Antigone is very ambitious. She shows this trait when she seeks to give her deceased brother the proper burial, which was against against the law and defied the King of Thebes, Creon. She confronts her sister for help, “Ismene, I am going to bury him... Creon is not strong enough to stand in my way” (Sophocles). This shows she is ambitious because she knows that burying her brother is against the law and that there would be major consequences. She continues with the plan because she believes that her love for her family overrules the law.
Unwittingly, it is an epiphany that the Narrator would later recognize. The memory is as distinctive as in her mom 's own account: "His sibling got slaughtered when he was somewhat more youthful than you are currently". His dad does not talk about it since it was excessively difficult. Demise in view of the shade of one 's skin is only a horrendous truth in the contemporary circumstances. In this way, when the mother kicked the bucket, the Narrator accepts the accountability of dealing with Sonny however one of his second thoughts would be not listening enough to Sonny who is very enthusiastic with music the way he trusts "one must have much enduring to have the capacity to sing flawlessly" and along these lines, any person must listen more mindfully to music.
Her lies are less a thought of her own character and more a reflection of her husband’s surroundings .She does feel the need to keep up her self –respect, while satisfying her own needs. Again, her lies established the fact that how stressed she is by the opinions of her husband. The patriarchal setup of the play and gender roles are being broken as she is destroying the strict rules and by deciding to go out of family. She says that Torvald stops her from eating macaroons as they will destroy her teeth as well as her beauty, she still eats the macaroons. The limitations didn’t stop her from satisfying her own pleasures and she refused to obey through harmless actions showing that she strongly desires independence, but is too afraid to raise her own voice.
Cassius’s jealousy leads him to tell people to go against Caesar which obviously leads to Caesar's assassination. As acting as a jealous child, one may tend to speak bad about those who are against them, which is what Cassius gossips with Casca, “Let it be who it is. For Romans now / Have thews and limbs / like to their ancestors, / But—woe the while!—our fathers' minds are dead, / And we are governed with our mothers' spirits. / Our yoke and sufferance show us womanish.” (I, iii, 1-85) Cassius talks down Romans by comparing mothers and Romans saying that mothers have no backbone and rarely make change or speak up just like Romans when it comes to Caesar being elected as king. Cassius envies Caesar because even though both are equal, Caesar is more respected and honored because Caesar had defeated Pompey.
The other, Grendel’s mother, has killed many men to protect her son. For example, she would do anything for her son.

Men want to be known for being strong and protective. During Act 3 Lady Macbeth questions her husband's manhood and calls him a coward, Lady MacBeth said “ ... Feed and regret him not,- are you a man?” (III.IV.72). Lady Macbeth says that to her husband because she wanted to push him to do dirty work that she planned out in her head. Only because she knew his kindness wouldn't just let him kill for no reason at all. As you can see that her doing forced her husband to kill the king and she felt better of herself because she was able to talk him into doing what she wants.
While Dewey Dell and Cora follow societal standards since Dewey Dell allows men to control her and Cora takes on her assumed role as caretaker of her husband and children; Addie Bundren defies patriarchal ideals by maintaining her own desires and confirming that motherhood and wifehood are not fulfilling. Truly, female attitudes towards the principles of a male dominating society differ within As I Lay Dying, which demonstrates how although manipulation can be employed to restrict the freedoms of people within cultures, there will always be admirable people who defy societal
By reducing him to nothing but his manhood, Lady Macbeth causes her husband to feel as though he must prove himself to be a man once again. Secondly, the use of her lower status as a woman is especially relevant when she is able to lead any forthcoming suspicions away from Macbeth, because no man would ever believe a woman capable of such diabolical nature. This is especially evident when Macbeth goes off on a tangent and admits to killing the guards. Sensing that her husband is acting loquaciously, as he reveals information that could potentially lead to suspicion thrown upon them Lady Macbeth professes that her delicate female sensibilities are affected. Immediately Macduff says “Look to the lady”(II.iii.115).
Martha the significant other of George uses manipulation and intimidation to push her husband to have greater success. George is more reserved then Martha tends to be.

Again both these women live through their husbands success and since George is not a a very successful man, Martha finds away to live through other men because she cannot have success herself due to the time period when women weren't really aloud to have much of a say with anything. Martha learns of Nicks accomplishments one of those being in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf Martha is very impressed that Nick had received his masters at such a young age.

Therefore he beat him up until his mom jumped in his place and got beat up instead, she would do anything for her children. This quote is relevant to the novel because in the beginning of the book O-lan was working for The Great House of Hwang, however, she never talked about it unless it was for her children’s sake. Wang Lung was surprised to hear that then reason that his son was misbehaving was because of women. O-lan suggested getting him a slave, however, his father would not allow that.

The most painful of these words arrives at the end when her son proclaims that the child she raised is not the same anymore. This marks his transition from boyhood to manhood: a transition in which the male perception of female inferiority grows stronger. A mother loves her son, and in modern times there are family disputes; however, they are mostly out of spite for parents in general, not out of misogynistic
