Lisa also showed poor behavioral control and impulsive behavior. Her rage makes most people in the ward scared of her, they don’t want to make her mad so they will act as a friend to her or do certain things for her such as light her cigarettes. Lisa has controlling relationships with other people, and will kick and scream at the nurses. She also was very manipulative and conning. For example, she told Daisy another patient that she would rat her out if she didn’t give up her valium pills.
There is an illustration of a demonstration in which women are being beaten with clubs and stabbed for not wearing their veils. Women wore the veil for two main reasons: 1. their husbands/fathers/brothers forced them to wear it and 2. They were afraid of the outcomes of not wearing a veil. Some women supported wearing the veil because they shared the fundamentalist view. Satrapi shows her opposition by portraying these women with eyes
Aunty Jean is significant in communicating to the reader how negative Martyn’s view of authority figures is, because using his interaction with her as source material the reader can see his mistrust and hatred of Aunty Jean, therefore it is clear that Martyn views Aunty Jean in a very negative way: ‘Thought of Aunty Jean made my stomach turn.’ The verb ‘turn’ describes Martyn’s uneasiness and the fact that he feels physically unwell at the thought of having to live with Aunty Jean. We the reader are able to deduce from this, just how much Martyn’s opinion of her has been negatively impacted by his father’s views. Martyn has no reason to suspect that Aunty Jean would be cruel to him or that she would be worse to live with, all of his hatred and wariness about her stems directly from his father’s own opinion and what he has heard his father say about her. Therefore Aunty Jean is central to the reader’s understanding of Martyn’s immature outlook on adult figures, and how much living with an alcoholic father has shaped his view of authority figures. Brooks also presents her through Martyn’s perspective as evil and sub-humanly disgusted, the thought of her makes him feel physically ill, in order to show how much Martyn needs her to prove his assumptions wrong so that he can grow up and mature.
Instead of using a regular “okay”, Vernon inserts an “OK” to show her sarcastic anger towards one of her colleagues who disagrees with her opinion. You can tell she is immediately annoyed with peoples lack of respect of her opinion. With the emotion she is trying to get him to agree or even just compromise with the fact she wants nothing to do with having a child. By using such a strong emotion like anger she is adding passion to the argument; angry words like scold, attacks, selfless and deconstructed add fuel to the passage by giving the readers a feeling to have instead of just being neutral and it helps the readers gain an emotional tie and move over to “her side”. Having the readers believe she has a right to her own opinion right of the bat gives the author, Vernon, an upper-hand moving on to the rest of the article.
This is the part of the story that I disliked. I noticed that women in "Candide" were often terrorized and sexually abused. This made it difficult for me to get to know the female characters especially when compared to the male characters. Between Cunegonde, the old woman, and Paquette, it made it quite obvious for me to sense the dislike of women within the text. This made me question the reasoning behind why Voltaire might have chosen to depict women in this manner.
Like many women in the story, Nurse Ratchet is portrayed as a terrifying character who aims to threaten and manipulate others. Much of the suffering endured by the men in the ward is a direct result of Nurse Ratchets’s evil. One aspect of Nurse Ratchet’s personality is that she has no qualms with being dishonest or deceiving, as long as it helps her to establish control. For example, when McMurphy begins to gain influence in the ward, Nurse Ratched attempts to spread the idea that he is manipulative and selfish. In reality, Nurse Ratched is this way herself, as she blatantly manipulates the patients in order to establish conformity and secure her sense of dominance in the ward.
The Puritans view this letter as a symbol of the adultery. The letter also put Hester through torture: "Of an impulse and passionate nature. She had fortified herself to encounter the stings and venomous stabs of public contumely wreaking itself in every variety of insult but there was a quality so much more terrible in the solemn mood of popular mind, that she longed rather to behold all those rigid countenances contorted with scornful merriment and herself the object"(54). This implies that Hester's sin of bearing a child without the presence of a husband will always be remembered. In the middle of the novel is a transition period where the letter "A" is viewed differently than before.

Kyle Meehan Movie project Mommie Dearest Joan Crawford: Joan Crawford’s character as described in Mommie Dearest by her daughter Christina obviously depicts a deeply disturbed psyche that influences her life in a multitude of negative ways. She appears to suffer from a high functioning form of OCD, always obsessing that things be immaculate, clean, and orderly and that she has control of every situation. When her obsessions are not satisfied she bursts into a fit of rage as seen in the “wire hanger” scene in which she beats her own daughter mercilessly for nearly nothing. Her extreme obsessions also stem from a tremendous narcissism, always insisting to be the best and going to great lengths to preserve her image in others eyes as well as her own. Her unhealthy self-love can be seen in her relationships in which she uses sex to control men and always appears to have a hand on them, especially turning to sex when the man gains any sort of will or power to insult or leave her.
