I’m working on a Literature exercise and need support.

essay should be between six and seven typed, double-spaced pages in 12pt. font with one-inch margins, and should include a list of works cited in MLA format.

Ling Shuhua’s (1900-1990), “The Night of the Mid-Autumn Festival,” “Ding Ling’s (1904-1986) “When I was in Xia Village”each represent the plight of women. Looking at one character from the above stories, or comparing two characters, how do women characters represent traditional culture and the need for reform.
