Especially, the new flag should remove the Union Jack from the canton and to introduce a completely new design which is without the Southern Cross.

They began to take up jobs that would be considered unsuitable for women before 1914, such as working in munitions factories and other war industries. Many women volunteered to work overseas as nurses or ambulance drivers. They also drove buses, streetcars, and worked on police forces and civil service jobs. They were also needed for agriculture.

For many of the women the war was ‘a genuinely liberating experience’ (first world war, accessed 07/01/09), and made the women feel useful as citizens. Also for some women it gave them the freedom that only men had enjoyed so far and ‘offered escape from jobs of badly paid drudgery’ (war and gender, accessed 22/01/09).

Oprah brings her heart and soul into everything she is doing. Oprah is always willing to try new things and be creative. Oprah preaches self-empowerment but she also exemplifies and radiates it herself. It was her self-empowering attitude that made her emerge from a frequently abusive and bleak looking upbringing to become one of the most influential people in the world.

Unlike Greek plays, where main characters were kings and nobles for they were thought to embody the whole community, modern tragedies present an average leader of a family, neither completely good nor completely evil, whose mistake leads to his self-destruction. Joe is a role model to his neighbourhood for he is a hard-working, decent man; it is easy to feel identified with him.
