Lady Macbeth was a ruthless person, and no one expected it because even today in society women are not associated with evil characteristics, she demonstrates this when she continuously insults her husband. For example, when Macbeth changes his mind about killing Duncan, Lady Macbeth scolds him, and insults his masculinity and persuades him by saying that he owes it to her to kill Duncan.
