The event is known of because the twins want someone to stop them, so they tell everyone, but no one believes them.

Elizabeth Procter was married to John Procter who supposedly had an affair with Abigail Williams. John Procter went to break things off with Abigail Williams because his wife found out about the affair and she accused Elizabeth of witchcraft hoping that Elizabeth would no longer stand in the way of their “love”. The only problem that interfered with her plan was that John didn’t feel that strongly for Abigail. He cared more deeply for his wife. Whenever John went to testify against Abigail, she accused him as well.
The father in the lay of the two lovers prevents his daughter from marriage. However, she’s fallen in love with a nobleman: “She found him engaging and thinking of her poor chances of married love because of her father’s arbitrary rules, she chose to do the very thing most fathers fear and gave her love to the young man…” Refusing to accept her fate, the daughter goes against her father’s will and chooses to devise a scheme with her lover to get married. Her rebellion against her father because of her infatuation represents women making her own choices. Furthermore, after marriage, wives were known for holding power over their husbands and persuading their opinions: “In France and in England, women often ruled territories and even kingdoms upon the absence of death of husbands. Women usually possessed their own households and circles of patronage, and it was widely recognized that women had considerable influence over their husbands.” Mature wives were offered “...freedom from supervision, control over the household, and participation in government.” Therefore, in the lay, when the daughter fights for her love, she is also inadvertently fighting for the power she could obtain through marriage.

Writing about the struggles of women, the novels follow the life of Lily who experiences resentment from her husband and sexism at work. Although she gets her much deserved token, it is watered down by the fact that she gets it much as a token rather than as a reward for her ambition, abilities, and drive. The lead character is assaulted because they desire and enjoy adulterous se and are ready to leave abusive relationships. Through Lily, the vulnerability of women is put into focus as she becomes more vulnerable to abuse once she decides to leave her husband. She only does find redemption by getting into a relationship with another man, taking up her role as a protective mother, foregoing her ambitions, and being proactive in seeking justice for herself, and her daughter.
Of course, women, such as Murasaki, were forced into marriages without their own consent, which does identify her own experiences as a lady-in-waiting in the Heian royal court. This feminist view illustrates the forced submission of women as sexual objects for the Genji, which has much merit in terms of the Murasaki’s own insight into feminist narratives of women living in these patriarchal circumstances. In this case, Murasaki provides a feminine narrative of the experiences and choices that women had to make under an oppressive male dominant government. The Genji, therefore, is merely a central character that expresses the total control of male figures in the novel, as part of a larger narrative that reflects the unique views of women in medieval Japanese
Mammachi, the mother of Ammu and Chacko is representative of the older generation of women in the novel and is a victim of oppression and discrimination at the hands of her husband, Pappachi. She was physically abused as she was beaten either with a brass vase or an ivory handled riding crop and psychologically traumatised by her husband. Mammachi however, kept mum and as a post-colonial Indian woman she succumbs to the lures of pre-colonial caste rules thus, she becomes an instrument of patriarchal domination despite being a victim herself. Moreover, it is evident that the men in the novel, particularly Pappachi, suffer from an inferiority complex. Pappachi expresses jealousy when he refuses to help her when she started a pickle making business even though
Furthermore, the leadership uses various dehumanizing methods to achieve complete subservience of women to men. Some of these methods include destroying identity through classification, objectification, and indoctrination. Most women of Gilead are sufficiently repressed that they seem to accept their assigned roles, at least outwardly resigned to their fate. Atwood uses gender roles in The Handmaid’s Tale to show the lengths to which misogynistic totalitarian governments will go, to protect their dictatorships. The Republic of Gilead is a hierarchical society which requires complete submission of women to men.
Marquez uses machismo to explore the double standards of male and female sexuality in Latin society. We already know that women were forced to marry and had to be virgins until marriage, yet from the beginning of the novel we already see that Santiago has a lot of interaction with other women. This shows us that society is very old fashioned and flawed since women and men should be equal. “Divina Flor, who was the daughter of a more recent mate, knew that she was destined for Santiago Nasar’s furtive bed”, from this quote we can deduce that women have a certain role in society which is underneath the mean and that they have no choice but to accept their fate. Latin superstitions are also used in the novel; Marquez uses the imagery of birds and trees to get this point across.
In Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s 1981 novella Chronicle of a Death Foretold, the narrative recounts the events leading up to the eventual murder of bachelor Santiago Nasar, a man accused of taking the virginity of the defrocked bride Angela Vicario despite the lack of evidence to prove the claim, and the reactions of the citizens who knew of the arrangement to sacrifice Nasar for the sake of honor. This highly intricate novella incorporates a range of literary techniques, all of which are for the readers to determine who is really to blame for Santiago Nasar’s death. Marquez uses techniques such as foreshadowing and the structure of narrative, along with themes such as violence, religion, and guilt to address the question of blame. Although Santiago
