Marge Piercy’s “ Barbie Doll” establishes the character to be a young girl who hits the stage of puberty and is then subjected to people's hurtful words that destroy her body image. Before these words she seemed to be a normal little girl playing with all the right toys. The words spoken were with intent to help the girl change her physical appearance so she could be a better version of herself, but in the end the girl felt there was no other option. She could never make everyone happy. The last part of the poem shows how society's judgmental words can strip you of your innocence and leave you in a satin lined box six feet under.

In the Victorian age, children’s condition was a problem. treated as miniature adults, they were often required to work, were severely chastised, or were ignored. Exactly in that period Charles Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carrol wrote “Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland”, a novel that tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world. It is first of all a children’s book as it has a child protagonist; however it appeals to adult readers with its advanced logical reasoning, witty puns and trenchant satire of Victorian society. So we can consider it as a drastic reaction against the impassive didacticism of British upbringing.
Anne Frank Adolescence is perhaps one of the most challenging periods in an individual’s life; it is especially onerous for a young girl in the time of the holocaust. This is evidently shown in Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. We witness the development of the complex young woman Anne Frank, along with the same humane struggles and teenage hardships we all face at some point in our lives.

He claimed that every member should resemble the others. When Stargirl acquired why she needs to change herself to accomplish this, Leo cruely replies, “Because nobody likes you...That’s why.
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.

A YA Feminist Manifesto Okay, guys, can we talk about how awesomely feminist The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is?
