On the negative side, boys are more willing to rape her. To prevent this from happening, Sally’s father forbids her from talking to boys. At this point, it becomes extremely ironic. Her father tries to protect her from abuse by other boys, only to beat and abuse her himself. The father’s love turns out not to be so loving after all.
Women were robbed of this criminal dismissal and instead pressured to find a man whom was socially worthy to provide for them. " 'She confessed to me that he 'd managed to impress her, but for reasons opposite those of love. 'I detested conceited men, and I 'd never seen one so stuck-up, ' she told me..." (Márquez, 29). Society told women and men alike to marry despite their actual feelings because love had no true value over tangible items.
“‘Except when he’s drinking?’ asked Atticus so gently that Mayella nodded(Document B).” Readers can assume that this quote is trying to convey that as a result of Mayella’s gender, a female, she is powerless and incapable of defending herself against her father, who is always beating her up when he is drunk. “We don’t know but there is circumstantial evidence to indicate that Mayella Ewell is beating savagely by someone who led exclusively with his left hand(Document B).” As stated in the last two sentences, this sentence is saying that Mayella is physically weak because of her gender, therefore, she was too feeble and could not fend herself from the savage beast, her father, that harmed her. “Mayella looked at her father, who was sitting with his chair tipped against the railing(Document B).”
Dapperwit represents someone who understands the foolishness of placing supreme value on physical beauty yet finds themselves doing it anyway. As he falls to the ground in defeat he states "… A living death I bear…" (Rape of the Locke, 567). The "living death" that Dapperwit bears is realizing his foolishness in being captivated by the woman's physical features despite the knowledge that it will hurt him in the end. The next character introduced is Sir Fopling.
As stated previously, the British majority held dear to their hearts a haughty sense of nationalistic pride, revolving around their supposed moralistic and intellectual superiority (Murder). Naturally, in such a society, occupations such as prostitution were looked down upon heavily, which did not help to ease the impacts these murders would have on women. Jack the Ripper went rather quickly from being a murderer to a sort of boogeyman in the eyes of the British population (Engelhart). The murders served as a cautionary tale to women who dared to walk the streets alone, and a means of “keeping them disciplined” (Still Public). A direct result from these murders was a phenomenon that still happens very, very often today: victim blaming (Our Jack).
Enraged by her betrayal “Well, know that I’ll produce a better son than you. You’ll feel the insult all the more when I adopt one of my slave boys, and grant him your wings and torches, bow and arrows, and all the rest of the gear I gave you (Golden Ass V:28-31).” In the midst of her rage she punishes Cupid, by stripping him of what makes him divine, and threatening to give all powerful gear, to a slave. He disregarded a godly, maternal order and for that Venus views him as nothing but a lowly slave. Cupid is not the only one punished for this act; Psyche is also met with the wrath of Venus.
Christine feels that she and her husband, but also other African Americans, are discriminated against. She does not show any fear for standing up for this fact even though it could have ruined her husband’s reputation and almost put a stop to her marriage. As much as she is against racial prejudice, her obsession with is leads to her unintentionally letting race define her. Christine understands what her ancestors have gone through and accepts this heritage as a part of her, however it becomes a little bit too much and she herself appears as this prejudice person that hates all whites and finds them harmful and
The knight even gets away with his crime despite how horrific his action are. The knight ends up receiving a consequence by having to marry an old hag. These two stories are inappropriate and obscene especially towards women. Both “The Miller’s Tale” and “The Wife of Bath’s Tale”are enough as a story but, “The Pardoner’s Tale” is appropriate and the most useful to listeners. “The Pardoner’s Tale” meets both requirements for the competition with its moral and entertainment.
The women are the rightful owners of the reader’s sympathy because they had often felt what Mrs. Wright had, the men had wrongfully acted in disrespect, and the women were written off as unhelpful before they ever had a chance to help. Because of the feelings of the women and the actions of the men, this case would grow cold and justice would not be
Antigone’s efforts to execute her will on Creon and his men resulted in her being viewed as weak. Creon asks Haimon, “Is a woman stronger than we?”(Sophocles 218). His question clearly implies the sexist and patriarchal values and beliefs ingrained in him just like plenty of men at that time, which is that women are subservient to men and that’s the way it should be. Creon goes on to call Haimon an “adolescent fool!”(Sophocles 221), all because he defended Antigone’s actions. Ironically, Haimon admits to finding Creon’s wisdom more valuable than his marriage; even the nicest of men have their biased perceptions of superiority.
Mariam and Laila are forced, by punishment up to execution, to remain loyal and patient to their husband and while in public. Even while the alternative is cruel, “Mariam chewed. Something in the back of her mouth cracked”, Rasheed demonstrates his lack of compassion by leaving her to“spit out pebbles, blood, and the fragments of two broken molars”. (p. 104) Enduring injustices like this are nothing short of common for women in developing countries.
Mother tended to blame others for the Airedale’s actions. Muggs bit Ms. Detweiler in the leg. Mother put arnica and told Ms. Detweiler that it was only a bruise. (Page 4). Muggs bit the Congressman who was going to see farther for a business.

Regan’s use of ethos, logos, pathos was to make an emotional connection to the families of the Challenger Seven, and to the citizens of the United States. President Regan establishes his credibility and trustworthiness by his credibility as the President of the United States and saying that the Seven were seen as heroes. Regan says, “but they, The Challenger Seven, were aware of the dangers, but overcame them and did their jobs” (Regan 2). Regan wanted the people of the US to know how brave these The Challenger Seven really were. Regan than follows with this quote, “we mourn seven heroes: Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe” (Regan 2).
