It’s the main reason why we Americans automatically stereotype Puerto Rican and Latin women; it’s all we have seen, in the movies, so we don’t really know what the Puerto Rican or Latin culture is really like. The other main point Cofer makes is that even though she had a hard time when she was growing up she still became successful and that any one can do the same. We just have to turn all the negative into a positive and keep on living. I liked this article and I strongly agree with it.

She is shown taking control in Act 1, Scene 1 when she is with Antonio. It is during the marriage scene and she says, “I did vow never to part with it, But to my second husband”. This could show Webster as a feminist because she is the one doing the chasing after Antonio and all of the work to get him to marry her, rather than him doing it, like the typical man would. She is also being very forward and confident and Webster has made her the most important person in the scene.
Women voice Speech transcript Good morning ladies and gentlemen, Being a woman in the society which men seems to have more advantages, and even though it has been a long history of feminism movement, today we can still see that women do not get the equal opportunities as men do. That is why it is very important to keep challenging the society on stereotype about women.

Despite the traditional roles of women, her characters often revolted against societal expectations. As a result, Chopin’s reputation was so badly damaged that her work was ignored for decades after her death.
