... the next thing I knew, I was back in my room, possessed by a dreadful suspicion that he had caused her death.” (Harwood 117). The power and control over Rosina and her actions is portrayed by her father. When her father unemotionally tells her that her sister is dead, she cannot help but think that he killed her, and fears that the same may happen to her.
Secondly, Harriet wanted a social change because she had seen and went through the difficulty of it at such a young age. This caused her to notice how little freedom, if such, they had. Also, she knew that no one should have to go through such torture without any sort of protection. Moreover, they had limited supplies for the year and only had one day for themselves, which wasn’t fair considering the fact that they worked 6 days of the week all year. After all, some slaves had tried to escape, which she witnessed, but if “caught, would be whipped, and finally sold to the chain gang,” the text states.
What is intriguing, is the fact that she mentions a desire to kill her own mother two more times – first, in the chapel, when the mother could not sit still. Twyla describes this moment, saying: “all I could think of was that she really needed to be killed”, she repeats that a moment later, when it turns out that her mother did not bring anything for a lunch. Twyla reflects once again: “I could have killed her.” She is also not empathic to other 's suffering. Twyla is not concerned with the woman who is mute and works in the kitchen, Maggie, who is being humiliated by the older
Only shortly thereafter does a vengeful wave hit her. As she speaks with Agememnon, she speaks of the revenge she seeks- "Revenge is what I want- / I 'd slave my whole life for it" (722-723). For killing her son, and even further, for selfish reasons, revenge on Polymestor is the only option Hekabe sees fit.
In “Lamb to the Slaughter” a man comes home and tells his wife he is going to go get a divorce, consequently this makes the wife mad and she goes and gets a frozen lamb leg and beats her husband to death with it. This short story is related to Nietzsche’s idea of revenge because the wife was mad because she was going to be a single mother and so she got back at her husband for trying to get a divorce. Although the wife wasn’t suffering yet she was going to suffer soon, so she made her husband pay for what he was going to do. If Dahl read this Nietzsche’s quote he would agree that the quote is correct because in “Lamb to the Slaughter” it represents what the quote it saying. For example, in the story he has the wife take immediate action when the husband tells her his plan which shows that Dahl thinks that if you are going to make someone suffer you should have to pay for it.
Inherently, Madame will not stop because she is too shaken up by Marquis St Evremonde and how he ruined her childhood by murdering her family. In essence, she is seeking revenge through Lucie and her child since they are both French so they “belong to the aristocracy” so they “must pay” for the murders of her family members. This is Madame Defarge’s inner conflict since she is struggling to seek justice for what happened to her family members, but she is losing her sense of perspective in doing so by terrorizing innocent people (like Lucie and Darnay) in the process.

Because of Sethe's insufficient nurturing, Denver lives a "paralyzing infantilism" (Philip 139). She pays for her mother's bloody past which affects her psychological development.
To me this was a huge help because it was hard to be in a school that taught a language that I didn’t know. I was a fast learner and I adjusted well but without this teacher my transition would of been harder. While doing observation hours I was able to see kids that face the same struggles I once did and it’s not easy.

Throughout the ages women have faced varying degrees of sexism and during the progressive era this was a very prominent issue, women had finally had enough of being treated as second class compared to white males and simply males in general. They weren’t allowed to vote, own property if married, they were extremely restricted in what types of jobs they could get and often encouraged to just stay home, not to mention the large wage gap between white males and white females ensuring that on their own women would be hard pressed to survive. In many of the divorce cases the women were still required to take care of the children even though the male technically had custody. Sexism all though not as prominent today is still a very big issue, ranging
The problem is though, that workplaces are getting away with putting larger workloads on employees because they are willing to do work outside the workplace. My mom, for example works in an office and is overloaded with work. Sometimes she will work from nine in the morning until seven o’clock at night, and even so she has to work on things at home to be caught up, unless she wants to stress about it. She often complains about how much work she is required to do, and that she just wishes her boss would hire someone to help her out. This is a huge problem, because i can see it directly affecting my moms down time at home.
