    that V3


    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'' ?

    Re: that V3

    It's a relative pronoun.

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