Interview with Pangmee Rachel Jumps Jessica Alvarado San Diego City College Due: February 13, 2011 Interview with Pangmee Learning that your pregnant can be an exciting and nerve wracking experience. When I started the interview with my cousin, Pangmee, she warned me that she was going to be extremely graphic, so I could have every detail possible. I interviewed her in my home so we wouldnt be interupted, and also to be honest so I would be more comfortable. I was very nervous to be interviewing someone about something so personal. Once we began I was fascinated with the many emotions that come with being pregnant, both wonderful and unfavorable.
Katniss never fully came into her own in Mockingjay. In Hunger Games, she was a floundering yet passionate girl desperate to protect her family and stay alive. While she made a lot of mistakes, we loved her even more for them, because we saw her struggle, we believed her desperation and her motives, and we wanted her to succeed. We saw her near-double-suicide not as the easy way out, but the final spit in the face of the Capitol that had pulled the strings for so long. In Catching Fire, the story was fast-paced and intense, Katniss still struggling but really maturing as a fighter and a person.
However, they still put their little differences aside and fought for a common goal. There were many steps taken to receive this goal. One was a action that would shock many people. Susan B. Anthony would cast her very first vote. On November 1, 1872, Anthony and her three sisters decided to resister to vote.
Valenti provides many statistics of abuse against women here in the United States as well as examples of evidence for the mistreatment of women. Valenti's appeals began before she had written a single word, mainly due to her being a woman. She appeals to the emotional side of her readers, writing that we “cry with Oprah and laugh with Tina Fey”, that we are “fooling ourselves” into believing that a “mirage of equality...is the real thing." She is trying to explain that it is a sort of ignorance-is-bliss situation: look at all these successful women on television so how could equality not exist? She also cites facts, while maintaining an emotion, by mentioning George Sodini, who specifically targeted women in his shooting “killing three women and injuring nine others."
We can see how each event led to her feeling like society didn’t need her; led to her feeling suicidal. The chain of events leading up to Eva Smith’s death, affected her in a way that would not have been expected by any of the characters. I believe that all of the characters in the play helped push Eva towards the edge. Every event that happened added up to cause Eva to lose self-esteem until finally she reached a suicidal state of mind. All the characters are to be blamed for her
However, it seems that Eleanor didn’t know her place at first and wasn’t really able to find it until her world came crashing down when she found out FDR was having an affair. You really see Eleanor become a strong women and fight for things she probably would’ve been reserved about before. She began to use her position to make changes and soon became Eleanor Roosevelt, and not just the first lady. There were many surprising things that I read throughout the book. One thing that really surprised me was how unprepared for World War II, or any battle really.
Even her daughter as well as society later refers her mothers English as broken. And because of that in her younger years, Amy felt somewhat embarrassed by her mothers English. And felt that her view of her mother was legit because of instances as such in (3rd paragraph 507). “I had plenty of empirical evidence to support me: the fact that people in department stores, at banks, and at restaurants did not take her seriously, did not give her good service, pretended not to understand her, or even acted as if they did not hear
Why did Thatcher fall from power? There is no doubt that Margaret Thatcher was one of the most controversial post-war politicians who governed Britain. Since 1979, Thatcher was the Prime Minister of Britain, but by being in power for so long, it ultimately led to her downfall. In the South, Thatcher was admired and much-loved, yet she was loathed by working-class men in much of the North. One of the reasons for her downfall was because of her relationship with her cabinet.
Sachi went insane because she wasn't used to these living conditions. She says, " a~Tomoko and I had always been treated like princesses when we were young, and I never knew what it meant to go out of my way for others.' "(Tsukiyama 143). This is a truly humbling experience for Sachi because she is shown a completely worse side of life opposed to the pampering that she experienced before.I can personally relate to this incident because it relates to when I transferred to a public school from a private school. In the private school, everyone wore a uniform and was usually treated fairly.
Lai 1 John Smith Dr. K English 154 19 October 2011 Women and The Lottery Through a feminist perspective, women view themselves as strong individuals and would be appalled by a society viewing them as nothing more than a material property. In Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery”, women had no voice in regards to public decisions and actions. For example, in the short story the townspeople had a tradition to sacrifice one person in the hopes of reaping the best harvest. In most cases the wives would be the first chosen, many feminists would view this as an abomination. Tessie Hutchinson, one of the main characters represents women who are being tyrannized by society because of their gender.
