At her funeral she had a “putty” nose the perfect one most would say and pink and white “nightie” to heighten her sex appeal. “Consummation at last”.

She finds the courage to rise up above societies expectation that she stay in this marriage, and walks out: “S’posin’ Ah wuz to run off and leave yuh sometime” (30). When Janie runs off with Jody, she knows that society will not approve, but she does it anyways because she is after that feeling of lust and desire that she experienced under the pear tree. Jody makes Janie feel good, at least at first. He spoils her with the finest treats and he treats her like a true lady. Also, he was perceived as “socially acceptable” by most everyone; he was a prominent businessman and Governor.
Obedience was used in order to provide an example of how girls should act towards their superiors, in particular, their parents. A tremendous focus is on Little Red Riding Hood’s appearance as the superlative ‘prettiest’ displays, this leads people to be ‘fond’ and to ‘dote’ upon her, increasing her vulnerability as ‘predators’ are drawn to her or as Perrault wanted to show, men. Also, the repetition of the attributive ‘little’ alongside the common noun ‘girl’ highlights Little Red Riding Hood’s defencelessness. However, naivety is her ultimate downfall leading her to a grisly end. Despite the warnings that she should go straight to her Grandmother’s, Little Red Riding Hood becomes distracted by feminine pursuits, portrayed through the compound sentence “…gathering nuts, running after butterflies, and gathering bouquets of little flowers.” This emphasises her age and vulnerability as she isn’t aware of her surroundings and the danger they can impose.
Esperanza’s cousin asks her for a dance but she is too embarrassed by her old shoes that she refuses. Esperanza’s uncle takes her to dance and while dancing everybody cheers for them and Esperanza forgets about her old shoes and feels like a woman. While dancing Esperanza was aware of her cousin’s gaze on her. The awareness of a man's gaze is equated with Esperanza's awakening to her own womanhood. Another major theme in the vignette is one of sexuality because as Esperanza is in a transition state and first experiences her emerging sexuality as a desire to be desired by the boy at the dance.
The reader’s interpretation of these characters is how Nick sees them and describes them, which is why his protagonist role is very important in the way in which the story is told throughout the novel. Also from Nick’s narrative, in chapter 1we see that unlike Nick, Tom is very arrogant and dishonest at the dinner party, advancing racist comments, and also having public affairs. We get the impression that Daisy is very emotional and tries to appear “shallow” as she says that she hopes her baby daughter will be fool, because “that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful fool.” This is said because of the unattractive reality in the East Egg that Daisy’s husband, Tom Buchanan, is having an affair. In the final part of chapter 1, as Nick arrives home from the dinner party he sees Gatsby for the first time, reaching out at a distant green light at the end of a dock. At this moment in the story, Nick does not know the significance of this green light and what it represents, which gives Nick another reason to be intrigued by Gatsby, as well as his source of
Every once in a while she would run off with Tom and live in an apartment. She would wear these clothes that were way too big for her as well as throw parties and feel rich and snobby. Myrtle is the type of girl who would brag about money. IF we set her within a high school setting, she would be a “popular” who thinks she’s all-that. However, as she tries to escape her husband she happens to be run over by Daisy.
Levy’s “naivety” (in her own opinion at least)of what a real marriage is like is totally shattered by what a marriage should be in her own terms. Besides that, Levy really helps the audience receive an image that their relationship (Levy’s and her fiancé) was just like any other one, because they would fight, bicker, and love all at the same time. One particular example of this would be the small scene in which they are picking wedding dresses, and Amy (her fiancé) really sees the wedding as an important piece, therefore she is incredibly picky over Levy’s dress, and generally other elements of the wedding, just like any other couple. Levy stated“ I modeled a low-cut pale-gold dress with spaghetti straps and a gauzy skirt from Mission. ‘Nice!’ said Amy.

Lewin quotes Justice when she says, "'My stomach's always in knots getting ready to go to a party, wondering if I'm wearing the right thing, if I'll know what to do..." (70) This happens because of the different cultures the middle-class, which Justice is now in, presents, compared to the lower class she used to be in. Also because of this, Justice treats her niece and nephew completely different. She even went an extra step to make sure that the kids would fit in. To even further prove how crazy social classes determines the different cultures is when Lewin explains that, "...according to sociologists who have studied how social class affects child-rearing...working-class parents usually teach their children, early on, to do what they are told without argument and to manage their own free time, middle-class parents tend to play an active role in shaping their children's activities, seeking out extracurricular
