This shows that despite how passionate her efforts are, she will always be discarded as a mere ‘entity’-a substance that nobody values. Consequently, her frustration is seen when she has an explosive outburst: “Think I like to live in that house alla time?” Such rhetorical questions imply that she is intelligent; being fully aware that the men will not answer but continues to taunt them, harnessing their guilt. Alternatively, it indicates her negative feelings towards the house since the emphasis on ‘that’ suggests the lack of love she possesses, and instead is resentful. Equivalently, she refers to it as a ‘house’, not a home. A house is a building with no emotional attachments to it, unlike a home.
Curley’s wife is the only woman on the ranch, and none of the ranch hands will talk with her, out of fear of dealing with Curley. Curley’s wife is unhappy with her marriage, talking to Lennie about her dream of acting saying, “If I'd went, I wouldn't be livin' like this, you bet" (Steinbeck 88). The other ranch hands are convinced that she’s looking for trouble, when she really just wants to talk. She expresses many times how she is not happy with Curley, since he controls seemingly her every move. In a different time period, much later than the 1930s, Curley’s wife would be able to pursue her acting career without the constant pressure of a man who controls her.
Atwoods that the handmaid’s do not really have any power in the Red Center and they never will, not even the will to speak around higher gender roles. The Red Centers rule was surrounded by the thought of, if you do not do as told there will be consequences. The consequences are known as teaching the handmaid’s a lesson. For example, Aunt Lydia explains, “Why did God allow such a terrible thing to happen?” and the handmaid 's reply, “To Teach her a lesson, to teach her a lesson,”(Atwood 72). Nevertheless, handmaid’s were convinced that what ever happened to them was for a lesson, the people controlling them embedded that into their heads.
“Ain’t even funny” creates irony as her morbid undertone allows the reader to see her dangerous capabilities, creating tension as she jokes about a serious matter. This presents Curley’s wife as cruel, however, we can also sympathise with her. This is because we can see her loneliness and isolations highlighted in the fact this is the only human interaction she receives. Curley’s wife’s mentally fragile as she is consistently dehumanised by the idea no one wants her opinions or thoughts on anything because she is viewed as a possession rather than a person, like many in the
497). Creon does not care about women's well-being and his behavior is unreasonable. The author, Sophocles, explains that the role of women is complicated due to Creon’s hatred of women, Ismene’s role is rational and compliant, while her sister, Antigone’s role is one of bravery and defiance. Creon’s hatred towards women causes Antigone's bold action that leads to her death. Creon states, “Then go below, and if you must be loved, love them!
She refuses to follow the traditional norms and standards in which women are expected to be servile and passive, as Ibsen puts it; “she really wants to live the whole life of a man “.In the play Hedda Gabler, Hedda tries to go beyond the limits. Under the mask of Feminism, she is having masculine goals, she wants to be authoritative, govern the world and rule over people. But she never ever permits herself to be ruled by anyone nor even her husband. On Brack’s suggestion of her love for Tesman, she responds in the play as “Faugh–don’t use that sickening word!” (p. 27). For her love is something ugly and
He resents his mother because she did not hesitate to remarry immediately following the passing of King Hamlet; in Hamlet’s eyes, she cannot live independently because she is a fragile, powerless woman as all women are. Hamlet says, after complaining about Gertrude’s hasty remarriage, “frailty, thy name is woman” (1.2 150). His judgment of his mother’s character led to his generalization of all women being frail and helpless. Hamlet extends this judgment to his evaluation of Ophelia’s character. He believes that because she is female, she must be deceitful and adulterous.
This shows that, Curley’s wife feels excluded and because she is different from all ranchers, in terms of sexuality, she has no power and self-respect. On the other hand, a ranch is no place for women to live in. She 's terribly lonely and feels useless as there is nothing for her to do. She wants somebody to talk to and someone to share her stories with and everybody on the ranch refuses to listen or come near her.Curley 's wife clearly states this in the following quote, “I never get to talk to nobody. I get
The idea that woman should do the proposing is likewise very unconventional for the time period. Another fact is that Mina Murray is able to save Jonathan’s life. Jean Lorrah claims that “the weak woman who sees feminism only as a fad does not have the strength of the real “New Woman” to use sexual aggression as Mina does, to save the man she loves” (33). A woman’s place was at home she was considered as ignorant of intellectual opinion. The foregoing stands in opposition to to Mina, because she is independent.
Her inability to live without using magic is a form of her possibly “unconsciously, rejecting the life of a submissive woman dependent on her husband”(3). Bewitched “dispels the notion of the husband as all knowing and always right than to promote the image of the wife as fully equal and autonomous” (Keng, 3). The show is “about the growing power of women in both home and society at large in the 1960s. It’s a show about how men weren’t sure how to deal with that” (Keng 4). Keng also mentioned that Samantha can be seen as an oppressed housewife, but since she chooses to stop using her powers her ability to make that decision/choice is “the very essence of feminism” (4).
It is unknown if she has left the family or not, but it doesn 't look like Meri is focusing on her marriage to Kody right now. As The Inquisitr shared recently, Kody Brown has been allegedly courting at least one more wife, and the other wives are livid about this news. The rumors are that there will be a spin-off show that doesn 't include Kody Brown but has the wives and kids in it instead. At this time, this has not been confirmed, but Sister Wives being renewed hasn 't either.
