The scarlet letter ‘A’ did not stand for “adultery” anymore. It stood for “able.” “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.
Nevertheless, Calpurnia goes above and beyond when she decided to take their own needs before her own, by comforting them and not letting them worry about something, when she is clearly worried herself. She makes people reevaluate the relationship that black people can have with white people, by showing the close and nurturing relationship that she has primarily with Scout, but also with Jem. Her continual dedication to caring for Jem and Scout is not something that they would necessarily realize, but subconsciously they know what she does for them and how much concern and love she puts into looking after them. Even though it is her job to cook and look after the kids, she has this bond that makes her more like a surrogate mother towards them, in which it could be because she has been with them before Scout was born. However, Calpurnia has this never ending love that she feels towards the kids, and no matter what, it will never go away.
She shows how strength comes in in all different manners. Power can come from a person 's physical features, through good deeds, or money. Janie 's hair is an example of a woman 's power, and Hurston uses Janie 's hair as a way to introduce the idea that strength causes conflict in the world. Hurston used this conflict throughout the book warn society about how it could be running itself off the rails, and by giving an early warning Hurston shows that she believes that society will be able to correct its own course by becoming more accepting. Zora Neale Hurston uses a woman 's suffering as well as black inequality to warn the world about their inherent fate.
To expose the torment women face, Clinton uses anaphora to conjure feelings of sympathy. She deliberately repeats the same phrase in the beginning of each sentence to emphasize the violation of rights women face and make the idea prominent to the audience. She also emphasizes the “duties” that women are sometimes obligated to do within the family when she states that “families rely on mothers and wives for emotional support and care. Families rely on women for labor in the home. And increasingly, everywhere, families rely on women for income needed to raise healthy children and care for other relatives.” She is able to clarify how women are as equally, if not more important than men when it comes to the responsibilities and how their rights should be treated as
An experience I had involving ethics in relation to an interprofessional collaboration was in my present nursing case. Prior to me starting my patient a 13-year-old girl had a severe asthma attack and went into cardiac arrest, died and was brought back to life this past February. Although the EMTs were able to bring her back, she has been in a coma ever since. What makes this case an ethical dilemma is that several months ago the doctors wanted to diagnose her as brain dead and remove her from life support. Through the use of medical terminology, lack of understanding about her daughter’s condition and unempathetic doctors they managed to convince the mother that her child had no hope of survival.
She is able to make many connections using what Atticus taught her, and she truly understands the meaning of standing in another person’s shoes. Scout still tries to convince Atticus that she doesn’t need to go to school. Her defense is that the Ewell’s don’t go to school. Atticus tries to explain their situation to Scout and she still doesn’t understand. He tries to simplify it by saying, “You, Miss Scout Finch, are of the common folk.
This is shown when Malala constantly stands up for girl’s education and does not back down. In I am Malala, recalling an interview, Malala writes, “We are really sad the situation is getting worse. We were expecting peace and to go back to school. The future of our country can never be bright if we don’t educate the young generation. The government should take action and help us… I’m not afraid of anyone.
Similarly, Terri Kanefield shows the great inequality in black and white schools in “Imagine This Was Your School.” Along with with Barbara Johns, other students campaigned for desegregation. In Lewis’s article, Malala was a fifteen year old girl and at the time faced a deadly fear. Her home town was under the control of the Taliban. The group demanded the
While most women from her era view their duties as satisfying and fulfilling, Edna finds herself interacting with her children perfunctorily, with no inner joy. Her other wifely duties bring her no excitement, only disappointment. The gender set rules hinder Edna’s character in many ways. These norms limit her freedom, but more importantly, it compels her to feel trapped within a society bound by expectations. Furthermore, it influences her outlook on life and perhaps the state of her personal life, which causes her to be more self- involved.
Three lessons we learn in this novel are, being proud to be yourself, not letting popularity get the best of you, and embracing your differences. In life, being true to who you are can play a big part in your self- esteem and overall happiness. Stargirl has no trouble expressing herself. She sticks out from the norm by wearing her extravagant outfits, singing to students in the cafeteria, and being kind to literally everyone. She doesn’t care who may or may not like her, and some may describe her as blithe.
