According to lecture, trains were a new space where people of different social classes mixed, and people had to learn to act appropriately and how to look at other passengers. Right! With much practice, Sugita has figured out how to watch young women on trains, abusing this new form of travel: “It’s too direct to watch them face on, whereas from a distance it’s…likely to arouse people’s suspicions; therefore, the most convenient seat to occupy is one diagonally opposite” (Katai, 175). Yes. This is one of my favorite quotes in the story.
For example, “It’s reliability, silence, cleanliness, and ease of operation endeared it particularly to women drivers, who were also less likely than men to be put off by it limitations...As long as women were the primary clientele for the electric cars, men weren 't likely to buy…”(Volti, 45). The author believes that the electric car was for women to use to do family related activities.

Because of these reasons, I often use other lines to go to Tokyo. Next, many young women tend to put up with Chikans silently when they are on a train alone. However, they should protect themselves from Chikans by following three steps.
This shows that the women were not only lead by the men, but also put into a mind frame that they did not want to displease them, maybe they could have been afraid to do so.

Lysistrata, stood her ground after the back lash of all the women, and showed how wise she was with her plan. She tells the ladies, “If we sit at home all rouged and powerful, dressed in our sheerest gowns, and neatly depilated, our men will get excited and want to take us; but if you don’t come to them and keep away, they’ll soon make a truce”(471).

By defying these "laws" Edna makes clear the morals that all the other women value; the satisfaction of their husband, the acceptance of society, and the conformity to stereotypical roles of a woman. In The Awakening, Edna is used as a tool to emphasize the surrounding society's assumptions of a woman and the morals that they value. Often, a character is set apart from their culture for this sole purpose, to stress a point the author wants to make. In this case, Chopin wants to show the reader how male dominated society has been, how quickly women succumb to their "roles", and how easily people can be shaped to consider a different and all too meaningless set of morals. Edna is strategically alienated in the novella so as the reader can discover society's assumptions and moral values of the era and up until today.

Today, many police officers are known for being rude and/or prejudice because even when they not in job duty, they go hang out and do something inappropriate and it affects their job. And many police officers that are off duty know what is wrong and right but they don’t care because they think they would not get caught or their workers wont tell. Some police officers turn bad to make money through ripping off drug dealers and even dealing drugs themselves. Some try and cover up their own acts of brutality, murder and even torture. One of the worst police corruption was in the 1980s in East New York, Brooklyn, 75th precinct.
They often question the man’s ability and strength if they do not hit them, degrade them, and sometimes the women would also be violent (Holtzman: 2008, 90). Women usually do not wish to be beaten, but will strike against their husband. In America, domestic violence is an illegal act.
