“Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word: Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee” – Lady Capulet (Act 3, Scene 5, Lines 129-130). Lady Capulet was an irresponsible mother who turned her back on her daughter when Juliet needed her the most. It seems very likely that Lady Capulet’s wedding was arranged by her family too and when Juliet rebels against this, she is against the kind of marriage her mother had. Lady Capulet is obedient to Juliet’s father and urges obedience from Juliet. Lord and Lady Capulet, although not directly killing Romeo and Juliet, prompted it from the
Hester is the exception to the rule, and perhaps the only character in the novel who lives by reality, rather than appearance. Throughout the novel, Hester encounters a barrage of disrespect and cruelty. Her own people shun her because she falls in love and bears her child a lover. From the first page of the novel, Hester is exiled and shunned, and is thrown into reality. Thus, unlike the characters around her, such as the sneaky minister or the greedy lovers, Hester is the one character who lives by reality instead of appearance.
God Help the Child opens with an abrupt beginning of defiance and self-identification. The novel starts with the voice of the mother, Sweetness, saying: “It’s not my fault. So you can’t blame me.

She discloses from the beginning a big dispute that happened between her and her husband because of the colour of the child, Lula Bride, that is not in her hands and cannot be individually controlled.
The two kids never did anything against their mother, but she holds are grudge that stands firm while she drowns. In an essay, Suzanne Green describes Edna's state of mind at the end of the novel as, "incensed that her husband and children presumed that they could “drag her into the soul's slavery for the rest of her days."". (Green) Green writes that Edna is "incensed" with her children, and quotes that Edna believed the kids were holding her soul as a slave. Edna was doomed to unhappiness from the beginning of her children's lives because of these thoughts. She holds an intense anger for the children and is convinced that they were keeping her in bondage and wasting her life.

Kant emphasizes the role of the moral philosopher to reveal the ambiguity about what it is moral to be crystal clear, and humans are rational beings who should strive for moral maxims motivated by the good will. Furthermore, he argues that human don not need a moral philosopher to show which action is right, we already know what he calls the common human reason. Kant favours to endeavor to do the right actions over the good actions as his attempts to portray the ideal world or the moral utopia. Kantian Deontology theory and the Categorical Imperatives frameworks urge decision-makers to strive for beneficence as a mean to resolve the challenging ethical dilemmas they face, obligating the decision-maker to act ethically and morally motivated by duty. The categorical imperatives are impartial, autonomous, and strict by which tackle respecting others and their dignity, universalize the maxims of our actions, and targeting the Kingdom of
The definition of an abortion is the process of ending a woman’s pregnancy by the termination of an embryo or fetus inside the mother’s womb (Pros and Cons Abortion). During the process of an abortion, the unborn child is not treated as a human being. The baby is treated as a nuisance; it is not given the proper care, it is regarded as a nonliving thing (Abortion Facts). Abortion is not the only method to take when a mother is confused by her feelings about the pregnancy for how her pregnancy came about (Arguments about Abortion). There is no reason to punish a child when they have no control of what is going on in the world around them.

One of the ways a misogynistic culture suppresses the woman is to question her role as wife and mother. Literature, in particular, feeds this culture in regards to how an author portrays the mother in the context of their relationship with their children. In particular, the relationship between the mother and daughter. In The Reproduction of Mothering, Nancy Chodorow explains the difference between “mothering” and “fathering” from the viewpoint of a feminist in 1978. She states while the female adult would be “mothering” a child, a mother would never be accused of “fathering” a child because it is not a nurturing role.
