Lets take a look at the differences between Christian’s relations with Ana and his relations with the female dominant. Christian was taught how to obey and preform sexual acts by a woman; just when the audience thinks the BDSM relationship between a dominant man and a submissive woman is taboo, the author trades the role by giving a woman the power of controlling a man.

This extract is significant to the era, as newly upcoming 'flapper girls ' encouraged a future of female independence and open sexuality, but this segment leaves connotations that not all women took this lifestyle by storm, and still remained unsatisfied as a woman when unaccompanied by a husband, as shown through Mary 's characterisation in the text. Throughout the excerpt, the consequences faced by the separation of lovers is evident to leave a negative effect on the person on the receaving end.
In both The Female Bell-Cricket and This Powder Box, Nakamoto Takako and Uno Chiyo explore the notion of female sexuality as power. By asserting their sexuality, the female protagonists in both texts deliberately defy socially-prescribed female virtues of chastity and obedience. This ownership of their sexuality grants them power in their romantic relationships with men and liberates them from the submissive position that women are traditionally expected to be in. It is crucial to note, however, that the depicted ‘strength’ of the two female protagonists is ultimately a constructed façade; they are still tied down by society’s prescriptive ideals of femininity, and have their behavior propelled or influenced by their relationships with men.
In our lives, there is, whether we realize it or not, over a million different pivotal moments that lead to different things.

Dante emphasizes the differing roles of these women by three mediators. First, he gives Francesca the freedom to defend herself, letting her to have a partial guidance/autonomy; in contrast, Dante delivers his own freedom in the hands of Beatrice, allowing her to have a complete guidance/complete control over the poem. Second, Dante focuses on the physical aspects of love when talking about Francesca’s love story, while he talks about a selfless, spiritual love when referring to his and Beatrice’s love story.

When Tori Amos mentions “Veronica’s America” she refers to one that judges people based on face value, one where people are cruel and love is a pipe dream. Like Ophelia, Veronica has chosen relationships with the wrong people, leaving her cynical and jaded. She does not believe that love is worth the pain it causes. Tori compares this view of the world to “Charlotte’s America”; while the character of Charlotte is rather ambiguous, Amos speaks of it as if it were full of “cosmic flavor”, a direct reference to one of her other songs “Flavor”, a song about the divine aspects of love. Even though love is difficult, it is worth every struggle because of the happiness that true love can create for someone.
