The beauty of this play lies within the fact that neither the professor nor Carol is right. Ultimately, both characters are deeply flawed. Throughout the play they scarcely agree or understand each other resulting in the most dramatic conclusion. Oleanna can be interpreted in two distinct ways, dividing audiences between those who were angered by what they perceived as fabricated sexual harassment charges used as a tool to gain power and those who viewed the image of a crafty, manipulative woman as an attack on the right of women to defend themselves from improper sexual proceedings. In addition, at the time of the play 's beginning exhibitions, numerous analysts saw an association with the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings and its not difficult to perceive how this may have roused the thought behind this play.
Arlene Stein’s book “Sex and Sensibility” is a literary masterpiece that develops the framework of content that was essential towards explaining the rise of the lesbian movement; though solid in its message, Stein’s bias is recognized throughout the text, she was cognizant of issues and factors that affected the movement but she fails to piece together the entire spectrum. Stein captures three fundamental factors displayed throughout the text: (1). The recognition of new sexual identities and their associated orientations (2). The separation of the Feminist and Lesbianist movements, and (3). The differentiation of the “Old Gay” and “New Gay”lesbian identities.
On the other—it could be supposed that the blood stands for menstruation. If it stands for the period, the homosexual lovemaking act becomes even immoral than before: from the religious point of view, the sexual intercourse during the menstruation is a mortal sin (Delaney 19). The plea to “come quietly” is in such wise the only single act of obedience, the speaker of the poem agrees to be hushed by the society; but not to follow the religious rules and oppress her sexuality. Images from the news present another layer of narration. News report on physical assaults on a woman: and it demonstrates that it is the part of “The necessary, / daily litany” of life in Ireland as the Angelus.
In 1982, Umbartha, a Marathi film contained hints of a lesbian relationship between two women of a remand home. Flesh and Paper (1990) by Pratibha Parmar was a short on the Indian poet Suniti Namjoshi who is a lesbian. Fire (1998) by Deepa Metha was a latter attempt in emphasizing the plights of lonely women entrapped in miserable marriages and limited by conventional norms. However, it awakened a hornet's nest in India, a country where gender equality is a notion unheard of. The Malayalam film Sancharram (2004) by Ligy J Pullappally beautifully depicted the confusion and dilemma of two village girls recognizing their sexuality.

Many objections to the novel were on the basis of Holden’s use of profanity and mentions of sexuality and sexual exploration, all of which were taboo, especially for women, at the time in which the novel was written. Evidence to support the censorship of The Catcher in the Rye is most often credited to Holden’s frequent use of profanity. Words as "bastard," “hell,” "goddamn," and "Chrissake”, all profane in the society of the 1950’s, were incorporated regularly throughout the novel; a word count claims that The Catcher in the Rye is composite of 785 profanities, including 27 Chrissakes, 7 hornys, as well as numerous damns, craps, and hells (Andrychuk, Sylvia. "J.D. Salinger 's The Catcher in the Rye.”).
