A healthy relationship is based on mutual respect, trust, and communication. Without any of these three components an unstable and unhealthy relationship is easily formed. In the story “The Chaser,” by John Collier, the audience is reading the start of a first-hand unhealthy relationship where trust, communication, and mutual respect are one sided. I believe that through this story, Collier was trying to enlighten males of their subjective characterization of women through their lack of these essential components. In the story, Alan is portrayed as a love-stricken, desperate, man in need.
I find Hepburn fascinating for similar reasons I find Rodriguez. Hepburn challenged the status quo and won. She had an immensely successful career but she didn’t bow to the Hollywood smut machine. When I say this I am talking about her ability to say shove it to all the Hollywood pressure and decrees for women to be dressed and visualized as sex objects. I think it is amazing that Hepburn said no and relied on her amazing natural ability to act to be a successful woman in Hollywood.
He is a strong character who has seen it as his mission to bring Ethan into the CIA as he thinks he is a rogue agent. This man is immediately seen as a flat character, but in the end is dynamic as well. Ultimately, no matter that the movie flip-flops its way through gender stereotypes, the final result is the image that women are just as capable – if not more – in areas of physicality and violence, if they so choose. Women are often portrayed as weaker or more emotional – which just gives them the advantage of surprise when they pull out the big
In the interactions we are exposed to between him and his wife, he is making fair points, such as calling her out for buying unnecessary items, yet she replies in a satirical manner, “It is not a bad thing to want things, Will”, as if it’s a meaningful answer. Will doesn’t respond and the scene ends shortly after in his silence. This proves further that the women in Glee portray themselves as strong beings, who are able to influence the men around them with relative impunity. Perhaps the strongest female in this episode, is Sue Sylvester. Although we see little of her within this episode, her introduction as the Coach of the high school cheerleading team portrays her as an aggressive female, who is strong, bold, and cunning in contrast to the male football coach, Ken, who seems to be disarranged and dimwitted.
The lines, “Your drop of hope/Coupled with mine” is a good way to say that change will not happen unless everyone bands together and works toward a common goal. The feminist movement is a clear example of this. Women in time began to realise that in order to transform society they would need to ban together and form their own organizations. They campaigned upon a whole range of issues from property rights and divorce to equal pay. Increasingly, women recognised that campaigning was limited whilst women could not make their voices heard directly.
By reducing him to nothing but his manhood, Lady Macbeth causes her husband to feel as though he must prove himself to be a man once again. Secondly, the use of her lower status as a woman is especially relevant when she is able to lead any forthcoming suspicions away from Macbeth, because no man would ever believe a woman capable of such diabolical nature. This is especially evident when Macbeth goes off on a tangent and admits to killing the guards. Sensing that her husband is acting loquaciously, as he reveals information that could potentially lead to suspicion thrown upon them Lady Macbeth professes that her delicate female sensibilities are affected. Immediately Macduff says “Look to the lady”(II.iii.115).
The interruption used showed how intense and emotional Beatrice was; She want to make sure that her thoughts were heard. Benedick seemed to be so “in love” with Beatrice that he was willing to prove his love to her no matter what. Beatrice shows that she is a strong independent woman, but hates all of the boundaries set on women. With the metaphor, “O, that I were a man for his sake!” saying in context if she was a man, she would fight, something not allowed for her sex. She gives a play in Benedicks words he says “By this hand, I love thee” playing on that she responds, “Use it for my love some other way than swearing by it” Telling him to prove his love by using his hands, suggesting him to attack
What else do you want done? I'm ready, willing, and I'll try to be able…She didn't say anything, or move” (Chandler 18). Quite smooth with his words, Marlowe shows the reader how to finesse the woman he is trying to get without being so explicit. Lola being depicted as the damsel in distress is immobilized by Marlowe’s words. This is because in a world filled with dirty, conniving, and menacing men, Marlowe stands out above the rest as being noble and valiant.
Also, because yielding to this unqualified claim will inevitably violate Gawain’s moral code, Lady Bertilak’s words cannot be considered innocent or lacking in purpose. This temptation gains the majority of its appeal by challenging Gawain’s reputation and pride, establishing a relatable relationship between Gawain and the audience as almost all individuals prioritize status and self-interest. Because this relationship is made, Gawain’s breach of morals in kissing Lady Bertilak reveals the near universal weakness of pride among the human race. The imperfection of mankind is further demonstrated when Lady Bertilak tempts Gawain with the green girdle. This gift attracts Gawain’s interest as it guarantees his safety, but it also challenges his virtue of honesty because Lady Bertilak “[asks Gawain]... to hide the gift from her husband” (1862-1863).
Stella and Stanley’s relationship is full of passion and blanches’ and Mitch’s is just about security and having someone so they don’t feel lonely. Blanche and Stella certainly have different taste in guys and look for different qualities in their partners. For example, when Stella was telling blanche about their wedding night and how Stanley became violent and starting hitting light bulbs blanche was confused as to why Stella would let that happen. Stella responses by saying she was sort of thrilled by it. It is obvious that Stella likes the more aggressive masculinity type and Blanche likes the sensitive
Wilkie Collins said “Any woman who is sure of her own wits, is a match, at any time, for a man who is not sure of his own temper.” In Zora Neale Hurston’s novel, Their Eyes were Watching God, Janie threatens Joe’s sense of control. Janie threatens Joe because of her ability to undermine Joe’s management and authority. Joe Starks is uncomfortable because he enjoys being in control, but isn’t always in that position. Janie threatens Joe because of her free will Joe Starks feels threatened by Janie because of her independence. When Janie is asked to give a speech, Joe cuts in and says, “Thank yuh fuh yo’ compliments, but mah wife don’t know nothin’ ‘bout no speech makin’.
