This action suggests that men alone are not able to nurture children. On the other hand, Victor is the perfect example of bad parenting, since he abandons his Creature and as a consequence causes the death of his family members. In contradiction, when Caroline dies for the wellbeing of her daughter, Victor does not even recognize his responsibility toward his Creature. In Frankenstein the clear difference of the types of care given by women and the absence of care provided by the male characters argues for
The virus in Contagion was similar to Yellow Fever; it caused mass destruction and panic. Neither disease showed mercy. Frightened of the disease, people moved in fear for their lives.
