Edna says she wants to do her own thing without being fettered by her children or the society that is saying that you can’t get divorced. Edna also states that her children are bringing her down and damning her soul; Edna thought about her being free and realized that it is just another fantasy and the one person who actually gave her pleasure was Robert and he had left her for the sake of herself. Edna had been getting frustrated with the idea of her not being satisfied and her not receiving the love that she wanted and the realization of her not getting love or independence she didn’t give love back. She did love her kids but she never really wanted to be in this grouping of a mom or a housewife essentially.

She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this. She would prefer to just deal with her unhappy marriage by not confronting it because she doesn 't want to deal with the consequences.

Daisy accidentally runs over Myrtle Wilson, something ironic in and of itself because Myrtle having an affair with Daisy’s husband, in a fit of emotions that she can 't control, and then doesn 't have to deal with any of the repercussions because she is protected from the by the men in her life.

2 ￼Edna 's independence throughout the novel shows the view on how a feminist role is. Her husband controls everything "looking at his wife as one looks at a valuable piece of a personal property that suffered from damage" (3) and the major gap between their age indicates that Edna doesn 't have a lot in stock. Her children are her everything but she is not willing to give up herself for them. She keeps herself away from others. Her relationship with Robert truly shows how she is when she 's around him or not.

Like most Americans, Gatsby’s hope is accomplishing his lifelong dream, earning Daisy’s love. Fitzgerald showcases this expectation throughout the novel through the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock.

In the sixth and final stanza she decided enough was enough. “She decided to become a woman and though he still refuses to be a man she decided it was all right”, she basically gave up on trying to be perfect for the man in her life, she was already perfect and supportive and the man in her life didn’t see it.

We have to move from the negativity and spread our wings and fly.
