It is said from the beginning to stay away from her because only bad circumstances will come out of it. Curley’s wife was talking to Lennie how her life could have been a lot better; “I tell ya I could of went with shows” (Steinbeck 78). Not much before she married Lennie, Curley’s wife could have been an actress and lived a very rich and successful life. There was a guy in the shows that told Curley’s wife that she is an amazing actress and could be in the shows. She never gets a letter from the guy in the shows so she ends up marrying Curley; “I couldn’t get nowhere or make nothin of myself… so I married Curley” (Steinbeck 88).
Sakamoto 1 Hazuki Sakamoto Macbeth Argumentative Essay Mrs Proud Lady Macbeth is responsible of Duncan’s Death In the play of Macbeth, there are some characters that could be responsible for Duncan’s death. I personally think Lady Macbeth is the cause of Duncan's murder. She is the most ambitious to kill the king in the beginning of the play, pressuring Macbeth. Lady Macbeth was persuasive of driving Macbeth to commit the murder. She manipulates him to go through with the murder even though he was very doubtful about it.

The plot is seen to end right after Medea does justice to herself by destroying Jason’s new family and by killing her own children. The structure of the plot portrays the importance and significance Euripedes associates with marriage
Furthermore, mother was also the reason why the father went to steal some rampion as she said “Ill die if I do not get any Rampion”. This again highlights the stereotypical nature of women nagging and being troublesome as if she did not beg and cry about the rampion, the conflict would not have happened. Similarly in Red Riding Hood Although most fairy tales by the Grimms brothers fall under a lot of gender stereotypes, there are some fairy tales that show otherwise. These stories which challenge the gender stereotypes of women being portrayed as the weak and vulnerable are not as well known as others however there are quite a

Women became less strong and didn’t find the courage to act on their own or solve problems on their own. Juliet may have ended her own life because she truly loved Romeo, or she didn’t want to face the tragedy on her own.

The second school of thought is that abortion is a right for women, and that it is ethical. The act of banning abortion is making the rights of women regress rapidly, and many are outraged by it. Pro-Life protesters argue that it is unethical for a woman to receive an abortion as it kills the life of an innocent being, but, they do not think of the lives of the women. Without the abortion, a womans’ life can be destroyed. Whilst
Near the end of the play in Act 5 is when Lady Macbeth’s evilness takes over her mentality. She begins to think that the blood from the horrid crime is still on her hands. This mental breakdown is what leads her to her inevitable doom. However, I do not think that Lady Macbeth should be considered as a Witch just based on her participation in the murder of Duncan. In conclusion, I think that Lady Macbeth is more responsible for the murder of Duncan due to her manipulation
While Alison did not plan to sleep with the Nicholas, she created a plan to do so and when they were caught in the act she told everyone that Nicholas forced her. This decision made it seem like women are heartless and cruel. However, most critics use the Wife of Bath Tale to decide whether or not Chaucer treatment of women was fair. Many believe that Chaucer treated women fairly in his books for the time period based on the Wife of Bath Tale.

Pride and Prejudice also deviates from social conventions at that time because Austen writes Pride and Prejudice as a social satire and makes humor of the traditional roles of women. Compared to other novels with female characters at the time, such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Jane Austen’s female characters in Pride and Prejudice break the social norm for women and do not portray them as passive.

However, Pride and Prejudice received much criticism for being a novel full of female characters that fit the social norms for women in the 19th century.
Around the time of the witch trials, the people in Salem were very religious. Rumors were easily spread and it was nearly impossible to prove yourself innocent if people were talking about you otherwise. During the witch hysteria, innocent people were imprisoned and and executed because someone has accused them of being a witch. It is understandable that some would accuse others to save themselves from imprisonment or from possible death. However, I believe Abigail should be held responsible for the imprisonment and execution of innocent people because she threaten the girls, so they would act bewitched and she also lied about getting stabbed by a needle and making it look like as if Elizabeth Proctor did it with witchcraft.
If someone wanted land and they couldn 't get it, they would say that they are a witch and the person would get hung. A lot of people died because of getting blamed on about being a witch.

A Misunderstanding Without History We all have that one character we extremely hate, whether it 's in a book or show, you just want them to die. However, not all characters should be hated to the core, many have their own reasons. In the novel “Of Mice and Men,” by John Steinbeck, the author illustrates how readers can easily misinterpret Curley’s wife without any historical context, through the need of companionship of Curley’s wife, wishing to reach to her dreams and the desire to have freedom. To begin with women in the 1930’s, they desired to seek one that can understand and support their hardships.In the novel all the male characters have no sympathy for Curley’s wife, they constantly speak
