The girls back away in fear, too intimidated to respond to her challenge. This story is narrated by Squeaky, whose main responsibility in her family is taking care of Raymond, her mentally disabled older brother. She explains that many people insult Raymond, referring to him as her “little brother,” but she tries to hold herself above the taunts (Bambara 75).

The “Judges” Are Watching: Stifling the Woman For as far back as history there has women have always struggled to rise above the expectations that they can only be wives and mothers. Society conditions women from a young age; teaching that girls play with dolls and boys play with trucks, that “ladies” do not lift up their dresses in public and that Daddies go to work while Mommies take care of the children. Regardless of how progressive or feminist a family is, a woman will still encounter stereotypical gender roles and biases in society. Although laws restricting women from leading lives equal to men have been changed there are still social boundaries that many women could -but choose not to-cross. Today women can take a stand for equality, but no one has figured out the best way to take action.

She will stand up to anyone and anything, warrior-women Ugly Girl, as she puts it. She ends up dropping off the basketball team after not doing well in a game which also tells us that she is afraid of getting humiliated and be a laugh to others, but that is not her major problem. Her major problem is that she also overheard what Matt says and she is the one to convince the principal that Matt should be forgiven and allowed to return to school. What she does not count on is that she begins to actually be attracted to Matt, and for a girl who is been operating independently of what other people want and think, it is sort of a hard thing to deal
Putting aside the differences they have a trait in common; they are true life stories that happen to women on a daily basis. The poem “Barbie Doll” is very different from the poem “La Migra.” It is a very discouraging poem because the destructiveness of the standards of female beauty led to the girl’s death. The young girl classmates used to make fun of her big nose and fat legs. “Everyone saw a fat nose on thick legs.”(line 6). She got to the point that she was not strong enough to take all the pressure, so she cut herself up and offered her legs and nose up.
They’re learning that physical beauty is the primary judges of their character and not their brains. Child beauty pageants are wrong because it encourages sexuality at a young age, they can also create harm for that child, and they are sometimes being forced by their parents to compete. Young girls parading around a stage wearing a bikini and pounds of makeup is very wrong. The outfits that they are wearing are outfits some grown women wouldn’t even wear because it’s so inappropriate. There is a popular television show called Toddlers and Tiaras that documents what goes on during these child beauty pageants.
That sounds like something a mother would say. What Mrs. Jones says to Roger is, “Then, Roger, you go to that sink and wash your face” (2). Even after he tries to rob her, she is still concerned about his self-being. She cannot control her way of caring because it comes naturally. Another way she exhibits her motherly nature is she goes behind a screen and could not see Roger.
The Aunts teach the Handmaids at the Red Centre about how women are now protected and respected. In reality, Gilead is turning women against women. The girls at the Red Centre are supposed to testify about their past lives, and when Janine confessed she was raped, the other Handmaids didn’t sympathise with her at all but were forced to condemn her that the rape was Janine’s fault because she led them on. And Offred admitted that “We meant it, which was the bad thing”. The condemnation might have started out because they were forced to but eventually the Handmaids enjoy comdemning each other.
