According to Marszalek, the Petticoat Affair was “the most famous debate over the meaning of womanhood in American history” (p. 21). Throughout this book, John F.

Anna is viewed as a very heroic character even to the villagers because she is a "woman who has faced more terrors than any warrior". When Anna is faced with the death of her husband and both of her kids, although she finds it hard to cope, she only grows stronger and proceeds to help others regardless. We see Anna's changes throughout the book from key events such as her heroic attempt to save Mem and Anys when they were being accused of being witches and when she overcomes her fear and helps Merry birth her child. Elinor describes Anna as a spark which just needed to be let out, and tells her how bright she burns now. This shows Anna's growth into a independant and heroic person.

The strongest sense of reality that I gained after watching Iron Jawed Angels is the ability of women to make an impact on other women. It is this contagious feeling among women suffragists that hold them together through various difficulties. For example, Alice Paul’s public demonstration for women’s voting right eventually even gained the support from a foreign-accented lady who initially objected to this movement. This contagious feeling is also shown through public parade, hunger strike, and ultimate success in the passage of Nineteenth Amendment. When one of the suffragist fell down because of extreme fatigue, when public parade and demonstration is physically disturbed by males, when suffragists are being force-fed in the prison, none of the suffragists budged on their stands, instead, they are held together even stronger by this contagious feeling among them.

By the time the Dominicans arrived on the Island of Hispaniola, the native population had been decimated and was in serious decline.
