You have to demand respect in this world, ain 't nobody just gonna hand it to you. How you carry yourself, what you stand for--that 's how you gain respect.

As one can see, many mothers in today 's society would not be nearly as picky and constructive as the mother within "Girl" written by Jamaica Kincaid. Young girls almost always look up first to their mother for guidance and instruction on how to be a woman. Although the advice used in this story was used to help the young girl, it was also used to scold her as well. The mother 's strong belief in a woman having domestic knowledge is what drives her to preach the life lessons of a good woman to her daughter. It is through these lessons that she hopes for her daughter to be respected within her own home and by her community as well.
She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
He responded with unnecessary harshness, to which Cassie felt humiliated and angry. She stood up for herself prominently by screaming at the man and had to be taken away by Stacey.

Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice) is about Ishida, who bullied Shouko for being deaf in elementary school to the point she had to transfer away. Despite the entire class taking part in being mean to Shouko, they instantly blame only Ishida, and alienate him just as he did to Shouko.

At the beginning of the book, Scout wants to pick a fight at the slightest aggravation and is high tempered. One example is when she beats up Walter Cunningham for not having his lunch and getting her in trouble in class. She rubbed his nose in the dirt, but Jem came by and told her to stop. Atticus then told Scout that if he heard she was fighting, he would wear her out. Throughout the book, Scout fights less and less because she realizes it does her no good.
