She began at the Vermeer house, afraid to speak; Griet’s desire for kinship with Johannes, however, pressured her into altering a still life and ultimately gave her courage. “‘There needs to be some disorder in the scene, to contrast with her tranquility,”’ Griet says, to which Vermeer replies, ‘“I had not thought I would learn something from a maid,”’ (pgs. 135 - 136) Griet 's decision to rearrange the composition of the piece shows how her confidence has improved; she was able to be assertive and make the change, as well as to defend her decision when confronted by Vermeer. Johannes shows humbleness in his response to Griet; admitting he learned from her and he has some degree of respect for her artistic judgment. However, in using the word “maid” he emphasizes how the hierarchy still stands even though she has managed to prove herself to him.

Kenya Down with PBS said, “Being uncomfortable with history is not means to change it; people need to figure out how to confront issues.” Down also mentioned how Lee’s book is one of the most banned books
After reading this chapter of her rape the question of should or shouldn't sexual assault scenes be told in novels, there is two sides to this argument. People who think it should, because having these scenes in book could give the reader a better understanding of what it felt like, and could even give victims the support they need to be speak out. Then there's a group that think it shouldn't, because that argument means nothing because rape victims who read these stories will only be offend by them and trigger their emotions they have not let out, and that having these sexual assaults only make the assault more and more socially acceptable. These arguments make it clear that sexual assault scenes should not be in books, because they are less effective when nobody
As she was a middle class mom, who was arrested and charged with her husband’s brother, she consciously did not mention her crime because this may divert the attention of readers and they may start focusing on other details that are rather unimportant. Another reason for not discussing her own circumstances may be that it may make the opinion of readers biased towards her. So whether she was innocent or not, but her purpose of writing was to focus on the lives of those women who are forgotten by society as well the policy makers. Erin George made a fair attempt to make higher officials think about improvements in correctional system for women and highlighted the areas which need many improvements and can be improved if higher authorities consider them
However, this term is not used as all because Shelley uses Victor’s lacking maternal qualities to exemplify the feminist point of view of the novel. The feminist view of the novel shows Shelley’s motivation for writing the book in the first place. She was challenged to write a book and so she used this book to idealize the qualities of woman and faults of man. The monster turned bad because Victor was lacking the motherly qualities that a woman would have and this is why his monster went bad. Shelley, wrote a classical gothic novel with a feminist twist, parental conflict, gender role idealism, and a riveting story, all of this is the reason Frankenstein has withstood the test of

In Kate Chopin’s novel The Awakening, she demonstrates how being restricted to one role because of their gender can, therefore, have major consequences just like how it did to Edna. Women were viewed as nothing more than a maid, when in reality they did so much and were not appreciated. They had to cook, clean, look after the children and much more when they could have been doing bigger and better things. Those who decided to not do what was required of them had to face major consequences such as their children being taken away or being shunned by their community. Women today are finding cures for diseases or running their own businesses, instead of being the one at home yet, they do not get the same praise men do.
As a female scholar in Pakistan she was under attack by the harsh policies of the Taliban who are a group of fundamentalists that do not agree with her receiving an education. Nonetheless, Malala adopts the view that women are equal to men and risks her safety in order to stand for this cause.
