Fitzgerald embodied this by creating female characters that were bored, superficial, and lost. Jordan Baker, Daisy’s best friend, is the female character that stands out in the novel as being bored (Fitzgerald 57). This is proven by the fact that she is invariably telling lies throughout the
Throughout her essay Brady used sarcasm and outlandish claims to incite a strong emotional reaction from her readers. I too was shocked by her requirements for a wife and the fact that women in that time period were expected to follow these requirements. Brady has done an excellent job of appealing to the readers using pathos while explaining how absurd the expectations of wives

A good example for doing the right thing is in line 75 -79 when a woman explains her husband made her daughter write an essay, it shows the parents let her choose the result and treated her as a child or young adult. Spying on your child is bad, but only if you do it right and correct kids cant complain. Like in line 66 a women says her husband made her daughter write a essay or other in line 77-78 Jennifer Alsip says she didn’t spy on her daughters but told them she would if they give her a reason to, that’s pretty fair as
Hurston’s metaphors help the reader to understand the great deal of oppression that the handkerchief symbolizes. The author’s metaphors such as “girl was gone”, “woman had taken her place”, and “the glory was there” emphasize that Janie is able to reveal her true beauty in overcoming her struggles. The author implies that by Janie uncovering her hair, she is revealing the constant shadow that has prevented her from her self-examination and in finding her true identity. The author’s metaphors are used to help the reader understand that the moment for an individual to overcome a struggle is profoundly beautiful and

Paragraph 1 - Good Curley's wife is masking her insecurities by wearing makeup, this shows us a more sensitive and girlish side to her character therefore the reader would feel more sympathetic for her. This makes the reader emphasize with her because this act of hers is relatable in modern day times, because of social media girls now see themselves as not good enough so they wear makeup to hide their true selves which is exactly what Curley's wife is doing . When we first meet her in the second chapter she is described as having "full rouged lips... Heavily made up." By wearing makeup she is trying to prove to herself that she is a fully grown woman.
When I was reading Mark Twain’s short story “Advice to Little Girls”, it was not what I was expecting. Seeing the title made me think of advice that helps little girls with daily tasks. In reality the story told little girls to obey everything her brother or mother told her to do. Paragraph four says, “If at any time you find it necessary to correct your brother, do not correct him with mud, or any account throw mud at him, because it will spoil his clothes.” Reading this line made me think of a little girl getting picked on and not defending herself because she was told to obey what others told her.
Their hope to try to become like an everyday American girl was soon to be shown that there is really no one way to be an American girl, but they did not learn that lesson until much later. Similar to how Chiyo-chan didn 't realize that being away from her small village and poor home wasn 't as great as she
Each of her poems are crafted around the normality of women and the tragic role that commodity plays within the history of women. The issue of objectification and rejection is addressed and carefully illustrated within her work. For example her poem entitled “Crow’s Sugar”speaks of the commodification of women through the issue of virtue and how it is seen in the eyes of men. Within her poem she states the following “The other boy said you wasn’t worth your salt if you wasn’t tasting me, I hid my virginity underneath my shirt” (Lines 20-21). Virginity and sex with a woman is not seen as a privilege it is seen as a right, to be taken and conquered rather than praised and appreciated.
In The Secret Life of Bees, Sue Monk Kidd indirectly characterizes Lily as ambitious in order to contrast with the traditional ‘Southern Belle’ image. The general opinion in Lily’s hometown is that girls should grow up to be either beauticians or school teachers, instead of pursuing challenging careers. Initially, Lily herself believes she is bound only for beauty college until one of her teachers realizes Lily’s potential and tells her that going to beauty college would be a waste for such intelligence. This comment from her teacher changes Lily’s whole perspective on her future and causes her to profess that, “I can’t tell you how much I’d hated that question [about careers], but suddenly I was going around volunteering to people, people
Jamestown and Plymouth, both early settlements of the United States, despite their similarities were very different colonies founded for different purposes. Jamestown was a business venture whose primary purpose was to find gold and a shortcut to Asia, and many of their colonists were not prepared to survive in such harsh conditions. In contrast, Plymouth was mostly Separatists who wanted to be free of persecution and wanted to devote their lives to God. Both faced terrible first winters, and lost many to disease, but as Jamestown had established a no work, no food policy, many starved to death. Plymouth had a handful of healthy men who cared for the sick, and worked day and night to feed the remaining 40 or so and meet their daily needs.
In Gerald Early’s essay “Life with Daughters: Watching the Miss America pageant,” Early talks about his experience of watching Miss America pageants with his family. The issue explored in his essay is the way black culture in society is affected by America’s standard of beauty and the difficulties black women experiences when trying to find one’s identity because of this. Early believes that America’s standard of beauty is white, the look that is most praised in the beauty pageants. He uses rhetorical strategies such as allusion, ethical persuasion, and emotional persuasion to emphasize that America's standard of beauty has an effect on black women.
In many instances, Pilar’s voice serves to question the clarity of the lens with which we see the world. Beginning as a child, Pilar seeks to discover a truth that goes beyond the superficial. She broaches the subject of image in the context of advertisements, saying, “I read somewhere that the woman who posed for it was three months pregnant at the time and that it was shaving cream, not whipped cream, she was suggestively dipping into her mouth” (197). Through the irony of this event, Garcia brings to light the fiction of image, and the way the realities we accept at face value, are often only shadows of what truly exists. The fiction of image, and of memory is something that Celia ponders as well.
Kamarck (2016) tackles directly the question as to how Presidents can utilize the massive bureaucracy they are tasks to lead. Unfortunately, in her view, the answer seems to be not very well. Kamarck contends that one recurring type of Presidential failure, “crash and burn spectaculars” can be attributed to Presidents’ inability to effectively manage the vast resources of the executive branch. Pointing to failures by Presidents Carter, Bush Jr., and Obama, Kamarck identifies three common reasons for these Presidential failures: failure of information to get to the President in order to prompt effective decision making, failure of Presidents to see early warning signs of disasters, and failure to understand the capacity of the government
