In 1899, Eleanor Roosevelt, fifteen, was sent to a private finishing school, Allenswood Academy in England. The headmistress of the school, Marie Souvestre, was a feminist with critical, challenging and unusual for those times ideas, greatly impacting Eleanor Roosevelt.

I do like how Wade always has her back, “I could get on the phone and threaten to fly back there and kick his ass” (150) there is something beautiful about their dysfunctional relationship.

Some things I was god at, like math or painting or even sports, but the second a boy put his arm around me, I forgot wanting to do anything else, which felt like a relief at first until it became like sinking into muck. ”(Minot, 295) This is such a powerful, and eye opening statement due to the fact that she loves the feeling of being in the moment, and knowing that it was a relief that she was appreciated for something that she could be “good” at. On the contrary, she then takes the audience aback when she compares her passion of sex, to sinking into muck.
Evidence to these accusations against his character is scarce, save for his forward nature in letters to his supposed one night stand. There are many letters that show his indulgent and immoderately charming nature and one should observe his forward behavior in conjunction with his high regard for women and their education. He often made a case for women’s deserved right to education and even made comments in his provocative letter his young friend seeking a mistress.

In the fifth letter between Abelard and Heloise, Heloise addresses the issue of the many people who "blindly rush into religious vows. " Heloise fell into the group of women who are discarded by their husbands and families for financial or personal reasons.
