He is verbally and physically abusive towards his wife, Stella, in order to establish his power over her. He is described as giving a ‘loud whack of his hand on her thigh’ to which she merely retaliates ‘That’s not fun, Stanley.’ Whilst ‘the men laugh’. This shows how abusive behaviour towards women is normalised and accepted within this patriarchal society as the men simply choose to ‘laugh’ along with Stanley. It also highlights Stella’s submissive nature, and how she conforms to the sexist societal expectations of a helpless and fragile woman.
This can be seen by Cassio when he fights Roderigo, befriends Desdemona and sleeps with Bianca. The fight between Roderigo, doer of Iago’s dirty work, and Cassio gets Cassio’s position of lieutenant revoked. Cassio allows for Iago trick him into drinking, where he gets so drunk that he fights Roderigo, who Iago set up to pick a fight with. If Cassio had seen the reason in not drinking, because he knows that he has “poor and unhappy brains for drinking” (Shakespeare II.iii.30-31), he may have not fought Roderigo, but he completely ignores reason, and drinks. After his position is taken away, he asks Iago for advice on how to get his job back, and Iago suggests that he befriend Desdemona.
