It 's quite sad, really. Selling herself, she reminds him of her devotion, backseat antics and how the other women he may be entertaining would ignore him if he wasn 't successful. In a similar vein, on "Love Drought" she pouts "Tell me, what did I do wrong?...Am I not thirsty enough?...Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me...Them old bitches so whack, I 'm so tough, what 's up?" The part of me that goes to Bey to feel unaffectedly invincible can 't deal with all of this pleading, playing the comparison game and what I call "auditioning" (i.e. selling yourself; if your value isn 't immediately seen and always respected, you probably shouldn 't be around), but I digress.
Lucy Steele, Mrs. Ferras, John Dashwood, they all value money and wealth more importantly than love and family. These characters however are able to get what they want. Throughout the novel the reader cannot like them but at the end, such a dislikable character such as Lucy Steele paradoxically chase what she wanted from the beginning, showing that she does not have honor or dignity. Also Miss Glanville in the Female Quixote gets what she wants. It cannot be considered a real happy ending because Sir George Bellmour does not love her but she gets what she wants, that is him.

We have all been told at some point in our lives “be careful what you wish for”. This old man foretold ironic events to follow Alan if he purchased the love potion. It showed that women don 't really have much of a choice in relationships, if a man likes you, then you have to like him; even if that means getting put under a spell. Men think they want a women that can be controlled and monitored in everything they do. Men do not want a woman who have other dreams and ambitions other than being his loyal wife; but if the woman is around “too much” she is considered a nag.
(Miller 69) Apparently, women were viewed as the “weaker vessel” to men. Supposedly, women were misled easily, tempted by flattery and gave into temptations because of they have more delicate souls. (Miller 64) To continue, marriage was viewed as the key to a stable society. Everyone in the colonial community must marry or else the society will become unstable. Additionally, after a women married, everything in her possession became
in Turnbull 197). After the novel failed to achieve the commercial success he so much desired he wrote: “Women do not like it. They do not like to be emotionally passive.” (ibid. 507) Fitzgerald consciously gives them secondary roles in the story, which keeps with the traditional view that women do not have a voice. Though these women have tremendous effects on men, which are often detrimental, they are portrayed as “mere complements” to the men(Mardsen).
Nieva and Gutek (1981) bring up two explanations for the fact that women miss out on the opportunity of having a mentor. First of all women are perceived as people who lack perseverance and are presumed to have an unreliable career commitment. Many male sponsors assume that women miss the drive to engage in a long-term professional involvement. As sponsors expect that their grooming and support will encourage the protégés to build on the foundation they created (Nieva & Gutek, 1981). Also, women are less aware of the fact that a mentor can open a lot of doors and can be very beneficial to their future career and progress in an organization.

Many people are willing to go to the extent of lying about themselves to a man or a woman to impress them. In the novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald creates contrasts and similarities between Gatsby and George Wilson. They are not the type of person their partner wants to marry, Gatsby made as much money as anyone could ever want but he still lacked the class that Daisy expected and required. No matter if matter if you’re wealthy or poor, if you become someone you are not others will always find out who you really are. Gatsby and Wilson were both desperate enough to try and win over the women they loved by being someone they were not.
Many of the sailors were accurately portrayed by their actions, by throwing slaves into the ocean, flogging, beaten, tortured, and other forms of cruel punishment. “Alexander Falconbridge was a surgeon on slave ships in the 18th century. An abolitionist and governor himself is guilty of all the violent attacks towards slaves. A disgraces to human nature, and profound language were brutal examples sailors often used towards slaves.” ( First Hand; Accounts Study). This is an example of history because many crew members hated slaves, which clearly bleeds through their thoughts and language.
Malala Yousafzai once said, “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.” Identifying the value of free speech is made far easier when it is not respected. In patriarchal societies women are often ignored or written off as unimportant. Especially within the social structure of the warrior culture, the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of women are discredited. By becoming consciously aware of the lack of respect given to them, the women of Greece, Troy, and even Goddesses reclaim their power within a society actively damning them to be silent and weak. In The Iliad, by Homer, the characters Helen, Athena, and Hera assert that women may not have power, but by embracing the roles given to them, they are able to leverage their
