The symbols of life In the past women were expected by society to stay home and do the house work,take care of the kids and stay devoted to their husbands but then someone comes along and completely goes against those standards. This is exactly what Kate Chopins is trying to explain in the book The Awakening because she didn't like the expectations/standards that were put on women and when she wrote a book about it everyone thought that it was scandalous to the point to where it was banned. It was banned because during those times people didn't really think or even knew about what would happen in some marriages like cheating, or standards that were put on women. Through the book The Awakening there are many symbols that take a big part in the book in which they all goes a bigger meaning in the story
“Night” by Bret Lott and “Worry” by Ron Wallace are two short stories that, even if they are different, they have similarities between them. Bret Lott shows up a father and his concerns about his child. Ron Wallace, in change, shows up the parents’ concerns about their daughter (and their house). At “Night” we can appreciate how the father worried about his kid just because he woke up and heard the child breathing. In “Worry” we can see the mother talking, arguing and even fighting for her daughter with her husband, he does not pay attention to what she is saying; his worries are all about his house.
Naden khaled Ms. Amanda 11C 22/2/2017 Women’s Education and Jobs in The Antebellum Era Although women in the antebellum era were far from seen as equal american citizens, many changes happened that affected the way that the community looks at women. From nothing to schools that helped them learn and help them get a bigger opportunity. Despite how great women are now, long ago they didn’t have the right to work or even to go to schools. Women were expected to sit at home take care of the kids and maybe take care of a farm if she had one. Before the civil war women had somewhat of an education.
A woman's choice can change our world. Specifically the power of one women can impact the lives of so many under aged young girls. In 2007, Oprah Winfrey changes the lives of thousands of girls in Africa when she started to build schools for them. Those young girls, who range from 12 to 18, have forever been changed because they now have access to education. Oprah didn’t always have many opportunities when she was a child.
This was all started when more and more books were being banned. As books left, media came. Aside from that, people called the people in their TV screens their family and relatives. Everyone gets too distracted from life because of media that they are sucked into thinking that the moving people in their screens are their family. In other words, they are spending so much time watching television that they are thinking their family in in their television screens.
While her reasons for courage are based on the time period this story takes place, there are still woman today who receive scrutiny for not having children or not wanting to get married.It is the ideal that has been passed on from generation to generation that a women must have a family in order to be perceived as successful, yet Mademoiselle Reisz "found it good to dream and to be alone and unmolested" (80). Mademoiselle Reisz's character represents woman who feel as though they are meant for much more than the title wife and mother.
Though most countries do allow voting, certain countries such as Russia, Cuba and North Korea have a predetermined ballot - they have voting at face value but the voting of the citizens tends to have no influence whatsoever in who leads their country. Women especially should be thankful for this opportunity considering a century ago, women petitioned, marched, were arrested, went on hunger strikes, boycotted censuses and even died because they believed in the fundamental importance of the right to vote; women of today owe it to them to not squander their sacrifices, but to make full use of the right that they fought so hard for. Citizens of the United States are exceptionally lucky and should be incredibly grateful that they have the freedom vote as well as to have influence over their country’s government considering that few countries do not have the same freedom of choice like American citizens
Offred is a handmaid, and as a handmaid her ‘job’ is to get pregnant by a commander, give birth, and move to another house and do the same thing. In this society this is seen as an important job because the regime that took over was a prolife, conservative group. Because handmaids have such an important job they have less freedom than the other women do. The handmaids can’t eat whatever they, they can do anything that will cause harm to their bodies or endanger their fertility. They also don’t freedom over their own body either.
With that argument, how come women can't breastfeed with her body to care for her children? How come women are okay to sell their bodies and sometimes become too extreme for the public to see, but one cannot breastfeed for the welfare of her baby she loves and cares for? I would like to point out that all men and women are important but this issue is certainly taking the rights of women and mothers who gave birth to us and raised us at least some time in our lives. We need to help them be recognized again until they are not hurt or discriminated just because they don't fit to what ignorant or desirous young or old, and immature people stop having to spit out what they think to the woman who may be going through some hardship after giving birth. It is likely that women get depression after pregnancy and birth, it is common.
I’m not worried about who I’m going to marry yet- if I ever get married” (Hansberry, 21). The use of “if” in her sentence points to the fact that marriage isn’t something that she wants to commit to, and that she aspires to be a woman that is independent from a man, and not tied to the household. Beneatha’s drastic difference in ideals represents the new face of America as more women, regardless of race and social class stood up for what they were passionate in, ignoring the stereotypes set out for them. The appearance of both characters in A Raisin In the Sun help to display the dissimilarity of thought between the two, and the difference in their lifestyles. Though living under the same roof, each individual presents their own goals and aspirations as to who they want to become, making the characters in the Younger family diverse, holding various viewpoints on what a successful life is.
