Even while being saved she was quite independent and didn't really have to be saved all the time. Another problem the princesses faces is that the characters around her won’t take her seriously. For example, whenever she spoke to her father he would not listen to a word she said. Which basically shows how the culture treats them for beauty and leaves out that she has a brain at all. A girl shouldn’t wait for the prince to rescue.
However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.

Cinder and Kai both got their respective thrones, but they finally realized that this would cause them to be apart. I am glad that they touched on the fact that Cinder had zero experience in government and that leading would not be easy for her. I didn’t even have a problem with her want to dissolve the monarchy on Luna, because that made sense. What I didn’t like was that someone who did not want to be Queen would agree to be Empress by marrying Kai. While the argument could be made that she would be able to make changes while not having the burden of all of the responsibility on her, it just doesn’t make sense.
She cannot constrain herself to the artificial behavior of those part of it. After being disgraced from the social circle, Lily could’ve easily used the letters to expose Bertha and reclaim her name. However, even though Bertha has antagonizes her throughout the novel, she cannot compel herself to do such a thing and burns the letters in Seldon’s fireplace. Lily’s righteousness also prevents her from finding a suitable husband-- the only way in which she can rise to the upper class. She refuses to participate in a loveless marriage that only acts as a business relation.
Patricia White further argues that characters that are portrayed as a lesbian or gay are often consigned to the status of supporting characters (p. 148). This is completely true because Snug is not a main protagonist in the film and the audience did not get to see her relationship with Celie blossom. Shug enters into the film for a brief moment just to act as a trigger for Celie’s new sexuality rather her lover. This was down because of the period the movie was set in, so the producers had to portray Celie as a woman not allowed to her sexuality.
She has no one to lean on for financial support and is forced to become part of the working class. At first Lily embraces it because independence is something she has been searching for throughout the novel. There is even an instance when Rosedale offers to help her, claiming: “ ‘I’d set you up over them all-I’d put you where you could wipe your feet on e’m’ ” (Wharton, 300). Rosedale offers Lily the ultimate social standing upgrade. She has the ability to live the way she has always wanted to, yet Lily turns down the offer.
Once her husband passes away, Janie views Jody's death as emancipation from the dominance he had established over her. She took advantage on her newly gained freedom and acted as such by letting down her hair, something Jody forbid due to its sexual undertone considering the other males in town. Also, she rebels against his wish to be called Jody by referring to him as Joe, symbolizing Janie no longer being under Jody's control. Janie tells Phoeby that she feels that widows do not need to mourn for such a long time, suggests that she believes women do not need to stay tied down to a man but rather should continue to find joy and pleasure in their lives even after loss. Although Janie is criticized by her society, she is seen as a pioneer of feminine freedom in a patriarchy dominant world.
That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. Daisy and Tom’s love wasn’t real love because if it was he would have been there for his daughters birth instead of God knows with whom. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays women as hopeless and better off being stupid so they wouldn’t process and realize that their husband didn’t really love them and that love is just a unrealistic dream. Further, a modern writer Zora Neale Hurston wrote in her short story about a married couple in a small community. Where the wife named Lena has an open affair in front of the town and her husband.
Plus, Proctor’s third son is not baptized because Proctor will not “let Mr. Parris lay a hand upon my (Proctor’s) baby.” Proctor doesn’t see Parris as an honorable leader of the church, but that is clouding his participation in a religious practice, baptism. The final reason why Proctor’s religious knowledge and participation are clouded is because he believes Reverend Parris is greed because Parris was “the first minister ever did demand the deed to his house,” and he “preached nothing but golden candlesticks until he had them.” Once again, one who is Puritan needs to have faith in their religious leader, but Proctor can’t. As a result, he isn’t a devout
