Domination of any kind was a barrio that she had broken down and that was not a struggle anymore. Reading “The Strength of MY Rebellion” has left behind an image of self-determination and braking free to become who you want instead of a standard set by cultural, society and even yourself. Many women and men are dominated by tradition; they have no voices no individual existence, breaking free is not an option since they don’t even understand how to be independent or what it feels like to be free. I remember, my mom telling me stories about my own culture, and how the man of the house was in total control of everyone in his quarters. Daily, men were sent to the farm and the
This shows the rich were proud and even took pleasure in the reputation and status they owned. Bayardo did not woo her directly but in fact he pleased Angela’s family. Angela did not even know Bayardo and felt no love for him but she was forced to marry him as her mother clearly told her ‘Love can be learned too’. This clearly brings out the psychological thinking and mind set of people. Women had no say in important matters and were considered inferior.
Edna also sees other men because she wants some attention and to feel loved. “Her marriage to Léonce Pontellier was purely an accident, in this respect resembling many other marriages which masquerade as the decrees of Fate.” On page 18 is a quote to show this. Edna’s selfish choices have caused her husband much grief. By doing what she wants to do, Edna is a strongly independent woman. Edna goes out and does whatever she wants.
As Leving and Sacks say “she’s far more critical of him than he is of her”, that means that men are much less critical than females who want to show their strength. But in many cases their thoughts are deceptive, as everybody needs a family to have happy life. Respond: I totally agree with the authors of the text and, in my opinion, the women’s desire to become independent and live by themselves is partly caused by our democratic world, where the equalty between genders is respected. Women build their own careers and become independent, so they do not need help from men at least financially. That’s why we have the tendency of growth of the amount of single women.
Ironically, unlike today’s first ladies, Betty was “thrust into the role of First Lady with no time for planning any goals or agenda.” In addition to the lack of agenda, Betty was extremely personable and candid with reporters and members of the media and always made sure that she spoke what was on her mind. Examples of this can be seen in her open discussion about the benefits of psychiatric treatment, marijuana use, and premarital sex. While these are regular topics of today, during the 1970’s, they were not only topics that were almost taboo, but they were topics that women didn’t openly discuss. Even though some people did view her honest attitude as refreshing, many conservatives felt that
Cyrano only expresses his frustration with the size of his nose when talking to Le Bret, his best friend. His insecurities make him much more human and relatable than his mask, ultimately making him realistic and not comically extraordinary at everything he does. Roxane has qualities of a very caring, independent woman with a weak point for the romantic. She continuously does things to remind men of her beauty, intelligence, and kind-hearted personality. She quickly
This made him more reliable as a candidate, because he has hard evidence, as opposed to Sarah Palin, who didn’t have many statistics at all. The lot of the ideas that Sarah Palin said didn’t have any analysis or elaboration. Another weakness was that she would talk about something that wasn’t necessary or stayed on a point for too long. But one thing about Sarah Palin that I didn’t like was how she used informal language a lot, like “say it ain’t so, Joe.” I think this hurt her professionalism a little bit. There was a lot of attacking on both sides on both parties and the attacks were both very strong, especially when it came to the war in Iraq and the energy crisis.
Mattie I believe was very spoiled by her father and sheltered as well. She did have a sense of the outside world as many young girls explore at a young age, she was not given that option. I think the reason for her doing what she did was because she was so sheltered and thought that she could make her own decisions but her own decisions got her mixed up in a situation leaving her basically alone to take care of her son. I believe that her father abandoned her because she went against him and made her own decisions. Etta was a character who did not settle down with a man, she was very free spirited.
What would Alice Paul and Snookie even talk about, would they become enemies or best of friends? Snookie in my opinion is weak minded and I think that Alice Paul who was an intelligent human being would probably convince Snookie to fight for women’s rights. Snookie is perceived as a drunken woman who has no respect for her body in more than one way would really discourage Alice Paul. Alice Paul would see that all of that pain and suffering she went through it all for nothing. Women still do not respect themselves especially since Snookie is so popular among viewers of television and other women want to be like Snookie.
