This idea would be popular in 1939 because many people were poor and didn’t want to be defined by their social standing. Dallas, a prostitute, is kicked out of town by the Law and Order League. The League is a group of proper ladies that have a disdain for Dallas’s profession and judge her harshly for it. It is for this reason that typically, Dallas would be seen as a “bad guy.” However, the movie says different. Stagecoach depicts Dallas as a “good guy.” Despite being a prostitute, Dallas is as well-mannered as any proper lady.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
“Although we wanted to look like we belonged here, the four sisters, our looks didn 't seem to fit in.” Their dark olive skin tone, curly hair, unshaven legs and noses did not mirror the women on television. Therefore, they viewed themselves as unattractive and inferior to the beauty pageant contestants. There was a limited
Working Girl reveals some of the many flaws a capitalistic nation encompasses specifically pertaining to a repressive class structure. The film uncovers how critical society is of social classes are, explicitly a lower-class woman in 1980’s Manhattan. Tess started from the bottom with neither connection or money. Her superior, Kathryne, was born with them and could excel easily through higher education and the business world to become a chief executive officer of a corporation. This film also reveals how sexism also affected a lower-class woman in the 1980’s as her then boyfriend Mick showed displeasure towards her actions and was unenthused with anything she had to say.
Stanley and Stella’s power dynamic is not particularly surprising given the time period they exist in and its overwhelming patriarchy. Stella is disconnected from any form of support system and develops a form of Stockholm syndrome since she is out of touch with the reality in which domestic violence is intolerable. Stella is overly sympathetic and justifies Stanley’s violent behaviour towards her, similarly to Celeste. Celeste giving up on her high profile career to become a housewife merely because of her Perry’s insecurities is a clear example of how she is deliberately isolated from the outside world for the purpose of Perry securing his dominance. One of the contrasting factors between the two women is predominantly the time and context, however, the same logic applies.
In order to support both her and her daughter, she worked as a seamtress. Many people in town adored Hester’s designs and she was displayed to be very useful in her society despite the sin she committed.

Because of Hester’s selfless acts, the entire communities’ views of Hester and the scarlet letter altered. At the beginnning, Hester didn’t demand retribution for the unfair treatments thrown in her path; with this decison Hester was able to repent for the sin she had
“It is queer how out of touch with truth women are” (pg 17) said Marlow in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. Throughout Heart of Darkness, Conrad employs characterization to illustrate the twisted view some individuals have of women. Conrad utilizes Marlow’s aunt, Kurtz’s intended, and the African woman to reveal this idea. First, Marlow 's aunt is used to demonstrate the prejudice toward women that exists in the world. On page 17 when recalling his conversation with his aunt, Marlow says, that women have a pretty world that they live in and, if their world was put into practice in the real world, their world would fall apart almost immediately.
Finally being true to herself, she realizes her place in society is to just be friends with Pip. She was neglecting him the whole time, yet he was still there for her. Although Sam, Dill, and Estella have different realizations and moments where they find their realization, all characters learn that there is always someone willing to accept them in different ways, whether it is family or friend. And once they found their role, they chose to continue their own lives with the person that accepted them for who they actually
In the film ‘The Shining’, Shelly Duvall plays the character ‘Wendy’ the stereotypical ‘woman in distress’ and a rather quite sexist outlook on women. In the beginning of the film, the way Jack behaved towards wendy already showed that he had some sort of resentment towards Wendy, some sort of grudge he was holding against her, “As long as I live, she’ll never let me forget what happened.” Wendy’s character plays the nurturing mother, a ‘good’ wife that fixes things around the hotel like a typical housewife would. This whole ‘typical’ female role as a wife and mother is considered ‘ideological’ and it is semiotic to the male dominated society nowadays. She does jobs that is actually Jack’s job position to do so, like like a scene where she
Elizabeth Bennet has a incredibly strong, and bold personality, unlike her sister, Jane, and not afraid to speak her mind truthfully, which she always does. Since the beginning, Elizabeth and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy have been in conflict. He did not fancy dancing with her since he thought of her as a person from a lower class, and not up to par. When Elizabeth had found out about what he really thought of her, she despised him, and everyone felt so too. They all thought that he was the most un-agreeable man.
