Because “drowned” and “suffocated” are words with extremely strong connotation, they aid Clinton in clearly embellishing her aspirations of common folk grasping the horror of what happens to women on the planet. The vision of broken spines serve as thoroughly detailed visuals to support the horror. By this time in Clinton’s argument, she already educated spectators of misdeeds, what was ethical and moral versus unethical and immoral, and put the life of women into perspective; however she did not truly address the benefits of supporting females until later

The voice of marginalized women belonging to the so-called inferior race rings persuasively in the novel, A Mercy. Lisa M. Logan is attentive to this aspect of the novel. She is keenly interested in examining this aspect of the novel. Logan's view is cited in the following extract: Morrison’s novel operates as an evocative object, bridging the historical facts of patriarchy with the emotional resonance of non-elite, marginalized women’s experiences. The stories of Florens, Lina, and Rebekka show that early America was especially dangerous, tenuous, and brutal for women and girls.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller is a play about what happened during the Salem Witch Trials. It gives insight about what people had to deal with in this situation and how they handled it. The trials were basically a big test which helped figuring out whether or not people were guilty of witchcraft. This is an example of what a crucible is. In our world today we still have crucibles and even though they are different than back then, they all relate to each other because of what influence they have on people.
Filled with the anxieties of a young girl and her town, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ has a diverse cast of characters, including one Mayella Ewell. Although not the main character, she plays a pivotal role as the victim in the Tom Robinson case. In Lee’s story, direct characterization from Scout, figurative language on the stand, and other details throughout the story help readers sympathize with Mayella Ewell, as they paint a picture of her homelife and the societal obstacle course set before her. In the Court scene, there are many instances where the officials’ interactions with Mayella, and her reactions to them, can make the reader feel sympathetic towards her. One such instance, reoccuring several times throughout the scene, is when Atticus calls her ‘Miss’ Mayella Ewell to which she responds with hurt and anger, saying “Won’t answer a word you say long as you keep on mockin‘ me.” Lee also uses Jem, who (in his wise old age) is proficient at reading people, to help set the tone for Mayella being honest and victimized by all those around her.

P. 149). While the handiwork of one promotes violence and destruction, the other toils only to secure peace and domestic harmony. Lucie assumes the existence of a fellow-feeling between herself and Madame Defarge, based on their common gender. She automatically expects Madame Defarge to identify with her joy as a woman. The realisation of her mistake strikes her with 'terror ' and leads to the admission "We are more afraid of you than of these others" which Madame calmly receives as a compliment.
Morrison has vividly justified the white ideological oppression and how Pecola internalizes and manipulates it. The novel has the vigor of relating the incidents precisely to draw analogy between the ambivalent aspects of black temperament. Pecola gets ignored by the white folk which is quite fathomable, but the anger and dislike shown to her by her mother (and a sweet attitude towards the white child) is puzzling and problematic. Morrison through a post-modernistic stance problematizes the concept of black identity through the ambivalent attitude of Breedlove family. Mrs. Breedlove finds a reflection of her own in Pecola which is “ugly” not only for others but for her also.
