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. She developed such a strong personality that she was able to climb the rungs of broadcasting very quickly, even though very few African American women up to that time had become a major factor in the media.
Parents would predetermine their childrens partners many years in advance. Many times the couple would not even know each other beforehand.

Charlotte's acceptance of Mr. Collins’ proposal is a prime example; “marriage had always been her object; it was the only honourable provision for well-educated young women of small fortune, and however uncertain of giving happiness, must be their pleasantest preservative from want” (p105)1. Austen makes use of Charlotte's character to illustrate the social norms for women of the time. Charlotte's reaction to Collins' proposal is cleverly juxtaposed with Elizabeth's own values and more romantic views on marriage, as she is offered his proposal first; “You could not make me happy, and I am convinced that I am the last woman in the world that could make you so”(p92)2.

Austen used this as a structural device to show the different perspectives of attitudes to marriage from Mary, Georgiana and Sophy. Ironically, Austen used the post script in the story to dedicate the story to her, she says although she is not yet old enough to marry she will one day be able to read it and use the advice. In the Georgian England society marriage was an expectation from women at a young age. This was generally because the man was expected to take a woman and keep her financially stable for their lifetime. Georgian England society was a formal society, men and women were always at tea parties during the day and balls at night.
However, her husband thinks that she is being too greedy for being a Prime Minister and sacrifices her family to the community. But, Margaret Thatcher is so ambitious that she doesn’t give up and becomes Prime Minister. Secondly, when “The Iron Lady” is being examined, it can be understood that everthing begins well at the begining.
