In “Identities” by W.D. Valgardson, the author shows through her work how ignorant society has become. Based on the setting, the man was misinterpreted by the police officer. People’s judgments of others lead to irrational circumstances. “When the officer,… who is nervous because of the neighborhood, who is suspicious because of the car and because he is trained to see an unshaven man in blue jeans as a potential thief…”; is made as an example of the everyday individual in society that would automatically judge a person on how they look (6). No matter how rich or poor, good looking or not, able or disable are all judged no matter what the situations are.
Overall, the sister is portrayed as the nemesis figure because she rewards Oochigaeskw for all her good intentions and later punishes Oochigaeskw’s older sisters for being immoral. When she is being introduced, Nowlan quickly states that she has two sisters who are quite abusive. As stated in her introduction, “The two older girls considered the youngest a great nuisance and shamefully mistreated her; kicking and cuffing her about and burning her hands and face intentionally.” The two older girls appear to be similar in character to the stepsisters of Cinderella. Unlike her older sisters, Oochigeaskw decides to do what she feels is right and chooses not to do anything negative.
Saying that women talk is a disease has a very negative connotation because it compares women talk to a grotesque and revolting sickness. The metaphors have an effect on the views upon women by saying women cant keep secrets and are infectious, meaning women’s ways of talking are spread easily among them. It is a representation of what women are known for doing from the point of view of a man. Simile was used in the poem. The way women spread was compared to ‘’Philadelphia Cream Cheese.’’
They make dandelion soup. Dandelion wine. Nobody loves the head of a dandelion. Maybe because they are so many, strong, and soon (Morrison 47).” Pecola is realizing the views that society has of blacks and women.
If a woman chose to break these rules, she would be subject to public ridicule.

“Havisham” is a poem based on “Miss.Havisham” on the novel “The Great Expectations”. The author Carol Ahn Duffy used several techniques to describe her feelings and symbolizing her emotions with objects emphasizing love and hate throughout the poem. In the poem, she introduced 5 different colours to represent her feelings and emotions which has made it very effective for the readers. For example, “green” implies jealousy, which shows how Havisham is envying the woman who took her man, compeyson, and is known to be very negative colour.
Dismantling the Notions from “Eat Pray Love” The opinion piece by Liz Jones titled “Eat and Pray all you like but it won’t make you lovelier” is a critical piece about the ideas from the movie “Eat Pray Love”, which was based of Elizabeth Gilbert 's novel of the same name. In the article Jones 's purpose is to persuade the audience, which are middle aged American women, how middle-age women who go on self help tourism trips, such as the type seen in Eat pray Love, are absurdly minded, thus conveying that such kinds of trips are unreasonable. In order to accomplish this, Jones utilizes a harsh tone when describing expectations of self-help travel versus reality, making “Eat Pray Love” appear to be purposely deceptive, using quotations on Gilbert 's own words and by conducting an Ad Hominem attack on Elizabeth Gilbert herself to encourage readers to critically question the notion of self-help tourism. One way in which middle aged American women are convinced that self-help tourism does not guarantee self-fulfilment, thus these trips are unreasonable is by utilizing a harsh tone when describing Jones’s anecdotes of her own travel experiences.

In the article "In Search of Identity in Cisneros 's The House on Mango Street” Maria Elena de Valdes describes Esperanza as “a young girl surrounded by examples of abused, defeated, worn-out women, but the woman she wants to be must be free’’ (de Valdes). Esperanza desires to be like the woman in the movies “with red red lips who is beautiful and cruel” (88). Esperanza witnesses the abuse of her female neighbors by their husbands and wants to become sexually independent, not subjugated by any man. Esperanza does not want to “grow up tame like the others who lay their necks on the threshold waiting for the ball and chain” (87). After dinner, Esperanza “leaves the table like a man, without putting back the chair or picking up the plate,” (89) revealing her aspiration to be strong and independent.
Unlike many women, she was able to break away from the ideals of marriage, and free/liberate herself from the nightmare she was living in. Though it seemed like she was incapable of making “proper” decisions she knew what was best for herself. The character blatantly comes out and says “you” meaning John was the reason that she was imprisoned in his “game.”. The irony stems from how she always would blame herself for anything she felt she did wrong, but now blamed the cause for her problems, being John. Though she may have not won overall as she ended
