Beneatha first finds herself struggling with sexism as she dreams of becoming a doctor. Lisbeth Lipari, a journalist, writes on how A Raisin in the Sun comments on racism and classism, but fails to mention the obvious sexism laced throughout (Lipari 87). During this time, overwhelmingly, women held the position of “stay at home mom” rather than a powerful position such as a doctor, societies opinion leads her family to believe the same—she is not doctor material. Her family’s opposition displays itself after Beneatha wakes and greets her family. Walter, Beneatha’s brother, asks her how school is going, Beneatha responds, “Lovely.
If she is living such a hard life in Boston, the reader is left to ask why she would not want to leave, as there appears to be no good reason to stay. Hawthorne leaves this up for debate. Hawthorne's purpose in Chapter 5 is to
Lydia is determined to do whatever her mother tells her especially after Marilyn leaves the family. Lydia believes that it’s her and her brother Nath’s fault that Marilyn leaves. “It’s not your fault, her father had said, but Lydia knew it was. They’d something wrong, she and Nath; they’d made her angry somehow” (137). Marilyn leaves because she

When you think of children’s stories, do you ever think that some of them are sexist? Believe it or not, some children’s stories are sexist. When looking for things that indicate sexism, you may see one gender being left out, or not being treated equal to the other. In Georgia Guback’s children story, Luka’s Quilt, we meet a young girl from Hawaii named Luka, and her grandmother, who is also known as Tutu. In this story, we see the ups and downs of Luka and Tutu’s relationship as they work on a quilt together for Luka.
What happens to a dream deferred? What exactly would have to happen, for it to become a dream deferred? To understand theses questions; we would first have to look at factors that would influence the differing. We would have to look at factors such as: race, social class, personal income, and, finally, one 's identity. In Lorraine Hansberry 's play, A Raisin in the Sun; we watch the character, Beneatha, struggle with what society expects out of her, and what she expects out of her life.
For example, if one’s parents were not educated well, they will often not strive to educate their children. In Raisin in the Sun, a couple of the characters criticize Beneatha, a black woman, for ever wanting to go to college. First, her boyfriend George says, “Because this is stupid! I don’t go out with you to discuss the nature of “quiet desperation” or to heat all about your thoughts—because the world goes on regardless—” (Hansberry, 97) George was raised to not care about education.
Like, when Jay and his band members Kel and Cia went to watch Indigo Daze perform by bunking their classes, Cia’s mother decided to ground Cia, but for Jay nothing was as important as winning the band competition, he made a deal with Cia’s mother that they will clean her garage and in exchange she will allow Cia to practice for the band. We have only one passion and if we have more, then we would not be able to focus and will not be able to be expert in anything. When we focus on more than one thing than our mind gets diverted and therefore we could never be satisfied by ourselves. But on the other hand if we practice more than one thing than surely we gain more experience. We could have one passion and many interests.
Dewey Dell also gets pregnant without being married and is afraid of what her family will think of her, so she tries to secretly get an abortion before they find out. Abortions are also not accepted by society at this time. The economic standing of the southern farmers and religious views of the time play a part in Faulkner’s writing of this story. The modern film adaption of As I lay Dying by James Franco takes on the many challenges that making a movie on this unique novel brings.
Berry, in the Feminism, the Body, and the Machine, makes an argument about what he believes the feminist, who are against his paper about not needing a computer, are missing when they discuss marriage: “marriage as a state of mutual help, and the household as an economy.” I agree. In his article about the computer, Berry mentioned that his wife helped him to type up his ideas and gave him feedback, which frustrates feminist because they find this act to be exploitation without knowing all the details. Within all of their complaints, Berry noticed that all the feminists were frustrated that his wife was not being exploited, was not allowed to find her own employment outside of the home, and was being subservient to him.
Basically proving that Beneatha is against most of the males in her life, such as Walter and George in her life, in the situation of becoming a doctor. Walter doesn’t think the money was worth her medical school and George doesn’t believe that woman should become doctors just as same thought as Walter. This supporting my claim by showing that Beneatha is always determined or yelling at her family because they are not behind, and supporting her path to achieve the dreams she has for herself. In “Raisin in the Sun” the author conveys the theme that dreams morph who you are by developing key character’s identity. Two people that exemplify this are Beneatha and Walter are people who let their dreams shape who they are in the present.
If you so crazy ‘bout messing ‘round with sick people – then go be a nurse like other women – or just get married and be quiet...” (1.1. 346-348). He believes that his dreams of becoming a business are more important than Beneatha’s dream to become a doctor. Walter also exemplifies greed when he says, “No-- it was always money, Mama. We just didn 't know about it” (1.2. 339), revealing money is more important.

In the novel Fahrenheit 451 Mildred never seems to want to give her husband Guy any of her time or attention; she rather give it to her gadgets and entertainment. For example, Guy was trying to discuss his life crisis with his wife and she could not even be bothered to turn off the television “‘Will you turn the parlor off?’ he asked. ‘That’s my family.’ ‘Will you turn it off for a sick man?’
