In modern-day life, many women (and men) of today decide to further their education to impact the world with their knowledge. Since education, in the present day, is of high stature (to implement the foundation for a career) it is more prevalent for people to proceed to further their intelligence to become a relevant opinionated person in society. The past painted a picture full of women being a possession to marry off and their emotions were diluted by their husband’s principles. In the movie, “Mona Lisa Smile” the concept of the importance of being married rather than progressing professionally is constant. Women are portrayed as being the housekeepers and dropping from their studies once their true goal was achieved (being married). Traditional values conflicted heavily with the ones that we see in the present day which produced a significant conflict within the film that gave the audience a clear view of both sides.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
