It’s all [she’s] left with” (Atwood 294). She is so desperate by this point because failing to stand up to her beliefs has left with no other option. She depended on her friend Moira to fix everything, but since Moira has stopped fighting, they are now both in less than ideal situations. By making her internal beliefs clear and then depicting her conforming to and participating in the society that she so strongly opposed, Atwood demonstrates Offred taking actions that contradict her beliefs because she is afraid to directly defy the society. Consequently, Atwood shows the negative impacts of not protesting when Offred is taken by the van.

The audience can also excuse some of the things she does that might be frowned upon by society, such as drugs, because she is going through that.
As the act of abortion conflicts with the social workers’ values, they may feel torn. And instead, they may wish to encourage the client to choose another alternative. Hence, in such cases, the practitioners faced the struggle between balancing their own value systems and their professional obligation as a social worker. The third ethical dilemma is when the social work practitioner overheard the conversation between the patient and her family members that the hospital staff has been verbally abusing the patient. However, the social work practitioner does not have any evidence to prove the abuse.
If parents are constantly fighting this means that one of them think that they're marriage is over. They may try counseling but it will most probably won't work because one of the thinking of one of the parents. Divorce needs to be thought as a process instead of as a single event that influences people's lives.

This occurs when a person who feels one way towards a person acts the opposite of how they are feeling. In Nora’s case, she subconsciously feels guilt for lying to Torvald so she works hard to be the perfect wife towards him. Her guilt does not affect her conscious until Torvald mentions hypocritical mothers. He states, “Nearly all young criminals have had mothers who lied.” [Ibsen 1136]. This guilt causes doubt in Nora’s mind as she begins to believe that she is no longer a perfect mother.

Besides the equality issue, there is another problem faced by many women: mental abuse at home. The husbands are not literally abuse their wife, but how they act have made their wives live in agony.

Once reunited, she struggles socially as a result of the lack of communication prior to getting murdered. Beloved had difficulty finding the correct words to express herself and instead used the words she did know to explain feelings she didn’t fully understand. She also seems to cling to the sense of oneness infants lose when looking in a mirror and identifying oneself as a separate being because she lacked a “mirror stage”. Consequently, Beloved lacks a sense of self and has to rely on Sethe’s memories that she gained access to as a ghost. Through a Lacanian psychoanalytic lens, Beloved tries to resolve the unresolved complications of her brief childhood created by the prolonged separation from her

It’s a sad, disappointing case that these women have to face, yes, they have committed a crime and yes, they are serving their time but when it comes to childbirth and being pregnant why are they being treated so indifferently? It doesn’t make any sense as to why the government has not done any investigating or to why this topic has not been brought up in legal matters. Some women have gone out and told their story but what good has that gotten them? Where has that taken them? What kind of justice have they gotten?
