    Default that V3

    Hi,

    Chopin describes her as having ''a delicious frankness of manner'' and being apparently very outspoken,'' which contrasts with the softer image of femininity that prevailed during that time.

    I have seen this sentence in the character analysis of 'the kiss', and I couldn't understand the usage of ''that prevailed''.
    What is the purpose of using ''that'' before ''prevailed'' ?

    Thanks.

    It's a relative pronoun.

    Does it help to think of it as '...the image of femininity which prevailed...'?
