She introduces her essay with an analyzation of the “ethical and intellectual contract between teacher and student”, insisting it is essential for women to claim their own lives and an education for themselves (297).

Throughout the essay, Rich repeatedly reminds readers to claim an education, and to take what they deserve instead of accepting a stereotypical housewife role, where their husband is the only one who is well educated. Rich refers to education as an “essential experience” in taking responsibility towards yourself (298).
