Women domesticity was considered the most important aspect of their lives. This might be the case because of the nature of men in their culture as “warriors”. Women at home were responsible to keep the family, and daily life functioning until men returned. In addition, it is important to remark that during Colonial New Spain women were classified as elite women, mestizo women, indigenous women, and slave women. Therefore, women had multiple roles, and a wide diversity of conditions.
Child of The Dark Paper Carolina has made some bad decisions in her life, but so has everyone else. To me she represents the everyday woman struggling to keep her family alive and well. All she wants is the best for her children and herself. Carolina is a strong woman and she is very independent. As Audalio Dantas, I will publish the Diary of Carolina Maria de Jesus because I want to show the people how Carolina’s pride in her own independence is the vital importance that determines both her identity and the way she reacts with other favelados.
Adolescence in Cyberspace “. . . the simple truth is that the Web, the Internet, does one thing. It speeds up the retrieval and dissemination of information, partially eliminating such chores as going outdoors to the mailbox or the adult bookstore, or having to pick up the phone to get hold of your stockbroker or some buddies to shoot the breeze with.
Whatever he said was right and it was to be done. I think that Amabelle built a new sense of power through everything that she experienced in her life. Although she was not a slave, the societal system that Amabelle lived in is one that ties into slavery. Just as blacks were treated badly by whites during slavery, Haitians were treated badly by Dominicans. “Papi,’ Senora Valencia’s dad would be a master hypothetically speaking.
Their desire for self-improvement was evident in their quest to be educated. Most were self-educated and they also sought economic autonomy. This was a significant difference between the black and white women of the antebellum era. The white women continued to be taken care of their husbands and family and continued with their comfortable lives; however the black women, survivors of slavery, out of the need for survival, drew strength from the horrific treatment they endured as slaves. The desire to become educated motivated the black women to learn to read, develop an understanding of the white woman’s culture, and work to support themselves as they developed skills that would prove to be invaluable.
The 1900’s were tough times for women in America. Some women survived by faith in God and some women took matters into their own hands. Those were desperate times and these strong women did what they had to. Susan Glaspell born in 1876 Grew up in Davenport Iowa and Zora Neale Hurston born in 1891 grew up in Eatonville Florida. Both women grew up in very different parts of the country but they both grew up struggling against a patriarchal culture.
The last character I feel is important in this story is Nanny Crawford, she is Janie’s grandmother. Mrs. Crawford raised Janie, she worked as a slave and the things she experienced made her a strong black woman. She wanted Janie to be responsible and understand everything she needed to know about money, love, and just being responsible. Janie didn’t’ like the way her grandmother tried to raise her because she independent and wanted to love who she wanted to love. She didn’t want to marry because of money but because she loved him.
Founding Mothers “Why is Founding Mothers an appropriate title?” We always read and hear things about our founding fathers, and how great they were to the establishment of the New World, but why is it that we never acknowledge the women who worked just as hard as the men? Colonial women fought against inequality between men and women in the New World. They endured many kinds of setbacks for the good of the colony. Also, they set up all the groundwork for future women to follow, constantly working doing household chores or jobs around their towns. In a completely undeveloped and hardly populated land, women’s traditional work set up the basis for life in America.
