She also helped give women rights with her quotes like “Look like a girl, act like a lady, think like a man, and work like a boss.” and “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” Her quotes like these and the actions that she took for the women’s right movement is what changed the minds of men and women all across
In nearly every era, expectations have been widely expressed and acknowledged. Whether or not people chose to adhere to different standards was their choice, most likely depending on how attainable the ideals were.

The females not given the opportunity to receive an education crave the opportunity to learn because they know education can lead to a brighter future.
Analyzing their personalities individually (Peacemakers, Hostesses and The "Monster"), have all demonstrated different tasks to the society of Beowulf and the plot. Readers have discovered that the stereotypical views of women are present. However, the women show a great deal of independence, strength and violence. Their stereotypical characteristics start to disappear once you analyze and realize their importance to men.
