McCormick writes to young western girls because they are the next generation women that both care and can make a difference. This generation can find unity in each other by recognizing our different but similar adversities, and helping one another reach a better world. Unlike some women in the past, we can use each other to build on our accomplishments cumulatively instead of tearing others down to benefit personally. In such a patriarchal world, women definitely need to work harder to attain their goals; although, to climb the ladder of power, some ladies step on their fellow female peers on the way up, and justify this by the male’s dominant role in
Hulga fits all of those categories in a way, she had a limp because she did not have a leg, she was not physically ugly, but the way she thought of herself was, and she was undesirable because she did not take care of herself properly. “One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy…” (O 'Connor 484), this could mean that with name decision Hulga had made her mother could not turn it into something positive, because once something is dust you can not turn it back into its original form. Hulga’s name change symbolized that she was not the same girl she once was or she would be. In addition, the author inserts Vulcans name to compare him to Hulga’s

Tituba was only worried about saving herself, if she would have told the truth their lives would have been spared. Some may say that Abigail could not have stopped the mass hysteria because it had already gotten out of hand. They may also claim that she was only a child and no one would have listened, but the children had a lot of power over the adults. They were listening to her lies so they would have listened to the truth as well. If she would have told the truth, then the other girls would not have felt obligated to play along with the lies.
The reason being that Gertrudis is a strong woman who goes against all the imposed traditions and views women face.

While reading Eleanor & Park from beginning to end, I find myself not liking the book as much as I had hoped. There were some problematic instances of negative stereotyping. Park 's mother, Mindy, is a perfect example of how she is portrayed in such a way some people will find offensive. The family dynamics from both of the main characters ' families are not good at all, if not very dangerous to readers who have already survived from any sort of abuse. My biggest problem here is the romance.
She had to grow up as a young lady, and live up to the expectations of women of all ages. In her story, the expectations of females in the South reflected on many people and characters. Young Scout was not willing to be more ladylike, but her Aunt Alexandra wanted to raise her properly like her mother would have. “Ladies in bunches always filled...[Scout] with vague apprehension and a firm desire to be elsewhere, but this feeling was what Aunt Alexandra called being “spoiled”” (Lee 229). Women were expected to wear dresses and sit up straight while sitting.
Typically in great novels there are characters that can be perceived as either good or bad, which is not how people in the world are perceived because there are many different layers to a person’s character. One example of a character that showcases this is Mrs. Morrow who Holden meets on the train. Mrs. Morrow appears to be a nice mother who “[has] a lot of charm”, but upon closer analysis it can be said that Mrs. Morrow might be living a life very different from the one she wants everyone to assume she has(56). This can be concluded because she is alone at night, with a broken nail, and as a mother it can be assumed that if a child has a bleeding nose it would be one of the first things you notice, however, Mrs. Morrow does not notice Holden’s bleeding nose until about halfway through their conversation. Holden’s interaction with a character that seems to have two different sides to them is another instance in which a scenario takes place that accurately represents American
This is not true because Conrad is raising some gender biases by portraying women as an inferior character and minor character. He rarely mentions any woman character in his novel, however the role given to them is insignificant. For example, in this novel Marlow’s aunt is referred to as a caricature. Especially when Marlow says, “They live in the world of their own, and there had never been anything like it, and never can be” (Conrad, 2015, p.22).It shows us Conrad’s strong believe in women’s inferiority. The words such as “world of their own”, is more like women’s lack of contribution towards practical world and women lost in their fantasy.
