Queen Isabelle had a small town role, but a very large effect on the court case. She was also the influence behind some of President Van Buren 's decisions over the case. She had different reasons behind her opinion on the case. At this time the Queen was only thirteen years of age and most of her diplomatic opinions were very much influenced by her royal advisors. One of the Queen 's arguments was that the treaty between the United States and Spain, Pinckney 's Treaty, should be enforced, this would have helped her fight to keep slavery.
This shows Lady Macbeth going through lengths just to become royalty and this shows she is ruthless because she is only thinking about herself. Besides, the idea of dashing out the brains of a child deliberately shows Lady Macbeth is willing to killing her own blood, which is cold because usually mothers have a stronger and more intimate bond with their babies. Therefore, Lady Macbeth is shown as a ruthless person, who is very controlling, however there is a shift in her character at the end of the play, she becomes weaker. In the beginning of the play Lady Macbeth manipulated Macbeth into doing things he didn’t want to do, by targeting is insecurities (his masculinity). But, now her persuasion no longer works on Macbeth, for example at banquet Macbeth was acting crazy and Lady Macbeth challenging his manhood by asking him if he were a man.
In their defence they often reference to her small talks with Macbeth, where her opinions often surpass his (1; 7; 72-74). But, it’s clear that Lady Macbeth is no feminist lady. Throughout the play, she is viewed by the audience as a selfish female character, consumed with ambition to successfully bring the witches prophecy of Macbeth becoming king into reality. Unlike, Macbeth who tends to carry out his deeds holily, Lady Macbeths ambition completely disgraces the definition of feminist, believing regicide of faithful leader King Duncan is the way to gain power. Macbeths strong values, belies and attitudes of King Duncan, created a series of doubts towards Lady Macbeths idea, since.
Moral corruption is the impairment of one’s principles of right and wrong and inability to act justly. Lady Macbeth is driven by her motivation which was far more than that of the creature resulting in her moral degeneration. Lady Macbeth’s actions are based on her ambition and are not a result of influence in contrast to the creature .Shakespeare’s character Lady Macbeth is the more morally corrupt fictional individual Lady Macbeth and the creature are overwhelmed by motivation.

The realisation of her mistake strikes her with 'terror ' and leads to the admission "We are more afraid of you than of these others" which Madame calmly receives as a compliment.(A Tale of two Cities. P. 178). Madame Defrage can best be described as a female who lacks femininity. Symbolically, Madame Defarge stands for the intensity and bloodthirst behind the Revolution. She embodies in its most absolute form the inevitable release of what Schiller terms the crude, lawless instincts of those repressed politically and
Women’s writings before Woolf, were timid and mostly fearful from true expression of thought and emotion, fearing male dominance; they were disabled and unable to attain their true potential and express themselves the truth outwardly. For Virginia Woolf, women writers are the key to incinerating such male patriarchal thought and recreate history through a female perspective. Confronting the imperialistic set up of the English Society proves to be difficult but shows women often failing but still continuing to challenge and seeking an outlet of expression. Woolf’s communicates such trials in subtle manners through her work, pointing out that Women’s Oppression through the times, like mentioned earlier, is deeply rooted in Social, Political, Economic spheres of a society.

Durn the American Revolutionary period women played a very vital but often overlooked role. Women made a huge difference with their contributions made towards the war efforts. They successfully boycotted the purchase and use of British trade goods which was successfully contributed to the dedication of colonial women’s willingness to alter their consumption of imported goods. Some women rallied to publicly denounce the purchase of goods such as in Hannah Griffits; The Female Patriots, Address’d to the Daughters of Liberty in America where she writes “Let the Daughters of Liberty, nobly arise, And tho’ we’ve no Voice, but negative here, The use of the Taxables, let us forbear” and “That rather than Freedom, we’ll part with our Tea”.

Kardashian is a contemporary example of blatant sexism, but also living proof that a woman can control the outcome of actions. I am not arguing that she is the epitome of academic knowledge, but Kardashian is an intelligent businesswoman that was able to, like Hester, swamp stereotypes and build an empire out of rubble. Society argues that Kim is “only famous for her sex tape,” or “famous for nothing,” but the reality is, those statements dilute her achievements, reducing her to a sexual object; in the same way, Hester was dehumanized, seen only as the letter ‘A.’ Kim Kardashian’s luxurious life resembles a belief in David and Goliath, that your demons can be manipulated in your favor. Her initial launch into popular culture was controversial, but Kardashian turned herself into multi-million dollar cooperation. Hester did not reach this sort of wealth or fame, but she was able to conquer the restraints that were put into place to conform
