Mr. ________ beats her to exercise his pent-up frustrations (since he could neither marry Shug Avery nor Nettie), and his son, Harpo beats his wife so that she should mind. But Sofia has the real angst “to kill”—to kill her husband’s subjugation, to kill her pathetic emotions, to kill the racial prejudices and to kill the socio-cultural injustice. Whether she succeeds or not is not the concern of the text, but how she confronts the violence behind the closed doors of her house and in the open road of Georgia is the plot of resistance. Her physical strength symbolizes the new forms of revolt against the so called man’s right to beat his wife. She is a woman who dares to call “hell no” to a white mayor’s wife and knocks him down straight on the road.

Female characters propagate sex-positivity through their sexualization, and utilize it as a tool of shaping solidarity by eradicating the double standard concerned with male and female bodies (Pratl, 2009). Axel Alonso’s (2014) previous comments on the impossibility of “not sexualizing comic characters” are affirmed, as he mentions that not only physical ability and appearance take part in defining a character, but sex appeal as well. The argument that sexualizing female comic characters only leads to sexual objectification can only be countered by the cast of dynamic female characters the world of comics has to offer. Catwoman is an astute example of a multifaceted, well-rounded character that utilizes her sexuality to empower her and overthrow
Therefore, she is punished as a scapegoat of the novel and while Gatsby rises in the eyes of the readers in the end of the novel, Daisy falls. From the feminist point of view, female characters in Fitzgerald fiction are punished because they are stepping outside of their and entering the male sphere. To show their role in the man’s world, they are dehumanised and presented like symbols, which in the end might be interpreted as that they are important as much as men give them importance. The ultimate dehumanization of female characters in Gatsby is seen in their embodiment of the American Dream.

Despite their endeavors to escape their bondage, the women behind the bars could not escape because the men found alternative tactics to keep them in confinement. The bars strangle and cut off the heads of the women that climb out of the pattern, “it turns them upside down and makes their eyes white!” resonating to an envision of a crazy woman. The narrator herself is a great example of how effective men were at establishing alternative tactics like this. The narrator was classified as having hysterical tendencies, like most women of the nineteenth century, were when they complained of pain, anxiety, fatigue, or depression, as a source of suppressing their agency through prescribed isolation and prohibited writing.
Many literary criticisms have been written about Blanche and how she tends to lie about everything in her life. “Blanche disguises her desperation with lies- about drinking, her age, her reasons for coming to New Orleans, her sexual experience.” (Dace n.p.). Dace clearly describes Blanche as a liar and describes the fact how she lied about everything from the smallest thing, like her age to something as big as the reason why she went to New Orleans. “... in spite of the fact she’s somewhat older than I.
