Anuja Sharma Kanika Dnag Thesis paper 23 October, 2015 Battle for equality Gender discrimination refers to biased treatment, based on gender. Many people misunderstand the concept of gender and often relate it to sex. Gender and sex, though often seen related, are actually not synonymous. According to Lorber (1968) sex is the state of being females and males; meanwhile, gender refers to women and men.
The New Nation takes form, 1789-1800 Document 9-3 This document encompasses the frustrations of Judith Sargent Murray on inequality of man and woman that attracted the attention of George Washington and John and Abigail Adams. She is disappointed to learn men are dominantly superior to women in all cases in the society.

She blames the difference in education is the main cause of judgment in sexes.
Difference feminism claims that women are not entirely equal, when they actually are. Pollitt’s logic leads to the realization that difference feminism massages their ideas; they are not doing women any good.
It’s no surprise, that Shakespeare’s Macbeth was clearly constructed as a rebellion against femininity roles of the time. During the Elizabethan era, women were raised to believe they were inferior to men since men obtained desired masculine qualities such as strength, and loyalty, whereas women were viewed as figures of hospitality (1; 6; 28-31). Obviously, not being tempted by the luxury of subservient women, William Shakespeare rebuked this twisted belief, applying that women deserve more respect than their kitchen tables.
On the contrary, the traditional viewpoints of romantic love cause males to be to some extent misogynistic or mistreat women. Most of the main male characters tend to see them as a prize to “win” through romantic gestures, rather than genuinely having an emotional connection and a love that is more kin deep. In Shakespeare’s King Lear there are very few main female characters, only one is presented in a positive way. Despite this, all three female characters are “handled” in the same way. As McAlindon (1991) states, “King Lear “indicates that main source all injustice in society is the loss of human kindness and imaginative sympathy.”
All of the above strongly confirms how he sees the female gender as inferior to men and how he uses his gender to dictate what he wants from her. He displays annoyance towards her modern views and also finds it funny that she wishes to become a doctor once again highlighting the stereotypes men has towards women. This clearly suggests that the play was written at a time when women are not very driven into bettering themselves because they are conditioned to thinking that they have no other place in male dominated society other than being wives, home-makers and mothers. All these statements
This grew; I gave commands; Then all smiles stopped together, there she stands as if alive.” The duke’s true crude personality is revealed at the quote because he is showing off how at his command the Duchess’s life was extinguished, then he turns back to the portrait to admire all things. From the reader’s assumptions, we can assume that the crude and envious duke killed his own wife. In conclusion, the characteristics of the duke in Robert Browning’s “My Last Duchess” are envious and crude.
They are several examples of inequality between them with Jane describing how she felt belittled by him and was constantly being put down. When speaking to Rochester he also says that girls must worship the men- showing gender inequality. Also when Rochester tells Jane that he was going to ask Blanche to marry him, he did it only to get her jealous. He wanted to infuriate her so it could build up his self-esteem and do something for him and not for her, As you read Jane Eyre has a ton of gender inequality in it, it is a main theme in the novel and shouldn’t be over looked. It is shown when she is a young girl, when she is naïve and doesn’t understand that she is able to not follow the norm and do what she believes in.
In the story, the relationship between Antigone and Creon is very important and contrasts greatly. If they had found a way to resolve their differences, the story may have ended differently. The tension between these two characters is based on Creon’s actions and thoughts in regard to Antigone’s brothers and the brother she buried. Creon left Polyneices, her brother, to rot outside of the city. He commanded that if anyone buried Polyneices, they would be put to death.
Correspondingly, Creon's bona fide adherence to the laws of man is evident in the defense for his resolute actions. In the conversation aforementioned between Haemon and Creon, the latter defends his decision by declaring it is to "respect his own authority". As in his opinion, a respected ruler who is in the early stages of establishing authority must be uncompromising and resolute in making decisions. Creon rejects using divine laws to rule his people for they are irrational, and trusts that solely following man made laws will he be able to guarantee a peaceful and prosperous existence for his city. Creon says that the laws enacted by the city’s leader "must be obeyed, large and small, / right and wrong."
Throughout the first and second scene, the theme human law versus divine law separates the two main characters Creon and Antigone, creating a deep conflict between them. At the beginning of the play, despite of the state and the human law, which Creon made, forbids her to do so, Antigone determines to burry her brother, Polynecies. She says to Ismene, “Creon is not enough to stand in my way. ”(15). Antigone believes that Creon has no right in the matter of burial, because it is part of the divine law and she believes divine law rules over human law.
