A women’s identity is define by the idea of her gender and the internal forces that force her to fallow this notion. In many cases, the simple idea of pursuing a political career causes dismay in society. However, in order for a woman to achieve a level of equality that is just, there must be a change in the infrastructure of the women’s role, politically, and economically. In the article “Autonomy and the Struggle for Female Identity: Implications for Counseling Women,” McBride strongly declares, “Much of the feminist literature over the last 20 years has focused on the injustices done to women in our society, the need to validate women for their differences from men, and the need to move toward equality politically, economically, and socially ” (McBride 22).

Analysis 1. In my novel Matched the major conflict is mostly resolved. I think this because the main conflict in the story is that she can't choose who she wants to be with as well as hiding everything she knows that since the society has made its existence completely and utterly illegal. In the novel, Cassia does choose which boy she wants, which ends up being Ky, but closer to the end of the novel, Cassia does a sort job that gets Ky deported.
