All the loss has left Liesel distraught and their lasting memories help her develop into a well-rounded character. Liesel’s loss of her biological family was an aid in developing the person she would become.

For example, on page 54, a woman said, "This woman has brought shame upon us all, and ought to die."

Female were less important than males back in the ancient times. The audiences would listen to Jason rather than Medea because of that reason.
