Janie’s grandmother, Nanny, forces Janie to marry a man she is not in love with out of convenience. Nanny does not want Janie to suffer the necessities of life, but Janie cares little about materials and seeks love. Nanny’s ideology haunts Janie for much of her life, influencing decisions she takes later in marriage. Huston says, “The memory of Nanny was still powerful and strong,” which shows how Janie conforms to the ideology her grandmother instilled in her. And although Janie conforms, she continues to question inwardly about love.
Furthermore, nowadays it is normal for teenage daughters and mothers not to get along. The demons have convinced teenage girls that it is typical to not agree with their mothers. This belief is absurd because it is critical for girls to have a role model. Without an involved mother, girls do not have role model for faith, self esteem, and body image.
In the other story, “The Use of Force,” the young girl, Mathilda, is disobedient for another reason. Mathilda is most likely scared to find out if she could die or not, and that is why she refuses to open her mouth for the doctor. Mathilda is clearly not scared of the doctor but is scared of finding out if she is sick. The reader sees this in the text, “Not a move. Even her expression hadn’t changed.
What if you only had one opportunity to a better life but you are too scared to face your dreams head on due to the fact it may not turn out the way you thought? Dreams do change as the journey goes on and that is okay. So, which is more important, realizing your dream is unrealistic and giving up or realizing your dream is different and knowing it is what is best for you in that moment? In Pam Munoz Ryan’s text, Esperanza Rising (2010), we learn about a girl named Esperanza, a wealthy girl without a trouble in the world and is largely ignorant to the problems of people around her but things take a sudden turn and the hopeful journey begins. Esperanza faces many challenges that lead to her finding hope and inspiration, which are represented through symbolism.
Tess- a victim of church/religion Tess is a victim of religion as according to society norms. Probably the most obvious and the most discussed mistakes Tess makes in her life, are her “sins against society”. The first is quite obvious, she gives birth to an illegitimate child and is resolved to keep living her life and raise her child as well as she can in spite of the society’s contempt: “The baby’s offence against society in coming into the world was forgotten by the girl-mother; her soul’s desire was to continue that offence by preserving the life of the child”. (112) The second one is not so apparent and in the eyes of the author just formal or perhaps unnatural
Ammu begins to look for ways to regain control over her own life, such as her relationship with Velutha. However, because of the events that transpire from the relationship, she begins to resent her children even more, once even shouting at them that “If it wasn 't for you I wouldn 't be here! I would have been free!" (240). This event showcases that when Ammu begins to focus on her own wish to be free of society’s constrictions, she no longer can prioritize the needs of her children, and in fact begins to view them as a
The style of argumentation is very closed and both mother and daughter are not very open to other suggestions and kind of stubborn. Later in the text, Rachel tells the reader about other mothers and their bad relationship between mother and daughter. In the start, the reader really gets the imagine that she really struggles because of the teenagers, also because of her title choice "a modern tragedy", which indicates the problem among two sides and that the author wants to
Mills states that “After marriage, the man had anciently (but this was anterior to Christianity) the power of life and death overhis wife. She could invoke no law against him; he was her sole tribunal and law.” (1870). Women’s rights at the time were dismal, and as soon as she married a man, she had to completely surrender to his will. A woman would have to completely follow what she wanted of him, not anyone else. No wife could levy charges against her husband, unless there was truly grave abuse going on, according to Mills (1870).
A baby shouldn't come into the world unwanted. Many people still argue that adoption is a second choice, but most women don't want to carry the baby for full term because it is more difficult for them while a abortion is easier. Refusing a woman their right is lowering our status down to inferior and that is taking away our rights of equality. Woman should not have to carry around children without a choice. Men would never understand the pain and insecurity of a woman, even in these times.
Such as Feeling bad is a normal part of becoming a new mother. This statement is inaccurate because many new mothers may feel like they are not good enough, but they will usually realize it is all part of the learning process. Another myth is if they tell anyone how they are feeling they will take their child away. In most cases this is not true, children will only be taken away if there are very serious issues going on, and postpartum is for the most part very mild. Another myth that many mothers with PPD believe is that there are no treatments out there, and that there is no reason for them to even get treatment.
