In her autobiography, I Came a Stranger Hilda Polacheck reveals the conflicting role of women in the late 19th / early 20th century as workers, caregivers, and social activists in a conflicting age of progress, hardship and missed expectations. Coming from a very traditional Jewish family in Poland it seems that Polacheck was destined to be a full time mother and wife never having immersed herself in the American society where women were becoming more and more relevant. The death of her father changes all of this forcing herself, her mother, and her siblings to fight for survival. This fight is not only what transformed Hilda Polacheck into the woman we remember her as today, but into an American . At age thirteen and even much later after her husband’s death forced Polacheck to go to work to keep her family fed and clothed.

Their job is to retrain and monitor the Handmaids, lecture them how bad and dangerous the old world is while the new one is much safer and more worth living so that the Handmaids will be obedient and submissive. Handmaids are women with viable ovaries who were either divorced, married to a man who had been divorced, or had reached a certain age without ever marrying before Gilead.
This behavior and her inability to keep her mouth shut in certain situations resulted in her losing her job more than once (Stockett 39-40), and also causes her being dismissed by Hilly Holbrook, her first boss. Even though Aibileen Clark, the other main housemaid in the novel, also dares to speak up against her employer Elizabeth Leefolt at the end of the novel (Stockett 441), she only acquired the courage from her friend Minny, who did it before. This again shows Minny’s distance from the other housemaids, and the importance of her role in the

It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223) This differs greatly from Jane, who begins to sympathize with the plight of all domestic women through her experience with the woman behind the yellow wallpaper. Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.
Her sister has taken over the family and sucking the life out of Sethe. The roles switch in Denver’s life and while she still has that maternal instinct to protect, she is now responsible for her mother. Along with this change of responsibility, Denver does the one thing Sethe has yet to have done, ask for help. She goes to Lady (IDK) and asks her for a job so she can start to provide for what is left of her dysfunctional family. It would seem probable for Denver to get a job to start saving up money so she can finally leave her house and start her own life away from the mess that has been created, but that is not her goal.
The characters in Kate Chopin’s stories are either dynamic an or static because each woman has their own personality. One of the woman’s finds her inner self after the tragic accident of her husband, the other woman just relieves the past but does not have any major change in her character. The last woman her personality came out and had to deal with temptation. Kate Chopin’s “Story of an hour” Mrs. Mallard is a dynamic character due to the fact that a transformation to her character had occurred when she found out about her husband’s death.

These suggestions, however, are her only options in her society, and she realizes this. Another example happens when Lawrence describes and explains Mabel’s past. He explains that for the past decade Mabel had kept the house after her mother’s death (Lawrence 458). This is another example of man vs. society conflict that reveals that women were expected to take care of the house duties. Instead of balancing the duties to keep up the house between all the siblings or even leaving them to one of the older brothers, Mabel is expected and does take up this responsibility despite her young age at the time.

In fact, if anything you're almost guaranteed to make it worse, because you'll remind your wife how bad things have to be that she can't feel ANYTHING even when you're apparently trying so hard.
