In The Awakening by Kate Chopin, the main character Edna has a fascination with the sea that is never satiated. In the outset of her life she is mystified by it because she is unable to swim. To Edna, the sea represents the ultimate place for solitude and contemplation; the sea invites “the soul to wander for a spell of abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation.” (13). When she finally learns to swim she pushes herself to go farther and farther, where no woman has ever gone before. The progression of Edna skill in the water also closely correlates with her mental awakening.
After his mother dies he states that he never visited her, “…because it took up my Sunday- not to mention the trouble of getting to the bus, buying tickets, and spending two hours traveling”(5). He wasn’t even willing to go she his mother when she was in a rest home. He tries to excuse himself by blaming it on technicalities. However, no Sunday is as important as bonding with an aging mother. He obviously was never close to her, due to his lack of wanting to visit her.
Both men tried to turn Janie into what they believed was the ideal women, but they never loved Janie for who she was. She was never able to take control over these situations and comes to grip with her individuality. She was pressured to make decision based off what other people thought and not what she truly felt. This never really becomes evident to the reader until the hurricane and Janie’s new found
Sirena was never to return home again and bid her farewell to her loved ones and swam off, while her mother waited for her return and stayed regretful for the curse could no longer be undone. It is said that the only way she could be caught with human hair. On the other hand the legend about the women who saved the island was more about the war with power against society rather than a fight within family. As I said earlier women since the ancient
Good Country People In Flannery O’Connor’s short story “Good Country People “, the relationship between Hulga/Joy and Mrs. Hopewell is not a good mother and daughter relationship. both could not see themselves as who they really are. Mrs. Hopewell lives in a world of clichés and mottos which she believes as truth and hope with simplicity. Meanwhile Hulga/Joy who is very anti-social and has a cynical attitude toward people believes that her mother is too simple-minded. Both fail to recognize and see each other for who they really are.
I assume that she wants a divorce from her husband but because of the role that society has placed on her, but she is unable to get one because she is very dependent on him. It sounds to me that she is jealous of her male friend who is looking for another wife. It was him and his situation that she was thinking of that brought her to the conclusion that she herself wants a wife. Her situation leads me to believe that during this time in history women were not meant to show signs of aggression, jealousy, or anger because it was a mans world. In Brady’s eyes a wife is a basically a slave at home who cannot have a life of her own.
There was a Pakistani girl named Malala Yousafzai who got hurt for saying that women deserve an education in her country. She didn’t care if that’s what her society thought to be acceptable, she knew it wasn’t right and so she rebelled against the whole idea of it. She survived her injuries, and now she protests for women to have a better education. There are a lot of women all over the world just like her that rebel against society’s view of women. In the story, the Awakening, Edna also rebelled against society by freely expressing herself.

In “Never Marry a Mexican,” Clemencia is strong and settle on not being with a Mexican; she says she will never marry any man (68).
After first being separated from Psyche then becoming bitter from not seeing the same things as Psyche once reunited, I realized the tragedy was that not only did Orual never found the “love of the Gods,” she also never learned to love her life and accept herself as the person she was. While she is described by her subjects as "the most wise, just, valiant, fortunate and merciful" of all rulers, Orual feels that her actions are only a mask of her inner ugliness. She despairs of ever overcoming her hideousness inside. She says, "I would set out boldly each morning to be just and calm and wise in all my thoughts and acts, but before
Womens suffrage synthesis paper. Women have always been under suffrage from the superior male empowerment. they endure depression of rights such as voting and freedom of speech, the thought of women having such straightforward authority to do the bare bone basic in nationalistic movement of voting and cary an impact on our developed country is profound even today in the eyes of a man. people in general can ignore womens suffrage all they desire but it is sure to catch up to any who oppose it, the accusation that women ask to much of the present society almost as if they want more then they need, all together the men have stronger thought towards why women need to be relieved of there freedom.
