That is all it takes. It is also important because it displays that Tituba only says this because it is what they want to hear, what they expect to hear. These beliefs are also apparent in the easy conviction of many good women during the witch trials. Take for example Rebecca Nurse, who at the beginning of the play has such a great reputation that people in the next town over have “heard of your [her] great charities” (37) but is later implicated in “the marvelous and supernatural murder of Goody Putnam’s babies” (71). This shows the underlying sexism because the town accepts Rebecca's inculpation, even though she was one of the most respected members of the community.
Even though Charlotte was not the most beautiful woman, she found abundant success in her talents. The Victorian era placed a woman’s value in how much money and beauty she possessed. In Charlotte Bronte’s coming of age novel, Jane Eyre, outward beauty deceives as it ironically represents a true evil in oneself. The beautiful Reed family, who resides at Gateshead, has cruel hearts as they boast about their luxuries as they deny them to their “outsider” blood. Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a
Chopin, an American feminist of the 20th century, takes a stand against feminism and uses this short story to call attention to this topic.

If the brain does not have anything to occupy itself then a man or woman will go into a state of depression. Being isolated from the outside world for so long caused her brain to start hallucinating. Also, the author of the book “The Yellow Wallpaper” Charlotte Perkins Gilman stated “ I wrote the yellow wallpaper with its embellishments and additions to carry out the ideal…and sent a copy to the physician who so nearly drove me mad...it has to my knowledge saved one woman from a similar fate-so terrifying her family that they let her out into normal activity and she recovered.” A woman who had had the rest cure along with the narrator and the author has either driven them insane or to the borderline of insanity. The effects of the rest cure on many women were devastating to their health and is a unreliable treatment to treating postpartum depression. Jane’s efforts to avoid others from looking at the hideous painting, shows how that

You can see the full extent of her suffering when she sobbed the truth to August “It was my fault she died. I killed her” (241) and when she torments herself with thinking that she is unlovable. Lily even describes that her words had “broke open her heart” (242). This shows how captive Lily is over her mother because, despite loving her life at the Boatwright’s house, she can still move past the death. Lily’s suffering increase after finding out that her mother had willingly left her behind with T-Ray and begins to question why?
The story of Henrietta Lacks life and legacy is one that I find heartbreaking but also bittersweet. Learning about her story over 60 years after her death makes me wonder if it were me, how I would feel about what happened. The way I perceive Henrietta was to be a good woman. She was a loyal wife to a man who she knew was unfaithful. She had five children when she fell ill and was devastated to learn her radium treatments left her unable to have more.

One quote that points to this is, “I must go and see Kemmerich’s mother… This quaking, sobbing woman who shakes me and cries out on me: ‘Why are you living then, when he is dead?’” (181).

Paul has to lie to Kemmerich’s mother or else she would have been even more upset than she had been when she heard the bad news. Paul is devastated when his friend died but stays brave because he knew with war comes death.
