What the Cinderella Story Has to Teach Young Girls - At first glance, what makes a fairy tale a fairy tale may seem obvious—some kind of magic, hidden symbols, repetition, and of course it’s evident it’s fiction—but fables are more than that. As Arthur Schelesinger puts it, it’s about “[expanding] imagination” and gaining understanding of mysterious places (618). While doing this, it also helps children to escape this world, yet teach a lesson that the reader may not be conscious of. A wonderful story that achieves all of this is Cinderella, but not the traditional tale many American’s have heard....   [tags: Literature, The Rough Faced Girl]

Life in Prison for Criminals that Rape a Teenager - ... Judges have the ability to detain a suspect due to the accusation of rape. I would imagine that most female judges are sympathetic towards the victim while most male judges are more lenient toward the suspect. The reason for this statement is because when you go into a court room that has a female judge, the judge often times takes the side of the victim rather than the suspect. Judges set bail at their discretion to give an accused rapist a bond that does not fit the crime. For instance, I have seen in real life a male stealing out of a store and when the man went to jail and was prosecuted, the judge set the man bond to $25,000 or greater....   [tags: sexual assault, depression, substance abuse]
