“Lemonade” is Beyonce 's call for the liberation of Black women. By using her platform, she was thinking beyond herself when producing her album, she was connecting her pain to the millions of other Black women. In order to heal from the betrayal she faced from her husband, she had to cope with other issues that define what she is in society’s eyes as a Black woman. Throughout history, women had to fight to have a voice.

Othello is also counting on the fact that Barbantio once loved him. Ruth Vanita claims that Othello is also a good husband who has an intense love for his wife Desdemona, ‘’the difference between Othello and Shakespeare’s other jealous husbands...is the far greater depth and intensity of Othello’s love for his wife’’ (1). Othello’s devotion to Desdemona is nothing in comparison to Shakespeare’s other husbands. Othello is deeply and utterly in love with Desdemona. Desdemona’s father accuses Othello of using magic to get Desdemona to fall for him but Othello reassures him that he does not use magic, he just tells stories.
Strong, ambitious, fierce. When a woman puts all her energy into acquiring a status reserved for men, it certainly is not an easy task. She must be willing to face a lot of criticism and survive through it. In A Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry shows a 1950s determined young African American woman. Educated, yet childlike at times, Beneatha Younger will go to great lengths to become a doctor and break a female stereotype.
“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy - in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other,” Robert A. Heinlein says., What most people can not account for is the acknowledgement of the fact that love and jealousy is both there at the same time. Within the short story, “Cathedral”, by Raymond Carver, Carver expresses the theme of how a character who feels an enormous amount of jealousy changes form an encounter throughout the story. The Narrator 's wife invites her old friend, a blind man, by the name of Robert to her home. This triggers an inner conflict within the Narrator.
After Romeo meets his supposed destined lover, Juliet, he returns to talk to his friends Mercutio and Benvolio after planning his marriage. Mercutio notices and points out Romeo’s new, content behavior in contrast to his old, joyless attitude: “Why is not this better than groaning for love? Now art thou sociable, now art thou Romeo, now art thou what thou art - by art as well as by nature” (2.4.90-93). Although Mercutio believes Romeo’s change in etiquette is caused by the absence of love, it is in fact the presence of it. Mercutio observes that something has made Romeo much happier, and it is indeed Romeo’s previous encounters with Juliet that have created this effect of increased contentment.
– and the female characters as male – Desdemona, Emilia, and Bianca. We are aware that this is a rather radical change to the original play. We want to vigorously explore gender norms in our society and how women and men can or can’t play the same roles. We think it will show in harsh perspective how men can get away with emotional acts of rage or passion that women never could, and how women can get away with cleverness and manipulation in a way our society doesn’t associate with men. We want to portray Othello as a young black woman coming from a tough childhood.
Although love at times can inflict harm, love is a force of good as it joins people together, brings out the best qualities in a person, and provides joy. Looking at the book Romeo and Juliet, you see love as a good impact as it brings people together. In this book, there are two teenagers, valiant Romeo, from the Montague family, and beautiful Juliet, from the Capulet family who fall in love and marry each other secretly. In the end, they kill themselves based on their love and when their parents find out, they end the feud to honor their children saying, “O’ brother Montague, give me thy hand.” (5.3.296) Here, love connected the Capulets and Montagues. Because of love, a feud ended and peace was restored between the families and the streets of Verona.
The other is a message that a woman’s utmost goal is to ﬁnd a Black man who will take care of her (Hurt) These messages have created tension between black women and men because one suggests that black women better have their own or prepared to be disappointed in the short comings of black men. While the other message implies that black women can only fall in love with men who throw money at them. Messages like these have been passed down for years, and has prevented many black women from developing their own definition of love and romantic expectations. Both Janie and Tracy have their own initial definitions of love and its importance in their lives. However they allowed the words of their elders to morph these definitions and these changes haunted both Janie and Tracy.
Normally, the more educated the lady, the more probable she is to wed. Yet, a school taught black lady is not any more liable to have a spouse than a poor Caucasian lady with scarcely a secondary school certificate. With regards to shaping a family, black ladies are not profiting from cutting edge training — nor are they passing those advantages onto the cutting edge. His contentions lie in the sexual orientation unevenness inside of the African American group — where two African American females move on from school for each one African American male. In spite of this irregularity, there is still huge social weight on dark ladies to just marry black men — to "support" the race and manufacture solid black families.
With this in mind, Cathy lives a comfortable life, manipulating Mr. Edwards’ self-torturing love to pamper her and cater to her desires. Nonetheless, Cathy fails to delude him well enough, allowing him to see past her disguise to reveal the true, devil-like Cathy; her failure and poor foresight almost results in her death, and Mr. Edwards is the first to terrify her. Soon after her traumatic experience with Mr. Edwards, the Trask brothers take her in. Her beauty and frailness attracts Adam’s attention and sympathy, to which the narrator adds, “She needed protection and money. Adam could give her both.
The absence of the male in the household and in relationships, financially and emotionally, influenced a strength in women that hinders the growth in current relationships and the start of any new relationship. This stigma of the strong black woman persists throughout the production of films who are produced by both black men and women. For instance, in the movie ‘For Colored Girls’, which is about seven strong black women, to some, who tries to navigate through life in New York City while overcoming each unfortunate event they encounter on a daily basis. Each character has their own identity and struggle, which in the play ‘For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf’ was symbolized by the colors in the rainbow including brown which symbolized the black
On first impressions of his intended, the satirical Mr Bennet was ‘captivated by youth and beauty and the appearance of good humour which youth and beauty generally give’ (Austen, 1984) however shortly after a marriage constructed upon lust and desire, Mr Bennet’s ‘respect esteem and confidence’ in his wife soon vanished forever. Consequently, Mrs Bennet was demoted by her husband to the ranks of entertainment and a source of amusement for her ‘ignorance and folly’ and want of ‘decorum and propriety’ (Austen, 1984) Moreover with the loss of respect for his wife and the realisation that ‘a pretty face is but sorry compensation for the absence of common sense; and that youth and the appearance of good nature, with the want of other good qualities
