Ray alleges “In contrast to outlaw heroes, the official heroes preeminently worldly, comfortable in society, and willing to undertake even those public duties demanding personal sacrifice.” (380).

While her mom and friends want her to focus on becoming a wife. Skeeter becomes alienated due to her choices of not being married, and because of how her perspective on the division between white Southern households and black maids has changed due to being in the city and going to college.
Hollywood is famous for its ability to make money. Simply recalling the history cannot help Hollywood to gain that amount of money because of audiences’ taste.

Hollywood has always done a terrible job of depicting real women in film, and although his work has a somewhat misogynistic reputation, Alfred Hitchcock has done so much involving the progression of female roles in Hollywood cinema. Although many of his female victims wind up dead, the survivors have lots of power – and without reliance on their male counterparts. Women remain the central focus in many of Hitchcock’s films, not just because of their beauty, but because the narrative is dependent on them. When you look at his work in the context of this specific Hollywood era, Hitchcock’s female characters are very much out of the ordinary. Looking past the obvious presence of gender roles (male and female) that just so happened to be a part of the social norm during that time, Hitchcock sought to represent women with having more depth, realism, and independence than ever before in women in Hollywood.

Realism If the Renaissance did not accurately portray real life, then Realism certainly did. Realist artists derived their inspiration from real life. However, it was not the real lives of the wealthy and well-to-do families but the lives of real, middle to low class people that these artists cared to paint.

Two painting exemplify this period: "Snap the Whip" by Winslow Homer and "The Sower" by Jean-Francois Millet.

According to Christie, parties become uneasy with handling their own social conflicts where they know there are professionals present who they believe can do a better job. Lawyers also decide what is relevant in court, rather than letting parties decide what they believe to be relevant. Because of this, victims lose participation in their own case. Christie also discusses the types of segmentation and their effects on modern law. I agree with Christie’s views of modern law in regards to reduced participation of parties, the presence of too many specialists, and his view on segmentation.

To other people that might compare the two nations, they might say that The Communist Manifesto is more realistic our time in a society where people usually take advantage of one another, even if that means stepping on them to obtain success, than a nation called utopia that contain many unrealistic laws and plans.
