In “Hatshepsut”: His Majesty, Herself by Catherine Andronik, She informs the reader about Hatshepsut and her role as an effective female Pharaoh in ancient Egypt. One supporting detail proving her leadership was she acted as a regent, “an adult who could take control of the country.” Another detail is in paragraph 11, the text states, “She appointed officials and advisors; dealt with the priests; appeared in public ceremonies first behind, then beside, and eventually in front of her nephew.” This quote explains the idea that she was a leader. Thirdly, another detail is she was a smart and effective Pharaoh. In paragraph 12, the text states, “There is no reliable record of exactly when or how it happened, but at some point, Hatshepsut took a bold and unprecedented step.” This quote explains that she was a smart ruler because she did it by surprise. Also in paragraph 13, the text states, “These women had not ruled long or well, and neither had had the audacity to proclaim herself Pharaoh.
In the end, Hatshepsut was ruling Egypt in all but name.” says in paragraph 9. This shows even in her role as a regent she was a successful leader.

Maat, that crucial cosmic order, was important to Hatshepsut.” This shows that by doing something that was favorable in the people shows that Hatshepsut was a good ruler.
Her speech was effective considering it was said by Diana’s ex-mother-in-law so she is a credible source to listen to about because she personally knew her. The Queen’s interaction with the audience was to tell them to remember how she lived young and free, not how she died in pain and
Second, we’re going to see how Shakespeare uses characters Lord and Lady Capulet, as well as the nurse to show us parental love. Finally, he uses the love of Romeo and Juliet as an example to show us true love. In Verona, status and honour seems to be an important aspect for the wealthy families living there like the Capulets and the Montagues. But what is status and honour? It’s your respect, pride and your social status and Lady Capulet is a good example of someone who shows us these traits.
Vestal Virgins: Commitment To The Fullest Vestal Virgins were perceived and viewed as an ultimately central organization and Roman’s very survival depended on the chastity and legality of the Vestal Virgins who were considered more significant than all of the female cults and priestesses in the Roman society. The Cult of Vesta was formed in 715 B.C. by King Numa Pompilius who was the most religious of Rome’s seven kings and managed to withstand the Cult of Vesta over thousand of years.

They were owned by their fathers, and then handed over to their husband to be owned by him. They dedicated their lives to serving men and acting according to their will. This notion of the transfer of custody from a father to a husband is still practiced in today’s society in many forms. However, there is a great difference from then and now in the way in which women are able to pursue their own interests and goals.

In actuality, Zelda bore a resemblance to Rosalind because Zelda too was independent, did what she yearned to do and expressed her viewpoints without inhibitions or restrictions (Solomon). For her, women such as Rosalind must be admired because of their courage, their recklessness and spend-thriftiness. The first quarter of the 20th century saw several young women in America as “flappers” because it was a craze adapted by all. F. Scott Fitzgerald said that the character of Rosalind Connage resembled his own wife and thus “the original American flapper” was in reality base on Zelda herself
