She didn’t continue to say well maybe she was wrong or it’s just a phase that they grow through. She just ends it. Orenstein confused her readers and showed that princesses weren’t never really a problem, because throughout the entire article she contradicts herself about it. She blamed Mooney and all of these other things for what was changing the way her daughter and Americas younger generation think and act, but in the end of it all her daughter still says she wants to be a

She did not find that a marriage service generated love; she did not enable her husband to recapture his youth through hers; nor could she compensate for that by running his home in the manner of an experienced housekeeper.” This quote illustrates that Elias Strorm was very cruel to her that she died after her second child was born. She was a beautiful, young woman who Elias turned into a very dull person. She always wanted him to be happy and be a good person, but that did not happen, he was just unfair and unpleasant to everyone.

Nora’s husband Torvald is for the most part a husband most would be proud of, a hard worker; he cares for his family and provides a wonderful home and finer things.
