Chilling worth. She commits adultery with Mr. Dimmesdale who is the minister of the Puritan community. She accepts her mistake and she is publicly shamed in front of all the community for committing the crime. People standing in front of the scaffold passes hateful comments to her because they think she has committed a serious crime and she just stands on the scaffold carrying her daughter which is the result of her adulterous behavior listening to the negative comments passed on her. Hester Prynne is also made to wear the Scarlet letter ‘A’ on her chest which reminds her and the people of the Puritan society about the sin she committed.
Imposing an immense amount of pain and guilt in Hester’s life in similar ways due to the fact that they are a constant reminder of the mistakes Hester has made. Similarly Pearl and Chillingworth both indirectly impact the amount of guilt Hester feels. For example Pearl makes life harder for Hester by giving attitude to the rest of the puritan children in the society. Also by constantly making Hester question whether or not Pearl was consumed by the devil because of the way she dismisses the beliefs of her community. Showing that even though Pearl wasn’t attacking Hester directly or questioning
One strong emotional reaction is when Aibileen always mentions something about her past like with her ex-husband, Clyde and her deceased son, Treelore. It’s sad when you keep on remembering your loved ones dying and leaving you. Another strong emotion I had was when every time the maids were discriminated against. It’s not fair that just because of your color that you have to be made fun of. My last strong reaction in the book in my opinion is when the maids get fired.
Her suicide attempts come into play at this point, and you realize how badly oppression and identity struggles can affect a person. Throughout Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi clearly links her identity struggles and oppression to her suicide attempts and ongoing depression. As Satrapi slowly starts to fall into this depression, many facets of her life are changed in horrific ways. Her relationship with her grandmother quickly goes down the drain, and her friends hated who she was becoming. Along with her friends, her therapist even begins to be a cause of her diminishing self-confidence.
The Salem Witch Trials have been going on for far too long, and they must come to an end soon. Every day I hear about people who are being imprisoned because of accusations of witchcraft. You are sentencing these people to die for their crimes, leaving behind their families and friends.This is a crime itself, and it is more of a crime than witchcraft. Many of the people you have imprisoned, have been imprisoned without any proof that they committed witchcraft, and this is unfair to the accused, and to their families. Have you ever thought that the girls are lying?
The other parishioners even those who were not abused, are tertiary victims, because they feel betrayed that their priests abused so many of their other fellow church members, and the archdiocese did nothing about it. One scene that illustrates the far-reaching impact of the abuse was after the article was published, Pfeiffer’s grandmother was visibly disheartened after reading the article. Another example is Mike Rezendes, who has his faith shaken after discovering the horrors that were allowed to carry on and the sheer magnitude of the problem in his investigation for the
“Slut shaming is the action or fact of stigmatizing a woman for engaging in behavior judged to be promiscuous or sexually provocative,” (English Oxford Living Dictionaries). Endless amounts of girls and women have been judged for this same reason. They have left schools and jobs; they have isolated themselves becoming depressed, and for some it has gotten to the point of suicide. If Abigail had not blamed witchcraft for the mysterious actions that went on in the woods, then her reputation and life would have been destroyed from rumors, accusations, and
Angela was feeling lots of emotions due to this being revealed. Her mother was not happy with her at all and she beat Angela. Angela’s brothers came to her and demanded to know the name of the man who took her honor away from her and ruined their family name. Angela was conflicted and revealed a name that almost anyone would be shocked to hear. Santiago Nassar.
To her, this was a major confusion and as the story uncovers, it was most likely the primary explanation behind her suffering in marriage. She most certainly disliked the way her husband treated her. Marriage resembled subjugation to her and when she gets the news that her husband was dead, she is upbeat that she is finally free. Mrs. Mallard can be said to speak to many marriages in society where many individuals are not enjoying the marriage but rather for differed reasons, they would prefer not to escape the marriage. The whole story is established on how Mrs. Mallard
She is apparently quiet after her boyfriend has told her he do not want children. She is actually shattered and she murders her children. It seems a little exaggerated, but it is a consequence of all the situations she has repressed during her life. As Cixous explains ‘’every woman has known the torment of getting up to speak: a double distress.’’(Cixous, p. 351) It is necessary that women must speak up their minds, the female’s character in Love, forever is a victim of a patriarchal society that defines women’s expected
