Tanya The person I researched was Mary Whiton Calkins she was one of the 1st generation of women to enter into the study of pyschology. She was denied her PHD because of her gender although she was a highly respected Doctorial student. Her numerous contributions to society included the invention of the paired-associate technique for studying memory, groundbreaking research on dreams, and the development of a form of self-psychology. "Furthermore, she became the first female president of both the American Psychological Association and the American Philosophical Association. In her later years, Calkins was a supporter of the Consumers1 League and the Civil Liberties Union."
It’s Me, Margaret would feel pretty life-changing to young girl growing up, unable to talk about the challenges of puberty and worries of getting your first period. (It’s odd to think how disputed this was in the 1980s, when it became a ‘banned book’). It’s incredible to discover a book where the main character is going through something you’re going through, something that you couldn’t talk to other people about. I only had teen magazines! It reminded me of all the things I used to worry about as a 11 to 14-year-old and how the worrying doesn’t stop, but the things you’re worrying about just change.
Murder on the streets brings panic, and panic brings chaos. Nafisi mentions in “From Reading Lolita in Tehran” that she was worried for her student, Sanaz, because she might not change her gesture and gait after class, she might also walk too proudly with her head held high, or that the “Blood of God” might think that she wears her veil inappropriately.

Oskar was a law student that she met in college. Shortly after being married Karen gave birth to her first daughter.
When analysing a poem of Plath's one may automatically associate it with depression, melancholy etc. even before reading the piece itself and fairly so. Mental illness was a major part of her adolescent and adult life and is clearly present in many of her writings. When first going over Morning Song, it is surprising to find nothing lachrymose or dark about this piece. Instead we are given a rare insight into Plath's mind of being a first time mother, something she never thought that she would be.
Despite communicating only sporadically between 1959 and Plath's suicide, both women were definitively influenced by their brief friendship, showing in their respective works. I think personal feelings about things like death, trauma, suicide and relationships began to be dealt with in poems would be very difficult to write about. It really made me think as I read the poems the two women had written and to know how they both choice to end their lives. I know that my life is not perfect, and I get upset with others from time to time but I also know that God only give me as much as I can handle at a

They are also known as "unteachables" and not the eager-for-college students she was expecting. At first, it is very hard for her to be close to them. They even doubt her intention to teach them. However, she has her own style of teaching in which she finally earn their trust and encourage them to receive the knowledge. She get them to read a novel The Diary of Anne Frank and write about their own life experiences in daily journal.

Chopin’s Insight into the Future Kate Chopin’s works were unusual and admired pieces of literature before their time. This is because she grew up differently than other women. Her father died when she was young and she was surrounded by her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. These women were all widows and helped to instill independence into her life. Because of this independence Chopin wrote about topics that would not become issues until years later.
