The tribe has a huge feast that lasts for days. First day is eating a lot of food and the second day is wrestling. They throw this feast because, “It was an occasion for giving thanks to Ani, the earth goddess and the source of all fertility” (23). In their religion, you must celebrate this holiday or the Earth Goddess will make your crops suffer during crop season. The Feast of the New Yam is not the only holiday that the Ibo people celebrate.
n the Puritan society, power is often given to people because of the land that one owns, one 's age, one 's race, one ’s religious beliefs, or one’s reputation in the community. In Act I of The Crucible by Arthur Miller, there is a clear sense of hierarchy in their community. There are few people who pull away and actually gain or lose power regardless of their standing. With the idea that the devil has come into this community, some see this as an opportunity to gain the power that they have been lacking for most of their lives. Even though in the Puritan society, men are much more dominant, Tituba and Abigail Williams are two women who hold great power due to their involvement in the alleged witchcraft.

Skredsvig further explains that Elisa has more to her masculin figure/personality than most people will acknowledge: “From the evidence of the house and garden, it appears that her energy level and competence are equally high, even though her potential is less than fully developed. Her conversation with the tinker, her constant observation of her husband's business dealings, and her desire to "prove herself" with the orchards all seem to indicate unexploited potential” (Skredsvig). This evidence suggests that there's more than meets the eye in Elisa’s life. In “Everyday Use” Walker’s character “Mama’ accepts the fact that she has masculine characteristics. “Everyday use” shows that while Mama describes her daydream, Walker explains Mamas true feelings about being masculine: “One winter I knocked a bull straight in the brain...had the meat hung up to chill before nightfall” (470).

introduction Women in the contemporary labor market an increasingly holding positions of power. With equal opportunities as any other man, it could be argued that the female gender is increasingly gaining more notoriety within the modern contemporary world. In some societies, the dominant belief is that women should be allowed to participate freely, and equally to males, in employment outside the home.

They are not held in high regards by their male counterparts. These men frequently use Ophelia and Gertrude for personal gain, making them the men’s most valuable tool.
