I’m working on a Social Science exercise and need support.
Women and Agency:
- In sociology and philosophy, agency is defined “as the capacity of a person to act in any given environment. It refers to the capacity of individuals to act independently and to make their own free choices, based on their will. Agency is normally contrasted to natural/social forces, which are causes involving only deterministic processes.”
- Using this concept, do women in Torn from the Nest exhibit agency? Think about the characters of Lucia, Marcela, Petronila & Teodora. You can also think about the writer.
