Something that the men only brushed off as a joke when the women brought it up. The oppression of women was not at the top of the list in everyday conversation because people did not think it was something that was an everyday occurrence, however, Susan Glaspell changed this when she wrote her short play Trifles. The female characters stand up for Mrs. Wright and defend her from the scrutinizing remarks of their husbands and hide her dead bird that could have been used against her as a motivation in her trial for the murder of her husband. Susan Glaspell uses Trifles, a realist piece, to shows women 's oppression in everyday life, her text is very influential to the women 's movement by showing women they need to unite and stand up for one another. Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters are two everyday house wives during the early 1900 's but they do something very special and controversial.
She was just a kid with a different skin color. People treated her like the scum of the earth because of the color of her skin. She came back to America in her later years. She had gone to get a cup of coffee but was refused because she was black, and she would not stand for this. After the store retaliated, she described this as, “…so then they thought they could smear me, and the best way to that was to call me a Communist” (Baker 51-52).
When Lily meets Zach, she is surprised that she falls in love with him, because she is always use to thinking that black people are not attractive. She says “if he was shocked over me being white, I was shocked over him being handsome” (Kidd 116). Lily, in turn, supports Zach on the way to become a lawyer, even though it would be a difficult time for black people to achieve this career in the southern area. Everything Zach does for he wants to create the word to be okay to marry with a white girl. He says “we can’t think of changing our skin, change the word
The short story "Too many Tamales" by Gary Soto describes the story of a girl who wants to wear her mom 's ring but thinks that it got dropped into the tamales, but her mom actually wore it the whole time. Both stories tell kids that they should not keep secrets and tell the truth instead. The book "The Bloody Souvenir" tells kids that they should tell an adult/guardian immediately before something gets worse. In the story, the narrator did not want to tell his mom what happened about his wart, so he tried to hide it up. But it gets worse and the narrator still did not want to tell his mom.
Fairytales Name of Story-Giovannuzza the Fox URL- http://www.coyotes.org/kitsune/myths_italian.html Summary-The father died, and Joseph lived on in the cottage alone, selling the pears from the tree to provide for himself. But once the season for pears was over, it looked as though he would starve to death, since he was incapable of earning his bread any other way.

If you don’t know “To Kill a Mocking Bird” by Harper Lee, is a telling of age story, about a girl nicknamed “Scout” growing up, while slowly unlocking the secrets of her home town and the secrets of life. But before I digress any further, I believe that Tom Robinson had been dealt with an unfair trial in TKAM, which is largely due to the heavy amounts of bias within the jury, although he was allowed to hold a public trial. The root of unruly judgement is known as bias. For instance in Ch. 16, the jury had men dressed in the Cunningham’s formal wear, hinting that the men whom tried to kill the defendant Tom the night before, was in the jury.
Santana is Puerto Rican, African American, the former co-captain of the cheer squad; bisexual, middle class, high school graduate. When Santana was co-captain of the cheer squad, she was an absolute bitch to the rest of the student body. She would say nasty things to girls who looked at her the wrong way or didn’t look the way she thought feminine girls should look. By doing so, Santana defies the Emotional femininity theme as she is everything but comforting and caring. With being bisexual she is defying the rules of femininity as it is believed that women are supposed to only like men.
