Hey its Christopher Tryba. Today in class you pointed out that some people hadn't added the Honors Thesis group to their profile. Apparently I was one of those people who added you instead. Anyhow I am now a part of the group so I hope that clears up the confusion.
Hey miss Topf can I do that test make up on Thursday during tutorial instead of tomorrow during eighth? I don't have a sixth tomorrow so I was hoping to go home after my third and i would hate to have to come back during eighth to take the test then go all the way back home. Hope you understand -Richy
I couldnt get this to post on your participation group discussion make up! I sen you an email but hopefully this will work Here are my questions answered. Sorry I have no idea whats wrong.
1. Discuss the decision made by the Grandmother and Mother to disguise her as a boy.
3. Discuss the theme of power.
5. Add your own questions for discussion and contribute.
The young girl’s grandmother and mother made the decision to disguise her as a boy because, the girl’s father and brothers had all died and you need a male to guide females around in their country. It is a law. They also needed help with money and needed her to work, and since men are the only ones who can really do any of the things that are vital towards survival, they cut off all her hair and dressed her in her father’s clothes. And she became a boy, able to work and also having to go to school.
The theme power plays a big role in this movie because; it’s all about the men. Men have the ultimate power over anything. They have the power to get jobs, to earn money, to learn (go to school), to take their women out, basically anything. This power theme in the movie bounces between men and women, and truly establishes what the rules and laws are.
My question would be:
What symbol does the young boy play throughout the movie?
