1A. Ketchum feels very strongly against contracted motherhood for a number of reasons. She believes that contracted motherhood turns both women and children into property. Another complaint is that men are allowed to control the birth mother in various way. Also, women in under this contract are legally required to give up the children they bear, unlike in the case of adoption.
As where in “Unpopular Opinion: Marriage Will Never Be a Feminist Choice” the author Meghan Murphy is all about women not getting married and going out and living the single life. Murphy has a strong belief that marriage isn’t needed or right. Murphy strongly believes that marrying is pointless. To Murphy marriage has no real value or benefit. When she can just live a single life or just be in a regular relationship.
The third group is divided and labeled as irresponsible and reckless because they do not have any knowledge of birth control and they do not exercise it. These people do not control the size of their families, and they just have children even if they don’t plan on having them, and that is why Margaret Sanger want her audience to have knowledge of birth control, so they can control the size of their families, and so they won’t just have children whenever they don’t take care of themselves. Where they might end up giving these children up, or where these children might end up suffering, or where women just end up having abortions, and these are some reasons why Margaret Sanger opened up a clinic to help people to plan
The use of this rhetorical device (logos) helped Johnson force the mother to admit there was no reason why he should write the letter. He states “You ask me to solicit a great man, to whom I never spoke of, for a young person whom I never seen”. Johnson tone shifts and becomes harsher allowing room for the mother to think about her faults. Johnson feels that the evident faith the mother has for her son is not enough for him to recommend her son into the university. He then goes on to simply tell her that there is no accurate reason why her son deserves this position.
Which possibly could have turned the entire case around she chose to stay quiet and comply with what everyone was telling her. Mayella was was just a poor girl who had never been to school a day in her life and suffered so much abuse from her father, she didn’t give herself the opportunity to be powerful. In a time of oppression and depression Mayella standing up would have been a monumental change but she never seized it and took advantage, she let everyone else take advantage of
While Dewey Dell and Cora follow societal standards since Dewey Dell allows men to control her and Cora takes on her assumed role as caretaker of her husband and children; Addie Bundren defies patriarchal ideals by maintaining her own desires and confirming that motherhood and wifehood are not fulfilling. Truly, female attitudes towards the principles of a male dominating society differ within As I Lay Dying, which demonstrates how although manipulation can be employed to restrict the freedoms of people within cultures, there will always be admirable people who defy societal
Despite placing the blame for this situation on Lysander, saying that it was with cunning that he "flinch'd my daughter's heart, turn'd her obedience...to stubborn harshness"(line 37,38) and that he "bewitched the bosom of my child" (line 28), Egeus does not suggest that any punishment should be put forth for Lysander for interfering with the planned marriage. This could be that because Lysander is not part of Egeus' family, Egeus does not have control over Lysander; it could also be that Egeus believes that a truly obedient daughter would follow her father's command regardless of any other person's
Within the book, there are instances which state that women can’t/won’t do a certain task/thing because of reason/excuse. One example of this is when Scout asked Atticus, the Finch’s father, about why people in Maycomb couldn’t sit in the jury stand and mentioned Miss Maudie, a gentle woman who never lets others forget her thorns, Atticus replied, “For one thing, Miss Maudie can't serve on a jury because she's a woman-" (188). He says the reason for this is, “I guess it's to protect our frail ladies from sordid cases like Tom's. "(188) and also that he, “...doubt(s) if we'd ever get a complete case tried—the ladies'd be interrupting to ask questions."(188). Atticus is saying that the reason why they can’t be in the jury is because they need to ‘protect them’ and that they just slow down the entire trial process.
Janie`s feminism is visible also through her strong sense of individualism. Her story presented in the novel is often considered “as a vehicle of feminist protest through its condemnation of the restrictiveness of bourgeois marriage and through its exploration of intraracial sexism and male violence” (Jordan, 1988). Her struggle in which she wants to free herself from her grandmother`s influence is presented as a gradual process. In her first marriage, she is not strong enough to decide for herself. More importantly, Janie gets married for the first time because her grandmother wants her to do so.
The ignorant people of Maycomb don’t approve of Atticus allowing her to wear masculine clothing and play in the mud with her brother. Her aunt, being of the stubborn population, attempts to control what Scout wears. “Aunt Alexandra was fanatical on the subject of my attire. I could not possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches; when I said I could do nothing in a dress, she said I wasn’t supposed to be doing things that require pants” (Lee 108). This blatant oppression, rude as it may be, is still ineffective on the free-spirited Scout, allowing her to break the confines of society.
