The last reason why Hannah is still rejecting her heritage is because she is not accepting the clothes that they wear. There are also many people that believe that Hannah is starting to like her new clothes. For example she never complains about what she is wearing. In all the chapters it doesn’t say one thing about what she is wearing. The truth is that she doesn’t like her knew clothes.
Taylor did not want to end up becoming a mother, which is something people say is an inevitable part of a woman’s life. Although she did not want motherhood, a child was still given to her anyway. And she learned to love that child unconditionally. Even though the circumstances are non traditional, Taylor, Turtle, Lou Ann and Dwayne Ray become a real family and the two women live through the burdens of motherhood together even though it was something Taylor never wanted. Furthermore, Taylor had never really loved anyone romantically before Estevan.
The Two sisters are raised the exact same way, but have two different effects on the way they want to express their now different cultures. Maggie wanted to express her culture in the way that her mother taught it, but Dee wanted to express her culture differently because she wasn’t appreciative of the one she was raised in. Dee was not happy with the farm life; she chose the city life over it. Her family ashamed her as she explains that she changed her name, “I couldn’t bear it any longer, being named after the people who oppress me.” (Walker 63). Dee didn’t let her culture decide her life or affect it.
She created her own leadership position that inspires others purely through persuasion. The reading said that she never actively sought out any official elected positions. I believe this is because she didn’t want to compromise her political views and beliefs, as the official elected representative for a group of constituents. Instead, she voluntarily fought for the civil rights of the dispossessed and marginalized groups. Although she was born into a wealthy household, she did not have a particularly happy childhood.
Women are not supposed to be seen with a lot of men because then they are called sluts or whores. Connie did not care about what she would be called, she cared about living her life and not to be bother by anyone. Still, Connie was strapped by society web of expectations for all
. . she was always waiting right around the bend with a new way to prove to me how little the whole thing mattered to her” (278). Sissy craves nothing more than her mother’s love and attention, but she realizes that Rose can never give her them. In her childhood, Sissy did not care if the attention she got from her mother was good or bad, as long as Rose acknowledged that she was there.
What Coraline realizes later is that no one is everything to someone. “To be totally all for someone, in fact, is to cease to exist, to be possessed (which is what the other mother offers) (Rudd).” The other mother is manipulative and controlling, she wants to be everything to Coraline to own her. Like when she says, “They say even the proudest spirit can be broken... with love. (Coraline, 2009)” After being offered to stay she realizes this and decides to stay in her world. Coraline knows that she can’t be everything to her parents, but they are not everything to each other either.
Breaking Social Norms In To Kill A Mockingbird In To Kill A Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, Lee depicts the main character Scout Finch as the primary feminist who defies social norms despite several influences in Maycomb County. Scout displays her feminist qualities throughout several occurrences in the novel. She continues to stay true to herself and fights for how she desires to act, while occasionally experimenting with her femininity. Ultimately, Scout overcomes the social norms placed upon women when she punches Francis in the face, picks a fight with Cecil Jacobs and chooses to spend most of her time playing with Jem and Dill. First and foremost, Scout escapes the restrictions imposed upon women by continuing to play with Jem and Dill instead of indulging herself in learning how to cook or drinking tea with other women.
The reason’s I say that is because my Mother will always be asking what I am doing or making sure I am doing something right. But in “Harrison Bergeron” the Mother I wouldn’t say she don’t care about Harrison but she didn’t make sure or watched over him as much to not let him plan attacks against the handicapped government. My second reason is that my Mother will always be the key part of my life meaning she will always tell me what and I know you will say that while that kind of the average Mother but in the novel the definition of an average Mother is the Harrison Mother so that’s another way my Mother is different. The last detail is that my Mother will always worry about me even if she doing something for me, unlike in the story the Mother of Harrison let the police come into her house and take her son without questioning them on what their actions are for taking her son, so my Mother is different from that because my mother will questioned them to the point where she will be questioning me and the police like she is a lawyer trying to get me out of trouble(even though I'm not it’s just an example). So as you can tell the difference between my Mother and the Mother in “Harrison Bergeron” is different in one being the
A prison could be defined as limiting, and though the dress itself is not forbidding Scout to do as she pleases, it still keeps her in confinement. The dress represents femininity, and that time being a woman excluded them from certain activities solely that were only capable by men. Thus, the reason why Scout wears overalls; she can do more than she ever could in a dress. Jem and Dill understand this and use to this to bully Scout into doing things she wasn’t comfortable with doing. Even with this, they didn’t bother to understand Scout’s point of view, furthermore if they had, some of the mishaps that occured could have possibly been
Esperanza means when she says, "I have decided not to grow up tame like the others who lay their necks on the threshold waiting for the ball and chain” that she will not be similar to her grandmother. She does not need to wait for a husband to marry, she will manage by herself and fight for herself. Furthermore, Esperanza does not want to be like so many girls her age, she wants to be wild and not to imprisoned by her husband. In addition, she has seen lives like Rafaela’s and her grandmother’s and does not want to fall in that trap. She does not want the life that she has seen her whole life and wants to carry herself being that she has seen others’ circumstances.
One examples of this is Aunt Alexandra. Aunt Alexandra hides her true self by nagging people and being strict. Even though she hides her true self, a few people like Atticus knows that she actually cares about her family more than nagging people and being strict. In the following quote, it will show how Aunt Alexandra was before she showed her true self to Miss Maudie and Scout. “She never lets a chance escape her to point out the shortcomings of other tribal groups to the greater glory of our own …” (page 172) In this quote, Scout is talking about how Aunt Alexandra doesn’t ever let a chance to nag people about how pure her family is and how impure their families are.
The reasoning behind this was because Atticus believed Scout needed a female figure to look up to, other than Calpurnia. When Scout discusses bringing Walter-a Cunningham-home for dinner, Aunt Alexandra immediately disregards the idea. Aunt Alexandra bluntly says the Cunningham’s are not people who the Finch’s wish to associate with. Although she is doing her best to help Scout understand social ranking she adds that Scout should always be nice and gracious to everyone, although “...you don’t have to invite him home” (9; ch 217). It is clear that Aunt Alexandra’s opinion of the Cunningham’s is dissatisfactory as opposed to her expectations of her family name.
The belief that I chose to write about is the belief that people should not wear makeup, well more specifically the belief that "Nobody needs to hide their true colors from others." Katherine believes that you shouldn 't need to wear makeup to be able to fit in. When Katherine first started noticing kids at her school wearing makeup, she wanted to be like them, to follow the bandwagon. She asked her mom if she could wear makeup, but her mother told her "No", and that absolutely opened her eyes, she realized that she didn 't have to do anything to be popular, or have friends, she just needed to be herself, and show her "true colors". I somewhat agree with her belief, but disagree in other ways.
In the story, Scout proves to us that she does not want to be treated like a girl. Though, this does not mean that she wants to be a boy. In the middle of the book, Aunt Alexandra begins to stay at the Finch household. This has an affect on Scout because she is starting to be taught to be like a young women. Scout shows us that she doesn’t like the idea of this and continues to refuse to become more feminine.
