Relentless and obedient is what makes Macbeth who she is. She will do everything in her power for her husband to gain the same status she has and “Yet do I fear thy nature/It is too full o’th’ milk of human kindness/ To catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great,/Art not without ambition, but without/ The illness should attend it” (1.1.15-20). This soliloquy is written about the ambition of her intentions.

It brought women to the fore and gave them a role to play” (67), this quote is proving that a Creon is limiting one of the few things women were allowed to at the time of their society, which was for Antigone to bury Polynices. This is the reasoning for Antigone not denying that she buried Polynices; she was taking the consequences for what she believed was right and knew it would make her brother and the gods proud (459-540).

Eventually forcing woman like Hagar to become good house wives and live lives that they did not necessarily want for
I totally agree with Mill, I believe that sacrifice must have a well-intended meaning and that its ultimate goal is to increase happiness, not merely produce more misery and sadness. In my culture, it is the women’s duty to sacrifice for her house, husband, kids, and every one of her extended family as well; that is what my mom did. I refuse this concept of sacrifice as it turns women into sad, depressed, and bitter creatures that are so drained that they have nothing left to offer. We must sacrifice but towards happiness, not towards duty. Additionally, Utilitarianism necessitates the person to be a fair spectator between his happiness and that of others and “To do as you would be done by.” In correlation with my social identity, I believe that every human must follow this golden rule and live by it to achieve social justice.

We also know that she gives the answer, which nobody were able to argue its accuracy, to the question what women want. From that we can also deduce that she is, in fact, “a mistress in the game of
