Have you ever tried to fight to protect your sister or cousin from a bad guy who is judging her by her looks? This is what happens in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Hate and judging people is still around today just like it was in Romeo and Juliet. Hate is the worst thing that everyone will have to deal with at one point in their life. For example in the play, Tybalt, talks about the family feud while at dinner and he can tell Romeo is a Montague.

Throughout the book, Jaimito is controlling his wife's actions and constantly questioning her, which doesn’t cause him to seem like a great husband or even a kindhearted person. His actions seem to directly result in Dede being depressed and wanting a divorce. Another result of Jaimito’s behavior is that his wife’s sisters begin to disapprove of him and believe that Dede’s life would be better without him.

This idea of female freedom, however, is not embraced by the male characters, who feel it threatens their masculinity: “It was they who were embarrassing us” (4). When Lengel, the “kingpin” of the A&P takes notice of the girls’ actions, he quickly steps up to protect his masculinity. In removing the girls from the A&P, he is attempting to put them back in their established place.

Furthermore, Feminist Criticism provides a better view of literature because it shows that women can be powerful. When Emilia finds out that her husband has been plotting an evil plan she says,” Tis proper I obey him, but not now”(Othello V.2.195). Emilia refuses to help her husband after she finds the cruel intentions he has despite the expectation of women always being submissive to their husbands. Women also have a voice and feelings, they are capable of defying their husbands commands when they know what he expects is simply wrong. In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles).
