When Da-Duh’s granddaughter talks about the tall buildings, she brings up a postcard. Da-Duh’s granddaughter asked Da-Duh if she wanted her to send a postcard with a picture of the tall skyscrapers. That postcard could have been a slight step towards living in the moment but her life in Barbados restricted her from the step because she was internally attached to Barbados and could not let go. Da-Duh has lived in Barbados her entire life, and change in her attitude would have made little to no difference now because her culture has become her life. In the end though, Da-Duh did ask for the postcard.
However, keeping your name is ensuring your identity and being respectful to your parents; not keeping your name cannot show love between two people changing.

THe World State doesn't want people to give their people responsibility because they want, “Stability, No civilization without social stability. No social stability without individual stability,” (Huxley, 42). The World State doesn’t give the people responsibility to because with responsibility, there is a need to fulfill the responsibility and stability is threatened when the responsibility isn’t. So the World State gives jobs that they know will be fulfilled and then when the job is done they are set loose like children. Despite the lack of responsibility, there are women who are not freemartins that, “did not forget their contraceptive precautions by the regulations,” (Huxley, 77).
Alice Paul was a woman of strong personal accountability. As a Quaker, Alice was taught it was necessary to work to better society. It was not an option for her to sit on the sidelines and let others fix problems in society. Alice was also brought up in a world in which gender inequality did not exist.

Edna wanted this lifestyle to be her ownself and not live as someone she did not want to be such as M.Rag the way that society intended on her living. -M.R decision in life was to she have her own independence/identity. She lived the life she wanted to live which to Edna seemed like the "good life". M.R lifestyle choice had a cost from not having a nice house to nice clothes everything that Edna had. Having the indpendence Edna wanted would cost her the lavicous lifestyle she once knew.
It took courage for her to flee the south, from the only home and the only family she’d ever known, and it took just as much courage for her to defend the new family she created while living in New York. Ruth persevered despite the racial prejudices again her, her children and her husbands. Due to the need to be accepted, which is true of both the characters in The Crucible and today’s civilizations; many choose to fore go their own comforts for assimilation, submitting to their fears. But not Ruth; with her courage, she overcame it
However, women aren’t innocent in this controversy either. They have some control over the attention they receive based on how they dress and present themselves socially. I know for a fact the reason my friend dresses up and stands out it for the attention. In conclusion I agree with Sheets-Johnstone’s thoughts about women only being seen as body parts and objects. Although some perspectives on the subject claim women live in bad faith and put themselves in situations to be defined as a body part, if there was no routine of male’s looking or the notion to dominate and females attention starvation or feelings to please, there would be no need for a dominant and submissive relationship.

She followed Abigail and had no individuality. Without that individuality she was just an easy target for Abigail. Individuality is the key to having self-respect because then you will be able to accept yourself and respect yourself.
