Paquette is the only woman who seems to view her situation with any sort of bitterness. After she was kicked out of the baron’s castle she became a prostitute in order to make a living. She was “forced to continue this terrible profession that you men find so pleasant, while to us women it is but an abyss of misery.” (92).
