Conclusion The theories presented, Jane Goodall’s observations on chimps, Alfred Adler’s inferior complex theory and Karl Marx’s class conflict theory, all explain Jill’s behavior. Through understanding of Jane’s observations on chimps we see that Jill only wanted to protect her son. Alfred would have explained her behavior by using the inferior complex, showing that Jill simply felt inferior and just wanted to feel superior. To conclude, Karl Marx would think that Jill did not want her son to be the exploited part of his theory.
The portrayal of the mother and aunt support the fact that Snope’s actions are twisted and unjust. If Snopes was the narrator, he would have told the events solely from his point of view and would try to get readers to back his actions. Snope’s would offer readers more insight into why he had such rage against his employers. He possibly would have used flashbacks from his time as a soldier to gain emotional support from
Hence, A Raisin in the Sun play is feminist since it depicts the leadership of a woman who exerts control on the collective decisions for the family, when instead, a woman is stereotypically expected to be submissive to the men in the
who she was very close to. She explains that her father taught her and her brothers free will and to feel like they were human beings, although it was very dangerous for a slave. The more a slave possessed the notion of their own free will, the more likely they were to be disobedient, run away and be of no use to their owner. Slaves were supposed to think that they were less than human so that the masters not only had physical control over them but psychological control as well.
Schmitt explains, “whatever the differences in men's and women's psyches—empathy, jealousy, cognitive abilities, mate preferences—many theories in psychology assume that they result primarily from direct gender socialization by parents, media, and societal institutions” (92). The way society expects the different genders to appropriate to current cultural standards and norms truly affects how people handle the stress in their lives. It is no secret that women are expected to act a certain way, especially when handling stress. Country singer
The role that Native American women played in the fur trade was one of proportionate importance to the exchange as a whole. It was important that there was a solid basis to the commercial relations of those who took part within the area, however, the pelt business was defined by the monopoly of fur that certain groups of Natives had. As such, they became particularly protective and envious of any new arrivals who would attempt to encroach on their sites or on their business relations, going as far as to kill them. In order to keep the peace, traders would take up half a dozen wives whom which came from prestigious families of neighboring tribes. This group of women would perform trade, with the little that was provided to them, with anyone
For example, in Line 8, the chief emphasized how dependent the settlers are towards the tribe, and what would happen if the tribe shows the same hostility the British show them (“We can hide our provisions and fly into the woods. And then you must consequently famish by wrongdoing your friends”). The use of ‘friends’ in the line ‘fly into the woods’ is noteworthy, due to how it emphasizes how (1) the tribe’s congenial actions and aid should be enough to be considered as friends and emphasizes their hospitality and encourage; and how (2) the tribe can take away their help just as easily as they went and helped them. In addition, the word ‘fly’ in ‘fly into the woods’ not only demonstrates movement, but the word is ironic in the sense of how the the word implies an oppressed connotation, not a freed connotation as it is usually used for. In addition to this line, Lines 18-19 (“Captain Smith, this might soon be your fate too through your rashness and unadvisedness.”).
The director, Phillip Noyce made Rabbit Proof Fence to try and illustrate the shear enormity of the oppression suffered by aboriginal families at the hands of white Australian politicians and the government. The Australian administrators passed a policy that forced pure blooded, half castes and quarter castes Aboriginal children to be taken from their families and their land to be bred and mixed into the white Australian community. The government believed that this was in the Aboriginals best interest but their motive was to eventually eliminate Aboriginal blood to promote a white Australia. This policy is now referred to as the ‘Stolen Generation’. The pain and suffering the Aborigines experienced, the oppression and heart-break only ceased
French leaders created rules, regulations, and stereotypes in order to make Native American women appear less appealing in order to prevent such marriages from happening. The French did such acts because they found it was “fundamental the regulation of sex and marriage was to establishing a successful colony” (Reis, 58). The major similarity between both French men and Native women was their
Why The Rabbit Proof Fence is an Effective way of educating Australian Students about the Issue of the Stolen Generation. If you were taken away from your family, would you be able to walk 1500 miles to find the place you used to call home? The Rabbit Proof Fence is a movie based on a true story about 3 girls, Molly, Gracie and Daisy, who are stolen from their families and sent to Moore River Native Settlement and run away to find their way back home. This movie is definitely an effective way to educate Australian students about The Stolen Generation.
A powerful use of an “open ending,” to convey authorial intention is demonstrated through ‘Girl Talking’. Here, the ending is not victorious, but illustrates how in this patriarchal society men still hold the power. Therefore, horror will remain hidden under a bed of lies; little girls will never understand the true nature of men. Moreover, the tragic irony of the ending gives the impression that rape and abuse is still a rising issue and all the girls can do is guard their hearts.
The end scene of Fences and Keepers of the House both represent the possibility of redemption in the face of the sins of the fathers. In his play Fences, August Wilson shows to the reader how a person can redeem himself if he is able to embrace both the evil and good of the man and find forgiveness of the father’s sins. However, Shirley Ann Grau presents that a person cannot redeem itself once the sins happen and the characters are stuck in the cycle of vengeance due to their unyielding characteristics. Throughout his play Fences, August Wilson presents characters who are stuck in the cycle of the bitter relationship between father and son due to the past sins of the fathers.
