hetnew Robust Ladies, Robust Fathers – Lara Croft, Jessie Fremont, Condoleezza Rice
Jessie was born on Could 31, 1824 in close to Lexington, Virginia. She was the daughter of a well-known and highly effective U.S. Senator who not solely doted on his daughter however included her in conferences with Washington officers and skilled her to help him in his work. Jessie’s consideration from her father falls beneath the Zeus-Athena class the place the daddy is the one who helps his weaker-sex daughter achieve energy and status in society. It’s due to the daddy’s affect and energy that the younger girl is tolerated by society as an alternative of ostracized, ignored and even in some instances burned on the stake as a witch.
Many films and storylines as we speak nonetheless characteristic girls who owe their energy to their father. This archetypal thread is seen in Angelina Jolie’s character, Lara Croft within the Tomb Raider films. In these storylines, the mom is both lifeless or negligible due to a weak spot in character. It’s wonderful what number of occasions a robust feminine character is attributed to a strong father as an alternative of a strong mom. It’s nearly as if we see a girl who’s profitable after which uncover that her relationship along with her father was like an internship and we are saying “Oh, that explains it…” I’m wanting ahead to a shift in society when a girl attributes her success to her mom’s energy and talents.
A few years in the past, Forbes Journal dubbed Condoleezza Rice “The Most Highly effective Lady within the World.” I wished to study extra about her as a result of I’m amazed at how effectively she handles herself in entrance of the press. How did she handle to at all times current herself with poise? She is at all times articulate even when others strive desperately to ruffle her feathers. It did not take lengthy for me to determine how she grew to become such a powerhouse. I consider Condoleezza is so profitable as a result of her dad and mom already knew their daughter was essentially the most highly effective woman (girl) on the earth. It simply took Forbes Journal many years to catch on.
I’ve studied what little info I may discover about how Condolezza Rice grew up. She had an extremely supportive mom and father however I felt that the biographical info emphasised her father’s position in her upbringing greater than her mom’s position.
Condoleezza was the one baby of John and Angelena Rice. Angelena named her daughter after an Italian musical reference to play music “with sweetness”. With foresight, her mom aptly named her as Condoleezza’s persona has been like honey in drawing a different assortment of buddies into her life. Her ex-students, skilled soccer gamers, Vladimir Putin, the Bush Household, and the kids of the New Technology (an after-school program Condoleezza co-founded for deprived youth in East Palo Alto) are just some examples.
Condoleezza was born on November 14, 1954. Her father referred to her from that point ahead as his “Little Star”. From delivery, Condoleezza was raised inside a robust neighborhood and household life. Her father was the reverend of the Westminster Presbyterian Church, a highschool coach, and a highschool steerage counselor. Her mom was a highschool music instructor and performed the organ on the church. Her dad and mom dedication to the members of their neighborhood gave Condoleezza a first-hand look on the energy that comes from making a distinction in your neighborhood, giving her a spot inside the neighborhood as a star inside the constellation – creating a complete image with these round her.
“The multiethnic half [of American society] doesn’t work with out one other vital worth: perception in upward mobility. The core of that has at all times been the power to stage the enjoying discipline via training. Except training is offered to all…that a part of the dream will probably be misplaced.”[i]
Condoleezza summarizes her household’s legacy in that assertion. For generations, Condoleezza’s household created alternatives for themselves and their kids by committing themselves to training. Self-teaching and ensuring they attended college was a practice along with her household. Her dad and mom had very excessive expectations of Condoleezza. They uncovered her to ballet, French, music, present occasions, soccer and different athletics. They felt as if her survival trusted a complete training.
Condoleezza’s father labored with many kids in the neighborhood that did not have the identical dwelling alternatives as she did. He was at all times encouraging somebody to profit from themselves. Condoleezza adopted in his footsteps with a number of civic commitments, together with, as I discussed earlier than, co-founding an after-school program in Northern California whereas she was a professor at Stanford College.
