1st paragraph;
In the story Bernard over hears Henry Foster and his assistant talking about Lenina. Quote; " Yes, I really do advise you to try her," Henry Foster was saying. Bernard was so offended and disgusted by the way that they were talking about Lenina, like she was a piece of meat. This is one of the traits that had been based off the historical figure, George Bernard Shaw. George advocated for the equal political rights for woman (relation to property and the means to life) George thought that everyone deserved to be equal and woman should not be mistreated. Which is the exact same way that Bernard felt about Lenina.120
