how does the community affect beneatha? What role is she expected to perform? And does she fill the role Walter and mama expect her to fill

Beneatha dreams of being a doctor. Walter, as the man of the family, expects his sister to put his needs first. Mama shares her daughter's dreams, but she also defers to Walter's status. Note, Mama also supports Beneatha, and she often corrects her son..... she does not, however, wish to emasculate her son.
