I saw you. It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223) This differs greatly from Jane, who begins to sympathize with the plight of all domestic women through her experience with the woman behind the yellow wallpaper. Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.

Nancy Mairs forces a sharp-witted and blunt tone on the reader in her essay, “On Being A Cripple.” A new perspective is explored, on being disabled as well as the word “crippled” which is found offensive by most of society. While keeping the piece light and relatable, she shines a light on the guilty pity thrown on the disabled, treatment no one asks for.

She immediately extinguishes that reaction by using humor to lighten the mood, showing the reader that being crippled does not have to be such a depressing subject.

After they dragged the body into the house, Caril is sitting in a chair, shocked. When Charlie tells Caril to take a shower, she states that “I’m not taking a shower with a dead man on the floor!”. This line, along with the blank portrayal of Caril’s being, is not accurate to how the real Caril was as a person. Because according to the published book, “the Twelfth Victim”, about Caril’s innocence, she is described as a clever, witted and strong young girl. This historical depiction of her doesn’t match with the movie.
Parris’ house and without a word she falls to the floor. He goes to save her a finds a needle two inches in the flesh of her body” (Miller 78-79). Abigail being one of the youngest characters in the book, she’s a little immature. For example, she mocked Mary Warren in the courthouse as if her spirit were sent out on Abigail on the girls and where harming them.

The Beneath the Armor of an Athlete by Lisa Whitsett, is about a book that shares her great experience as she stepped into the wrestling career. While the story, there are few elements that I found parallel which I had previously learned from last class. Self-talk is the repetitive example that had been brought in her story while becoming a wrestler. Toward the beginning of the novel, Whitsett explains are experience inside the sauna that changed her. During her time inside the, sauna almost every player had given up because of the atrocious heatwave yet she didn’t quit because she talked herself into enduring the pain.
She entered this program from jail as a way to keep her unborn child. More programs such as this is desperately needed in order for these women to form a foundation to build upon to one day understand themselves that they too are somebody and can be whatever they work hard for. In the film Healing Neen, trauma is the main theme that has affected so many in the system. Many women reveal the feelings of hopelessness and being powerless. They feel as though they are worth nothing and they do not know how to make good decisions for themselves because the drugs are considered an effective numbing treatment.
She loses herself, as I would imagine Sophie to do after a life time of oppression. Jane saw a woman in the wall, and then became her. She took on that identity, and in her mind, then became free of ruling and imprisonment. All of my sympathy for any of the other characters in this work went solely to Jane. Her obvious mental instability made the story difficult for me to read- not because it’s what’s wrong with her, but what’s wrong with professional medical abuse, which especially back then was an ongoing problem in addition to today.
If her mother keeps telling her about the troubles that they are going through in detail, Callie can’t just forget that. After her mom says that, Callie spaced out, “I tried to concentrate on what the mother was saying... The mother’s mouth was moving but the character who was me was walking away” (18). She says this in a third person point of view as though she faded out of the reality, and watched herself get up. That’s when she walked into the visitor’s bathroom, and cut her wrist with the teeth of the paper towel dispenser (18), “There was a jab, bright beads of blood, and finally I was OK.” Callie stated after (18).
