Loisel, was her dress her husband had bought her for the ball. The dress was expensive and made her feel like a whole different person.
Her desire for purpose and meaning becomes a slave by the longing to feel like "one of the crowd", thinking that no person would respect her based on her financial status. If only she was herself and didn 't have to borrow the necklace from Madame Forestier, perhaps the visitors at the ball would accept her for who she is. Nevertheless, Madame Loisel luckily understands some proportionate of morality, based on how much work she performs to return the loss of the necklace. However, at what cost was that one exciting and fruitful evening? Was it severely necessary to sacrifice ten years of her life trying to pay back one mistake that was caused from

Women were extremely mistreated in the late nineteenth-century, no matter what amount of money they had. The women that’s family had more money would be treated minimally better but the mistreatment still ranged from schooling, jobs, and how they should live their lives. Women to this day still have problems in society whether it be working the same job as men but getting paid less or playing the stay at home mom but society is still not happy with that. We have come a long way in one hundred years but universally there are a few more kinks before women will be equal to men.
She was culpable for some of the bad choices Macbeth made because she influenced many of his decisions. People often hid things from Lady Macbeth because they thought she was too delicate to hear anything that wasn’t about rainbows and butterflies, which is very frustrating because society says that all females are fragile and dependent to men.

Mrs. Mallard is such an interesting character to discuss due to the fact that she is such a controversial character. Some would say that she is a sick individual for imagining her life being so much more care free without her husband. Others would defend the fact that that being a wife in the 1800’s was never an easy task. Woman were meant to be seen, not heard. They were supposed to tend to all of their husbands requests and demands.

Then with Ginny acting like nothing was wrong, because she buried the memories away for good, Rose thought it was okay to just act like it was okay.

This lead to the oppression of women in marriages since they didn’t have many liberties and were frowned upon if they wanted to be more than just a housewife.

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) immensely supports and enhances my understanding of Canadian culture through the intent of empowering women to become their own heroines and its accentuation of the importance of self-development. Through the author’s revampment of these tragedies and her unexpected use of comedic relief, we, either as the reader or viewer, are able to better understand and relate to those within the play.
