Townsend states in the beginning of her book, “She was as brave as all her people- not a simple joyful worshipper of English men or power, but a real and complicated woman... She is worthy of our respect, not condescension,” (Townsend xi). This quote helps lead the readers to gain a greater admiration for Pocahontas; she is not just a princess in a Disney movie but a hero to her people.

Introduction The book: Black Macho And The Myth Of The Superwoman was written by Michele Wallace in 1979. Wallace (1979) posits that Black women were excluded from the rhetoric of The Civil Rights Movement and rejected by Black men for their perceived benefits during slavery. The writer details her experiences growing up in Harlem, New York as a Black middle-class woman, and how they motivated her to become a Black feminist and advocate for civil rights. She condemns Black men and The Civil Rights Movement for validating the White man’s imposed image of masculinity. At the same time, she debunks the stereotype of the incredibly resilient Black woman that Black women quietly accept.

I realize that Nettle is successful because Nettie is quite self-sufficient and Nettie never judges her personal worth in relation to men.
This inspires me to feel gratitude towards the mother, as it shows that she is helpful, always there and willing to help her son. I suppose I appreciate this mother’s dedication, as in this society, it is rare to find such commitment mothers or fathers. Being present and supportive can go far for your child. Therefore, the first stanza uses rhyme in order to influence the audiences’ feeling about the mother. The second stanza also creates a rhyme at the end of each sentence, “recording… leaving… unreeling…” These are similar to the first stanza but have the same “ing” sound at the end of each word.
She is able to survive through the good and bad and share those experiences with her child. She listens to her child and is there for them no matter the circumstance. Not all ideal mothers are happy, but she sets her sadness aside and hides it behind a smile. An ideal mother contributes to the building up of a nation and opposes
Kamala Markandaya projects Rukmani as the one who celebrates her womanhood; balancing her emotionality with her indomitable spirit. Rukmani completely fits in to what Neena Arora’s observes, "In classical literature, a woman is always shown in relationship to man…Traditionally, a "good woman" is always synonymous with good wife and good wife must be chaste, faithful and virtuous like Sita or Savitri." Kamala Markandaya 's Nectar in a Sieve portrays its positive women characters as ideal sufferers and nurturers. (Insha 180)
