The documentary “To Educate a Girl” was very touching to watch. In various aspects, I can relate. As a young woman growing up, I use to wonder why my mom never went to college or why my cousins just stayed home and worked the farm.

The children who are born to “birth mothers” are given to their family and named at the December ceremonies. Because of the process of children being assigned to a family, the community has a result of none of the families are biologically related. Due to this a theme for The Giver is being biologically related is not the only contributing factor to being family. There are many examples of this theme throughout the text including when the family got Lily, when Jonas asks the Giver to be his grandparent and when Jonas in taking care of Gabriel on the journey to “Elsewhere”. One example of this theme is when Jonas in remembering how the family got his sister Lily.

She is a minor character; however, she played a role in the fight against gender inequality. Fariba was one of the first progressive woman to appear in the novel. For example, she married a teacher and truly admired him for his intelligence. Her mindset and outlook on education was advanced for the time setting because intelligence was not considered the ideal masculine trait of a man. When Rasheed was justifying why Mariam needs to wear a barqu, he described Fariba’s attires.
Hopefully, he would be able to catch up with his class age, because Amanda and Maggie, had insisted he spent time with the three Rs before bedtime each night.

My family and I went through a lot of horrid situations and still manage to smile and have our moments and beat our economic stress with the love we have as a family. My parents moved to the United States after they had my second brother; although both of my parents managed to finish high school, they were never able to achieve a high paying job casting my mom to become a housewife and my father to take a low income job as a car mechanic. I am the second youngest of five children, but there are 13 people currently living in our household. My grandfather has to be taken care
Abita’s father wasn 't in the picture, she didn’t even know whether he was dead or alive, she could see the pain that lingered in her mom 's chocolate brown eyes when her younger sisters would talk about him. Abita had 2 younger siblings and was often responsible for them while her mother was out. There was once a time where her mom was gone for 3 days working graveyard shifts and she had to hold the house down for her two younger siblings. All Abita wanted was for there to be equality where boys and girls of all races could attend school together, where all races could sit together on the bus, where all races could use the same bathrooms, where all races could eat together, where all races could be whole. She was tired of lookin in her younger sisters telling them why they had to eat in different places from white people, why they had to go to different schools from the other little white girls down the street.
