And then she haul off and kiss me on the mouth (Walker, 1982).¨ In the movie however it doesn't show how close the girls become, and how strong their bond is. One of the main points Shug´s character puts across is how she teaches Celie about herself, like the reader could see Nettie trying to do in the beginning of the story. In the book one of the most important things celie is able to do is stand up for herself, she is able to do this with the guidance and support given to her by shug. In the movie one can only assume Celie finds her strength over time given all the abuse she endures in her childhood, and
However, by the end of the novel, she is considerate of others, still pushes for her beliefs in a more polite and educated manner, and embraces the fact experiences have value. Different experiences such as the hanging and Roger’s death teach the horrors of society, her mother and the Jewish lady teach Catherine how to be herself, and animals like the ant and the bear teach her how the little things could be huge to others. One experience that leads Catherine to discover the need for change is her lack of both sense and direction. She often speculates about all she will do when she grows up. “I am no minstrel or wart charmer, but me”(Cushman
Her only real pastime is watching shows like “ugly-d to teen queen”; to learn about the latest cosmetic surgeries which she then pester her parents to obtain for her. Although Taylor is a main character, she is incredibly unlikable and her personality is designed to allow for slight character development and it can be used used by Claire Carmichael to cover the many plot Holes of her story. Said character development includes becoming slightly less spoiled and Barrett Barrett is quite a poorly developed character. Barrett is polite and a rule follower to the extreme and he never does anything wrong until the very end of the book, where he shows a hint of rebellion. As a reader I found Barrett a more engaging and likeable character than Taylor.
The conflict develops to where Stargirl attempts to act like everyone else does to save their relationship. The character she creates to act as a conformist, Susan, is average in virtually every way.

It also represents Anne’s positivity on a larger scale, as she says that the Annex is not a very ideal place to live, but a very ideal place to hide. In the article titled, Anne Frank, Anne is described as, “Anne is lively, a joker, and has lots of friends before she goes into hiding”(Anne Frank House). This shows how Anne has always had a positive attitude and is very sociable with others, these skills are put to good use during her time in the Annex because she had others to work with and be around. These positive traits of Anne might be bad for being in hiding as she is said to be a joker which might not go over well with the others. In Anne Frank Remembered:The Story of the Woman Who Helped to Hide the Frank Family, The author states that, “Order was slowly being made in the hiding place.
Though she dresses her daughter is extravagant clothing, for herself she dresses in in text about what she wears. Hester undergoes a transformation in the story, that emphasized how society had impacted her, and perhaps to have the constant reminder of truth, another theme of the story. Again, she lives the simple life of a transcendentalist who does not take more than what is necessary. Hester Prynne is a transcendentalist because she demonstrates the qualities non-conformity, self-reliance, and simplicity throughout the book.

Working as an aid at the United Nation, Emily represents a socially empowered woman showing off her expertise and satisfaction with career. In contrast to Margo who is a socialist supportive to Tony, Emily appears independent with her own job and more freedom at first. However, as the story goes forward, the film reveals different sides of Emily. For example, in a scene where she obediently accepts Steven’s advice to wear a red dress instead of a black one, audience can clearly recognize that she is far from the passionate Emily seen in the opening love scene or in the later office scene. With Steven following her into the closet and the images of doors repeatedly passing the screen, Emily keeps distance from Steven but cannot be totally free from him.

In the beginning of the movie of Mean Girls, Regina is known as the leader of the school and all the girls want to be her. Every person in the school knows who she is, and everybody is always talking about her.
Our amplified sense of self importance dictates the way we view others and causes us to forget that everyone views themselves and their existence in the same heightened esteem and makes us think of everyone around us as secondary characters to our own story, rather than the fleshed out main character of their own. Social lines and status, visual and cultural associations, and our own personal experiences, all affect the way we view others and how others view us. When considering social lines and status in this text, there is a clear divide between one group of girls, and another standing off to the side by herself, isolated. The trope of a ‘popular mean girl clique’ exists not only in fiction but is an all too real experience many people are
