As one can see, many mothers in today 's society would not be nearly as picky and constructive as the mother within "Girl" written by Jamaica Kincaid.

Today, indigenous women are beginning to thrive in American leadership and are once again tribal leaders like they were pre-colonialism. Even the most successful Native American women have faced unbelievable adversity, commonly including poverty in early life and sexism. But they also share rich traditions, female role models, and Native feminism.

While Elena is going to school, Lila is borrowing library books a learning in unison. Even when Lila resigns herself to staying in the neighbourhood, she remembers the luminosity learning created and wishes for Elena to continue studying, saying “No, don’t ever stop: I’ll give you the money” (312).

Although her mother restricted Welty to read Elsie Dinsmore, Welty still views her as an idol or someone she looks forward to. Similarly to Welty, the mother has a big preference and passion for reading books, magazines, short stories, etc. The author considers her mother as someone who mainly multitasks because she reads them while alternately do something else such as watching the oven and “taking part of the wolf in a game of “Little Red Riding Hood.”” Both Welty and her mother share a feeling of insatiability because they want to read, discover, and learn more in books.
