As an example parvana had a very hard time to cut off her long silky hair. But parvana preserved and finally became a boy to help her family survive through the long and treacherous time of the control of the Taliban. The text states, “‘You’re not cutting my hair!’ Parvana hands flew up to her head.” As another example the text states, “Paran realized Mrs. Weera was right . they could hold her down and cut off her hair but for anymore they needed her cooperation. In the end, it was her decision.” This shows that Parvana is persevering through this action because she is does not want to become a boy and not even to mention cutting off her hair.
Go home and rest. "(p.3) This is a way for the midwife to maintain in control by sending the woman home, thus ending the meeting. The midwife also tells her that she "…read too much…" in a condescending way, meaning that her knowledge in literature does not have any impact nor effect perhaps because of her cultural status being lower than the midwifes’. The need for the midwife to tell the woman that "…pregnancy is not an ailment…" is humiliating as well as a way to diminish the pregnant woman’s suffering. In this encounter the midwife’s behaviour can be interpret as her being superior and the woman being beneath her, due to prejudice about where she is originally
Shout out to those who are having it hard right now, I promise it 's only temporary-“Unknown.” Just because you and whoever are going through rough patch does not mean its gonna be like that forever nor does it mean its gonna be something that 's gonna last long. Just like in the story “hanging fire” the author picks a girl that is going through a hard time but she tries her hardest to push through it and try her best to get over it all alone. I feel like it would be hard to have to go through something a lone but when you keep your head held high and always look at the bright side then it 's easy i guess. Shes has nobody what so ever and she has to go through it all by herself and i mean yea for some people that 's really nothing but the other kinda seems to telling us she 's not very old.
In the text, the girl does not discuss how she feels about the operation and avoids receiving any help to her situation This can be seen when the girl says "But I don't care about me. And I'll do it and then everything will be fine" (Hemingway 3). This verse shows readers how the man has pushed the girl in such a way, where she is forcing herself to go through the operation and hating herself for it. She could have avoided it all through communication with the man, instead she conceals her feelings and assumes everything will be "fine".This point is clear because the girl has concealed her emotions on the topic of abortion and it has led her to commit in something she obviously does not want to undergo and it has made her lose her sense of self worth. By saying she doesn't care for herself and assuring everything will be fine, it is obvious that the girl has a fear of abandonment.
Hester changed her attire to a plain, darkshade, with no designs, which corresponded to her emotions. There was nothing she could accomplish to reduce the pain of the guilt since the truth was known by everyone in her hometown. As time went on, Hester regained some purport in her town. The townspeople demanded Hester for her skills and soon she did not need to wear the scarlet letter anymore, but she thought she deserved it. Whether the sin was committed in secrecy or not, both Hester and Dimmesdale went through similar consequences.
And how Nea deals with this events. This story is written with the immature and unreliable 12-year old perspective. These two sisters have grown together all through their life’s, creating a strong bound, and the fact that her family and a “old guy” is taking away her sister is something she can’t stand. In the end Nea believes that she is saving Sourdi from Mr.Chhay and her mother. However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.
She risked so much not knowing if any of it would pay off. As she described living with the Jewish family, “Jews in hiding couldn’t be visible, so I stayed with them, it was the right thing to do.” (Burns 1). She had no strong ties to the Jewish faith and yet, of her own free will risked her life to help, for no other reason than that she knew that what was going on around her was wrong, and she wanted to do whatever she could to stop it. And how even after the war ended and she was free to go back to her normal life, she decided to continue working as a social worker to help those displaced in the war find their surviving family. People can learn from this that we need to stand up and show the same moral courage that Pritchard exhibited, and when faced with these types of injustices to take a risk to fight against them instead of hiding in fear, or simply brushing them to the side saying that there is nothing that they can do about
She was doing what she needed to and what she thought was right to protect her daughter. The message we can take away from this story is no place is safe from racism. Even the safest of places need to be entered with caution. We live in a world of hate. Sadly there is not much we can do to avoid it.
Jane Eyre obtains her goals at the end of the novel by using her faith in God, nature, and herself to overcome her obstacles; this faith and strength also keeps her family and the judging, oppressing nature of man from stopping her from obtaining what she wants in life. As previously stated, Jane Eyre, the main character in the novel, is forced to face many different challenges in her life. She is orphaned at a young age and is made to live with her aunt, Mrs. Reed, who despises Jane and is only keeping the young girl around because Mr. Reed made Mrs. Reed promise to raise Jane. Thus, Jane’s childhood is unloving and she is constantly bullied by her cousins, particularly John Reed. This abuse and neglect causes Jane to be someone who holds intense grudges for a long time and who does not love, nor is loved, by anyone.
Even with all the mocking and ridicule that was put on her, she still had the strength to push through it and carry on with her life. She raised her daughter, Pearl, through it all; she provided for money for them. She even gave to the poor. People began to realize that there was more to Hester Prynne than just the letter. They started to see who she really was; and because of that wanted the “A” to stand for something better.
(STEWE-2) Najmah is again unable to open up to Nusrat because of her trigger avoidance, “I try to smile at her, she is very kind, but I still do not want to be touched and I do not yet want to talk about my family” (Staples 206). Once again, her trigger avoidance acts as a tool for the author to explain that loss affects a person in a way that they will never be the same again. As Najmah does not wish to talk about her family, it shows that by avoiding any and all possible triggers she protects herself from pain. The suffering she experienced during and after the bombing explains her wish to never experience it ever again. But that in itself shows that their deaths control her actions and her feelings.
It’s how you save somebody’s life” (163). If Jolly did not learn CPR, her life as a mother could change if something did happen to her child and she did not know what to do. Jolly going to school has a huge impact on her identity because it gives her confidence that she can take care of her kids and her apartment. The school also made her believe that she can actually be good at something if you try hard enough. Jolly could not have got those grades without trying.
The women did not want it to die. They were going to fight for what they wanted. Susan B. Anthony was inspired to start helping women earn this right through many things. She first got the idea to help the women when she was campaigning to ban alcohol. Because she was a woman, no one from the conferences would let her speak, as women were not allowed to speak at the conferences.
If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.” Although she had great influence on her husband’s decisions, he would ultimately forget about the ladies. During the American Revolution colonists came to change the tyranny that they were once ruled under. Women would believe that they were fighting for their freedom. They were then brainwashed into thinking that their stereotypical life was not bad, but helping win the war by staying at home and keeping quiet.
