Celie’s anger made her is brave which made her vent to Mr.______. Mr.____ tried to talk back to Celie but she couldn’t handle it so she got a knife and stabbed the table. Doing this Mr._____ knew that she is brave because he thought that she is his slave since he makes her do all the work at home! For example like he made her clean the house, shave him and hold suitcase for Shug when they were leaving. When Celie was leaving with Shug, Mr.____ tried slapping Celie but she showed her the hand which made him stop. Doing this made Mr.______ realize that she will defend herself and fight back because when he saw the hand he stopped right away. By being brave no one will ever disrespect and abuse you so stand up for yourself!
There is a limit of being brave. Sometimes being brave could make you do crazy things which could make you suffer. For example Sophie she was disrespected and was brave but she went over the limit where she shouldn’t have been brave because it was the mayor that she hit. The mayor has power where he has all lot of connection, even the police is behind him. When Sophia hit the mayor everyone got mad because they love the mayor because one of the people hit Sophia in the head which made her knockout while others were yelling at her. Sophia went to jail and has been suffered a lot because when she came out of jail she looked all messed up. It seemed like she could barely see because her eye was swollen. If this happened to Celie she wouldn’t have hit him because she is used to it because of Mr._____ and Pa but if this was going on for a while.
Women need support in order to being treated right. Celie never had support to defend herself you need to have support so you know someone will always be on your side. For example in the movie when Shug and Celie started get close Shug said to not cover her mouth when she was smiling but Celie said no because she was told by her pa that her smile is ugly. Celie has been told that she doesn’t get happiness since her dad is telling her to cover her face and she has been through a lot. When Shug said that you are pretty don’t cover your mouth she started to smile without covering it! This gave her support because everyone called her ugly so no was there to support her, but now she does which made her forget what Pa said about her smile! The symbolic meaning of smile is happiness where you are happy about something. In the movie when the family was having a dinner and Celie said she is leave and Shug said she is coming with her. This made Celie more of her own person instead of being bossed around because Shug was supporting her! Shug is the other one to love...
