In act 1, scene 5, when the ghost commands Hamlet to seek revenge, Hamlet first curses his mother “That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain!”. Women were expected to instantly obey any male in the family and Gertrude follows orders without hesitation, most likely in fear of being punished she says “I shall obey you” in Act 3. The women in Shakespeare are consistently loyal to the men in their lives, no matter what the circumstances, which is not fair at all to women. By saying women must be loyal to men, even if they treat them poorly makes women completely lesser to men and allows them to walk all over women. Men all over in Hamlet share the same opinion on women and believe their actions are okay.

Lady Macbeth is an important character in William Shakespeare’s play, “Macbeth”. In the beginning of the play, Lady Macbeth seems to be the ideal woman whom a man prefers to encourage Macbeth to achieve success beyond boundaries. Lady Macbeth is empowered to go beyond the boundaries set up by the society for a woman when pushed to stand firmly and take decisions like a man who is the head of any family. Lady Macbeth is a tactful wife to Macbeth, to whom provides ultimate support and help, though not geared by love but greed. (Shakespeare 36)
Contrary to popular belief, Lady Macbeth is not an evil character. She is simply a misguided woman who is extremely determined to have her way. Although she took a lot of wrong turns, she did realize in the end that what she did was horrifically wrong. Lady Macbeth was not a bad person, She only wishes greatness for her husband and also wants to be part of his greatness, though she does let her guilt get to her in the end. During the play, Lady Macbeth only wanted to help her husband achieve greatness- even if it meant she would have to murder some people.
Early on in the play Lady Macbeth was characterized as a ruthless person, but later on in the play the audience softens up on her because she reveals her weak side. Lady Macbeth was a ruthless person, and no one expected it because even today in society women are not associated with evil characteristics, she demonstrates this when she continuously insults her husband. For example, when Macbeth changes his mind about killing Duncan, Lady Macbeth scolds him, and insults his masculinity and persuades him by saying that he owes it to her to kill Duncan. She uses this tactic of persuasion, by targeting Macbeths insecurities; this is very ruthless because Lady Macbeth shows becoming royalty over her husband’s dignity.

Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a
Elizabeth Proctor was true to God, her husband, and family. At the beginning of the story, she and John Proctor, her husband, were known as the best judges of character. As the play continues and the plot unfolds, she and her family became the resounding examples of their judgments. This occurs when Elizabeth finds out that her husband has been having an affair with their housekeeper, Abigail Williams. We, the readers, can infer that John had an affair because of Elizabeth’s cold, emotionless, and detached attitude.
Lady Macbeth in the beginning of the play is manipulative, most of the times she manipulates her husband into doing either what she wants or what she thinks he should do. For example, when Macbeth does not want to kill Duncan anymore, Lady Macbeth convinces him by saying “from this time such I account thy love. Art thou afeared to be the same in thine own act and valor as thou art in desire? (I.vii line 38-41). Besides, the audience see Lady Macbeths is influencing her husband’s feelings by she is using her love as a weapon because she is saying do it
According to researchers, every 16.2 minutes, at least one person attempts suicide. Suicide is never the answer, but there are multiple characters in today’s literature that show the impact of the events leading up to the ultimate decision. In William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia takes her life because of the actions the individuals around her did. But, that is not the argument.
