Nevertheless, many women were still afraid to speak their minds, even if they followed the fashion and social trends. 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
In her short essay, “Why I Want a Wife,” Brady uses pathos to connect and appeal to the reader’s emotions while explaining why she wants a wife. 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
Evana Baggett Sun God Freshman English 28 September 2016 In the short story Good Country People Hulga believes herself to be intellectually superior.

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
The author uses the handkerchief to symbolize how people and objects have constantly covered and concealed the true beauty that Janie has never been able to embrace. 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. “If your mother tells you to do a thing, it is wrong to reply that you won’t…” this sentence was in paragraph five.
In “I want to be Miss América” the main character discussed about her and her sisters never being pleased with how they appeared even after being different or unamerican had become a popular style. 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.
