Title: Sylvia: Literature's Hillary Clinton
Developed under the guidance of Prof. Shirley Jefferds , English
In the short story "A White Heron", Sarah Orne Jewett, a New England regionalist writer during the late 1800's, illustrates the struggle women have faced when confronted with the restrictions of a patriarchal society. Anytime progression occurs two types of people emerge, people who accept new ideas and people who challenge those ideas. In the twenty-first century, women, like Hillary Clinton, are finding nontraditional ways to participate in society. The generational shift in gender roles is recognized in, and is a result of, stimulating literature, such as "A White Heron".
