In contrast to past gender stereotypes, they argue that girls should be strong, independent, and intelligent. Orenstein takes a second wave feminism approach, meaning females are just as capable as males. She references how she commonly writes about feminism and warning parents of a “preoccupation of body and beauty” in order to pull for a change in society (327). The beauty standards give women an impossible set of goals deterring their confidence. In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329).

This reckless decision leads to the death of Zeke and Hart becoming permanently injured from the whirring lugger, causing Hart to retreat into a world of self-pity and shutting off the rest of the world. Hart felt into a ‘subdued kind of dreaminess’ as he indulged himself in reading books, oblivious and lost to the world outside.

Paris defended his niece Abigail from the beginning because he believe that she was telling the truth always. Never did it cross his mind that she would betray him and all he has done for her.

I chose the word “sacrifice” because it is demonstrated repeatedly throughout the story. Sacrifice is “the act of giving up something that you want to keep especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone”. Romeo sacrificed his safety.

Scarlett and Melanie are two ladies to look at that always wear big puffy dresses that are very wide and wear some sort of headwear that looks like ribbon in a decorative style. After clothing the second thing I think about if the way the movie was written up. The fact that all of this was going down during the civil war really added a little extra spice. I believe with the addition of the civil war time period it really creates two conflicts in this movie for certain characters. Some characters like Scarlett have internal and external conflicts like having to worry about her husbands and who she really loves but then has external conflicts with the yankees and having to run then off or even kill them if needed.
Time tricked us, I think, or maybe it was the Sisters that brought us here too soon. But there will be a Queen of Hearts soon, and Catherine, I do think its meant to be you.

To some extent, protective orders seem to work. However, there are always fatal consequences to those who decide to take legal action. Women, in particular, who decide to end their relationship with their husbands or partner maybe at risk of encountering sexual and physical assault, stalking, or homicide from the person they are leaving (Dobash, Cavanagh, & Medina-Ariza, (2007); Kurz, 1996). It is wise to leave their abuser, but it comes with a cost. According to Kurz (1996), she states that even after women leave their spouse; the fear of violence leaves the women of giving up child support or compromise on the amount.
Women have been involved in, “The movement that articulates the rationale for reproductive freedom in positive moral and political terms, as a requirement for social justice, human rights, and women’s well-being” (Roberts 1). With that, each side of the controversy can be explored more closely and specifically. Many people still hold a resilient opposition to birth control of any form.
