Chopin was influenced by strong female figures from the beginning. Chopin was close to her father, who encouraged her free spirit, but she grew up in a matriarchal family when her father died in a railroad accident when she was only 5 years old, in 1855. Chopin’s mother never remarried. “The O’Flaherty household became a matriarchy, run by several confident, independent widows: Chopin’s mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Victoire Charleville” (Larrabee). Because of her influences, she grew to develop habits and views that were ahead of her time and were outside of a woman’s social role.

An example of this is they did not seal off the crime scene when they got to the house, or immediately after the body was found. The police and detectives also did not take statements right away from Kyla Ramsey’s family, Kyler, kaylie, and Kasen Ramsey.

Guinevere said that Merlin had made a brief appearance in Camelot a week and a half prior—long enough to drop off some letters for her and Gaius and leave without so much of a word to anyone else. That pained him too—that neither he, nor Percival, received a letter. There was still so much unresolved between them, so much he wanted to ask...but he hadn 't a clue where his old friend was or if he 'd ever appear in Camelot again. He made it to the royal chambers and knocked.
Another reason why Connie why wants to be independent from her mother is because she does not want to be like her. “Her mother went scuffling around the house in old bathroom slippers…” ( Oates 616). Connie’s mother is an image of the future Connie doesn't want -the life of a domestic housewife. Lastly, you can see that Connie has a love-hate relationship with her other, with whom she identifies, but at the same time she has to distance herself from her mother in order to establish her independence; “Sometimes, over coffee, they were almost friends, but something would come up – some vexation that was like a fly buzzing suddenly around their heads – and their faces went hard with contempt.”

In the early 20th century women were not considered to be murders. This changed in 1982 when Lizzie Borden became publically known for killing her stepmother and father in their home located in Fall River, Massachusetts. Many people believed this murder was the most notorious murder in America due to the abundance of press. Countless people were not so much surprised at the crime committed, but at the person that did the crime. The article Forty Whacks, Forty Whicks stated, “This murder was so significant because of the brutality of the crime and the fact a woman was accused of it, most people do not associate this kind of bloody crime with a woman”(HittJ,1).
In an attempt to influence the jury, the prosecution and defense of the Lizzie Borden trial utilized female stereotypes in intricate ways. Understandably, the defense applied the public labels for women to convince the jury that Lizzie Borden could not possibly commit murder, let alone kill her own father and stepmother. The defense’s main goal became proving that Lizzie Borden’s actions and attitudes fit the stereotypical description of a Victorian Era woman.

Lizzie Borden was an example of a murderer that escaped all of the charges against her.
