Six months later...She's a lady.
compare/contrastThe movie and the book both show the major difference between Eliza as a flower girl and as a lady. Higgins is also very rude and insensitive towards Eliza in both. In "My Fair Lady" there are more scenes with Mr. Doolittle. Also in the movie, Eliza returns to Higgins instead of leaving Wimpole Street and marrying Freddy.

Text to SelfI can relate to Eliza when she feels different when compared to the upper class. When I first moved to the U.S. everything was confusing and hard to get used to. In our society today, we still judge people by their dialect. However, instead of dialect being used to determine social status, it is used to determine someone's level of education. Today, it is more common to be in the middle class, instead of being strictly in the upper or lower class.
