Furthermore, this would lead to a lot of people expecting more from relationships after getting divorced, as they wouldn't want to fall victim to what cause their last marriage to end again. This is part of the high expectations people now expect from relationships. Young people may have experienced divorce or bad relationships in their life, so they do not want to fall into it themselves, making them wary of marriage. Sue Sharpe's study in the early 1970s showed that young girl's main concerns were 'love, marriage, husbands, children, jobs' in that order. When she then returned in the 90s she found that the list had flipped, with jobs and careers being in first place.
Pizan so obviously from the start of her writing, introduces how women should behave (from the perspective of a princess), so that her actions shall be beneficial to her and her husband. By talking about the finances, which is radical, Pizan degrades women in all other aspects. Degrading is used in the sense that she does not promote equality in any other way other than the financial aspect. These women could be considered early feminists if they looked for equality in other things as well not just a specific
In the time of Gilead, the women were taken from their homes where they were brainwashed by speeches from their “Aunts” who argued that “such a social order ultimately offers the women more respect and safety then the old, pre-Gilead society offered them” (Sparknotes). In their new age, they’re simply used to run errands and bear children in the homes of Commanders that have trouble conceiving with their wives. They are fed small bits of information on what is going on in the Republic and are expected to be content with just that. Offred spends a great amount time thinking of her old life with her husband, Luke, and their young daughter. Then, one night her Commander asks to see her privately where they play Scrabble (which is illegal because in Gilead, women are not allowed to read) and she is allowed to look at old magazines; to conclude these secret encounters, the Commander asks Offred to kiss him.

After my interactions with my employers, l realized that instead of castigating others for their actions, people should actually desire to know about things they have limited knowledge of. My bosses usually ask me about my family and my siblings and l equally ask them questions about their relationship with society and their desires. l realized that even though l came from heterosexual parents, this should not serve as a factor in my relations with people that possess a different family organization . I had the same realization about the importance of tolerance as the woman in the paper which was why she said” Dad and l think our way is best for our family. Sam’s moms probably think their way is best for their family” form the paper further illustrates this
She tells her father, and they come up with a compromise. She will be able to read at home, but not so much in her class. This compromise is apart of her learning to be mature.

I did not understand how different my family was until I started attending school. My parents separated when I was very young, almost too young to remember, so my older sisters were left to raise me and do everything parents are supposed to do. It was very clear that not everyone was being raised by their sisters. It was embarrassing to have parents get a divorce especially because it went against the Catholic religion. In school my friend’s parents came together to parent conferences.
