Granted, she plays no part in the political activism, but she does so much to ensure the quality of life of her sisters’ families. On the verge of insanity, she pulls herself together and says aloud to herself, “Courage! It was the first time she had used that word to herself and understood exactly what it meant” (Pg 199). At this moment, she finally realizes that her courage consisted of staying strong for herself and her family instead of selfishly running away. She no longer puts herself down for what she thought was cowardice in not joining her more active sisters in a fight for a greater cause.
Her main desire is to obtain financial freedom and the materialistic things that come along with it. Early on in the story Lawrence makes clear to the readers that she has no emotional attachment to her children, “She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them”. (601) Even though she was blessed with a family she was incapable of showing them love. This shows to the readers that she desires wealth more than her children. To the external world she appeared to be a loving mother dedicated to her children, “she is such a good mother” “she adores her children”.
Recently I watched the film “An American Crime”, and it really affected me. This horrifying movie is a true story based on a 1960’s murder case in Indiana involving Sylvia and Jenny Lykins. At ages 15 and 16 these two sisters lived with Gertrude Baniszewski for $20 a week while their parents worked in the traveling circus. Gertrude was poor and already had six children of her own. Several events varying from late babysitting checks to rumors of Sylvia’s promiscuous sex life brought Gertrude to despise Sylvia and punish her.

She loses her reputation as the loyal wife when she is accused of being a 2 prostitute, when she was actually raped by Wu Tsing. She also loses her status of being the first wife of him. Because of this, An-mei’s mother was banned from her family’s house forever. “Your mother went to live in Tientsin, to hide her shame with Wu Tsing’s wealth. And three years later, she gave birth to a son, which Second Wife claimed as her own” (Tan 237).
Women who have killed their children have different motives than one another. The murder of children is both tragic and heinous and this often causes a massive amount of media attention. Sometimes when these women go on trial for the murder of their children it is hard to convince juries of their illnesses. The maternal filicide has become very common in today’s society. In this paper I will be discussing both postpartum syndrome and how it is when defending the women with theses illnesses in court.
It is very clear that the women in these articles take some sort of pride in being a single parent and they have to prove themselves to the world and all around them, including themselves that it is possible for them to live the life of a single parent without it all going wrong. The bad associations regarding single parenthood is definitely some of the things the women try to prove wrong. One of the positive views we are introduced to is that if a woman would like to have a child, she no longer have to wait for a man. She can visit the sperm bank and leave as a pregnant woman. The child will grow up without the chances of anyone leaving them, except if the mother dies of course.
