Enda’s mindset is very much alike that of many women today. She’s does not see herself as, “one of Mr. Pontellier’s possessions to dispose of or not, [she] give herself as she chose (Chopin 36).” During the era in which this was written the statement quoted was very strange to hear from the mouth of a woman. The reason the reader can infer this is because of other characters in novel such as Adele and Mademoiselle Reiz. Along with the reactions these characters are given from a public stand point. The two friends of Enda each display a very different type of woman for the reader to evaluate, and compare Enda too.
As we know, when Janie had to marry Logan she gets her dreams of a beautiful and happy marriage crushed. All the dreams she had for a happily ever after was washed away with marrying him “She knew now that marriage did not make love. / Janie’s first dream was dead, so she became a woman.” And earlier we see that she felt he was “was desecrating the pear tree” but did not know how to tell her Nanny, so she just “hunched over and pouted at the floor”. So as tie goes on things go as expected and she meets someone named Jody Startks. And even though he did not meet the standard of her pear tree, he seemed like a better option than what was in her life at the moment.

“...She didn’t like dogs or cats or birds or flowers or nature or nice young men” (O’Connor 485), Hulga’s personality might be like this because of her wooden leg. She might have given up on herself because she is not able to do everything she will like. For example, a wooden leg is ugly, uncomfortable, and prevents you from doing certain things. Therefore, the leg is preventing Hulga from being who she really wants to be, that is why she pushes away everything that will make her happy and what define who she really is. The author does not directly mention this in the story, but by the way Hulga acts the reader can conclude that the wooden leg symbolizes her new

‘You can run away, but you cannot escape the fact that I am your mother…’” (Kincaid 95). Since Lucy believes that her mother is a victim of a patriarchal system, she wants to disassociate herself from her mother and the submissiveness she represents. She also feels betrayed by her mother because her mother encouraged Lucy’s brothers to become successful and independent, while failing to defend her gender and expecting Lucy to become a nurse - a subordinate position – instead of a doctor, implying that Lucy is meant to take instructions and submit to the patriarchal rule that is a feature of the neocolonial system. Since Lucy expects her mother to be loyal to her gender and empower her, it bothers her that her mother wants nothing more than a nursing job for her. She is also angry at her mother for marrying her father, and not pursuing a grander goal that would defy society’s
This event is pivotal to Vivie’s character; from then on, she loses the developing warmth she had for her mother, and completely blocks all romantic feelings from her life. Vivie’s “failure” would be if she were to succumb to these sentimental and romantic feelings and become a totally romantic individual. However, Vivie’s headstrong character will not allow her to lose all of her morals and practicalities, instead, a reasonable “failure” would be for her to realize and keep these sentimental feelings.
Although she has to keep this joy private, she tries her best to hide this contentment, Her resistance to her true feelings show how forbidden her emotions are and that society would never accept Louise’s true emotions.

Cléo is a young pop star, but she cannot even read music. In spite of her success in commercials as a star, she seems to have less power than the songwriters who do not acknowledge Cleo as an actual star. Moreover, she is also dissatisfied with her lack of power and shouts sadly about her will to become “just a puppet.” Throughout the film, Varda conveys the bad aspects of rising consumerism, which does not benefit everyone as well as letting the viewers notice of how Cléo is completely obsessed with herself, not much being aware of the lives of others. Mirrors in the film reflect Cléo love of beauty along with the wills of Cléo’s search for her identity in this modernized consumer society. In the begging of the film, mirrors in the shop confirm Cléo’s beauty, which most of her identity has been concentrated in.
Kate Chopin shows this dismissal bit by bit, yet the idea of parenthood is real subject all through the novel (Chopin & Knights, 2000). Edna is battling against the societal and characteristic structures of parenthood that drive her to be characterized by her title as wife of Leonce Pontellier and mother of Raoul and Etienne Pontellier, rather than being her own, self-characterized person. Through Chopin 's attention on two other female characters, Adele Ratignolle and Mademoiselle
Unfortunately, this stage to screen adaptation is lack luster, leaving much to be desired in the role of Mama Rose. Had the film producers selected a more talented Mama Rose, I believe this paper would have taken a different turn. Rosalind Russel’s portrayal of Mama Rose is awful. She does not capture the essence of a stage mother who is ruthless, driven, and selfless when it comes to her
So I married Curley (Steinbeck 88).” She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do. Also, she is not considered a “normal” wife; “normal” for that time meant she was supposed to stay inside and do chores and cook. Instead, she goes around, talks to the men working and hides from her husband. Curley’s wife is lonely because no one talks to her to prevent trouble. George said to Lennie, “well, you keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat trap if I’ve ever seen one (Steinbeck 32).” Undoubtedly, the two characters Lennie and Curley’s are very contrasting characters; nonetheless they both share the feeling of being different and alone.
