News soon spread in the house until it reached Orestes’s nurse at youth—Cilissa. She grieved for him like a mother to a son. She was then sent to get Aegisthus but before she could go, the housemaids told her to tell him to come home without armour and bodyguards. Shortly, Aegisthus arrived and gets murdered. Screams were heard and Clytemnestra went to its origins, wielding the same axe she used on Agamemnon, to find Aegisthus dead and his son Orestes—alive and intent to kill her.
The commonality between most all cases is that the men were in positions of power. Similar to how “early constructions of African and black women’s bodies and sexuality played a central role in rationalizing…and [giving] license to sexual violence against enslaved women,” the strict enforcement of a lack of sexuality in white women gave men power over white women as well as a justification for any violent acts committed upon women they considered their property. Evidence has been provided of white men beating their wives, attempting to kill their wives, and of raping their wives or her friends (WA 154). It is because the crimes are committed by husbands that white women can relate to women of color. Males have been superior to women for most all of time, and spousal abuse would have been less likely to get reported and then prosecuted, much like any sexual crime toward women of
They saw it as the more people that come, the less money that they can make. The old timers would act friendly towards new people but as soon as that new person would let their guard down, they would be murdered and all of their cattle would be the old timer’s.

No doubt that history had also witnessed strong and brave women, like the Rani of Jhansi, but such women were very few. There was a Queen of Egypt, even though she was a woman, she dressed like a man and used male pronouns for herself, as it was not acceptable for a woman to rule Egypt. Later, she was murdered by her own son for the same reason. Is it the condition getting better today? It is definitely better than olden days, but women are not liberated completely.
Arising from this hatred many were murdered. For example, Inkpaduta was a Native American whose family was murdered by white men.

In the novel, Panchaali describes the situation thus: “The worst shame a woman could imagine was about to befall me – I who had thought myself above all harm, the proud and cherished wife of the greatest kings of our time” (PI, 193).
The vast majority of male participants embraced that women also triggered domestic violence as they compete for all the more extensive cultivating portions that may produce more regarding their economic status, which men do not need due to the fact that producing more will as well result in dominance by women. This clearly shows that the disparities that exist between women and men in controlling resources that is, culturally or socially in a partriachial society like Zimbabwe resource control is overwhelmed by male or had a male inclination henceforth having a female bias may trigger problems. This also clearly reveals that the level at which men dominates in resource controlling was very high in comparison to that of women which was still nominal. Following the theoretical assumptions that is, gender mainstreaming involves the integration of gender equality for mutation of all policies, programmes and projects. In line to this, it can be noted that the societal norms and values that undermine the privileges of women as well be changed through the adoption of this strategy so as to reach the developmental goals.
