In the text, the girl does not discuss how she feels about the operation and avoids receiving any help to her situation This can be seen when the girl says "But I don't care about me. And I'll do it and then everything will be fine" (Hemingway 3). This verse shows readers how the man has pushed the girl in such a way, where she is forcing herself to go through the operation and hating herself for it. She could have avoided it all through communication with the man, instead she conceals her feelings and assumes everything will be "fine".This point is clear because the girl has concealed her emotions on the topic of abortion and it has led her to commit in something she obviously does not want to undergo and it has made her lose her sense of self worth. By saying she doesn't care for herself and assuring everything will be fine, it is obvious that the girl has a fear of abandonment.
She is being easily swayed by the man who is making her think that the baby is “the only thing that is bothering [them and] it’s the only thing that’s made [them] unhappy” (212). The “love” she has for him seems real to her at first, but soon she realizes it is not even true because she does not really mean anything to him and the baby she is carrying does not make him happy at all since he is going through so much just to get rid of it. She is presented with this realization when she says, “but if I do it, then it will be nice again if I say things are like white elephants, and you’ll like it” and to that he replies, “I’ll love it. I love it now but I just can’t think about it. You know how I get when I worry” (213).

Though she show him that she is ready to leave him but in reality she is not willing to destroy her marriage.Richard is ready to sue Jerry for his offense of adultery with his wife without marrying her.
Instead, there is a tension behind her question that communicates an additional “No one is going to do anything about him, so he is off scot-free again?” type of message with it, very accusing and vengeful. Furthermore, the conditions described are not optimal for an empathetic discussion about Larry’s health. The door “slapped” shut and Ginny is trying to preoccupy herself, likely in anticipation of the inevitable fury Rose will possess in “discussion” with Ginny. Offset by a comma, Rose then asks, “He’s okay, then?” which feels like the slight pause one might feel before someone else is about to vent. The scene is set up with the perfect sense that Rose is going to do anything but empathetically inquire about her father’s accident and recovery; rather, she is about to accuse him of carelessness and curse him.
With this revelation, Blanche is deprived of her chief attributes — that is, her illusions and her pretense. She is then forced to admit all of her past. After hearing her confessions, we see that Mitch aligns himself with the Stanley world. He cannot understand the reasons why Blanche had to give herself to so many people, and, if she did, he thinks that she should have no objections to sleeping with one more man. But Blanche's intimacies have always been with strangers.
Timko noticed how throughout the book, Edna was being suppressed by her husband and that it is rather unfortunate that the idea of male dominance is so widely accepted at that time. Towards the end of the book, Edna says: “I am no longer one of Mr. Pontellier’s possessions,” here, Edna is claiming that she is for herself, not for anyone to take a hold of (Chopin 146). She is realizing that she has the power to give herself what she needs.. She realizes that the male dominance overpowering women takes that sense of self independence away and begins to realize that finding independence will be a continuous uphill

However, right after she mentions little on difference feminism, she mentions a more equality feminism viewpoint. She continues to do this in the following 10 pages, constantly fluttering between the two ideas. Constantly throwing her reader from side to side confuses him/her, since he/she cannot keep track on which topic she is on nor which side she is for. Although it is better to appear unbiased, Pollitt just ends up confusing and jumbling her reader’s mind. In order to have a better focus, she should have discussed one form, then discussed the other as opposed to switching every two to three paragraphs.
