However, she is made to transition into a domestic role. For the largest part of her youth, Fermina Daza longed for independence and rebelled against her father, and once again when married, “she felt herself losing her mind, as the mad woman [screaming] in the asylum next door” (207). Marquez metaphorically shows the way Fermina is unhappy in her house, but also the way she is controlled. As a result of male influence, her freedoms are being deprived and she is being forced into a domestic role she dislikes. However, her unwilling adaptation to this role is then
Dimmesdale and Chillingworth both have secrets that make them look and act differently, their secrets affect their character and how they do their job. Dimmesdale is the father of Pearl but he doesn 't want to face the same humiliation as Hester did for his sins. Because of his secret he self punishes and fasts, he also preaches better than he did before although his health is failing.

He is only to be reminded that they are not only unsupportive but also dysfunctional. (Ultimately his frustration is compounded when his wife is able to acquire the money from her parents.) Weiner does a good job of lightly presenting an aspect that sits in your subconscious - that perhaps the women in this show are the smart ones and the men are to be pitied and disrespected. Despite their patriarchal positions within the company, they repeatedly are shown up by the women and rescued by them. All of the main female characters, despite being in subordinate positions, repeatedly end up saving the day (Betty carrying off the birthday party despite Don’s absence, Peggy coming up with the good ideas at the Lipstick meeting, Joan running the office, Trudy getting the money to buy the apartment).
For Nyasha it is obvious that as a woman, she should have every right to do everyday things. For instance, she comes home late one night after spending some time with her cousin Tambu, her brother Chido and people of the opposite gender. This results in her father having an outburst of rage and condemning her to whoredom. Nyasha then defends herself after Babamukuru hits her by “punching him in the eye.”(117). Nyasha is a passionate person and since it is self-evident to her that she should be able to have a fun night out with her friends, rebellion against a surely unjust punishment comes natural to her.

However, Nora reveals some secrets to Mrs.Linde, a childhood friend where she admits to the fact that she forges her father’s signature in order to acquire some money to pay for her husband’s expenses during his period of illness.

He demonstrates to us that the patriarchal framework propagates dangerous imbalance, particularly material to the two standard that characterizes the foundation of marriage. Euripides disorders with business as usual, for case, permitting Medea to guarantee as her own particular already held selective male rights. Euripides also pointed the theme of passion and anger when it came to Medea, Medea has amazing conduct and compelling feeling for her lover Jason, she sacrifices a lot for just being with him like cheating her family and fleeing away from her country with him.
