From the way she speaks, we can conclude that there is a hypocritical viewpoint present, and she doesn’t see the similarities between what she deems bad and what she does. However, we are concluding all these from Scott’s observations. There is no insight given in the novel when it comes to Miss Gates’ thoughts. The reason why I wanted to take a deeper look at Miss Gates, Scott’s teacher, is because there is either a deep seated denial about the false mindset she possesses, or a disconnection between what she thinks and what she speaks (which is a common thing people do to avoid controversy or to reinsure their authority). Like many hypocritical people, she likely thinks her thoughts are not at all contradicting, in fact supporting one another.
How I think Severn Suzuki used her ethos in the speech was mediocre.And her authority was not very effective to make the audience feel to trust her.To me she should have not have changed the subject frequently .But her personal connection was on spot.She made the audience have to feel like they care for the future of there family.
It’s all [she’s] left with” (Atwood 294). She is so desperate by this point because failing to stand up to her beliefs has left with no other option. She depended on her friend Moira to fix everything, but since Moira has stopped fighting, they are now both in less than ideal situations. By making her internal beliefs clear and then depicting her conforming to and participating in the society that she so strongly opposed, Atwood demonstrates Offred taking actions that contradict her beliefs because she is afraid to directly defy the society. Consequently, Atwood shows the negative impacts of not protesting when Offred is taken by the van.
In fact, her inability to teach at a University is probably the main cause of her anger because she never complains about her heart problems or her artificial leg, in fact she does not hesitate to prove to people that she can function as well as anyone else; as demonstrated when she climbed up the latter ahead of the Bible salesman. However she constantly speaks philosophical statements to her mother, which suggests that she has a bruised ego, because she is unable to teach despite the fact that she earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy. These are the reasons she expresses her annoyance by making unnecessarily loud noise with her wooden leg whenever she moves around and she directs random outbursts toward her mother for no specific
Instead, Beatrice had to deal with the confusion as she was clueless about what an inconclusive test meant, especially because her results were not how she expected it to be. She lost confidence in herself and wanted an answer for her true identity. At the choosing ceremony, Beatrice decides to join Dauntless in order to gain respect from others, but most importantly, for herself, which was an aspect that she did not have when she was in Abnegation. In Dauntless, she strove to gain respect from her instructors and friends despite being mocked by one of her competitors, Peter, played by Miles Teller. The importance of knowing one’s identity in this case is to avoid confusion, and to ensure that one has a positive self-esteem so that respect can be had for oneself.
Instead, Sylvia stays silent when asked, not wanting Miss Moore to know she has learned something. Sylvia will never admit it; she’s too stubborn. Not only does Sylvia not want to admit she learned a lesson, she doesn’t want her friends admitting it as well. As Sugar starts answering Miss Moore’s question, Sylvia “[stands] on her foot so she don’t continue” (Bambara 5). Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective.
We sit down often researching the careers so I can get a feel for what I will be doing. "Mom was it easy for you to choose a career?" I ask. I waited for a response but all she did was held her head down in silence. " Oh, that does not matter at the moment we are talking about you and your future" say´s mom I was so overwhelmed that choosing a career could be this hard I began to call colleges and asking nurses which school will be in there best interest.
Marriage and milk are two essential part of motherhood, which have been refused by Sula. First, she ignored marriage proposed by Nel. Second, she rejected milk when Ajax brought it to her. Thus, motherhood was not something really matters for Sula, but remains important for the locals. Therefore, Bottom people made that a pretext to demonize
Her anger caused her to not comply to the lessons that she was being taught. This is an example of mental state getting in the way of listening effectively. As Ms. Sullivan begins teaching Helen, progress is very slow because Helen cannot understand. This is because there is no shared meaning in the hand signals due to Helen have never been taught them before. Because the signals only have meaning to one person, communication is unable to happen.
Shahzada’s haplessness reflects the restrictions faced by women, where wealth and high standards of living do not necessarily afford women autonomy or decision-making power Shahzada not only remains ‘voiceless’ herself but also discourages her younger daughter from challenging her father’s decision, “No, stop Ruby! I have tried to persuade him but it is no use” (The Holy Woman, p.83). Shahzada’s subordination is so strongly internalised that she fails to see how her younger daughter could ‘reason’ with the man that she has failed to persuade. Ruby too remains silent as she is made aware that her voice would not be heard. One possible reason for the silence that women either choose or are forced into is discussed by Deborah Cameron (1990) who points out how social taboos and restrictions prevent women from speaking: Even where it seems that women could speak if they chose, the conditions imposed on their lives by society may make this a difficult or dangerous choice.
