I Love Lucy Too In the classic show “I Love Lucy”, Lucy Ricardo was the title character that everyone adored. While she was a housewife and later, a mother, Lucy was also a humorous character that naively believed she would be in show business and become a star. This plot device was used to show women, in a comical way, that they should stop having ambitions and remain at home. Lucy is always getting into shenanigans, dragging her friends and husband into the mess as well, and the message the show sent was to avoid being like her. Though the show is well-loved and surprisingly modern for the time it aired, Lucy Ricardo is still seen as someone an everyday 1950’s housewife should not aspire to be.
1. Cater To You: Destiny Child – This song would have been well liked by Ophelia because of her submissive nature. Ophelia was always dutifully obedient and liked catering to her father needs and it seems that she will have been equally compliant as a wife. The lyrics on this song talk about being overly pleasing with a husband; “I Got Your Slippers, Your Dinner, Your Dessert, And So Much More. Anything You Want Just Let Me Cater To You” 2.
I love being a woman. I love the miracle of life that our bodies endure, the sexy way our hips curve, the cute way we blush and smile, oh wait, am I describing everything a man would? Maybe it is because we have grown and continue to grow in such a male dominated society. Don’t get me wrong, gender roles have predominately evolved but let’s get real about the princess society that our daughters, nieces, granddaughters and most young girls live through each day. I am not suggesting that Disney Princesses that we all know and love are wrong but what are they helping, other than the “Honey I’m home, where is my dinner” type of thinking?
Inspiration is the word I would use to show how I felt when reading Chinese Cinderella. All of these reasons I stated above, show how Adeline is not only inspiring to me and all of her readers, but she showed desire to overcome her hardships, and mold her future that she has now. She definitely kept her face towards the sunshine, and her shadows fell behind her. Adeline Yen-Mah shows persistence in the memoir, by continuing to fall down with everything, but then gets up even stronger in the
For example, Cinderella is described as being an “extraordinarily sweet, obedient, and gentle nature. She got this from her mother, who had been the nicest person in the world. The poor girl tolerated everything patiently, not brave enough to complain to her father” (Perrault, 67). This description describes the ideal bride for a man of these times because she not only was beautiful and kind, but also did not complain about having to do other’s work. This plot also reinforces the idea that outer beauty can attract the man and inner beauty to capture his
Out of all the people in the world who works hard, keeps every household together also the one who deserves more and beyond would of course be our mothers. As I introduce this particular book you will come to realize that a mother is an important spotlight in this book. Vera B. Williams is a phenomenal author and illustrator in the picture book A Chair for My Mother. Williams achieved a Caldecott Metal award for her great work. The characters in A Chair for My Mother are a daughter, a mother and a grandmother who save up coins for the mother that deserves all and more to get her a nice comfy yet the perfect beautiful chair in replace of her old chair that burned in their previous home.
This interaction implies that Dr. Rank believes that Nora possesses a greater emotional capacity and strength than Torvald. As such, he trusts her ability to handle the news in a mature and acceptable manner in contrast to the fragile sensitivities of Torvald. Nora is also aware of how her status as a doll-wife to Torvald makes her unsuited to be a capable, worthy mother for her children. Conscious of her shortcomings, Nora questions the nurse in charge of caring for the Helmer children during Act II. Nora alludes to the consequences of if "…they would forget their mother if she went away altogether" with the nurse, who had similarly left her own daughter behind (Ibsen 1378).
Eliza is what she has always wanted to be, and she can thank herself for it. Her determination and self confidence brings her to accomplish everything she has ever wanted. Intertextuality is shown throughout the resolution in Miss Congeniality because Gracie also becomes a better person and learns from the other contestants. She did not have intentions of gaining personal self-worth from this experience like Eliza did, but she ends up being “very honored, and moved, and truly touched.” Also, intertextuality through the resolution of Miss Congeniality is very obvious when Gracie speaks to Victor: “You’ll get yours, Henry Higgins.” This is a direct reference to Miss Eliza’s song towards Henry in My Fair Lady. Both Eliza and Gracie gain something memorable from the ending of the experiences they went through, and it is safe to say they both change for the
She could be free of the pain and continue her development as a woman through courage. Tea Cake may have been her final stage in the novel, but he sure wouldn’t be her last. He taught her what love and devotion was. And even though Janie had to be hurt by different personalities and individuals to find her identity, she overcame the curveballs thrown at her. Janie led herself to the most important accomplishment in her life, which was finding the strength, courage, and love within herself, in order to obtain her freedom and independent development as a woman.
Last month a girl I know was having a hard time. Lauren, without hesitation, told her to come over right away and carefully listened to her struggle as well as giving her priceless advice. She is such a good listener and a mature older sister. Not only did she listen to every single detail of the story, she also shared her opinion to the girl and told her about her personal heart-breaking story to deepen the bond. Moreover, she brought out ice cream and made brownies for the girl, because ice cream can compensate for negative emotions.
