman’s words finally gained some meaning.

“Colors seemed different”, is just one detail that Alice explained after her awakening (Coakley, 2). She explains that the previous memories of her body do not line up with what she is seeing, and that she is therefore in discomfort. It is stated that ‘When she tried to speak, she bit her tongue, which was enormous in her mouth and tasted funny. When she finally learned to speak, the tone was different but the accent was the same’ (Coakley, 2).

Her body will tell her one thing, but her mind will tell her something completely different. Alice is struggling for other people to accept her, like her sister Jenny. The hospital is the worst place that Alice could be because she feels awkward and discontented.

However, right after she mentions little on difference feminism, she mentions a more equality feminism viewpoint.
