Read the excerpt from A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. I have repeatedly asserted, and produced what appeared to me irrefragable arguments drawn from matters of fact, to prove my assertion, that women cannot, by force, be confined to domestic concerns; for they will, however ignorant, intermeddle with more weighty affairs, neglecting private duties only to disturb, by cunning tricks, the orderly plans of reason which rise above their comprehension. This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by insisting that women deserve to be educated despite their inferior capacity for learning. suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education. asserting that domestic chores offer fulfillment because they require a vast knowledge of the world. claiming that women who excel in domestic roles should be called upon to serve as world leaders.

This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is an exposition on overcoming the oppression and denial of the women in the society. It is a dedication to Charles. M. Talleyrand whose views on women education to Wollstonecraft were repugnant. She blamed the condition of adult women due to the negligence of girl's education. The women in the society only care about being attractive, modest and elegant. They are deprived to defend their fundamental rights and are treated as subordinates.

In her argument, she describes ways in which women combine their silliness. Their silliness includes visiting fortune tellers, reading a stupid novel, rivalries with women, and so forth. Due to women's low status and no education results in women's faults and not due to natural deficiency.

Please help me! 10 points! The Truth About Antibacterial Soap According to Discovery Fit & Health, about 75 percent of liquid soaps claim to be antibacterial.

Second, scientists believe bacteria may become resistant to antibacterial agents over time, especially if they are not used correctly. Finally, antibacterial soap does nothing to viruses.

A Three-Point Turn Chapter 1 "You know, hardly anyone ever needs to do a three-point turn anymore," said Justin, trying to help Becky calm down. "Oh, so it's not a useful skill AND I am probably going to fail the driving test because I can't do it anyway," Becky said, raising her voice for emphasis. "That should make me feel like a million bucks when I flunk." Justin was riding with Becky so she could take her driving test. He had volunteered for the job because he thought she would be less nervous with him than with their mom, but so far, he wasn't sure he was making any difference. "Slow down, your turn is coming up here," he said, looking ahead. "I know, I know," she replied, "I've been here before remember—the last time I flunked." Justin was pretty sure if he had let her miss the turn, things would only have deteriorated further, but he wasn't sure he was fond of being the scapegoat for Becky's anxiety. "Listen, you need to take a few deep breaths," he said, hoping he could help her at least relax a bit. "Being nervous won't help you with the three-point turn or anything else you have to do. Hey, did you just take that turn without your turn signal on?" This was going to be harder than he thought. "Stop yelling at me," Becky replied, clearly frustrated, "I can't concentrate." "Look, you need to stop and get yourself together here," Justin started. "It is not just about passing the driving test. I don't want to get in an accident, so pull into that parking lot." Becky drove into the office building's parking lot where Justin was pointing. Justin knew they were less than a mile from the licensing office, and if she continued in this condition, he'd be having this same discussion three months from now when she tried the test again for the third time. "You need to get a grip," he started after she put the car in park, "because you have studied and practiced driving all year. You know this stuff inside and out, backwards and forwards. What are you so nervous about?" "I don't know, I don't know," Becky wailed, resting her head on the steering wheel. "I just get so tired of failing." Listening quietly as Becky sobbed, Justin realized this was about much more than a driving test. He also knew if he didn't find a way to help Becky things would just get worse. Chapter 2 Justin took a deep breath and collected his thoughts. Becky was an unbelievably consistent straight-A student. It was Justin who got the bad grades in school, and Justin who had to repeat every math class he'd ever taken. It was Justin who wished he could get the grades Becky got. Some things came easier for Justin: He was athletic, handy with tools, and good at making the best of whatever life threw at him. Mom called him her "lemons into lemonade" kid. But for the most part, Becky succeeded easily, whereas Justin had to work and work to just get a passing grade. Rather than having Becky catalogue all the things she supposedly "failed" at, Justin decided to try an alternative approach, one that wouldn't remind him of all the ways he had failed. "Okay, Becky, let's assume for a moment you fail this test again. What is the worst thing that could happen?" he asked. "I would be the oldest kid at school without a license and be humiliated," she replied. Justin thought he heard a bit of panic in her voice but continued with his plan. "Yes, but won't we still have to drive to school together for at least one more year anyway?" he asked. "Yes, but..." she started. "And who will know, if you don't tell anyone except your friends, that you don't have your license? You know Mom can't afford another car just for you, right?" "Yes," she said quietly. "So what difference does it make, really," he said. "Another three months to wait in the grand scheme of your life doesn't seem like all that long, right?" "I suppose not," she said. Justin could tell she was breathing more slowly now. "Besides," he said, "I would miss all the practice driving with you," and for good measure he reached over and pinched her arm. "Ow," she said, hitting back at him, "that hurt." "So let's go do this, okay? "Okay," she said. Becky cranked up the car, backed slowly out of the parking spot and drove up to the parking lot's exit. Justin noticed, as they waited for the traffic to clear, that she had remembered the turn signal. Use Chapters 1 and 2 to answer the following question: Which of the following best summarizes the main conflict of the story? A. Becky comes to terms with her obsession with perfection. B. Becky fails to use turn signals and sets off a pent-up argument with her brother. C. Becky gets upset on her way to a driving test while Justin tries to calm her down. D. Becky has a conversation with her brother about driving recklessly.

The correct answer is C. Becky gets upset on her way to a driving test while Justin tries to calm her down


In literature, the conflict is the struggle or opposing force the main character faces during the story and that stops the character from achieving some goal. Also, the conflict is considered as one of the main points in literary works as the story focuses on solving the conflict the character faces.

In the case of the text presented during the first chapter, the character Justin and Becky discuss as she feels she is going to fail again and she is worried about it as they both are in the way to the driving test. On the other hand, Justin is trying to help her be calmer but this seems not to work as Becky misses a turn signal and Justin asks her to stop driving which leads to a discussion in which Becky ends crying. During the second chapter, Justin decides to stop discussing and help her by showing her failing the test is not as terrible as Becky thinks and does not really change Becky's life as she can take the test again and wait for some months, which finally makes Becky feel better about the situation and continue driving. This means the opposing force or struggles Becky's faces are the feelings of frustration and anger for taking the test again while Justin struggles to make her feel better and calm.

Why is comparative mythology important to the study of myths? 4. The cultural anthropologist Dr. Jamie Tehrani traced the story of Little Red Riding Hood back to a common ancestor over 2,600 years old. Why do you think the structure stayed the same even though he found so many variations and differences in story elements? 5. Evil is often described in myths as entering the world after creation rather than being a part of it. Why do you think evil is not portrayed as an original part of creation?

1. That myths were created to be figurative elements of real life truths.

2. Noahs ark, which is a story from Genesis in the bible that depicts how God sent a flood because of the depravity and sinful ways of man.

4. Because the story was a myth that probably originated in oral form and was passed down from generation to generation.

5. Because there are both sides, the side that the world is a evil place and then the side that man made the world evil. The reason evil is not portrayed as being part of the natural order is because this person is trying to create the image that the world was a good place but man destroyed it.
