Abigail worked for Elizabeth Proctor as a maid in the house. Later fired amidst an affair with John, Elizabeth's husband. The accusations didn't end there; as the orphan desired to end the conflict with Elizabeth. Abigail proceeded to spread rumors saying that Elizabeth was bewitched. Salem, being a very religious village, had very harsh consequences for those accused of witchcraft.
The motive behind her deeds has deep roots in the susceptibilities of the society she lives in. There is a tangible social tension and an innate inequality, which sweepingly grows into sexism, racism, and other -ism based discrimination. What is even more problematic is that such issues are left unspoken - there is no open discussion about their rightness and the consequences of spreading rumours or isolating the women from the social and political life. That is why it is safe to assume that one of the reasons Abigail Williams falsely accuses so many people without showing any signs of guilt or remorse is her outspoken resentment towards Salem and its residents. Since the beginning of the play she has been notorious because of the village rumors about her provocative and quite manipulative behavior.
Prioress in the end was the woman the Middle Ages expected and wanted. The Wife of Bath on the other hand, was a rambunctious woman who loved 'love', wealth and sex. She had married about 5 to 6 times and wore the pants in the relationship. The Wife of Bath questioned God, loved material things and was not afraid to insult or slurr.She was not the everyday, typical woman of the middle Ages. Though both these women showed to possess similarities to real medieval women such as Heloise and Christine de Pizan.The Prioress and Heloise-both were prioress, devoted to religion and educated.
Early in the book, he speaks of the “early severity of the Puritan character”. Among the people of the time religion and law were almost identical, and both were so thoroughly interconnected in their character that “the mildest and the severest acts of public discipline were alike made venerable and awful”. In view of all this a sinner like Hester Prynne could have expected no sympathy from the town people. The conversation of some of the female spectators of Hester Prynne’s public disgrace clearly shows the narrowly puritanical ideas that governed their thinking. These women were not satisfied with the punishment that has been imposed upon Hester Prynne.
Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller also did many lectures. “The point of these lectures was to increase public comprehension of the life of the perceptually impaired” (Williams, Donna Glee). Helen was not satisfied with what she had already done though. “She expanded her focus and interest on human limitations” (Williams, Donna Glee). When she soon got all of the people’s attention on this subject, she got on the subject of woman suffrage.
She tends to arouse controversy. Firstly, Patient Griselda represents other women as the weak and really hopeless creatures who do not have any rights and are totally dependent on the men. Without men's instructions and help they are not able to do some particular activities. It means that wives should be fully submissive to their husbands who do not show any respect for them. That is why, the acts of Griselda seem to be absurd.
From the beginning, she makes it apparent that the new law of women needing to wear a veil over their hair due to the revolution was very unfair and unnecessary. As a child, Marjane didn’t fully understand why they had to do this. After the veil law was put in place, her non-religious boys and girls school was changed to a religious school where boys and girls were split up. Many, many women did not like the new rule of the veil, so much that once protests began, women were arrested for not wearing the veil. Fashion moved from ideas taken from western culture to more conservative, like the veils or the full body dresses women had to wear.
Rachel was the daughter of Reverend Brown, who brainwashed the people of the town to radically believe that God must come before anything else. In simpler terms, anyone who dared to speak against that concept, would be hated by the people of Hillsboro. Because of this, Rachel felt pressured to follow her father’s rules. If she failed to do so, she would be an embarrassment to him. Rachel’s love for Cates was stronger than the fear she had of her father.
Anyone that practiced another religion whether Protestant or Catholic were removed from the colony by the judicial system as well. For evidence of corruption in the puritan judicial system, one can look towards the case of Anne Hutchinson. Although, prayer groups were common in Puritan communities Anne Hutchinson was persecuted for holding one with slightly different beliefs than the church of Boston. Her main “crime” was teaching that faith alone and not a moral or religious life is the means of salvation. A large portion of the evidence used against her was accusations of several lewd acts simply for having both men and women in her prayer group.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a very confident, determined, and fearless woman. While many people opposed equal rights for women and abolishing slavery, she supported these things. (11) Her being a woman who was also an abolitionist and women’s rights activist in the 19th century was a dangerous and frustrating task. However, she continued to try and make a difference in society by fighting for these changes. Clearly, Elizabeth Stanton had to be confident to speak to crowds and to publish books with very bold ideas that supported women.
“Governor John Winthrop of Massachusetts is here discussing the wife of the governor of Connecticut, and his feeling that this woman has violated the roles rightly reserved for women by participating in “manly” activities. He believes her violation of “her place” has driven her into madness”, meaning the woman broke the rules of doing a many activity that she wasn 't supposed to do. This supports my claim that is was not a land of opportunity for women because, this means that during when woman were in colonies they mostly worked their whole lives, meaning that men were against women doing manly activities which she should of been doing when she broke the law, but the women should of been able to do manly activities not just teach kids or do child care. This quote “i’m obnoxious who disagree with women doing manly activities they should just sew, the disease a woman poet, a good poem from a women just means stolen or lucky”, means that men were against women poets because they thought if a woman wrote a poem it must of been lucky or stolen so they didn’t care about women and what poetry they wrote. This supports my claim because men were against any manly activities women did such as poetry, if women wrote poetry the men thought that it was just luck and or it could 've been stolen.
She also left us “love, hope, the challenge of developing confidence in one another, thirst for education, faith, racial dignity and so on. Mary was a dignity and so on. Mary was loving, compassionate women from what I know. She cared about everyone in need of an education and till this day her legacy remains. The school she started still stands way different than she left it.
Her stubborn and prideful behavior pushed away her father when she wanted to marry Brampton, her embarrassment of Bram’s actions made her leave, and her disagreement of John marrying Arlene caused her to lose John. Which all these experiences have left Hagar to grow wary that the girl’s attitude would annoy the boy if she kept acting so demanding in the game.
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.
