Due to his manipulative ways in the relationship, the women resulted in fighting and calling each other inappropriate names. In a relationship, there should not be a manipulation of either sex. In reality, ladies should withhold a positive image and carry themselves with dignity. As for Joseline and Mimi, they both seem to fall short of behaving in a positive manner. Due to Stevie J 's manipulation, the women were sucked in by negativity, which is an example of abuse.
I think the monstrous theme to point out would be just the Wife of Bath. She was a monster within herself and had evil tactics in which her mates never picked up on but were naïve to her wrong doings. For example, “I got the best of each one, finally, By trick, or by force, or by some kind of thing” (page 113). These monstrous tactics she did to lure her mates in by getting them drunk enough to be incoherent and then lie about all of the wrong things that were done to her. Which in turn she would use to her own advantage to get what she wanted out of them.
I just feel robbed” (Rankine 27). Her outrage was also demonstrated on page 29 where she yelled: “I swear to God I’m fucking going to take this fucking ball and shove it down your fucking throat, you hear that? I swear to God” (Rankine 29). Here the “angry black woman” stereotype is fully realized with the actions by Serena. Although she had a justifiable right to be angry, one must remember that her actions are being amplified simply because of her race which doesn’t fit the historical form of the sport.
He refers to her as two faced and thinks of her as a sexual object and whore. Ophelia had to deals with these two expectations of her and was never able to make any decisions for herself. She is too obedient and drives herself to madness because she can’t find any equilibrium. From the characteristics of Gertrude and Ophelia, you can see that women in the 1600’s were viewed as co-dependent, weak, and are held to unrealistic standards while being continuously degraded. It is made obvious that the culture in which a piece of literature is cultivated in effects the writing greatly.
Joves’ unwelcomed assault left the young maiden traumatized, filling her head with overcome feelings of misplaced guilt and shame, although the attack was in no way her fault. Callisto became despondent even among her fellow huntresses: despite physically being there, her mind was absent. When it came time that she could no longer conceal her pregnancy, Callisto was ridiculed by the hunt and Juno. Diana showed no pity for the girl, refusing to hear her out, or even allowing her to bathe near them as she proclaimed for her to “not defile this water or us” (45). The punishment for her actions resulted in the metamorphosis of Callisto into a bear.
Anti Feminists continued to degrade and dehumanize women creating tension between the nation. The Philadelphia Public Ledger and Daily Transcript wrote, “ every true hearted female will instantly feel that the Seneca Falls Convention is unwomanly” this specific ledger sent the message that if a women is actually a women they should know that this convention was nonsense. This degraded women and hushed their voices. The statement shut women 's ideas out by saying to just go along with what everyone else thought about women. There was no reason that the Seneca Falls event was unwomanly.
In La Journée de la Jupe, I would argue that Sonia Bergerac is considered to possesses the ‘outlaw’ emotions as expressed by Alison Jaggar in “Love and Knowledge: Emotion in Feminist Epistemology”. As Jaggar states, “people who experience conventionally unacceptable, or…. ‘outlaw’ emotions, often are subordinated individuals who pay a disproportionately high price for maintaining the status quo.” (166) We can see that Sonia is one of these subordinated individuals because Sonia is obviously mistreated by her students, who barrage her with sexist and racist abuse, often violently. This led to her taking her classroom hostage, which eventually led to her death, making her an “individual who pay(s) a disproportionately high price for maintain the status quo.” (166) These ideas also help explain how Sonia’s students eventually came to understand and support her point of view because, “conventionally inexplicable emotions, particularly though not exclusively those experienced by women, may lead us to make subversive observations that challenge dominant conceptions of the status quo.” (167) These emotions led her to make observations and state facts that challenged the dominant ideology within her room of students, affecting their status
This statement of women fully cements the fear of women and their portrayal as deceitful tricksters that is consistent throughout Nevskii prospekt. The narrator refers to the women in a bitter tone, warning the reader against them. The women are portrayed in a dehumanised manner. Keeping in mind the female characters until now have also served as instruments of deception, leading Piskaryov and Pirogov into their traps, women continue to be reduced to a collective symbol for the traps bringing men to their downfall through manipulating their sexual desires. The betrayal present throughout the story has not only come from Nevskii prospekt itself, but also from women.
The main theme of The Crucible is vengeance. The people of the town of Salem weren’t united. They were distrusted towards each other and disliked each other. The girls began accusing other people they disliked for dealing with witchcraft during the court trials. For example, even though the
Furthermore, Melinda criticizing her physical appearance is a sign of how she mainly criticized and changes her clothing or way of looking due to she had major physical damage of being raped making her don’t want to remember the “Melinda who was raped.” Also, this caused a huge emotional and physiological depression where she can’t stand alone; she needs to speak up. Lastly, the action of Melinda needing to put the mirror away just because she can’t bare herself is a sign of a deep depression because of the lack of confidence and battle between herself. This means Andy Evans sexually assaulting her was the reason for her depression at such a young
In the story “So I aint no good girl” by Sharon flake, in every scene, it show how rude and mean she is. Like when she was fighting another girl. Why is she so mean to the other girls? Sharon wants nobody to talk to her “boyfriend”. She doesn’t herself a good girl because she isn’t a good girl.
In a 2013 speech to the UN, Malala said, “[The extremists] are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women scares them,” a statement comparable to Irene’s tone throughout the entirety of the memoir that speaks to the ultimate strength of femininity. She even remarks on how a flirtatious, “girly” attitude can be used, “[to] destroy your enemies” (Opdyke 246). Furthermore, both Malala and Irene suffered for others; a thirteen year old Yousafzai survived a bullet through the skull, and Gut prolonged separation from family
