creating a thesis and an outline on Female Characters Struggles in Margaret Atwood’s Cat’s Eye and Devika by Shauna Singh Baldwin.
I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Female Characters Struggles in Margaret Atwood’s Cat’s Eye and Devika by Shauna Singh Baldwin. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The younger ones are more likely to absorb well into their surrounding, in comparison to anyone in their older aged females, who are more used and well absorbed into their previous surroundings. Yet, blending in at any age is a possibility. Firstly, in Margaret Atwood’s Cats Eye, you see young Elaine Risely, at a young age as she begins to identify herself with girls and starts to want and do “girly” things. Slowly changing her from “tomboyish” to fit in. And in comparison to Devika by Shauna Singh Baldwin, Devika is an immigrant in her early married age, who tries to let go of her culture, where she came from, creating a new mental identity. whom she calls Asha. Using Ashas image she begins to want to explore new things because of her new environment. Secondly, both Elaine and Devika become more materialistic and want things that their new culture demands. Finally, both eventually grow into their new environment. As Elaine becomes very connected to her new self, Devika accepts it when she puts herself in danger, only then she become who she is meant to be. Therefore, assimilation can take place at any age, though there are hurdles that must be faced in order to learn and accept their new surroundings.
Women of any age must face the yardstick set by other women in a surrounding, culture, or religion in order to conform to their gender. It is all based on the things and people we come across, whether it is how a woman should dress, act, and talk and walk. In the case of Elaine in Cats Eye, she faced the difficulty in making friends and necessarily joining a clique of girls, constantly trying to prove herself she could fit in, and personally, I would have to do the same thing if I was placed in her situation. Secondly, she must face the death of her brother, whereas in my case I was dealing .with cancer at a young age. .
