Of course Mr.___ isn't right. To keep his wife subservient he humiliates her. Mr.___(Albert) is a symbol of male heterosexual dominance over women. Celie is impressed with Shug Avery who is a singer and independent woman. Celie is still trying to find herself in a world that demands her subservience to men like Albert. Celie will come to discover her worth but at this moment she is still lost in her very low self-esteem largely inflicted on her by Albert.
