Miss Rebecca is a hero in my eyes because she went beyond her way to get the story told; she helped the family in any way possible, she risked her life, and she didn’t crack under pressure. First, every hero has to be exceedingly brave and Miss Rebecca shows she is a very brave woman. In the beginning of the novel when she first learns about the HeLa cells, she is very intrigued and wants to learn more. As Rebecca went through graduate school, she became fixated on the idea of someone telling Henrietta’s story. So, she got the idea of writing a biography about the cells, and the woman they came from.
“…she was hiding a basket with Pitty Sing, the cat, in it.” (O’Connor 368). The main thing I see that makes this character a misfit amongst her family is the fact that she is extremely cautious and her son is more reckless. Carter 2 She would not leave the cat at the house in fear that it might brush up against the stove and turn the gas on. “…she was afraid he might brush against one of the gas burners and accidentally asphyxiate himself.” (O’Connor 368). And if her son would have been that cautious he would have never went down a strange dirt road in search of a random house in the country.
Also, when Curley’s wife is talking to Lennie, Candy, and Crooks in Crooks bunk she states “I think I know where they all went even Curley”(37). Curley’s wife knows that her husband is unloyal to her when he goes with the workers to a cathouse. Because no other character in the novel shows jealousy and deceitful, Curley is a bad to be a good husband to his wife it makes her talk even with Lennie. Because Curley ignores his wife and does not let her talk to anybody, he takes part of the responsibility for his wife’s
Over the years women have fought long and hard to be able to obtain and maintain legal rights and privileges that the male gender is born into. Females were molded and primed to play the part as an obedient wife and mother with instruction that your thoughts and opinions are kept to yourself. The perseverance of brave women helped today’s generation of women such as myself have the same equal rights as that of men. With all things you must have a burning passion in the pit of your belly to want to advance and defeat the injustice of this world. In order to put laws into effect there must be a group of people who all agree that new laws should be implemented because of majority vote.

While in her mother’s eyes, she only supported her daughter and craved the absolute best for her child. Schwind-Pawlak presents this argument poorly due to her change of heart towards the end of the essay. She does not stick to her beginning argument which causes the opposition to lack stability.

In Kate Chopin’s The Awakening, Edna’s suicide allows her to escape the oppression of Creole culture. During the time period of the novel a woman was expected to remain submissive at all times. Society and her husband placed these expectations on a woman and she was expected to give her life to her family and do everything in her power to please them. Her children must be her utmost pride and joy and her husband must be the center of her universe, but for Edna this was not the case. Edna did not believe that one must give oneself up for the satisfaction of their family; she believed that every woman should be in control of the decisions she makes.
She tells him he is “green” “a coward”, and that he resembles the “poor cat” who wanted the fish but would not get its paws wet. Finally, she tells him that her own lack of pity would extend to murdering her own child as it suckled at her breast. With this one terrifying example, she confirms that “the milk of human kindness” is absent in her. The quote “From this time such I account thy love” This personal taunt hits Macbeth. It is unexpected because their relationship is so intense.
As a result, I think children are getting by with more and more. I've seen so many forums where parents are talking about their teens cursing them out and other ridiculous things.
