Another example of Tita showing us that she is a feminist is when she is rebellious.

Miss Pross and Lucie must live off of Lucie’s inheritance because of Miss Pross’ brother, Solomon, “a heartless scoundrel that who has stripped her of everything she possessed…and abandoned her in poverty for ever more”(72-73).
