In the short story Thank You Ma’am by Langston Hughes, a boy named Roger tries to steal a purse belonging to Mrs. Jones off her arm. The boy was young and did not get turned in to the police. I will be discussing why Mrs. Jones took him home, how their actions determine their character and the theme of the story.

In the "balcony scene" of Shakespeare, Romeo discreetly listens to Juliet 's soliloquy. However, in Brooke 's version, she makes her declaration of love while alone. By introducing Romeo to the scene where he eavesdrops, the author departs from the normal sequence of courtship. Normally, a woman was asked to follow a pattern of behavior based on modesty and shyness, in order to make sure that her suitor was honest. The reason for deviating from the sequence mentioned, is because Shakespeare wanted to speed up the plot a bit.
However, because she modifies her statement with the suggestion that she will be “very nice” to him on his next visit, she may indicate that after overcoming her distrusts and her mental restrictions, she has decided to fill her desires in choosing of having an affair.

Several weeks ago, there was a national conversation about sexual harassment and assault with the #notokay moment. I spent some time reflecting on the experiences I 'd had in high school, college and as a young woman. My oldest daughter, who is in seventh grade, and I spoke about my experiences. I wanted her to know that she doesn 't need to accept being treated as prey and that she would be doing these boys a favor by informing a teacher or administrator if a boy touches her or makes lewd comments or otherwise harasses her. My thought was that some of these boys may have a man as a role model who is setting a poor example when it comes to respecting the dignity of others, and that early education/intervention could help the boys.
