Susan Glaspell wrote this play for the women who felt confined, yearning for freedom. She is still pleasing audiences with this lovely play and always will. Strong and Brave women will continue to be powerful, just as Glaspell was.
Specifically, she states that all her interviewees who have gone through horrible time “maintain hope for a brighter morning — even during [their] darkest nights.” (near the end of the video) She conveys this sense of hope to inspire the audience and demonstrate that life is not something that is bad forever and that it can be changed for the better. Oprah, through her appeal to a wide audience and rhetorical techniques inspires the empowerment of women and an anticipation for a brighter future.
Edna started spending more time painting and working on her own masterpieces. She began to focus all of her time on her hobby, eventually trying to turn it into a job by selling her artwork for some extra money. Edna eventually began to contemplate moving out of her home into a nice little home so she could paint in peace and be lost in her own little world of art. She loved artwork and began to neglect other aspects of her life.
Scholars generally think that The Dancer could not be the one Klimt presented to her heartbroken parents, because of the uncontrollable eroticism. The figure of the second portrait is similar to Klimt’s most representations of Viennese femme fatale, who is mysterious and seductive. In addition, Klimt privately owned the amended and unfinished version of Ria at his studio. The final version of Ria Munk’s portrait, Portrait of Ria Munk III (Fig. 3), was left unfinished when Klimt died in 1918. The upper
“The point of these lectures was to increase public comprehension of the life of the perceptually impaired” (Williams, Donna Glee). Helen was not satisfied with what she had already done though. “She expanded her focus and interest on human limitations” (Williams, Donna Glee). When she soon got all of the people’s attention on this subject, she got on the subject of woman suffrage. Many of these subjects caught people’s attention and expanded their eyes as well.

Women of this time were offered the best for private training, but recognition was scarce. France was one of the last countries to provide women with state-sponsored education, which meant
The scarlet “A” on her bosom and the bonnet covering her ebony locks weighed on her as a physical representation of the heft of her sin. She lost her edge and began to give up. Hester was no longer enjoying life and blocking out judgements like she once was that day on the scaffold. Seven years is a long time to be publicly shamed for a sin you once committed. The gravity of the secrets she kept to herself was causing her to fade.
*change slide* The purpose of the poem is to challenge the views of motherhood. Gwen Harwood presents the idea that motherhood is anything but glamorous. She shows her audience that being a mother is more than complex and tiring, it is shown in the way she paints the woman as a person constantly making sacrifices for her children, which mentally exhausts her. Throughout the entire poem, she demonstrates the woman’s desire to have a better life and her want for freedom, to be free of responsibilities given to her.
Blanche always lies about what is really going on in her life to escape from painful circumstances. When Blanche arrived at Stella’s house, she explained she left her job because, “…[she] was exhausted by all [she] had been through [her]—nerves broke”(pg. 11). Blanche had made up this story to cover up the embarrassing circumstance of kissing a student and to shelter her from the humiliation. Also, Blanche plays emotional games with men to get the attention she needs to feel good. For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88).
And though it was due to the Salon that her career had taken off she became more and more disenchanted with the strict and unyielding guidelines as it prohibited her creativity, so in the years to follow she experimented with style and color no longer catering to what was favorable to the public eye. Also during this time, Cassatt formed a deep friendship with Edgar Degas, later going on to have eleven of her paintings hang with the Impressionists in 1879 to the love of both the public and critics, two more such exhibitions were held the following two years as well. It was after these three incredible successes that Cassatt had to leave her passions to care for her sick mother and sister for a time, her sister died in 1882 bringing great grief to the family but her mother was able to make a recovery and Cassatt was able to make a resurgence to her life as an
Georgia O’Keeffe: Female Artist Georgia O 'Keeffe 's parents and friends pushed her forward in her dream career, which was male dominant, by helping her through schooling and getting her artwork known. O’Keeffe was a female American artist in the 1920’s that succeeded far beyond the hopes of anyone around her.

Joshua Zeitz’s work is an homage to the women who have changed the world forever with their sense of style, lacking regard for morals and manners, and their desire for freedom. The main contributors to the flapper were F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Sayre. They first met each other
I killed her” (241) and when she torments herself with thinking that she is unlovable. Lily even describes that her words had “broke open her heart” (242). This shows how captive Lily is over her mother because, despite loving her life at the Boatwright’s house, she can still move past the death.
