Juvenal Urbino, and through this, Marquez develops traits dissimilar from ones Fermina possessed as a girl. The first of these her independence. For the largest part of her youth, Fermina Daza had been under the strict control of her father and rebelled against his wishes, but as a wife, her independent nature is allowed to flourish. As a wife, she controls her household, and is able to direct it where she wishes, and as recognized by herself, “in nothing was she more demanding or less forgiving than in the management of her house”(144). Although she relies on servants to carry out her tasks, Fermina directs what happens, and maintains complete control of the house’s functions, independent of her husband or any other individual.

She first entered the Magdalene Laundry in Stanhope street Dublin when she was fourteen years old, and she remained there for the next four years. She was taken care of by her grandmother until the age of eleven, when her grandmother unfortunately passed away. She spent the next few years mostly fending for herself as her mother was unmarried and didn’t take good care of her. At 14, her mother decided she should continue the rest of her education with the nuns, but her mother was unaware of what really lay in store inside those laundries that the nuns
Once her mother was in London with her, she insisted that Harriet still perform all the duties of running a household, which she did and kept up with her strict writing schedule every day (Postlethwaite, 1989). This along with Martineau’s mother constantly enforcing the gender roles of running a household led Harriet to fall ill for six years (Clarke, 1877). During this time she was able to get out from under her mother and her gender role. However, Martineau discovered her feminine side and adopted writing styles such as autobiographies and personal diaries (Postlethwaite, 1989).

The description of women in history during my time as an adolescent was pretty limited besides a few key mentions. The likes of Susan B. Anthony, Queen Elizabeth, Rosa Parks, and Eleanor Roosevelt summed up the general list of impactful women within society in the 1900's. Though these women made profound strides within, civil rights, women's suffrage, education and politics the story told has always been one dimensional. The narrative regarding women in the 1900's was very single note. A woman's purpose was to support her household, husband, children and remain unseen.
Apart from the protagonist, the story introduces two characters that play a major role in Eduardo’s life. Eduardos’ mother, a hardworking woman, is introduced as a housekeeper from Weslaco, Texas. Throughout the story, the readers were able to see the mothers’ character not settle for less. She was introduced to many opportunities to follow her dreams and had a great support system encouraging her. “After six months of training, Mom was on her own and held the job title X-Ray Technician,” (Rice, 2011, p. 317) this shows the tremendous effort to achieve her goals.
As indicated in the title, the new woman is a literally different type of woman who has changed in every aspect of her life. She is a well-educated, free spirited and independent woman figure. She has changed the traditional ideas about ideal womanhood in the late 19th century. Because until this time, the woman was only a mother and wife in the public eye. Her all responsibilities and duties were being consisted by her husband, her children and housework.
In order to properly understand the significance of the artist Mary Cassatt and the influence she had on the focus of feminism, we must take her life into consideration. She was by no means your average woman of the late Nineteenth Century; most women would have been schooled in keeping homes, cooking and learning how to serve their husbands and future children. This never seemed to be a thought in the singular and seemingly solitary mind of the artist in question even though she was raised to be a proper lady. Born Mary Stevenson Cassatt, in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, 1844, the young artist was raised in an affluent and comfortable family. During this time, an education was not viewed as complete until the student in question had traveled abroad and bettered
