If you don’t be brave and protect yourself from other people, no one else will. Trying to hold back while someone else is taunting you can be petrifying. The lyric “It’s time for me to take it” it best tells the listener what her song is about because it means that it’s time for her to take control and be more self-assuring of herself to let others know that she isn’t weak and that she won’t hide her true self from those who don’t accept her for being herself. Letting someone else define who you are is not how you should really be. Be the person you want to be and let others envy you for being a confident girl or
The reason that makes Brenda Maddox’s biography so absorbing and great is that she could take for granted a cultural sensitivity to issues of gender and ethnicity. For example, Maddox in her book talks about Franklin’s sexuality, which Sayre stayed away from doing. Sayre showed Franklin as not confronting either a life of sexuality with marriage or the dedicated life of a woman scientist. However, Maddox makes sure to explore the shades of grey. She describes Franklin’s sexual attraction to Jacques Mehring.

The answer to this could be found in “To My Dear and Loving Husband”. In the third and fourth line of the poem, she wrote “If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can.” (Bradstreet 120). By directly addressing women “compare with me, ye women” rather than addressing her husband, Bradstreet had avoided Hutchinson’s footsteps. Hutchinson was banished for directly provided spiritual advices to women. Despite all the years of teaching and advising women, the only written record of Hutchinson’s remains is “Trial and Interrogation of Anne Hutchinson (1637)” (The Social History of Crime and Punishment in America 2010).

Christina Williams makes an insightful argument that the role of identity overlays the feminist themes of the novel. Williams begins by arguing that Edna never lets herself break free of a man’s influence, nor does she ever let the idea of love go.

In the novel, Bronte explores the theme of love versus autonomy as well as the symbolic element of ‘fire versus ice’ through Rochester and St John. Jane realizes she would sacrifice her dignity and freedom by marrying Rochester, and in comparison she realizes that freedom would mean imprisonment by marrying St John as she would need to keep her emotions in check.

In contrast, the film shows no basis of contrast between St John and Rochester and consequently excludes Jane’s development as a human being as the film is solely focused on her affair with
