He remains placid even with knowledge that his wife has become more accomplished than him. Although he does beat her in chapter seventeen, Janie is blinded by the love she shares for Tea Cake and does not let the incident affect their love. Arguably, her silence may signify the strength she possesses after maturing. For Janie, the positive aspects of her relationship with Tea Cake can outnumber the negative

Except, no one seemed to care and thought that they were not ready. Allowing women to vote is a right because otherwise it would be considered oppression, women are just as capable as men to vote, and they will help improve the government. First of all, if women were not granted the right to vote, it would be considered oppression.
John Adams laughed at Abigail petition for women to have equability. John Adams meant by the “Despotism of the petticoat,” that the women have the power of their womanhood.

Emma Marriage For Jane Austen, marriage was a permanent affair that conferred financial and social security on a woman. This is due to the fact that women had limited rights such as earning one’s own property and wealth. The significance of matrimony is apparent through her female characters, Emma, Harriet and Miss Bates. Emma aspires to match-make Harriet by marrying her into a higher social position to Mr Elton – “she would detach her from her bad acquaintances, and
That is the main reason why Edward and Sandra got married. He thought she was a stunning girl and had to get to know her through all the challenges. As said in the book, “Sandra didn't intend to be as beautiful as she was. It wasn't her desire to be loved by so many men-one would do fine” (page 77). Even thought she could have been snobby about her looks, and no one would have blamed her if she was.
The scarlet letter ‘A’ did not stand for “adultery” anymore. It stood for “able.” “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.

This was a guy that she actually wanted to be with and spend time with. “While her first two husbands are domineering. Janie’s third husband is easy-going and reluctantly willing to accept Janie as an equal.”(Merriam Webster go.galegroup.com) This helps prove that Janie didn’t love her first two husbands, thought they were too controlling, and that Tea Cake treated Janie as an equal.Tea Cake also appreciated Janie for who she is “Not only does he appreciate Janie’s beauty, intelligence, and independence, but he also shows her tenderness, trust and respect.” (Dilbeck 102).

Isolation There are a few lonely characters in The Great Gatsby, the first being Jordan Baker who tells the narrator Nick Carraway that she prefers larger over smaller parties because she believes they are more intimate. The next being Nick Carraway who feels as if he just doesn't fit in with the rich crowd. Marriage The marriages that we see in The Great Gatsby are not full of your stereotypical thoughts of marriage like love or loyalty. The only marriages that are shown to us are filled with adultery and disatisfaction. Education In the time era of The Great Gatsby being educated was very important to be apart of the social elite.
Joan, though seemingly a bit more aggressive than Peggy at first, has to deal with her personal appearance, which immediately has most of the men pegging her as stupid, and getting stereotyped as just another pretty face. Joan also though (probably because she is more accustomed to it) seems to do a better job at dealing with her femininity than Peggy. She seems more self aware, even telling Peggy in the first episode that "if you make the right moves then you’ll live in the country-side and won’t have to work” (Episode 1). Peggy doesn’t get this though, because she isn’t aspiring to be a wife who stays at home and is looked after by a man. This comment though illustrates the ‘traditional’ roles being portrayed in the series, as women could only escape the female ridden “clerical” desk work by finding a man.
As humans, we value the beauty of fairness and strive to be fair. However, part of Adri’s robotic transformation is due to favoritism in her daughters. Since Cinder, is an orphan than she does not deserve any resources and benefits from Adri, she must earn these things herself. An example of this is when Adri buys dresses for her two daughters in order for them to capture the prince’s heart and not one for Cinder, “ I can’t afford a ... new dress that you’ll only wear once.You’ll have to find your own gown for the ball.”(74). This preference shows more than unfairness but also a bit of discrimination.
