Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?

June

Character Analysis

June is Connie's boring older sister. Connie's mother is always comparing the two, with Connie inevitably ending up short. June offers up another model of womanhood: if her mother is the model of domesticity, June is the professional woman who lives a sexless, joyless existence.
