Chilling worth. She commits adultery with Mr. Dimmesdale who is the minister of the Puritan community. She accepts her mistake and she is publicly shamed in front of all the community for committing the crime. People standing in front of the scaffold passes hateful comments to her because they think she has committed a serious crime and she just stands on the scaffold carrying her daughter which is the result of her adulterous behavior listening to the negative comments passed on her. Hester Prynne is also made to wear the Scarlet letter ‘A’ on her chest which reminds her and the people of the Puritan society about the sin she committed.
Abigail first commits adultery with Elizabeth Proctor’s husband John Proctor. Later on, she accuses people of doing witchcraft which causes their life. Abigail Williams uses the Salem Witch Trials to put out all the resentment she has towards everyone. From this broad accusation, it shows how weak the human beings really are, and how greediness and to want for personal gaining. Many people die in the village after a series of lies and unjust practices.
Steinbeck shows, in Of Mice and Men, that during the 1930’s women were seen as secondary to the men through his detail in the men’s perspective of women, his character development of Curley’s Wife, and the lack of power that women had. In this time period, men had a very low perspective of a woman as compared to a man. To begin, most men deemed themselves primary and women as secondary. For example, this is shown in the book when neither of the two female characters in the book are given names. The girl in weed was never given and official name and neither was Curley’s Wife.
By spilling all these accusations, Abigail turned Salem into a boiling pot of rumor and hatred. Even more so, it’s sad to think that Abigail did all of it simply because she wanted John back, and was angry at Elizabeth for being kicked out. On page 1157, Abigail's accusations are put on display, “I saw Goody Sibber with the Devil… I saw Goody Hawkins with the Devil… I saw Goody Booth with the Devil!”. Abigail couldn’t control her mouth, and ran around town accusing and denying to her content. Alan Kazdin talks about lying, “It is unlikely that lying will be completely eliminated, but with the right encouragement, it can be dramatically lessened”.
This quote tells you that the people in the town made fun of her, hooting and jeering at her ugly looks and unwomanly walk. The interaction that she gets is from a man butch who that "captures" her, that words implies that he raped her. In the text it say, "Captured me after a brutal hunt." This quote tells you that one of the townsfolk raped her, a tragic memory that no one cared for the fact that she was raped. The people thought the worst of her without knowing the situation or what really happened to her.
The essay is about the minor shame of Hester and major shame of Dimmesdale and the tragedy in the novel. Hester Prynne has minor shame throughout the whole novel and how it is at the beginning and the end of the novel. It starts out with her in the jail after commenting adultery. Most of the time when someone commits adultery they are killed, but when Hester committed it all it was having to wear a red A. according to Kilbourne, the A shows shame to the people that know her but it made herself the most well-known person in the town (470). Every time she stepped outside she got shame and so did her daughter Pearl.
There is no doubt that women had an important role in victims' right today. Such a time when women were looked upon as inferior to men. Woman were subjects of house detail as they opinions never mattered. Their place was in the house, at the time most women were not given an opportunity to elevate themselves. Some of these opportunities were education, a right to work or just basic right to voice an opinion(Janet Zollinger Giele, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of Sociology, Social Policy, and Women's Studies, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis
Women are also stereotyped as stay at home mothers. There is an invisible restriction put on women by men that they can’t be a mother and have a full time job at the same time. Neil French, the WPP Group PLC executive stated women “Don’t make it to the top because they don’t deserve to” and that “women are rarities in the senior corporate positions because most are unwilling to make the personal sacrifices of time and energy required to be the boss” (Maich). The words spoken by this successful male go to show the inequality faced by women every day. Women have an even harder job balancing household obligations and a job.
Some men even go as to say that employing a women won’t change that she is women, which means, her physical state won’t be able to bear with the conditions that the mine has to offer thus will frequently be on sick leaves. 2.3 WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD South African is mining industry is actually lacking behind in establishing women and men equaulity in the work place compared to the rest of the world, stated by WiMSA (2014). It is only in the late 1970 and 1980 that few countries started to adapt the strategies of employing women into the mining sector according to l.layman ,2012, Murdoch University. 2.4 UNDERESTIMATING WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP POSITION It is a norm that most men practice all of the world that men are the ones who should always be in power, it is far worse in the mining industry as this industry is male dominated. This means women who are in leadership positions are finding it very difficult to be able to lead the males as they do not want to be headed by a women.
They were not allowed to vote while men took care of having jobs and paying any bills that had to be paid. Time has progressed and evolved that it has made and equal opportunity for women to not only run the household, work, make daily decisions for family and society, oversee the money. Women have sustained rough criticism within everything that may go in the world but are pushed by the drive to succeed. The role of women in society has been greatly overseen in the last few decades but now are coming to a more perspective to
