They begin to harbor anger towards their husbands who “still view child care and household chores as women’s work” (Bennetts 419). For Bennetts argument to be valid, the assumption must be made that all women, or at least a vast majority, are in a “permanent state” of anger (Bennetts 418). It would also have to be assumed that men are unwilling to help out when it comes to childcare and women view the responsibility as a large burden. However, no evidence is put forth to support these claims. She fails to recognize the fact that some women might prefer to be a large part of their children’s lives and would rather
Cal The antagonist is Cal. Cal is clearly the opposing character. He may seem as is if he is the victim, but all he does is deliberately attack Andre’s mother not understanding her situation and position. According to the play, Cal states “How many of us don’t want to hurt our mothers and live in mortal terror of their disapproval. Our lives aren’t furtive, just our feelings towards people like you” (50).
She starts to make excuses for him not answering. When she calls again her lover doesn't pick up avoiding her, which makes her wonder what he is doing.The she is obsessed over every action he has done. Feeling rejected and avoided from her lover, she is rationalizing his actions in order because she think she loves him. If she accepts the real truth about their relationship and the situation, she know it will make her feel less of lady. The society as put in everyones head to be.
Throughout this essay, readers begin to think that professional writers aren't as intimidating as they seem. Most would think that professional writers are perfect from the first draft. This piece proves that everyone has a bad first draft, and stresses not to give up on writing after one horribly bad draft. Lamott uses a rhetorical sort of pathos in order to appeal to the reader. She does this by bringing readers' opinions directly into the essay.
In the essay Tannen discusses how men and women communicate very differently and how it affects our everyday lives. She gives real world examples, provides evidence for her claims, and genuinely makes a compelling argument on the vastly different ways men and women go about socializing. She discusses how when men are alone with women they tend to not talk as much, body language men and women use, and how women fear being pushed away while men aren’t in touch with their feelings at all. It’s clear through the essay, as I said before, that Tannen has done her homework on the subject and that it would be difficult to make a case against any of her points. This is why I found it interesting that in the academy award winning film From Here to Eternity, the males and females exhibited behavior that was completely contrary to Tannen’s findings.
In Deborah Tannen’s essay, “Can’t We Talk,” she was able to persuade me men and women misunderstand each other due to the simple fact that opposite genders perceive language differently. Tannen states in her essay, “Learning the other’s way of talking is a leap across the communication gap between men and women, and a giant step towards genuine understanding.” Throughout the essay, she uses great structure and examples to inform her readers of this gap between the genders and how it interferes with communication and understanding. Deborah Tannen structures her essay in a way that makes it easy for the reader to follow, and in turn, helps make her point. When first looking at the page, it is very appealing to the eye. She has six different points proving the differences between men and women through examples.
“Who weep for the waste of sturdy hips” (line12) is mentioned in “In the Counselor’s Waiting Room” thus showing that the mothers of the two daughters are criticizing the two girls in the poem. Typically, each gender must be attracted to the opposite sex; but if this is challenged by anyone they are censured and become an outcast in society. Evidently, in the poems mentioned above, being a woman and acting out of societal norms causes others to criticize the individual and condemn them for the choices they have made. Moreover, the literary devices and elements within the poems are quite different. Within “The Silence of Women”, Rosenberg’s diction is effective in that she creates an image and
Both Benedick and Beatrice hate the idea of marriage and continuously express this view throughout the play by saying things like “I’d rather hear a dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me”. Here, Beatrice clearly turns away the idea of love and marriage, going against the status quo. However, once Beatrice hears that Benedick loves her, her views suddenly change, she conforms to the pursuit of marriage and begins to fulfil her socially sanctioned, womanly role. The play at this point becomes conservative, as all the characters are conforming to society’s norms. In Much Ado, Hero is referred to as a “jewel”.
Therefore conflict can in fact enhance the strengths of our morals and beliefs. What a person stands for is vital but in many cases our beliefs are shut down by others who feel how we view things is incorrect.For example the documentory 'Saving Face' the women stood up for what they thought was best for them such as rejecting marriage or sex yet still were brutally punished for standing up for what they thought was right and are scared for life for doing so. Like in paradise road the women all face their morals and values being
