Alice Walker, a poet and activist once said that “a womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender.” Womanism is just another shade of feminism. It helps give awareness to the experience of black women and other women of color who have always been at the forefront of the feminist movement, but made invisible in historical texts and the media. Although feminism addresses and fights for gender equality, it rarely addressed equality and justice for black women in the civil rights movement. On the other hand, womanism not only fights for the gender equality but for justice against racial oppression against African American men and women. “Lemonade” is Beyonce 's call for the liberation of Black women.
Alice walker created the splash in the literary world because of his womanist concept in her epistolary novel The Color Purple in 1982. She won the Pulitzer Prize for her fiction in 1982. And she was the first black woman to won this prize. Many women writers during 1970’s and 80’s like Toni Morrison, Gloria Naylor, Toni Code Bambara, Walker, Joyce Carol Thomas, Audre Lordes and Paul Marshal talk about how black women’s lives were affected by sexism and racism. Their writings were like bulwarks against social taboos.
Alice Walker quotes and adapts Virginia Woolf’s writing to reframe it for black women. She inserts and changes words to reshape Woolf’s writing to reach black feminists and to tell the painful narrative of black women’s history. It is clear that Alice Walker has respect for Virginia Woolf, and while she does not tear Woolf down in her essay, she also does not sing Woolf’s praises. By using quotes from Woolf, Walker is able to contrast her own experiences, and those of other black women, with Woolf’s ideas about feminism. Virginia Woolf was British, white, and privileged; she had a prominent voice among peers and was held in high regard.
The 1983 remake, is similar to the original 1932 film because Tony goes down with bullets flying everywhere, killing approximately twelve to fourteen of the intruders until finally one creeps up from behind him and shoots him with a shotgun, putting him to sleep forever. In the 1932 original Scarface movie, Tony Comante tries to run from the police but is brought down by their machine gun fire. Also, in the original film a stray bullet that was meant for Tony by the police accidently kills his sister (Cesca). Both films end when Tony is at long last killed. Clearly both movies would end when Tony's life does on the grounds that the film is about him .
He lied stating that Tituba was conjuring spirts in the woods over the fire while the girls were running around naked. Reverend Parris told this lie to save his own reputation. Since he chose to lie instead of telling the truth, it allowed the girls to devise their own scheme of lies. Due to this lie, the girls are able to go around town and accuse innocent people of committing witchcraft which ultimately led to mass imprisonments and hangings. Other town members began to jump on the bandwagon of the hysteria surrounding witchcraft and began accusing innocent people of witchcraft for personal gains.
As Benjamin Franklin once so eloquently spoke, "either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."(). Perhaps the individual most personified by these words, Harriet Breecher Stowe believed from a young age that her actions and innate gift at writing could change the world. Of her most famous novel, Uncle Tom 's Cabin¸ her exposé on the brutality and immorality of slavery fed the currents of change that had already begun to rouse the country and American society.
