Sexism is obscenely visible in his very own, Hamlet. Sexsim is the prejudice or stereotyping, typically against women solely because of their gender. In Hamlet, Shakespeare shows absolute disregard for women when he uses Lord Hamlet as someone who blames women for his sanity, by making them seem weak, vulnerable, and submissive due to the time frame, and using women for certain topics or occurrences needed to keep the story going.. In Hamlet, Lord
Whether it is small jokes or her usage of figurative language, Kaling cannot help but bring her down: “I’ve always been extremely bad at anything athletic” (Kaling 21). Kaling’s hyperbole exaggerates that she is “extremely” bad at being fit, but no one can be that bad at anything. She’s just not suited for sports and does not like them. Obviously, Kaling must have a mirror to prove her that the body she has obtained is perfect for her and anyone else she meets. Just because sports are not her forte does not mean that will affect how she sees herself.

In the Iliad, there are continuous examples of women being treated as an object or being treated materialistically. Women are treated as they are inferior to the men and the gods. The dictionary definition of being sexist or sexism is; prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex. Essentially women are shown to have no power in the Iliad due to the dominance of the men and gods. The book is centrally based upon male dominance, and on how the women are constantly put down by the gods or overruled by them.
The definition of a sympathetic character is one whom the writer expects the reader to identify with and care about, though not necessarily admire. In the novel, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, Curley’s wife, a main character in the book is blatantly portrayed as an unsympathetic character. This is because they only see her through the men's eyes, who only see her as a tiresome object, owned by her husband. Steinbeck’s portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair and misogynistic because he only displays her as unintelligent and promiscuous, never has a character have a turning point where they realize she’s more than an object, and he never reveals her true name. The first reason that Steinbeck's portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair is that he never gives Curley any redeeming personality traits, he only depicts her as unintelligent and promiscuous.

She would also be happier and would encounter occurrences much differently.

This perspective allows her to be successful in her career field as well. Contrary to this, Rachael’s cocky and shallow perspective does not allow her to analyze situations from a deep perspective. For example, she is always thinking short term, such as when she brags about how she had several husbands. Her attitude, does allow her to be successful in her business. It does nothing to better her character, though, causing her to be the most uneducated and naive of the three.
Little parts of her body faded away” (45). The prostitutes see Pecola as beautiful and without the ugliness that shrouds her. Pecola does not think this way, instead believing that only those with blue-eyes and the right facial features can achieve beauty. “They know I’m rich and good lookin’” (53), says Miss Marie, one of the prostitutes. Even though Miss Marie knows that she does not hold true physical beauty, she pushes aside the mask of ugliness forced upon
