I don't think Julia lasted too long in "re-education". Unlike Winston, Julia treated their affair as sort of a game. She was kind of like a teenager sneaking out of her parent's house and rebelling. She knew the consequences of getting caught by the Party were dire but she thought she was smarter. So, when she does get caught, she is not ready for what is in store for her. Winston, however, has been up to debating O'Brien for most of his life. Winston always knew he would be caught and it takes something like room 101 to break him. I'm not sure Julia even got to room 101. If she did, her fear might have had something to do with lack of control; she loved to think she was in control.

I'm also not sure Julia ever got in the Room 101!

First of all, Winston did not "break in room 101 because of his fear of spiders." It was his fear of rats that got him so reach the point where he told O'Brian toput his torture on julia. Also, seeing that julia commited the smae crime as winston it onlt seems fit that she went to room 101 as well. At the end of the book we read with obvious text clues that Julia is pregnant. Julia was such an avid participant in her sexuality, and so much more dominant at it, it is fair to say that julias worst fear was to be raped.
