but she ran away. In her tradition it’s like disrespecting the families honor and her parents could have killed her. So it’s a loss and lose situation. Some teens are okay with the arranged marriages and some are not; that’s the biggest problem that is going on right now. Also I do believe that the U.S has a better way in relationships and marriages than some countries that are dealing with arranged
The harsh and imperative tone he adopts reveals his growth as an individual as he writes with the assumption of his newly gained insights that allow him to actively participate in the transformative nature of journey. Fassaie reinforces this as he states that “A marriage that can’t accommodate change is doomed to fail”, successfully embracing the inductive notions of change from his journey. His newly gained perception along his journey facilitates his capacity for individual growth, allowing him to adapt to and perceive the world with greater understanding. Macdonald also experiences dilemmas of negativity that challenge her during the early stages of her journey. However, the imposing elements of India’s culture similarly catalyses Macdonald’s journey as she gains new insights that prompt her to overlook the repugnant physicality of India and accept
Her works provide an incentive for women to take action in starting their own debates or joining a debate that can contribute to the quarrel. She also gave suitable advice to the women of the time about learning to live in that society despite all the misogyny because that’s how God intended it to be. Without Christine’s involvement, it’s very probable that women would have never had a way of joining the quarrel or t least would not have joined until after the Renaissance. The audacity that Christine had in speaking up about the Rose and challenging the work of such a revered piece of fiction, set her apart from any other female writer because she was willing to put her career and reputation on the line for the chance to participate in what would later became an important movement for women of the Middle Ages. Simply, without Christine there would be no querelle des femmes nor would the genre of misogynistic writing exasperate as it did in later
The title of the story also makes this story a good story. I think that storyteller refer to title, “the Harvest” because she want it to make it clear why she chose that title instead of different title. The title would other wise would not make any sense, if Hempel would not have been constantly using it. Hampel questions, “Aren’t we all, I thought, somebody’s havest”().

Jeanette 's parents mistake was that they didn’t think about their future and they did whatever they could to survive their hardships.

In Anne Moody’s memoir, she is faced with many obstacles and one of the major ones is her own mother, Toosweet. Toosweet resists the urge for the movement to continue because she projects her fear of change very clearly while Anne on the other hand is desperately aspiring change for blacks in the southern community. Toosweet sustains a hold on Anne encouraging her to live her life as everyone else and so she continues standing as a barrier between Anne and the movement. Yet, Anne finds all the more reason to continue her work as a member of the NAACP and Core. Anne not only wants to end segregation but to prove to her mother that she is capable of such an advance.
On the other hand, she wants to stay attached to her background. They are both two very apparent parts of her life, that both try to get her on their end of spectrum. Whenever Yolanda wants to go out and do regular American things, her parents forbid her from being in line with American ideals: “The problem boiled down to the fact that they wanted to become American and their father … would have none of it” (Alvarez 135). Mami and Papi are confusing her because they sent her and her sisters to America to iron out their accents, but they, mainly Yolanda, still want them to stick to Dominican ways. Her parents both hold Yolanda back, but also push her forward to make the American dream a reality.
Society’s model was not what the women wanted to make them happy or feel good about themselves. It was time to change it and they wanted something different than what society had in mind for them. Many women saw this rebellion as a reason the celebrate.

Next, I framed and presented my argument by explaining the controversy on core, clarifying the purpose of core, presenting objections to the core, and explaining possible frustration from being opposed. Through the development of my argument, I attempted to persuade the reader that the requirements exhibit a beneficial purpose, and a liberal arts education is an advantage in post-college life. To evoke credibility in the presentation of my argument, I effectively established ethos by sharing how my perspective has changed, and by using Calvin 's resources to support my position. Likewise, I acknowledged counter arguments to verify my consideration of both sides of the controversy with my audience.
