Then my final story is “Mrs Chundle” a lonely, death lady who lives next to a parish and the vicar persuades her to go to church, although she is death. The vicar is horrified to discover that Mrs Chundle has bad breath and asks her not to come to church any more because of it. Life in Victorian times was very restricted because the women were not allowed to vote or visit public events, also they had to find a husband and were expected to dress well and look nice. The women in Victorian times were not very clever and were made to stay at home and learn how to nit and cook. Firstly we learn how Victorian society had double standards when considering behaviour of men and women.
The girls go to the chapel to discuss tactics to get their hands on the key. Massie makes Claire call her boyfriendCam Fisher so that they can go to his house and check for the key. Claire really wants to see Cam, but due to clashing events, Claire lies to Massie about Cam having his uncle over so that she can go see him on a later day. The Pretty Committee go to the required soccer practice to find an angry coach make them strip their "improved" uniforms and they have to wear towels. Kristen didn't wear the uniform so she didn't get in trouble, and Claire didn't go to the soccer practice because she had a meeting with her
Soon after, the mother hears the sound of a bomb explode and rushes out to make sure her child is ok. She goes to the church that is now “bits of glass and brick” and does not find her child, but finds her little girl’s shoe. The first thought that occurred when reading this poem was how dedicated even little children were to free their own people and how life was like in the sixties. The little girl wanted to march the streets of Birmingham instead of going out to play. The little girl had no fear even when her mother said there would be guns and jails, clubs and hoses, and dogs that were fierce and wild. She went on saying she wanted to make our country free.
Both plays feature women dominated by the men in their lives. Ophelia * Ophelia, once a lovely, vibrant girl, receives cruel and unjust treatment from Hamlet (her fiancé). His treatment of her eventually causes her insanity and subsequent suicide. Mrs. Wright * Wright from Trifles was once a pretty, cheerful young woman who enjoyed singing in the church choir and engaging in other social events. When she marries John Wright, he isolates her on their farm, refusing even to obtain a telephone and kills the one possession that is precious to her - her little singing bird.
Her broken heart from being betrayed makes her cruel. She now holds a grudge against all males. She even raises her beautiful daughter Estella to lure men in and then break their hearts. She stops all the clocks in Satis House at twenty minutes to nine, which was the moment when she first learned that Compeyson was gone. She still wears her faded wedding dress and only one shoe because when she learned of the betrayal, she hadn’t put the other on yet.
Eddie felt humiliated about where she was raised, she didn't want to be associated with the "scandals" that belonged to the shacks north of the creek. She believed that, since she grew up in the shacks, she was worth less than the next person. Edith was embarrassed by her drunken father, even though none of his actions were ever her fault. Her mother, a "hallelujah-shouting fool" who preached, but never actually went to church, was also a huge contributor to the way Eddie felt. With people tormenting her about her cousins who were teen moms, or her father who made a fool of his drunken self in public, the poor girl felt like nothing more than dirt, and she wanted to be thought of as flawless and beautiful.
What happened in the three previously named states was proof enough that a more permanent law needed to be passed. What better way to get a more permanent law, then to add an amendment to the constitution which all states must abide by. When the 1880s finally came around the Supreme Court struck down one reconstruction law after another that protected blacks from discrimination. Not even 3 years later things are already starting to go back wards in some
I arrived to this conclusion because the story describes how Elisa’s husband hardly ever showed any interest in her, and that she would never get any type of attention, so she felt for an stranger’s trap in the search for attention. 5. Why did she cry like an old woman? Because she felt like a beautiful woman again, but all of that was a game that an stranger had played on her in order for her to let him fix some pots in her garden. 6.
And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner' (Timothy 2:12-14). 'If they have any questions to ask, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings' (Corinthians 13:35). 'The women should keep quiet in the churches, for they are not authorized to speak, but should take a secondary and subordinate place, just as the Law also says' (Corinthians 14:34). These are each very clear examples of the restrictions of leading women in Christianity. While many churches continue to deny women certain human rights, it is very clear that without women, the Christian religion would be a vastly different community.
