This example also shows that the girl was not a problem, and she became a solution. Wudunn insisted that if women and girls got out of the vicious cycle, and they could enter into a virtuous cycle. I think that Wudunn should share her good examples of women and girls in the remote areas because their successful lives are evidence of the donation that someone donated. Although some people donate some money, they could not see how their money leads to improve people of the poverty in the remote areas, so I think that Wudunn’s social media activities are important for not only those women and girls in the remote areas but also people in the developed countries to know about

The similarities these two stories share is, they both have female protagonist who are married and dealing with emotional states of their lives- Mary is pregnant and Mrs. Mallard has heart trouble.

In “O Pioneers!” by Willa Cather it is easy to see how similar Cather is to her own character Alexandra Bergson, who many of Cather’s own views can be learned through. Throughout the story there are many examples of realistic, romantic, and naturalistic thinking. Realistic thinking may not be represented the most by in “O Pioneers!”, but I believe Cather leaned toward it a little more than the other types of thinking. She had a realistic view of a woman’s place in society and refused to just be a housewife. By doing so she lead the way for many female writers and encouraged them to write and make a name for themselves.
Much like in Romeo and Juliet, an arranged marriage can be seen when Lord Capulet decides that Juliet should marry Count Paris regardless of the fact that she doesn’t like him and is already married to her one and only true love Romeo. Most of the time the father is seen choosing for his daughter. This is still seen today in some cultures where the young girl is forced to be married to a person she has never met. The child can be married at the age of 15 or higher. Arranged marriages by parents shouldn’t be allowed because it increases the risk of suicide, it determines if a person must move back to the country where their parents live, and it causes depression in women.
He proves himself a progressive thinking and innovative individual in the face of our nation’s serious atrocities against people of color. Evidence to these accusations against his character is scarce, save for his forward nature in letters to his supposed one night stand. There are many letters that show his indulgent and immoderately charming nature and one should observe his forward behavior in conjunction with his high regard for women and their education. He often made a case for women’s deserved right to education and even made comments in his provocative letter his young friend seeking a mistress. In one of his reasons for the selection of an old mistress is because they are wiser and, “their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreeable.” While this statement isn’t in any way justifying his grossly detailed

Mrs. Stowe and her novel were highly influenced by feminism. She thought in the part of social salvation, men and their social structure were useless to change the slavery or other guilty part of the society. However, women has the absolute advantage on it. Women are kind, peaceful, pious and caritative. Mrs. Stowe utilized these characteristics and
