Also, John Proctor is surprisingly sensitive and thoughtful. When he asks his wife if she is saddened he displays concern for her well-being. He wants nothing more than for his dear wife to feel loved and he is willing to do whatever it takes to make her feel that way. He always spoke good about his wife. For example, when Elizabeth was accused of witchcraft, John said, “My wife cannot lie, I have paid much to learn it sir.” (p.111) John Proctor's major flaw was his great pride in his name.

This book is a very good inspiring story. The book was definitely very engaging the way the author wrote was very nice. This book deals with how people should hold on to their dreams and talents and no matter how much problems you face you should never give up.

James’ choice of language in the Governess’ manuscript displays this interpretation; Frequent use of the words, “mine”, “me”, “myself” give this interpretation verification. Her manuscript is written in first person, however her outlook on her surroundings and the story itself, constantly revolves around her own feelings and actions and very often little more than a monologue. James presents the governess as self important and as seeing herself as the centre of attention often. When she first sees Peter Quint, James writes “it was intense to me that […] he never took his eyes from me”.

Freedman, “Violence in the Mass Media and Violence in Society: The Link is Unproven,” excerpt from The Aims of Argument” Allusion Make a reference to another literary work, person, or event. Four decades ago Betty Friedan, in her groundbreaking book, The Feminine Mystique, wrote about women who suffer “a problem that had no name.” They were sick and tired of being sick and tired of having no identity to call their own: The problem is always being the children’s mommy, or the minister’s wife, and never being myself. One woman described her situation as living in a “comfortable concentration camp.” There’s a new problem without a name now and it’s a mare of another color. Women are complaining about work and writing about it. Elizabeth Perle McKenna left a high-powered position in publishing to search for the neglected parts of her life.
Day after day she was forced to burden the cruel thoughts of others opinions of being inferior because she was a women and a women with her own thoughts at that. Taking place in 1630, societies thought upon women as the subsidiary sex and not respected in the way modern day women is. The job of a puritan women was limited, care for your house, your husband, and your children. If a women stepped out of those bounds her life became hard and wicked. The only women who were relieved of these bonds were widows who had the privilege of being able to sue or be sued, owning their own home or land and disciplining children and servants.
This is proof of repression and oppression in the Iranian culture. The veil has a strong connection not only with Marjane’s life but every woman in Iran.Marjane went the first couple of years in her life not wearing a veil to be forced to wear one during the war. The veil expresses a negative change calling for action. The veil is a symbol brought throughout the whole novel, meaning it’s extremely important, because they didn’t want new cultures brought in by western people. It reveals how freedom was not a priority and that their main priority was to be loyal to Iran, its culture, and its people.

This means that she failed to be objective in several instances.A few good poems to use to capture her struggle with relationships might be these: "Mirror","By Candlelight" ,"Mary's Song".

Also it can also be read as an allegory of female yielding and final revolt in a men's world who have been responsible for all the disasters and wars
Name: Isabella Lorduy Ariza Rationale The following text is a speech written by myself from the perspective of a Pakistani girl called Malala Yousafzai, who has suffered from discrimination and prejudice against women regarding the right of education, which is extremely important for me, since it is the base of wisdom and knowledge. It is directly linked to the course since it talks about the important role, which women represent, and the importance of equality in a society that has not been able to overcome an old and parochial point of view in which men are the only central figure. By writing this speech I wanted to explore a new point of view, in which I could actually feel what other individuals are suffering through women prejudice. The purpose of this article is to inform the readers about the massive impact which this problem has caused and apply this fact to real life situations. It is specifically directed to a young female audience, with the purpose of creating consciousness and awareness to these girls and showing them that no matter their age or their gender, there is always a way to fight for rights and equality.
