Anne Frank was a hopeful, optimistic teenager who sadly didn’t survive the Holocaust.

Kate Chopin, an American feminist of the 20th century, takes a stand against feminism and uses her short story “The Story of an Hour” to call attention to the fact that women were oppressed in their marriages in the late 1800’s.
