Character Role Analysis

Connie's Mother

Connie's mother functions as a foil to Connie. She embodies an idea of woman as a domestic housewife that Connie rejects.


June is Connie's other foil. She embodies the modern career woman, an idea Connie also rejects because it seems to lead to a sexually impoverished life.
