For example, when she said, “And if I do it you will be happy, and things will be like they were.” (255), she is lonely and desperate girl who is still having hope of being happy. She is in a bad mood and depressed too much to even ready to die, it is obvious from her reply, “I don’t care about me” (255) multiple times, waiting for him to say nice words or even make her feel good.

Gender stereotypes have been around for hundreds of years and still are today. The stereotypes for women are strict in regards to jobs and homelife, behavior, and even attire. They keep a firm hold on women 's daily life, so whenever women get the opportunity for power, they will take it. Ken Kesey’s novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo 's Nest, strongly features the stereotypes of women and, adversely, women in power; Kesey displays his opinion that women in power will abuse their status to manipulate men. One aspect of Kesey’s display of his distaste for influential women, is displayed through the character, Nurse Ratched (Big Nurse).
They are several examples of inequality between them with Jane describing how she felt belittled by him and was constantly being put down. When speaking to Rochester he also says that girls must worship the men- showing gender inequality. Also when Rochester tells Jane that he was going to ask Blanche to marry him, he did it only to get her jealous. He wanted to infuriate her so it could build up his self-esteem and do something for him and not for her, As you read Jane Eyre has a ton of gender inequality in it, it is a main theme in the novel and shouldn’t be over looked.

To sum it up, he thinks that women are irrelevant figures when not only compared to men but also compared to society. He summaries a part of the basis of his reasoning on women in one statement: her art is false. They would rather live false lives then to admit to the truth. Women today avoid the truth at all times and when the truth is revealed, they become discontent. Woman’s “chief concern is appearance and beauty, (Nietzsche, 226).”
Femme fatales are usually destroyed in the end, either by being killed or being domesticated, as though they are being punished thinking they can compete with men. Male dominance is always restored by the end of the film. In established film noir, the new economic, social, and sexual freedom that women experienced during the war years as they joined the workplace was quite unsettling to many American men. This fear of strong, independent women and the need to show the danger of this independence was shown, whether consciously or not, in most film noir. The Maltese Falcon, like many films of its era, joins in the distrust of all things foreign.
For instance, during the first wave of feminism, women were dehumanized and degraded by men by not being given many human rights, especially women of the LGBTQ community and women of colour. Since then, women have been fighting to gain respect and equality in the male-dominant society. Those who view erotic dance as a degrading and dehumanizing profession that only pleasures men believe that it is because society has not changed in the sense that women are still degraded and objectified by men. On the other hand, those who believe that erotic dance is empowering believe that women have finally surpassed the great inequalities in society, such as the right to vote and take part in any profession they choose. Even though there are inequalities that women continue to face in our society, these feminists believe that women deserve to enjoy their femininity and experience whatever they choose, and with the new waves of technology and social media, they help “dismantle pillars of power and ensure that all voices are heard equally” (Zdrojewski, 2014,
Sayoko 's way of touching her mole with the use of her left hand shows that she is guarding and protecting herself from her abusive husband. Sayoko 's husband is an image of a common problem about marriage failure today. Sayoko was beat and kick by her husband but she did fight, her weakness made her abuse more by her husband.

“Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which afflicts most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives”(Bertrand Russell). One of the most basic human needs is the need to be loved by someone and to love someone in return.
