In the article Brent talks about different times and situations he observes, in Brooklyn the women try not to look as obvious that they were scared or nervous about the situation they were in when he would walk by and as for women in Chicago when the women felt threatened they instantly ran. It’s obvious that Brent wasn’t used to these types of situations, “I grew up one of the good boys, had perhaps a half dozen first fist fights,” (staples 1) So when he encountered these times in life it was a sort of realization.
It’s not just people that are homeless, no food or clothing. Poverty can be describes in many different ways. People who may not be able to make their bills each month are in poverty. People who just have financial difficulty once a year are in poverty. People who have material problems that don’t have medical insurance, so they cannot go to the doctor are in poverty.
As a result, urbanization quickly started going out of control due to lack of communication, too many people being forced into slums, and many other reasons. Without the help of women, urbanized areas could have become horrible places to live and nothing would have gotten done. For example, Jane Adams established the Hull House, a prominent American settlement house. Adams despised both war and poverty. The Hull House offered instruction in English, counseling to help immigrants deal with the American big city life, childcare services for working mothers, and cultural activities for immigrants of neighborhoods.
Emily has a house that nobody has been to in over ten years (with exception of her Negro servant). Emily and her father had a deal going with a mayor named Colonel Sartorius that stated she did not have to pay taxes. Years passed, Emily’s father died, and her husband-to-be/sweetheart deserted her shortly after. In the aftermath of these losses, Emily rarely left her house. Her home gave off a horrid smell and the town’s people were not happy that she wasn’t paying taxes.
He can compare to Dr. John W. Fields because they each suffered from a separation due to slavery. John Fields was separated from his mother at a very young age as Big Sam was separated from Scarlet, but they were reunited after the war as John Fields was never reunited with his family. A way John Fields can compare to Mammy is he had a mind of his own, and wanted to learn and be an individual, and not just a slave. Mammy was lost and the only way of life she knew was being a slave, and caring for her white owners. She never really pursued any type of learning and her mind was “too simple, and not evolved enough” for her to pursue an education of any sort.
Their gamble however did not pay off as they experienced poverty and misery in the United Stats. Gabriel Capone could not manage to support his family. Poor and illiterate, he only managed to get a job as a grocer and as a barber in one of the barbershops in Brooklyn (David Wallechinsky, 1981). Gabriel Capone could not even pay for the family’s monthly rate. As a result, Teresa had to work as a dressmaker leaving nobody to give guidance to their nine children.
Richard and Jamal both come from a poorer uneducated family. Jamal’s mother works, but does not have a very steady job and his father is not part of his life. Jamal’s brother does not go to school and still lives with Jamal and his mom. They do not live in a very good neighborhood because they can’t afford to live anywhere else. Jamal is very close to his mother and brother throughout the whole film.
When Miss Emily is required to pay the taxes like others by new generation, she acts stubbornly and refuses to follow the proposal because she thinks that it is irrational to ask an old Southern woman to fulfill this task; her reaction seems to reflect her attitude that cling to the past; she believes her father’s dedication to the town is still valid for the tax exemption and “see Colonel Sartoris” is her only reply to the young men even though that the mayor has passed away at least ten years ago. Another component that emphasizes Miss Emily’s mysterious life and hidden truth is the physical appearance of her and the house. They all appear to be dark and uninhabited; since the whole town have limited access to her own privacy and the author does not explicitly state any thing about her inner life, readers will be allowed to have their own guesses and suspense until the end. The second section seems to associate with the third one where the author takes all readers back to the past; Miss Emily’s father’s death and the relationship between her and Homer Barron dramatically affect on her behaviors and bizarre events around her house. The
Most rural inhabitants receive no assistance from the government and instead receive sporadic aid from charitable or non-governmental organizations targeted specifically at these groups. One of the biggest hurdles to overcoming this extreme poverty is the lack of opportunity, which has perpetuated the current situation. For a large percentage of the DR’s population, the lack of job opportunities forces many to find a need in their community that is not being
Also some of men just don’t let women to work just because someone needs to cook and clean house while husband earns money. In some of the African countries women always have to look after babies, look after the shelter, find the water and do all sorts of jobs like that. Also in Indian countries women always had less rights than men. And even if in Britain or other countries this stereotype can be challenged in countries such as Africa or India it hasn’t changed for a very long time. Women also is portrayed as week and delicate so women hasn’t got an access to jobs like building, driving and so on, just because they don’t seem as strong as men.
