Although Jaimito seems sweet and the perfect fit for Dede, he is quickly criticized. His marriage with Dede becomes bitter, argumentative and abusive. In one instance, he “grabbed her by the wrists and shoved her on the bed,”(176). As well as abusing his wife, he controls her and doesn’t allow her to be too involved in the revolution like her sisters and their husbands are. Throughout the book, Jaimito is controlling his wife's actions and constantly questioning her, which doesn’t cause him to seem like a great husband or even a kindhearted person.
Over time, the consequences begin to take effect on George and his mental health goes downhill due to the shadieness of the upper class. He goes as far as locking his wife up in a closet, “‘I 've got my wife locked in up there,’” (136), because his faith in Myrtle becomes weak from her sneaking around
She tried to kiss Tom Robinson, but he wouldn’t accept her advances. Her father then came home and he saw Mayella trying to kiss Tom. Her father then, presumably, beat her and called Heck Tate to tell him a story about how Tom Robinson raped Mayella. Even though Tom did not rape her, she didn’t stick up for him because of her fear of her father and her hurt at being rejected by Tom. If she would have known what friendship was, she would not have lied and pressed charges against him.
Lenina does not love John and he does not feel worthy of her so when she starts stripping he pushes her away and calls her a whore. A quote that stood out was, “How much I love you, Lenina,”(191) because of how this is the first time those words are uttered from a character. I think Huxley will later reveal why John rejected Lenina when she offered herself to him and I think love is going to be further spoken of and explored due to the fact that it involves a Savage who was raised around married couples and a Beta who was conditioned to think that promiscuity is what is
Perhaps the husband was insensitive to her needs. The narrator continues to write in the journal and constantly talks about the yellow wallpaper as she loses her sanity. She finally breaks after seeing a woman under the wallpaper. He husband is stunned in the last paragraph when she says to him, “’I 've got out at last,’ said I, ‘in spite of you’”. In the end, the husband’s ignorance to his wife’s condition leads her into psychosis.
The male-dominated society that Esperanza grows up in forces the idea that women are weak and should stay locked in their houses while men go off to work. The men are immoral and seedy, as expressed in the chapter in which a homeless man leers and asks for a kiss from the little girls. Esperanza experiences the evil of her community when she is sexually assaulted, causing her to lose her previous desire to explore her sexuality. Before being assaulted, she wanted to be “beautiful and cruel” like her friend Sally, because Sally was what she understood to be a perfect woman. However, after her rape she decides that she needs to discover her own identity for herself.
After analyzing the pattern for awhile, the narrator witnesses a woman trapped behind bars. Eventually, we realize that the woman in the wallpaper is the narrator. Throughout the story, the narrator 's mental state continues to deteriorate. Being both the narrator 's husband and physician, John assumes that he knows what’s best for his wife. However, in this essay, I will argue that Gilman portrays John as an antagonist or “villain” in her story because, through his actions, he is the main reason for his wife 's descent into insanity which proves that he didn’t know what was best for his wife after all.
Once Ben began to talk to Dallas Susuki it wasn’t long till he fell in love with her, even though she confessed to him that she was raped and already had a son.

Dallas then made Ben leave his house because she was so angry that he hid this secret for so long.
The woman on the floor trying to take the wallpaper down would not let her husband in as he tried to knock the door down, but she does not realize she is doing it to herself. For example, Catherine Golden states in her article that, “The narrator seems detached from the bits of wallpaper on the floor next to her and John wallpaper fragments that could be read as a literal representation of the source of her insanity. The narrator’s hallucinations and action of tearing down the wallpaper to free the woman trapped behind the wallpaper pattern condemn her to madness” (60). The woman husband seems to not listen to her in what she has to say in the story about the wall in her bedroom. The man treats her more like a child and does pay any attention to her.
In the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, we see an example of sexual abuse when Aunt Hester sneaks out to meet with a man named Ned Roberts.

The reader observes Holden’s insecurities when Holden calls the prostitute to his hotel room. He mentions to himself, “I know you’re supposed to feel sexy when somebody gets up and pulls their dress over their head, but I didn’t. Sexy was about the last thing I was feeling. (Salinger 123)” This exemplifies how Holden struggles when dealing with females. Holden demonstrates the magnitude of his insecurities when he states, “Then she sat down on my goddam lap .

In the play John yells to Elizabeth, “No more! I should have roared you down when first you told me of your suspicion.
This states another good example of cruelty to women because back then women were not allowed to work they were expected to stay home and clean all day and raise there kids. Lastly, In the story her husband never lets her talk about house she feels, so she keeps it all bottled up in her head which eventually drives her crazy. As “The Yellow Wallpaper” States “It 's hard to talk to john about my case, because he loves me so. But I tried to last night” (777 Gilman). This show another great example of women cruelty because back then women were not allowed to state there own opinion and also
