I can relate to the main character of the movie. Since my father had grown up with a family that did not really pay much attention to women and felt as if they should be cooking, cleaning, or caring for the children all day.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
