Women enjoyed relative freedom, to work, dress generally as they wanted, to drive and appear in public alone until only 1996. It is not their tradition or culture, but is alien to them, and it is extreme even for those cultures where fundamentalism is the rule.

Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father refused to let her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her.

She stayed within her house to keep herself in the old South. When she told the men to see colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.

(sparknotes) Although it didn’t happen until close to the end of her life and although she didn’t get much independence, Lucrezia gained independence and finished out her life on a good note all by herself. Lucrezia’s life was very interesting because her life was very different from other women. From place to place, husband to husband was very unique and many women would have wished for a life like that.

The political influences caused women rights to fluctuate between positive and negative

ES1: Khaled Hosseini (2015) writes in his magazine article about how the Taliban was forcing men into fighting by abusing their mothers how one mother makes a decision “so I left everything I had” (p. 61) she had lived with her sons her entire life but was forced to leave because she did not want to be the reason her sons had to fight. ES2: After a whole night of no sleep, Hassan and Farzana decide to uproot their comfortable life with their home and friends in a village where they are loved to come take care of Baba’s old house with Rahim Khan because he is getting to old to do it on his own “We’ll go with you.
