Introduction “Although women today have greater options through education than their mothers and grandmothers ever dreamed of, the view persists that the real vocation of women is mother: It’s the natural thing” (Senior,). The writer opines that the statement put forward by Senior still holds merit today as we live in a society that favours pronatalism. Pronatalism refers to any attitudes or policies which encourage reproduction and exalt the role of parenthood (Peck). Pronatalism makes assertions about what provides a woman’s ultimate fulfilment in life, and what her destiny will be. The forces of pronatalism are significant to women as it is the philosophy responsible for the persistent idea that a woman’s destiny and ultimate fulfilment is entrenched in childbearing and motherhood.
A girly girl isn 't always a girl with a pink outfit, it can be any girl with a girly personality. Being part of a club or a sport is going against the stereotype of girly girls not being involved in extracurricular activities but many of girly girls invest their time volunteering in local organizations instead of wasting time by shopping. Being a 4.0 student is also against girly girl “morals”, a significant amount of these girls are straight A students that achieve for greater things in life. Being nice and polite to classmates is another rule breaker in girly girl stereotypes, numerous girly girls are genuinely nice to acquaintances but it takes a person to meet a girly girl in order to know how she really is. Wearing a the color pink or sparkling clothes does not mean you’re a girly girl.
Lysistrata breaks from the traditional role of a female in many ways. Even though the play expresses female power, Lysistrata is not a feminist play because the women are not fighting for women’s rights; they are fighting for attention. Lysistrata puts on a charade to cover her actual goal. She and the other women give up their desires for their families. They have come together as one to restore the peace.

Introduction “Although women today have greater options through education than their mothers and grandmothers ever dreamed of, the view persists that the real vocation of women is mother: It’s the natural thing” (Senior, 1991). The writer opines that the statement put forward by Senior still holds merit today as we live in a society that favours pronatalism. Pronatalism refers to any attitudes or policies which encourage reproduction and exalt the role of parenthood (Peck, 1972).

Still, however similar these two are, it doesn 't change the fact that they are more different than otherwise in background and in personality. It is obvious that Dhowli is the more determined of the two, willing to pull out all the stops and do everything in her ability to save herself and her family from starvation whereas Argon is on the passive side, never once considering getting a job or doing anything else other than rummaging for garbage to survive. Dhowli is also more stubborn and headstrong, as seen by the way she rejects Misrilal and refuses to accept her fate as a prostitute, it wasn 't ttill the very end where there was no other choice that she gave in. And even then, Dhowli persevered with her personality, the cruel twist of

Marjane (principle character): Marji (short for Marjane) is an in number young lady, who follows in her guardians ' strides. Despite the fact that Marji 's perspective of the world changes as she develops, from a little young lady to a full developed lady, her emotions on life continue as before and has dependably been a contender. She emphatically puts stock in battling for what you have faith in. Some of the time her activities appear to be insubordinate, and they cause her harm, yet this doesn 't transform her sentiments or desire. Mrs. Satrapi or Taji (Marji 's mom): Taji is an energetic lady, who is annoyed with the way things are going in Iran, including the disposal of individual opportunities, and savage assaults on honest individuals.
Smart, sweet, and shy, she hesitated to voice her ideas and opinions in fear of hearing that dreaded word, “Don’t be stupid, Sophia.” She became introverted, quiet. Talking to people became a struggle she fought to control. She turned into a woman she never thought she’d be. Seen but never heard. Appearance became everything.
Just don’t stand there and watch her drift, she’s worth so much more than that. She’s a keeper. When you read those quotes you think of her straight away and even though other girls come and go in your life she’s the one you think about the most. Yeah she’s a girl and she has her girl moments where you can’t be bothered with the boring conversations and being a gentleman all the time, but it will pay off when she gives you with what you really want; her complete time and attention to you and no other guy. The feeling when she tells you that she wants you right now so badly will make you want to run to be wherever she is.
