Curley’s wife explained to Lennie about being lonely and how difficult it is on her. “’I get lonely… You can talk to people, but I talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad’” [Steinbeck 78]. Curley’s wife never has anyone to talk to; when she gets the chance she often ruins the mood. She did not want Lennie to hurt her, but Lennie is very unpredictable.
This is tied into the 1920s though the new morals and standards of young women that were coming to power in the 1920’s. As they were in the hotel, Gatsby springs up and says “She never loved you, do you hear? He cried. She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me” (137) Gatsby is telling of how Daisy Buchanan is no longer loyal to Tom and how she now wants him back because he has run into money.
Cassie has been trying to locate her, but had no luck. She also goes around with a lot of men; she really puts herself out there in the wrong ways. Aunt Cassie faces a huge challenge, when she is trying to let go of her past, let go MIA (her daughter), to move on. She tried to find MIA but didn’t succeed, so she finally just let her go. She did it for herself, not only because it is good for her well-being, might she have another baby on the way (as hints were thrown in the book).
Her unsuccessful and violent father moved the family many times, and her older brother was favored by her grandfathers’ will. By growing up in this type of household, she thought that marriage life was dangerous for women. As she grew older, events in the lives of her family and friends only strengthened her views that marriage was often hazardous for women (Miller par 3). This influential time of her life proved to be for the better: this pushed Mary toward self-educating and to write. In her novel, “Mary: A Fiction” (1788), a women dies from fever after she accepts the hopelessness of her life.
Hannah begs you to keep this confidential and not tell anyone especially her daughter, who she sees regularly, as her daughter will be very angry. Bi) How would you explain the term ‘confidentiality’ to Hannah? I would explain to Hannah that I do respect her wish to keep this information ‘confidential’, however due to the nature of the information she has divulged, I would have to inform management as she is putting herself at risk by throwing her medication away. This is not following her careplans and the medication has been prescribed to her for a reason and due to her regularly becoming ‘confused’ we cannot be sure that she is fully aware on what the medication is for. I would explain that we can keep certain things confidential such as opinions and beliefs but if information effects their received care or personal wellbeing/health then I have a duty of care to act upon this but only on a ‘needs to know’ basis.
At times she wanted to give up and accept the will of the regime, but her memories and her humanity wouldn't let her. Through the Night chapters, that the readers only perceive her, resisting Gilead’s ideology, which exposes her true self and her own values. It is her only escape from the strict regime. Offred is a mostly passive character, good-hearted but complacent. She inwardly resists the puritanical society, but is not courageous enough to untangle herself from the chains of marginalisation and inequality.
Many women probably did not even know how to write because their were neglected from their studies or were probably always to busy doing what ever their husbands wanted them to do. Rich's life was different she knew something had to change and that is the main reason why she decided to write about it. I would consider her as a model to all the other women at the time, her essay should have been a way to encourage other women to get off their buts, stop washing dishes, stop having kids, get their life together and start studying! The sad part of this is that till this day not many women are being recognized for their hard studies, and it has been almost thirty four years since this has come out to the public. This failure to consider what women need from their college experience in order to succeed is, as Rich says, part of the old belief that women's primary goal is or should be marriage--and that "[t]oo much intelligence or intensity may make [them] unmarriageable" (215).
Sonja is not satisfied with the dispassionate marriage she is having with Leon as she describes it as merely “going through the motion”. She also suspects Leon of having extramarital affair and once Leon confesses his “one night stand that happened twice” their marriage breaks. However, because Leon hardly tries to communicate with his wife about his inner feelings and thoughts, it is this rare courage of honesty and his latter efforts that save his marriage. Honesty also acts as a tool that penetrates their respective emotional walls that are set private to each other. After
Soon she realized she couldn’t share any of these stories with her husband though, because he told her “not to give way to fancy…” since she had quite a habit of story-making and a “nervous weakness” like hers may lead to other “fancies.” (Gilman 293) That can be viewed as an attempt to stifle her creativeness. It’s almost as if he wants to make her believe she really is crazy. In his mind, all she is doing is imagining things. It also seems as if he wants to completely control her. So far, he does.
Elizabeth is a very honourable person, however that all changes when she lies to the court. She has let herself down by doing this and hasn’t been completely true to herself. She knew she should tell the truth in court, but she still lied to save her husband. Hale is a very honourable person, however he has a moral uncertainty
