The famous opening scene of violence in which the novel begins, is with John Reed’s attack on Jane, and Jane’s counter-attack, associated with the moment of rebellion as well the autonomy with the dispute and confinement in the red-room. Jane displays and puts up a courageous defiance to Mr. Brocklehurst, as being the answer to his question about where “evil” children are being sent off after their death. The scene, especially if we were to put it into context with the later part of the novel, emphasizes her power of will to stand up to a man, based on her beliefs. The violence in turn, has led her life to Lowood which provide her with a supportive environment to express herself and her beliefs. In the figures of Ms. Temple as well as to Helen Burns, Jane finds the relief she is looking for and the ability of discovering herself.
Women had one role in society to please their husband, take care of the children and handle the financial assets of the home and to think otherwise was ridiculous. Not only are women looked down upon they are treated horribly. We see this though the character Calonice in Lysistrata when she says "Suppose they grab us, drag us into bed" (159) Calonice was scared to stand up to her husband fearing he would rape her. Women we were seen as sex objects and we obliged to do whatever is told to them. In Lysistrata, the roles of women are reversed.
This description is already showing how the other characters view her and maybe even the readers, as someone who is inferior to many others, thus causing Shamhat to be taken advantage of. A piece of evidence from the story that shows Shamhat being taken advantage of, is when the readers are first introduced to her in the story. When a trapper of the wildness, is stricken with fear of the first sight of Enkidu, he asks his father for assistance, and this is what he says, “My son, there lives in Uruk a certain Gilgamesh. There is no one stronger than he, he is as strong as the meteorite of Anu. Go, set off to Uruk, tell Gilgamesh of this Man of Might.
This underlying tone that money is only okay if it is respectable arises within Frank’s communication to Vivie, with Frank going so far to say that “if [Vivie] ever put your arm around her waist in my presence again, I’ll shoot myself there” (Shaw 1812). This ridiculous and hyperbolic claim calls further attention to Frank’s disrespect for Mrs. Warren in that his fragile masculinity has been so attacked by her disapproval of marriage that he feels the need to influence Vivie. This conversation points out the irony in Frank’s thought process, where
The thought of revenge on a "birbaro marido" (1564) who has committed adultery after his marriage to her, entices her into believing that "los imposibles parecen / ficiles" (1566-67) (Everett W. Hesse 1997) . While she occupies herself with the thought of a secret revenge, she is overcome by the fear of the Duke 's justice and so restrains herself for the present, convinced that "... mayor fuera / mi desatino, si diera / puerta a tan loca pasión" (1573-75) (Everett W. Hesse 1997). In the second act Lope portrays Casandra in a warm and sympathetic light, Casandra tells Lucrecia that the Duke spends nights away from home, that it is all you can expect from men that the world allows it, she proclaims that he spends none of his nights with her and that she would be better off as a simple farmers wife ‘en aquella humilde esfers como en las camas reales se gozan contentos tales que no les crece el valor si los efectos del amor son en las noches iguales’(Everett W. Hesse 1997). From this it is impossible not to feel sympathy for Casandra, she has been forced into this horrible marriage by her father a man whom she loves but evidently can no longer trust. She has lost all faith in men due
Lady Macbeth questions Macbeth’s manhood when he had doubts towards killing Duncan, saying “When you durst do it, then you were a man; and, to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man”(1.5.46-48).When Lady Macbeth’s ambition to be queen begins to overpower her morals and her ability to see the wrongs of her actions, she becomes furious that Macbeth is not as driven to kill Duncan as she is. Lady Macbeth also acts as an instigator when she exclaims “I have given suck and know how tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me. I would, while it was smiling in my face, have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this.” (1.5.55-60) to Macbeth, guilting and pushing him to murder Duncan. She insists that Macbeth promised that he would be king, and that he needs to kill Duncan in order to take the throne and fulfill his promise to her, because she would go to just as drastic of measures to fulfill a promise to him.
In the first Act she states, “Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty. Make thick my blood. Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between The effect and it” (I, v, 30-37). This speech she gives is crucial to her character development in the beginning of the play. What she is saying in this speech is that she is tired of her husband being weak and wishes that she could be a man.
On the other hand, slavery did have some different effects upon men and women. Women suffered the consequences of sexual abuse. Jacobs relates such abuse: "Soon she will learn to tremble when she hears her master 's footfall. She will be compelled to realize that she is no longer a child. If God has bestowed beauty upon her, it will prove her greatest curse.
“Now piercèd is her virgin zone; she feels the foe within it. She hears a broken amorous groan, the panting lover 's fainting moan, just in the happy minute”(Jon W.). Women are raised in a battlefield; they are taught to rely on men to protect them because they cannot protect themselves. This is an insult to many women everywhere, and it is a problem with society. If women were portrayed and viewed more independent, we could change the world we live in.
Many men in the book reserve the right to beat their wives and insult their intelligence simply because they’re having a bad day. Joe considers his home a refuge made comfortable by Janie and when the reality doesn’t live up to his expectations he takes out his frustration physically on his wife. Men in the novel seem to have some level of domestic violence as a means getting out their frustration. In the Book “Their Eyes Were Watching God” Zora Neale Hurston uses physical and emotion situations to show the oppression of women. In the book there were many example of oppression of women but the submission of women, the intellectual level of women and the beating of women are especially uses throughout the book.
Once the idea of witchery took deep root into the hearts of the people, many were accused and arrested. Out of the selfishness of her heart, Abigail accused Elizabeth Proctor of witchcraft in an attempt to be rid of her so she could have John. She kept telling herself that she was in love with him, and she would use any opportunity to her advantage to be rid of Elizabeth. This however, would not bode well with John.
Court officials need to regard the safety of women who go to the court justice system for protection orders. These women experience stalking, threats, emotional terror, and physical injury. Every case needs to be taken cautiously in fear of might becoming an actual threat; the severity of having too many fatalities. Domestic violence advocates should remind survivors of what to do if the offender violates the protection order. All the people involved need to continue forward and keep in mind that they are making a difference in a person’s life; even if a protective
