Sarah | 4 comments Celie was sexually, physically and mentally abused. Not just by one man or person, but by multiple. In the beginning of the book we see Celie as a girl who cannot stand up for herself, for many obvious reason. But, at the end of the book we see Celie grown. Not grown in age, but grown as a person. She stands up for herself, she doesn't allow her husband to treat her wrong or anyone to treat her wrong for that matter.

Do you think that because Celie has gone through such traumatic events, that those events in the end helped her become the woman she was at the end of the book?

Jade Flanders | 5 comments I think so. Celie had to fight to grow to be the person she is at the end of the book. Psychologically speaking, the more effort we must give to reach a certain point, the more gratifying it is to be free.
