Housewife In her article "Motherhood/Paradise Lost (Domestic Division)", Terry Martin Hekker, a housewife who had been married to John Hekker, her husband, discusses the drawbacks of housewife as an occupation for women by sharing with the public her experience as a housewife in two different situations and centuries.

7. Which character (or characters) do you believe is the greatest influence on Esperanza and her life? How did they influence her? Use evidence from three different vignettes to prove your claims. The characters that I think influenced Esperanza in the book her mom because whenever she had a problem or if something was going on in her life and if she thought something was wrong but people still did it like when tito’s friends took her friends key and said they wouldn’t give it back unless she would give each of them a kiss for them back and she did not think that they should make her do that to get her keys back.
The very title of my book The Red Tent shows how important of a role this tent has. Women only enter the red tent during childbirth or menstruation. This is because they see these times as sacred and something that men had no place in. While in the tent women would either enjoy their short break or face the inherent danger of childbirth. Because of this Dinah would know her mother and her aunts better than if she only knew them while around men.
Katniss is portrayed as an ultimate feminist being strong and only dependent on herself, while her mother and younger sister are shown as being weaker and needing someone else to care for their needs. There is evidence of this in the scene where Katniss has just come from the reaping and is saying her goodbyes before she heads out to the capitol. In this scene with her mother and sister, Katniss is telling her mother how their food will be provided and what Prim, her sister, needs to do in order to make money for the family. Katniss also tells her mother that she can not shut down again because this time no one will be there to take care of them. This scene from a feminist lens again portrays Katniss as strong and independent while her mother is a weaker and more dependent character.

She wants to have own independent personality instead of her husband and baby‘s vassal. This case just like a prime minster said “she does not want to wash cups to die.” She just wants to change it.
Fortunately, after reading throughout the story, we can see that the mother just wants her daughter to become a good and helpful woman. She tried to protect her little child away from bad things that happened everyday in society. Moreover, in the last line was written, “You mean to say that after all you are really going to be the kind of woman who the baker won’t let near the bread?”(Kincaid 172). Therefore, “it seem ironic that the mother has harshly demand the girl to learn all of the mother’s habits and methods, not giving the girl much of a word in any of her decisions, and then expects her to have the strength of her mother, strength that was learned through experience, not instruction” (Carroll). The short story “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid was a lesson of a mother to a daughter about to become a woman.
“Sur” challenges gender norms and societal expectations by the real accounts of a woman who took a risk, proving that females should not be limited to child bearing, cooking and cleaning. “Sur” motivates women like myself, that there is far more to be achieved beyond the domestic realm of the household, although it may not be socially acceptable initially. Mitchell notes that women have been perceived, historically to be more in tune with their emotions, which in this case leads to textual influence, permitting women to gain a sense of passion, drive or
