  51. I think quote #1 is the most interesting because it is talking about how women can be like man they can do many stuff just like men. You know how people are like girls just need to do what they always do clean cook, etc? Yes, but I know they can do more than that and I just think they have more confident.

  53. i think quote #1 is very true because men expect us to just cook,clean,and do other things but really i know where capable of so much more and that is what Queen Elizabeth was saying in quote #1. that just because we are women doesn't mean we can do what men do. (hope that was good for my first try)

  56. I think quote #3 is the most interesting because it talks about how she would be a beggar & single than queen & married. And it kind of translates to she would rather be a beggar with freedom and make her own decisions herself, than being a queen that's married because if she were married while being queen she wouldn't have the complete power or rule over England, her husband would.
