The Crucible Abigail was a corrupt, cynical, and dishonest character throughout the Salem witch trials. She accused innocent people of the community of Salem of being witches. Most of the time she did this in seek of revenge on the people, but other times she did it so that she wouldn’t get caught for lying. Abigail was not a very old character she was 14-18 years old and still single. She was out of a job after the proctors kicked her out, and was not trusted by anyone after the incident at the proctor's house.
The daughter “would come home from school…surrounded by cut up red velvet” (129). The red in the dress was also a symbol of hatred, the hatred of the red-dress-girl put on her mother “To leave us…I wish she would” (133). The red-dress-girl was so vulnerable to see all the love and hard work that went into making the dress “Me look like a golliwog… stuffed into red velvet” (133). The daughter showed no appreciation to her mother for making her the
The steward assumed she is weak because she is a girl. Another prove that I have stated before is when the archbishop called her not a respectable woman. He stated that as if a girl dress like a soldier is something bad and new. They did not expect these kinds of attire and behavior from women. Because of the odd things Joan does, she was punished by being killed and burned to death.
These components made themselves known throughout the play in various instances. For example, Abigail Williams was the charismatic leader that convinces the girls to lie about what occurs in the woods in order to protect herself. She compelled the group of girls to accuse others of witchcraft through fear tactics, fooling the other villages that she sees spirits, and that she served a God’s finger. Her actions ultimately led to mass hysteria and the death of many villagers in Salem. This charismatic leadership displayed by Abigail Williams led to deindividuation among the group of girls.
They are the worst sufferers in the family. The sufferings of women lead to the sufferings of their children as well. The disintegration of Ammu’s marriage has its repercussions and creates a void in the lives of the people of the next generation. Both Estha and Rahel grew up to be abnormal adolescents and Rahel is expelled from school three times for “moral depravity”, for smoking and for stealing her headmistress’s hair bun.

She grows into this girl who is rotten. She does not obey Islam, she begins to not obey her parents, and she causes trouble in her school. Marjane can be compared to spoiled milk. She starts off her life being good, but then over time becomes sinful and rotten. Satrapi demonstrates this idea of loss of innocence a lot throughout the book.
TSOH C1 "the slut is here!"

A mysterious girl with a fragile heart who hide so many thing from other peoples name Ell. all students start mocking and bashing her after the story that created by her own flesh blood, her own twin sister who is older than her by 2 minutes.
To be honest, I find this notion rather appalling and downright offensive. It perpetuates the idea that women can be objectified and removes all accountability from men. During the past year, there have been a lot of headlines of girls being sent home from school due to their wardrobe being deemed “too distracting”
Furthermore, Melinda criticizing her physical appearance is a sign of how she mainly criticized and changes her clothing or way of looking due to she had major physical damage of being raped making her don’t want to remember the “Melinda who was raped.” Also, this caused a huge emotional and physiological depression where she can’t stand alone; she needs to speak up. Lastly, the action of Melinda needing to put the mirror away just because she can’t bare herself is a sign of a deep depression because of the lack of confidence and battle between herself. This means Andy Evans sexually assaulting her was the reason for her depression at such a young
Red was making false accusations and telling their hall director that Anon was stealing her items (ranging from pencils to medication to money), along with telling the director that she demanded to be moved out of the room as soon as possible because she “felt unsafe being around Anon, given the (fake) circumstances)”. On top of the slander, Red was also verbally confronting Anon about the blatant dissatisfaction she had towards the rooming situation solely because Anon was black, by stating she “acted too ghetto and was just stupid like ‘the rest of them’, and that’s why she grew up poor”. Eventually, Red moved to another dorm on campus once a room opened up and there were no further racial conflicts with the new roommate that moved in with Anon. The theories/perspectives that we have covered in class that relate this slice of my social life is the, the pluralist perspective, the social Darwinist perspective, and the assimilation

The person in the Crucible, other than the Salem girls, that I believe caused the trials is Mrs. Putnam, Thomas Putnam 's wife. There are 3 reasons why I suspect of this, the first, is about her beloved seven children who unfortunately passed away. Mrs. Putnam blames a witch for causing the untimely death of her children, which leads to disastrous effects. The second reason is that she starts a witch hunt and creates the atmosphere of mistrust and doubt in Salem when she spreads rumors of witches. This causes the whole town to go wild and start pointing fingers at neighbors, enemies, and friends.
