She even committed suicide due to the fact of how badly she needed to free herself from the Creole lifestyle. Edna, a remarkable lady in a sense, rebelled against the norms of society to openly be herself. People like Edna, or people brave enough to take a chance to change societal norms, come rare to find, especially during the late 1800’s. Edna never agreed to anything she did not want, after the marriage to Leonce, and was quite straight-forward with her desires. Edna, ideally, is a great role model to look up to in today’s world for filling that brave, young woman role to not let society shape her, despite the few occurrences she had intimate moments with multiple men or her carelessness towards her children.

Hytönen introduces Nancy Walker in his article whom notices that The Awakening doesn’t “promote women’s liberation or equality” because everyone else, except Edna and Mme. Reisz, accept and take pride in their housewife positions (88). Meanwhile Walker’s observation is true, in a sense, the setup presents the beginning of women being “awakened” one by one to the unequal treatment and manipulations they were obliged to by society. The third person point of view is important for the sake of permitting the reader to become aware of the reasons why Edna acts as she does, sexist prejudice. It exhibits both sides of this issue in the Victorian era: the “correct”
In all of society’s drama and solitude which is shown throughout this novel brings out the sympathetic side in all of us. Hester’s being an outcast is inflicted on her rather than her willfully seeking it out. Throughout the rest of her life, she is constantly seeking after relationships with other human beings on a base of honesty.

A Modern View of Feminist Criticism William Shakespeare 's "Othello” can be analyzed from a feminist perspective.This criticism focuses on relationships between genders, like the patterns of thoughts, behavior, values, enfranchisement, and power in relations between and within sexes.
