Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20). Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by

Not Your Typical Woman Imagine going back to the years 1558-1603. During this time period, you would have to submit to males, you are considered the weaker sex. If you were lucky enough, you would be able to receive a limited education if your parents could afford it. If your parents could not afford an education, you focused on house chores. When it was time to get married, your parents would choose someone for you to marry, even if you didn’t actually love your future husband.
The author writes with cyclical elements to show that mothers and daughters may be more alike than they may seem The theme of Marriage and Divorce is cyclical because two of the daughters get divorced, and one has great deal of problems in her marriage. In The Joy Luck Club, the daughters start learning how to stand up for themselves to their partners. Rose Hsu Jordan finally tells her soon to be ex-husband that she wants their old house, and she is willing to fight for herself (Tan 196). Lena St. Clair tells her husband Harold that she isn’t happy with their marriage (Tan 164). The daughters don’t think their mothers have substantial advice to give them about their relationship issues, but they realize their mothers are wiser than they thought.
Ismene believes a woman shouldn’t fight authority, especially if death is the penalty. When she was first asked to participate in the plan she said, “What? You’d bury him when the law forbids the city?” (Antigone 61). She didn’t think about the fact that it’s her own brother that is laying above the ground deceased. The only thing she cared about was that the city forbids her to do anything outside of the law.
Both The 14 Points that Wilson gave, and The Treaty of Versailles gave very good points about what needs to done. They both hit that “M.A.I.N” issues that were the causes of WWl. But The Treaty of Versailles gave a lot more understanding and definition that what Germany can, cannot, and need to do to make up for the war. This is why the treaty is a little better than The 14 Points. The Treaty of Versailles really made sure that hit militarism hard.
Curley’s wife wished she could go to Hollywood and chase her dream of acting, the narrator wanted to was write. Curley’s wife had always regretted marrying Curley and was never satisfied with her role as a wife. Curley’s wife expressed this to Lennie, “I coulda made somethin’ of myself… maybe I will yet.” (Steinbeck, page 87) Similar to how the narrator was confined to her room, trapped by social expectations, unable to write or even fulfil her domestic role. The domestic sphere is a confinement towards both women, in the Yellow Wallpaper, the symbolism of the wallpaper and how it, “Becomes bars!” (Gilman) shows us how she felt physically and emotionally trapped by her role that she was unable to fufil. Whilst Curley’s wife expresses this through dialogue once again, “Think I don’t like to talk to somebody ever’ once in a while.
If you also look at the arguments against the options of restricting immigration, it talks about how refusing to let asylum seekers in “will fuel anti-American sentiment throughout the world”. But that doesn’t mean we should have open borders because that not only will make already residing Americans feel not secure, but it is an open door to anyone.
This would be especially important if some of the client 's difficulties were, at least in part, from her interpersonal relationship with her husband and his inability to meet her emotional needs since his medical diagnosis. If this were the case, it would benefit the client to identify and explore her attachment in her relationships, specifically the one with her husband. The first limitation (other than the first, above mentioned one) is the time necessary for successful psychodynamic therapy. Even ruling out the immediacy in the client 's need to relieve her acute symptoms, the long-term application of this type of therapy would might not yield enough relief in a reasonable amount of time (Scaturo, 2001). Although contemporary psychotherapy has altered its limitation relating to time constraints, the relief for the client may come sooner from other, or at least adjunct, therapies.
The story then takes a turn when she is informed that her husband was not dead, and instead of her being rejoiced of her husband 's return she regrets abandoning her moment of freedom and dies from a heart attack. “The Story of an Hour” takes a feminist approach, revealing women’s lack of identity and agency because of the patriarchal, male-dominated society of the 1800s. She highlights the oppressive nature of marriage as an institution and how only by escaping the confines of marriage, either through the death of their husband or their own death, can women find freedom and a sense of
Nye is trying to change the association of America and hegemony to primacy. This means that instead of viewing America as being able to control other states, we should view it as having had advantageous resources and influence. Nye’s argument is that it is important to view the U.S. as being preeminent globally, but not having been historically
With a topic as polarizing as the United States’ policies on immigration and open borders, a writer would need to make consistently strong and accurate points in order to convince people to side with them in the situation. This is especially true in the case of an argument that is pro-immigration as many people consider pro-immigration arguers to be biased liberals, much like how many consider anti-immigration arguers to be biased conservatives.With this being said, Eliane does a decent job of making a logical plan for the United States to follow and refuting her original point, she should have made a more effective and less frequent usage of quoting, as well as avoiding the ad hominem fallacy usage. Eliane’s most effective paragraph, argumentatively,
With Trump wanting to remove these services can cause difficulties within a woman’s health. “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion, I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion” (Donald Trump 1). Having an abortion is inhumane, but removing planned parenthood organizations because of a women’s decision of having an abortion shouldn’t be a concern for the government.
Marriage strengthens the family bond, especially when a child is being born into the family. Like the saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a child.” The point mentioned in the video was marriage without consent would only lead to undesirable consequences. If one has decided to settle down with the partner of choice, it is without a doubt that the family will have a say regarding the marriage. One must ensure to be competent in taking care of the partner of choice as the family entrusts the responsibility to the individual. The couple has to depend on one another to have a successful
Pro-life believe that it’s not fair because once that child finds out he/she will wonder why the mother didn’t want them, or the mother if she decides to keep the baby there’s chances that the child could be abused or neglected because of the circumstances under which the child was conceived. Pro-life still believe adoption is a better idea under those circumstances. Who knows what big things that child could do in the future and you’re taking away the chance for them to become
