By using imagery, symbolism, and diction, Piercy demonstrates the high standards placed on girls at a very young age. Imagery is very prominent in this poem. For example, the first stanza creates the image of a little girl playing with the usual toys, like the baby born dolls (the dolls that did pee-pee), mini GE stoves, and makeup.
