I give myself where I choose. If he were to say, ‘ Here Robert, take her and be happy, she is yours’, I would at you both” ( Chopin 108 ) . Edna questions the submissive nature of females in society by not wanting to be similar to those females. She does not want to be like a robot who only does what her husband wants her to do.

Even when her husband clearly didn’t love her anymore, she still wished for him to change his mind so she could stay. She didn’t even know what to do when she wasn’t under his control. Although Desiree didn 't have autonomy when it came to her husband, she did choose not to go home after leaving.

She gains knowledge, a control over her emotions, a sense of her morals and religion, family, and financial independence. Having gathered all her pieces, Jane molds the strange girl from the red room’s mirror into a free woman. She becomes an independent woman and escapes the psychological snare of the red room and its successors: “[she] is no bird; and no net ensnares [her]: [she] [is] a free human being with an independent will” (volume 2 page 18). Hence, she goes to Ferndean and marries her love, Mr. Rochester. She marries him because she is independent and the two can now be equals - Jane “is [her] husband’s life as fully as he is [hers]” (volume 3 page 281) and they both complete one another.
The words of a women were not completely disregarded as unimportant or insignificant, at least not legally. If a woman is being abused or neglected by her husband, then she has the right to leave him. However, this right is only granted if the woman has been “careful” and is not at fault. It a woman wishes to leave her husband but has wasted her house and neglected her husband, not only is she not allowed to leave him but she is actually supposed to be thrown into the water and killed. If a husband neglects or abuses his wife, there is no mention of killing him; the only consequence for abusing his spouse is that she is allowed to divorce him and get her dowry back.
Like Sayoko, she always follow her husband, she always doing the things what her husband wants and letting herself to hide what she really wants. In this story, we could analyse that Yasunari messages us that a girl is very fragile, that every girl is very weak to show her emotions and afraid to fight what she wants.

She had let her husband kick and beat her because she cannot fight back to him well maybe she loved him that much. But as we continue to read the letter of Sayoko, we could see in the end part of the story, Sayoko had regret the day that she let her husband abuse her, and in that part we could analyse that every person gets blind and numb when they are in love and they are so very weak and soft-hearted.
