“Her collars and cuffs were white organdy trimmed with lace and at her neckline she had pinned a purple spray of cloth violets containing a sachet. In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady” (A Good Man is Hard to Find, 471). In
Hair is something that many people value and try hard to make look good. Ponyboy values his hair because it’s who he is really, he’s a greaser and most greasers have that type of styled hair. Well in chapter 5 of the outsider, Ponyboy got his hair cut and bleached, and wasn’t too excited about it. Ponyboy thinks, “It was my pride. It was long and silky, just like Soda’s only and little redder” (71).
On August 3rd, Lizzie tried to purchase prussic acid, a poison, from a local drug store. When questioned about this attempt Lizzie said she needed it to clean a small cut. The police was once more unconvinced. To add to the growing evidence against Lizzie was the possibility that she had burned a dress that could have been the dress she wore while committing the murders (“Lizzie”). Alice Russell offered up this information during the trial and said it was a blue dress that Lizzie said had old paint on it.
Another fact is, Despite the validity of Lizzie’s claims about her saying she burned her blue dress because of old paint, she missed the mark when it comes to her not being around the maid, the only one who uses the paint because why else would there be paint on her dress right after the murderers? It’s blood! The event of Lizzie burning her dress took place exactly 3 days after the incident. People that are smart enough to know who Lizzie is, claimed she was not burning her old dress from old paint, but rather from blood (Linder, 2004). If you’re thinking, “Well, the maid could’ve done it on accident.”

I grew up an only child, without any older sisters to teach me how to apply make-up correctly or braid my hair for me. I learned everything by myself, using the auspicious approach of trial and error. After entering middle school, I quickly realized my archetypical goal was not exactly realistic. Although dismayed, I was not discouraged, nor were my interests in cosmetics altered.
The author uses a comparison and contrast between Madame Ratignolle and Edna Pontellier to show how these two ladies are different from one another. Chopin emphasizes how feminine Madame Ratignolle is to demonstrate how Edna seems to be an outcast from the Creole society. Chopin chooses to incorporate the appearance of the two ladies to support the fact that Edna feels like she does not fit in, especially when Leonce refers to Madame Ratignolle in some parts of the novel. How Conventionality is Being Challenged “She was blindly following whatever impulse moved her, as if she had placed herself in alien hands for direction, and freed her soul of responsibility.”
Jaine's hair can represent divergence and conformity to male dominated society, But also a symbol of her power and strenght and individuality. It can also represent her independence and boldness of the communities standards the hold to her. The people of the town find it improper that Janie decides to wear her hair down but her refusal to put her hair up clearly shows she has a rebellious spirit.

Based off of this reading piece “Trying Out One's New Sword by Mary Midgley” there was many possible arguments. The argument I picked was outsiders can judge. Midgley argues that not only is moral isolationism but that outsiders can judge foreign cultures, if on a provisional basis. Midgley argues that moral isolationism leads to a general ban on moral reasoning a disagreeable conclusion. She says that “judging one’s own culture requires the ability to judge other cultures". If we cannot judge other cultures, then we cannot judge our own. This would lead to an inability to judge anything of moral signiﬁcance whatsoever, which is extremely absurd. Moral judgement is a necessary part of existence, and therefore moral isolationism cannot be correct.
