Women fought more than two hundred years in order to got the rights that were guaranteed to man in the constitution of the united states. Even if the revolution of the United States against the colonial Great Britain gave them more consideration among the society especially regarding the education of their children with the republican motherhood aspect, women were not equal to men and they were totally dependent of their husband for their entire life. Then, the civil war appeared in April 1861; during this war, which is considered as the bloodiest war of the American history, women were really involved and contributed a lot to help soldiers both of the confederated and of the union side. Some women engaged herself as nurse and gave care to the soldiers. Other tried to collect funds in order to provide food, uniforms and other things the soldiers needed.

Without her prowess, Mam may not have been able withstand the separation of her husband, or the cruel treatment of Grandda. Years later, when the shanty collapses due to Tin’s tunnels weakening the house’s foundation, Mam displays similar bravery. Contrastingly, Da projects erratic anger onto Harper by slapping her. Mam avers, “You’re a coward, your are, taking on like an infant…That house needs rebuilding, and you’re going to start doing it today” (104). Mam’s hasty acceptance of the wreck, rapidly followed with assertion and disapproval of Da’s cowardly behavior, reinforces her fortitude.
I think this personally because she is selfish and is willing the tear apart a family just for her own happiness. I also think she causes most of the trouble. She is a very miserable character, and she isn’t afraid to make everyone else around her suffer also. She sets Mrs. Proctor up, and stabbed herself with a needle to make it look like Elizabeth was casting spells on her to get her in trouble when she is questioned about being a witch. She does this because her and John Proctor committed adultery and Abigail is still in love with John but he doesn’t feel the same way about her.
The women’s suffrage movement began with unhappy women looking to protest and fight for what they believed in and ended with them succeeding. In the 19th and into the 20th-century women had specific duties. Wives were to clean the house, cook eat meal, and take care of the children. Few women were well-educated with their own property; unmarried of course. They wanted more opportunity and excitement.

When she was under the influence, she could be extremely aggressive and violent and then black out; at least according to Tom. After she would sober up, he would tell her all the horrible things she said and did while she was drunk, like the time she attacked him with a golf club. She feels ashamed and blames herself for not being a good enough wife for Tom, just as Melinda feels guilty as though the rape was her fault, even if it really wasn’t. It is later revealed that in reality, it was actually Tom who had done all those atrocious things. He would lie to Rachel, blaming her for all the things he had done, just to make her feel guilty, weak, and worthless.
1. The point I find to be the most crucial to the plot in Chapter 1 is the Buchanan’s blatant unhappiness. Tom is obviously unhappy in his married life because, not only is he restless in the sense that he moves frequently, but he also is having an open affair. Daisy is also obviously unhappy because of the way she so readily opened up to Nick, whom she did not know well despite their familial relation, and in the way she interacted with Tom. Even if I had not read this story before, I would have picked up on the fact that this singular point would be a catalyst to the rest of the plot.
He wants Maycomb to know the truth about the case, before Tom is sent to prison or to his death,“‘Link, that boy might go to the chair, but he’s not going till the truth’s told.’ Atticus’s voice was even. ‘And you know what the truth is,’”(Lee 147) . Atticus is saying that even though Tom might face a death sentence, that truth be told as it is. And Atticus knows that telling the truth, will help Tom’s side of the case in defense. Mr. Finch knew that at the beginning of the case that he had no chance at winning, but that wasn’t excuse for not trying to nor defend Tom.
