Also, she inflicts the beating of Juliet when she brings Lord Capulet into the room so Juliet can explain why she does not want to marry Paris. While her daughter is being slapped she simply observes and does not even slightly intervene to protect her only child who is begging on her knees. The Nurse, however, demonstrates her true love for Juliet as she steps in and confronts Capulet. The Nurse says, “God in heaven bless her” while pleading, “You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so” (3.5 176, 177). Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child.
In a way, Shakespeare is implying that when women are allowed to make their own decisions and do what they want, it never results in anything beneficial. Gertrude chose her new king and in the process contributed immensely to the downfall of her son, Hamlet. On the other hand, Ophelia, Hamlet’s lover, is the perfect model for a young lady in those days. When her father advises her to steer clear of Hamlet, she immediately obeys him. She does what she is told, not questioning why, but accepting that that is the way that things are to be.
She constantly seeks reassurance and acceptance of her two navels. Yet she understands how most people find this idea unnatural and repulsive, attempting to arrange for an operation to get one of her navels removed, but stops, realizing that living in her illusion provided her with more “safety and happiness” than what living in reality did. She initially resolves to permanently live in her illusions: in the context of escaping reality and the troubles that come with it, Connie continues to evade the problems that chase her (her mother Concha and her husband Macho). It is worth noting though, that Connie succeeds in escaping her problems, as in the time span of the novel, Connie never physically meets Concha or Macho, the two major sources of her problems. This then corroborates Connie’s idea of escaping reality as an effective solution (at face value) to dealing with her
Pavla Chudějová in “Exploring the women’s experience” states that since Cordelia cannot compare to her attractive and talented older sisters, she makes great effort to keep up appearances in fear of being considered “disappointing” (Cat’s Eye 73). As Cordelia cannot adjust to the social expectations required in her family and in attempt to liberate herself from the constant surveillance performed over her, she refocuses her gaze to Elaine. Elaine presents an easy outlet for Cordelia’s frustrations because she is completely unaware of gender restrictions (43-44). As noted earlier, two events demonstrate Cordelia’s cruel treatment of Elaine. The first incident occurs when she digs a hole in her backyard and the three girls bury Elaine alive in it.
Furthermore, the practical idea of the medical institution was to keep her away from becoming more ill, but in the end, it was rather destroying her more as she faced the truth of the inner reality of her life. Finally, the short story concludes with the narrator still trapped inside the secluded room. The setting emphasizes the narrator’s life by showing internal graduation of frustration that was going through her mind. As a result, Charlotte Gilman provided evidential clues from the text to distinguish and make clear of the setting. “The Yellow Wallpaper” verifies the understanding of the setting and cultivates the perspective of the characters.
Nora lies and cheats out her friends and family in the beginning but then learns to use her superego in the end. She goes through act one listening to her id and focusing on her desires. Throughout the rest of the book she becomes more aware of her superego. She becomes more rational about her problems and chooses the best possible solution. She becomes a strong independent woman by leaving her husband because she felt she protecting not only herself but her family as well.
Once the beginning of the story took effect, the nurse shares her perspective on Medea to herself, giving valuable evidence to further strengthen the thesis. As written, the nurse stated, “And she hates her children. . . She is a deep thinker, you know, and she will not put up with this kind of abuse.
She must live up to them, especially now that she is Queen and many people look up to her. She begins to feel guilty for what she has done and realizes her actions can never leave her or be undone. Her behaviour as she sleepwalks causes the doctor to diagnose her as having a mental disorder, and only a priest can help her. It can be foreshadowed that Lady Macbeth's ego would attack her as she always taunts Macbeth into doing the dirty work and does not do it herself. Furthermore, her sleepwalking represents her unconscious mind.
Caroline catches a fatal scarlet fever as a consequence of caring for Elizabeth. When Elizabeth catches the scarlet fever against the family’s advice and aware of her likely death she still sacrifices herself, something that Victor never does for any of his family members. As part of her dying wish she asks Elizabeth: “you must supply my place to my youngest children. Alas! I regret that I am taken from you; and, happy and beloved as I have been, it is not hard to quit you all?
She sees the amount of pain Madame Ratignolle is in, how gruesome the scene is, and she makes the comment that she regrets attending the delivery. This serves as a lesson to Edna in many different ways. This was her first big realization that during her pregnancies and deliveries, she did not experience the real pain. Her pain was numbed by chloroform which played the role as an anesthetic. Edna then looks back at her feelings towards the birth of her children.
A few weeks later, she began teaching it to her students. Teaching rhetoric, logic, algebra, and chemistry among other studies, Catharine found the books to be unsuitable to teach her students the way she desired and instead began to write her own. Even more groundbreaking, Catharine taught calisthenics to teach women proper physical education because she believed society’s view imposed poor views of health by promoting fragility, tight corsets, and poor diets. Even though Catharine advocated proper health, she had numerous nervous collapses and was treated in sanitariums frequently in her life. Catharine authored multiple treatises and books, including, A Treatise on Domestic Economy, The American Woman’s Home, The Moral Instructor for Schools and Families: Containing Lessons on the Duties of Life, and The Duty of American Women to Their Country.
He has loved her through it all, but in the end she leaves him, but we all know that it was for the best. Natalie was extremely dynamic.

She entered this program from jail as a way to keep her unborn child. More programs such as this is desperately needed in order for these women to form a foundation to build upon to one day understand themselves that they too are somebody and can be whatever they work hard for. In the film Healing Neen, trauma is the main theme that has affected so many in the system. Many women reveal the feelings of hopelessness and being powerless. They feel as though they are worth nothing and they do not know how to make good decisions for themselves because the drugs are considered an effective numbing treatment.
