The burn was severe, and lasted her whole life. The Ashley family was treating her terribly! Elizabeth didn’t understand this cruel treatment, so she ran away. Elizabeth had worked for the Ashley family a long time, and losing her was not something the Ashleys would put up with. The Ashleys went to law enforcement, forcing
Which possibly could have turned the entire case around she chose to stay quiet and comply with what everyone was telling her. Mayella was was just a poor girl who had never been to school a day in her life and suffered so much abuse from her father, she didn’t give herself the opportunity to be powerful. In a time of oppression and depression Mayella standing up would have been a monumental change but she never seized it and took advantage, she let everyone else take advantage of
Television was not accepted into the household. Even today her parents still do not have a TV . “Growing up was very hard without a television because I didn’t feel connected to the world.” A major event took place in the film industry. The movie Star Wars was developed and was a top grossing film. Since Deb’s parents didn’t let her watch movies she snuck out with her sister just so she could see it because all of her friends were raving about it.
Melinda struggles to stand up to Andy and her classmates because of the fear that no one believe her. Hester faces the conflict of standing up to Roger and stopping him from tormenting Dimmesdale. “Melinda has kept the attack a secret because she is ashamed. She feels she brought it on herself, even though she tried to fight the boy off” (Constantakis). This quote describes how Melinda fights to gain power during her whole freshman year as well as when she was raped by Andy.
For the most part in her life, her mother isolated and imprisoned her from everyone. She was unable “to leave the apartment for anything other than school”, which left her with what she claims as “nothing that could help me fit in with the other kids.” She was so devoid of social interactions and freedom that when she was thirteen years old and met Charlene, she attempted to emulate her because she was “jealous of her life.” She tried to do everything in her power to mature. She was even willing to exchange her morals and values to have what she believed to allow her to have power and control. She followed Charlene into the car of older boys whom she didn't even know. She let Rodney (one of the older boys) have his way with her without any hesitations.
Curley’s wife is the only woman on the ranch, and none of the ranch hands will talk with her, out of fear of dealing with Curley. Curley’s wife is unhappy with her marriage, talking to Lennie about her dream of acting saying, “If I'd went, I wouldn't be livin' like this, you bet" (Steinbeck 88). The other ranch hands are convinced that she’s looking for trouble, when she really just wants to talk. She expresses many times how she is not happy with Curley, since he controls seemingly her every move. In a different time period, much later than the 1930s, Curley’s wife would be able to pursue her acting career without the constant pressure of a man who controls her.
“I wrestled boys. I wrestled girls. I wrestled anything, and everything, remotely within my weight class. I failed every time.” This quote is from Megan Koester in the article, “My Short-Lived Career as a Female Wrestler.” Megan was in high school when she started wrestling; she was horrible at physical education which made her want to join a sport to please her dad, who was a Teen Olympian. In the article it claims she wrestled boys and girls, but towards the end of the article it explains she only wrestled her weight class which was 2 other girls.
Her decision is based on the struggles she went through all her high school days. Also, during the second movie she fights with the parliament for her position as a queen knowing that she will not have a king by her side. She knows that she has the capacity and intelligence required to have an important position without the help of a man. That is a consequence of her single mother, whom raised her all alone, empowering her as a woman and becoming a feminist. This is the opposite of the parliament, who all have been living in royal families all their life and are drunk on man-power in Genovia.
Sexism in sports is a wide ranged topic that many people have ignored for most of their lives. Throughout the decades, women have been tossed away and not been allowed to do so many things in their life, that men have been allowed to do. For example, decades ago, women were never allowed to hunt, be seperate from their husbands, or even play sports til the 1900’s. Their only job was to sit home and care for the kids while the men did all the dirty work. Now, our society has separated boys sports from women sports in a big way that has changed lives, with money.Women’s treatment in sport has always been a wild fire of bigger gender inequality.
In the years when Christina Rosetti was alive and writing poems, a “fallen woman” was someone that was either seduced or raped if she left the house without an escort or stayed out past dark. These women were outcasted from communities, they were unable to marry, and they were unable to move towns. This idea is close to Christina’s heart because she was an active volunteer at a home for fallen women. Obviously, it can be understood how different the times are because today we would be calling these women victims, and consoling them, not punishing them. So, the difference in culture and ideology really need to be taken into consideration before thoroughly analyzing the poem; otherwise, it would not make sense to the
Jett still was woman, so it wasn’t exactly easy for her to make it into the music industry. She attempted to get a record label to disperse her new album, but over 23 different companies denied her. She was so angry that she and Laguna founded Blackheart Records in 1980, allowing Jett to be the first female artist to own and have complete control over an independent record company. Joan didn’t make the record; she was aided from the band “The Who”. Joan was a good friend of the members in the band.
The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
