Nancy Fraser captures this sentiment in her argument on recognition and redistribution (Rai, 1999:87). While quotas increase the representation of women, it is mainly elite women who have access to the political system, which does not directly translate into policies that address the needs of poor women. Although quotas can overcome barriers to “equality of opportunity,” the relationship between women’s increased representation and the pursuit of gender equitable public policy is not always linear. As Fraser has articulated, women’s struggles for justice thus encompass both struggles for recognition as well as for redistribution (Rai, 1999: 87).

Lily realizes this is her fatal flaw and confesses to Gerty Farish after sinking into poverty saying, “‘I was never meant to be good.’” (Wharton 216). It this context, good means to be wealthy and part of the elite circle. She cannot constrain herself to the artificial behavior of those part of it.
The tragic story of Justine Sacco, who was fired from her job and ridiculed by the public after posting a racist joke online, demonstrates the disparity between crime and resulting punishment. Similar to Puritan punishments, public ignominy as a consequence for failings of the character is too severe a punishment. These events demonstrate that, as a modern society, America has still not evolved from appointing vigilante-like retribution upon those who seem worthy of such
As shown by Offred 's statement: "We aren 't supposed to form friendships, loyalties, among one another" (Atwood 353), people were expected to not create new relationships.
