Also, party hard Dina, who breathes to stir up trouble, is to “Girls Trip” one-of-a-kind breakouts who oblige grand burglary in almost every scene.

Brianna, your point about the change in the protagonist’s focus is interesting; I like that you recognized a clear moment Mrs. Ames shifts her focus from catering to her husband, to instead working with the plumber instead (as she ignored the professor calling out, and instead descended the stairs with the unnamed worker). I completely agree that we even see a physical change in her as she begins the story with little thought to her appearance, and then vanity begins to reawaken as she takes note of the state of her hair, as you mentioned. I believe this tell-tale sign of flirtation may have been in response to the plumber repeatedly holding eye contact with the astronomer’s wife (another flirtatious gesture, whether unconscious or an affectation).

The initial setting of the play immediately identifies Martha as a housewife who, as pertaining to the time period of the plot, satisfies the stereotype of women in the early part of the twentieth century. Primitively, readers rightfully assume Martha Hale is another conventional female of her time: property and inferior. Martha rushes unpreparedly out of “her kitchen, [which] was in no shape for leaving,” to meet her impatient husband. While complying with the submission of the era as she rushes to her husband and her worry as to the state of her kitchen, Martha Hale is defies the expectancy of a simple-minded and
Alice reacts to her mother’s disapproval by asking, “who is to say what is proper?”. She implies that people blindly accept and act on what is expected of them by stating that people would likely wear a fish on their heads if suddenly it was expected to be socially pleasing to do so. The characteristic mentality regarding a woman’s place in society typically called for obiediance and unquestioned acceptance of their roles and thus deviation from such norms was seemingly (unheard of) and went fiercly untolerated.
“Who, in this tired and overworked family, would have had time to give more attention to Gregor than was absolutely necessary? The household budget became even more smaller; so now the maid was dismissed;.... They carried out absolutely everything that the world expects from poor people, Gregor's father brought bank employees their breakfast, his mother sacrificed herself by washing clothes for strangers, his sister ran back and forth behind her desk at the behest of the customers, but they just did not have the strength to do any more. And the injury in Gregor's back began to hurt as much as when it was new” (Kafka 33). The Samsa also sold their jewelries.

Ridley Scott’s ‘female buddy movie’ Thelma and Louise centres around issues of male dominance and the freedom of release from society. Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) are women suppressed by the men in their lives. They take a vacation to escape for a few days and after an attempted rape and murder they end up fugitives on the run for their lives. This unintended event ends up being for them the best adventure of their lives, as they are able to divest from the rules of society and become the independent women they are. By subverting the traditional role of gender in the genre, the film shows how feminism impacted the film industry by challenging Hollywood and the gendered myths and social patriarchy, providing women with a voice, and changing how spectators view how women are looked at through women’s eyes and their experiences.
