Even though women were given more duties to do and helped with the duties of the men they were still ranked below the husband and above the children and servants (27). Men also abused their wives in New England with some responding to authorities that their wife was their servant and slave (31). New England and the Chesapeake had similarities such as the harsh conditions for the women involved in both of these areas, as well as their rank and how they were treated. Native American women were given more freedom than the women in English society. Wetamo was born into a time of peace and security, but things changed over the years (52).
They would often get fired from their jobs and be replaced by white people who did not have one. It was a harsh time where blacks and whites did not get along. Shirley however, was able to make the situation better with the help of some of the roles that she did. Much of Shirley’s fame was credited to her status of America’s adorable and unimpeachable child. She was all plump knees and dimples with blonde curly hair.
Even though Miss Skeeter’s mother always portrayed Miss Skeeter as odd and as slightly ugly, other people always seemed to gravitate to Miss Skeeter’s inner beauty like Constantine, Miss Hilly, and Steward. It is funny how society defines beauty, but individuals within a society do not fail to identify true beauty which is inner beauty. Miss Skeeter’s inner beauty definitely came from her long and close relationship with Constantine, Miss Skeeter’s childhood maid. However, Berber’s discussion began a consideration of; what would Miss Skeeter be like if any variable was different in Miss Skeeter’s life? Would Miss Skeeter be the same if her family was different, yet Constantine was the same?
Although Janie allows others to mistreat her at points throughout the novel, she is overall an excellent role model for young readers because she overcomes several stereotypes of African American females during this time period, and she makes many difficult decisions based solely on her own happiness. Janie allows men to treat her poorly several times throughout the novel. After Janie and her husband Joe Starks argue in the store about their age, Joe Starks, “struck Janie with all his might and drove her from the store” (80). By not retaliating immediately after being beaten, Janie is not portraying a powerful role model for young readers. After Sop-de-Bottom tells Tea Cake how he’s lucky that he gets to beat Janie, Tea Cake responds with, “Ah didn’t whup Janie ‘cause she
Like in Document E. Groups that are totally different have tension and it is usually for wealth and attention when it involves younger girls. Another point of evidence is that in document B most of the accusers were women, I am not trying to label anyone, but usually women can be somewhat ‘sensitive’ especially when it comes to men and wealth, they crave attention, maybe that is my opinion but it seems pretty relevant, with the evidence given. In conclusion the evidence given gives you an understanding that a cause in the witch trial hysteria was
Most of the time I know that he’s just gaming. My family does ok when it comes to finances but that means we get what we need and occasionally what we want. In the story, the girl complains of acne prone skin, ashy knees, and little cute clothes. I relate to this because I have those issues. Unlike the girl, I’m lucky that my mom and grandma are coupon queens and save on everything.
She didn 't like it and she stand up for him and they started to say that his sister has more talent in his family. It made him feel like he wasn 't on the team and his sister had one her brother friends try to help him stand up himself they talk it out. When the mean boys make fun of him at
Now Ellen’s views of others has changed, shown through her variation in racial views, as she becomes exposed to different types of people. Originally, while Ellen was still living in her own house with her absent father, she would often go visit her “colored” friend, Starletta. Although she would spend time with Starletta and her family and they treated her very well, she still viewed herself as better than them, because of her “superior” race. In fact, she sometimes pitied them, for example when she couldn 't understand how, “they do their business outside” (30). As Ellen changes who she lives with, such as when she stayed with her grandmother and later, her aunt, she met other “colored” people, like Mavis, that caused her to question if she was really better than them.
In the story “Ashputtle” Ashputtle was treated very poorly, as seen in this quote, “Comb our hair, brush our shoes, and fasten our buckles.” (Manheim,854). She was treated differently from her sisters because she was not as beautiful as they were. Also she was treated poorly due to her being from her father 's previous marriage, where his wife died and left her behind. In the story “Cupid and Psyche” Psyche was treated extremely well as seen in this quote, “Psyche was the loveliest maiden in the whole world.” (Benson,844) She was treated this way because of her looks. She was seen to be the most beautiful woman in the land, and this making her life very wonderful.
