But, instead she comes off as humorous, she ranks just above Hilly as a clear stereotype towards the white people. In the movie, Minny has opinions on both whites and black, and it’s not until she’s involved with Skeeter’s book and gets to know Miss Celia that her conversations and thoughts become relevant. She’s the “sassy” maid, and Aibileen’s good friend. After she loses her job with Miss Walters (Hilly’s mother), Aibileen helps her land another one with Celia Foote, who are not welcomed and is rejected by the socialites like Hilly and Elizabeth. Minny is married to Leroy with five children: Leroy Junior, Benny, Felicia, Sugar, and Kindra.
HEDDA. Exactly the girl with the irritating hair that she was always showing off. An old flame of yours I’ve been told. (Act-I, 24) Hedda sees Mrs. Elvsted’s hair as foolish and threatening because it represents both her femininity and her power over Lovborg, the only man that Hedda may have had feelings for. When Hedda finally enters the play, her lack of femininity is emphasized: her eyes which looks like steel-grey; cold, clear and calm are the antithesis of a feminine or womanly woman, such as Mrs. Elvsted’s for instance, whose eyes are "light blue, large, round and slightly prominent, with a startled, questioning expression" and hair is "remarkably fair, almost silver-gilt, and exceptionally thick and wavy" (Act-I, 10).
The new name signifies the birth of a new identity, and to eradicate the connections of the past for future women. Offred’s thoughts relieves a glimmer of anguish by drawing connections of her liberal past to remember humanity and remain sane. Indeed, Atwood exemplifies humans taking for granted basic rights as latently important. Although conscious of the implications Offred passively accepts her new name. The naivety of the Handmaids makes Gilead dangerous, as their tyranny has no bounds.
The absurd is that which is not true, however, truth can be intermingled with the absurd. In his stories “Grand Stand-In” and “Worst-Case Scenario”, Kevin Wilson uses absurdity to show the raw truth of dissatisfaction and distressed loneliness in his characters’ lives. Through this, the characters define themselves and, as people naturally do, justify their own thoughts. In these specific cases, absurdism is the central cause for their isolation from their own mentality of their daily life. As referenced by Mark Doherty, absurdity is "the subjective truths that can be revealed only when we suspend our disbelief and imagine ourselves as someone completely different" (Doherty 57).
Fitzgerald creates a contrast between the two leading characters of this short story, Bernice and Marjorie. Cixous talks about these contrasting females in her article The Laugh of Medusa. She differentiates between the old and the new women and says that now is the time when this distinction between these two should be blurred. But Fitzgerald fails to blur this distinction, infact he accentuates this difference through the character of Bernice, pertaining to the old, and Marjorie, pertaining to the new woman. Bernice holds on to her old values, is shy and reserved.
Women are always underestimated, and belittled. If a woman wants to pay for the dinner let her pay as long as she is capable then it’s fine. Feminists believed that social movements are a good place to start when considering the intersection between the personal life and politics, not because it was the Women’s Liberation Movement that first suggested that the personal is political (Gemma Edwards). Women are oppressed by the false beauty standards imposed by men. The root of all the insecurities women feel is the beauty standards, and people have the guts to say on that one should be contented in her/his physical appearance when you set a standard and the one who doesn’t meet them are treated ugly and differently.
One of the largest moral dilemmas Robbins touches on is the juxtaposition between caring and willfully ignoring--or perhaps willfully accepting--the institutionalized misfortunes of others, such as the Guardians views of the clones in Never Let Me Go. The discussion of upward mobility and the welfare state is a thread that continues through the rest of the work, as Robbins is emphasizing Ishiguro’s critique on these concepts. He analyzes precisely what the welfare state means for the world in the novel, particularly in regard to the reward systems. “Rewards” such as deferrals, entry into the Gallery, and even the approval of superiors cannot exist in a society in which the clones do not have futures. The “no-fault philosophy”

The public façade is a polished surface of sheen, attractive and inviting. Yet with time, the circumstances shift, the mood darkens, the sullen pangs of deep-seeded antagonism lift its ugly head. You do not belong, or are not made to feel apart of this society…ah gaijin kirai …hate foreigners(!) constantly mumbled beneath their breath… “Though 'solipsism' has a specific philosophical meaning, the word is often used to mean "extreme egocentrism." The word may be used as a philosophical term, with the definition of “a theory holding that the self can know nothing but its own modifications and that the self is the only existent thing.” However, when the word is not being used by philosophers it typically means “extreme egocentrism.”
