Moreover, this shows that they have good morals because not only do they do this for the fellows, but also the Earth Goddess. Samelko 1 In addition, Achebe disproves the stereotype that non-western societies are not smart enough to be self-sufficient, to assert that non-western people are civilized.

There even a moment when Philip invited her to his wigwam and even offered her a pipe, which she rejected, but we can see here that she was taken not as a regular captive. Thanks to these skills she became a pretty valuable captive. She was trading her goods for other things that she needed to survive and make her terrible life a little bit better there. The next thing was when she refused to work on the Sabbath, Indians allowed her to do this. In this point we clearly can see that her skills of good housewife kept her alive and helped in success.
The mother takes care of Cinderella through many forms, through the tree that provides her with the dresses she needs to attend the ball and through the pigeons that point out the incorrect brides to the prince. Panttaja also argues that “Cinderella finds refuge in a pear tree. Since these places of refuge continue the bird/tree symbolism we could, quite possibly, be meant to see the mother in them.” (659). Regardless of her mother dying, she was well-mothered. “Unlike the narratives favored by psychoanalysis, which are about maternal absence and disempowerment, this tale tells a story about a strong mother/daughter relationship that shape events.” (660).

According to Dietz and Lehozky (1963), the discipline of nursing slowly evolved from the traditional role of women, humanitarian aims, religious ideals, common sense, trial and error, war, and feminism. To truly appreciate where we are going, it is important to know where we have been. Sullivan (2002) mentioned that in many societies, the provision of nursing care was a role that was assigned to female members. As caretakers of children, family and community, it was natural that women were the nurses, the caregivers, as human society evolved (Sullivan, 2002). Because women traditionally provided nurturance to their own infants, it was assumed these same caring approaches could be extended to sick and injured community members as well.
