She never considers how the stress she puts on him wears his life away; she only cares about spending time with him for her own enjoyment. She withholds him from going home to Ansit while dreaming about scenarios where she herself is his wife. This again goes back to the idea of Orual’s intense jealousy and possessiveness. However, these fantasies and dreams that she entertains herself with serve to prove how Orual cares about Bardia. She loves him, causing her to try and keep him for herself.
This realization is what inspires her decision to rebel against society’s standards for her.

Her pursuit of revenge and will of making 'corpses of three of her enemies' flips the whole scenario as well as her characteristics. By this time she becomes a distinct character and no longer remains a typical woman. This clearly shows the hidden strength of a woman which was suppressed by men. Medea seems to oppose this ideology and she does so by transposing herself into a man disguised as a

She was amazingly resentful and felt bamboozled by a spouse, who at their wedding, had guaranteed to be close by at unsurpassed. This was the guarantee, she said he had broken while alluding to her children's "trickster" question. What is imperative to note down however, is that even though she said things like he was a swindler, who had broken his guarantee and had lied and was bad a father or a spouse, she said it out of outrage. Nonetheless, when the Macbeth sent the murderers to slaughter her and her child, she instantly stood up to the resistance of her husband. Her child does too.
Pisters explains generally that “the concept of becoming-woman is understood as “a way of understanding transformative possibilities— the ways in which identity might escape from the codes which constitute the subject” (Pisters 79). The film begins with an unsteady understanding of Irene’s identity. It is assumed that she was invested in a marriage with fidelity and when her husband broke this, she was so distraught that she killed him along with Agustina’s mother. The act of killing her husband breaks her out of an old identity and now she is dealing with both the consequences of her actions and finding herself again. The investment she had in the marriage may have been a reason why she was blind to the violence her husband inflicted on Raimunda.
(207) Medea has definitely proved that she is misguided now, but the Chorus Leader still attempts to convince her not to go through with the murders. Medea replies, “It will hurt my husband most that way.” (208) Medea wanting to commit this act on the sole reason that it will hurt her husband who left her, shows what kind of person she really is. Before actually murdering her children, Medea does start to show some signs of uncertainty and remorse. She contemplates whether or not to kill them, for she really does care for them.
This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end.
Mildred Montag is Guy’s wife and another major character. She is suicidal and a shell of a woman. She takes all her entertainment in the form of her “family” on the parlor walls. She uses the “family” to escape her own problems and immerse herself in another world where everything is better.
Inez is not interested in men though, so this causes Garcin to be trapped in a revolving door of proving himself to a lesbian. Garcin is later given a chance to leave, in spite of his heroism, he decides to stay because of the psychological entrapment he faces with proving his heroism to Inez. Garcin’s choice to stay entrapped is a foolish, and nonviable solution. When facing entrapment it is best to leave the situation and continue your ordinary life. Ordinary life to Garcin is proving that he is not a coward, so maybe this was a perfect option for him, but I don 't think it is a psychologically healthy option for anyone, and it can lead to further mental health

Although the way she was acting was not considered proper, and was not the behavior expected from the newly, grieving widow. She stated, “I will live for myself,” which leads us to believe that until then she lived for her husband (Chopin 2). The “Story of an Hour” depicts the role of a woman as a servant to their husband. As if, they only lived, breathed, and functioned because of their husbands and their role as a wife. The readers can infer that Louise’s death comes from the exhaustion and devastation of thinking that she had gained her freedom and no longer had to strive to be a perfect woman that has to abide by society’s standards.
The conflict is probably the most important of what we have discussed so far. In “The Story of an Hour” the conflict is based on Mrs. Mallard and herself. She is fighting against the fact to be joyful about her husband’s death because she can be free; she is trying to mourn for her husband, “She was beginning to recognize this thing that was approaching to possess her, and she was striving to beat it back with her will--as powerless as her two white slender hands would have been.” (Chopin, paragraph 10, sentences 1-3). Despite that, her joy eventually consumes her, when Mr. Mallard comes home, she dies for lack of joy, or more accurately, she dies of shock, her heart is just too weak to sustain so much excitement at once.
