Throughout Chinese Cinderella, Adeline is abused by her parents and siblings. Frequently, she is verbally abused by her siblings by being called many rude names. “‘You don't know because you are stupid!’” (Mah 14). This quotes Big Sister calling Adeline stupid for something she didn't know the answer to. It is important because it gives evidence that Adeline is abused and treated unfairly at home, though most people outside the family do not sense that at all.

In society of the Regency period, every aspect of one’s life was greatly analyzed and examined. Any deviation from the set norm was considered uncivilized. In a time period where reputation was the most memorable part of a family's life, being considered uncivilized would entirely ruin their standing. Some may say that all of the characters were simply fighting to be a normal part of society; Mr. and Mrs. Bennet’s desires ended up with disagreeable results, each of the daughters deviated from society’s expectations, and Elizabeth did not allow any social norms to stand in her way of marriage for love. These examples exhibit the characters’ struggle to not be average and compliant members of society.
Mayella grew up with an abusive father, so she never learns how actions can have consequences. She doesn’t know how to see the harm in what she does, and in the book it said, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed,” (page 323).

Since a young age, the protagonist had been dependent on a family that considered her inferior to them. Therefore, as constant undeserved punishments were imposed on her, she describes, “had I been a sanguine, brilliant, careless, exacting, handsome, romping child - though equally dependent and friendless - Mrs. Reed would have endured my presence more complacently,” (11). Jane’s plain exterior was a significant factor that contributed to the emerging self-defensive wall between herself and those around her. The hatred which penetrated the protagonist’s soul brought forth a continuous battle for justice, independence, and righteousness. Had the protagonist conformed with society’s ideals, Mrs. Reed may not have rejected her niece in the abusive, cruel manner in which she did.
This open rejection provides insight into Fermina’s value of independence, a value so ingrained that she refuses the concept that higher power guide her actions, or of others.

Marquez metaphorically shows the way Fermina is unhappy in her house, but also the way she is controlled. As a result of male influence, her freedoms are being deprived and she is being forced into a domestic role she dislikes.
