Throughout the rest of the book, Sydney keeps a respectful distance from the family but also stops by to be a good family friend. Dickens states that Carton would “some half-dozen times a year, at most…would sit among them through the evening, as he had once done often. He never came there heated with wine.” (pg. 203) This illustrates that Carton is making good progress to redeeming himself and reaching his goal. Once a chronic drunk, Carton at least can refrain from drinking around the Darnay family, showing his increased respect and care for others.
She as pure as they can be, carrying herself as a respected christian women but not everyone is not what they say they are.

At a young age, citizens are aware of the scape goat in their community; they at first aren’t sure what to think about the situation, but most eventually conclude that it is more important to continue in their own prosperity and goodness. They choose to selfishly neglect the child so not to risk the entire communities’ luxurious lives by attempting to save the child. After coming to that decision, one will never be truly happy since the thought is still deep in their mind. This causes guilt to consume
Based upon descriptions in the book, is Wang Lung financially intelligent? Explain. Wang Lung is financially intelligent because when he was in the village instead of saving the money he bought from the house of Hwang. This piece of land has stayed with him from the longest time, and still. But, he is not so intelligent after all as when O-lan continuously told him to wait, he did not investigate what the reason for them staying was, instead he listened.
When Scout went to get together with her family they were ashamed about how unladylike she was growing up to be. During the get together, Francis, Jem 's and Scout’s cousin says, “If Uncle Atticus lets you run around like stray dogs, then that 's his own business, like Grandma says, so it ain 't your fault...but I am here to tell you it certainly doesn’t mortify the rest of the family-.” (83). This shows that people do not like the way that Atticus is raising Scout. The Finches are expected to live up to their name as being one of the richest people in Maycomb and because of this the people in Maycomb believe that Scout should be more ladylike. Unlike the people in Maycomb, Atticus does not believe this.
Milkman didn’t become less than what he was because he’s a man, but it’s not the same for women. Women have always been seen as inferior and the fact that men only see them as a way for pleasure, they’re seen as inferior. Milkman once respected his mother, and he saw her as much more, but then he fell into the way it “should be”. Women are weak; women aren’t capable of much. There’s no such thing as a strong independent woman.
Society is the reason why women have been treated differently and how women view themselves in the workplace. The companies have been influenced to not change the wage differences and society has allowed women to be treated this definite way. As it states in Family Policies, “Society has appeared to reinforce women’s tendency to compromise on convenient working in female-typed jobs and to deter them from attaining high-paying positions” (Mandel and Moshe 952). Society has tried to tell women which jobs they should try to obtain but society has never tried to lead the
Dee was shown to fluctuate between interest and disdain for her culture. When she does appreciate her culture, she only wants it for the wrong reasons. Dee wants the butter churner her uncle had made but only to use it for decoration purposes. She gets mad when she hears that Maggie was just going to use the blanket for “everyday use” and not appreciate it for its past. She even renames herself believing that she’ll be more in tune with her culture ignoring the fact that she was named after her aunt and her great grandmother.
Okonkwo often thinks that his favorite child Enzinma “should have been a boy” because she has “the right spirit’ and he worries about Nwoye because he cannot “make him into a man” and he would not win in “a wrestling match” (Achebe 66). The reason Okonkwo favor Enzinma over Nwoye is because she has more strength and she understands her father more both of which are things he would prefer in a boy. He dislikes Nwoye because he views him as weak and lazy which are traits that he would prefer in a girl. The gender distinction in Igbo impacts their society, occupations and behaviors. What causes gender division in Igbo culture is their polytheistic religious beliefs in Ani and Chukwu which depicts women as tender and men as belligerent.
The conflict in Confetti Girl seemed somewhat forced. It was difficult to support Confetti Girl’s protagonist because there was no notable problem, more of pointing out flaws of her father. “Dad helps, but sometimes he makes a big mess...I don’t complain when I notice he served ranch-style beans straight from the can instead of heating them up first...I’d rather have Vanessa’s crazy mom”(López 4, 5, 6). Izzy and her mother from Tortilla Sun, on the other hand, have a clear conflict. “‘You’re going to New Mexico and that’s final.’ I swallowed hard and tried not to cry.
