However, some may argue that the reliance on sexuality does not celebrate a women agency because it is demeaning to women and prolongs the stereotype that women are just eye candy/sexual objects. I do not agree with this because everyone has the right to do as they please with their body as long as it does not harm them or society. In my opinion, sexuality is not the most significant aspect of the femme fatale characters, it is the emotional manipulation. 2. After reading chapters 1 -12 I concluded that Cora is indeed a “femme fatale” because she is both sexually attractive from Frank’s perspective and has a habit of complicating things for the men who love her (Frank Chambers
The setting allows the reader to understand how people without honour are seen as outcasts of the society and the existence of a woman’s virginity is seen as a measure of her honour, as well as a precious commodity, which can purchase the family’s social advancement, through a marriage of convenience. Ángela states that Santiago deflowered her, but since “…she looked for it in the shadows…”, even though “She only took the time necessary to say the name.” we question this piece of information and its reliability, due to it being precise but also vague at the same time. Due to their sister stating this, Pablo and Pedro Vicario are ordered to reinstate their “…sister’s lost honour…”, ironically by their mother, to meet the expectations of the community and it is up to them to spiritually retrieve their sister’s virginity by killing Santiago. This means the brothers cannot back down from “…the horrible duty that’s fallen on them…” as “…there’s no way out of this…”. Prudence Cotes states that she would not have married Pablo “…if he hadn’t done what a man should do.”, indicating the social importance of retrieving honour, which influenced the brothers into killing
She leads her troop through negativity and rude words. She picks on girls like Daphne and Laurel because they are easy targets and help build up Arnetta’s inner self. Those girls are independent leaders and have no urge to have a following with their choices. Arnetta sees this and she has envy.

Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable". Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
.you [my mother] were poor as I am poor, you slept with men because you liked them or because you needed money - I do that too" (Keun 73). Doris 's self-candor is both her best and worst quality: it helps her make sense of her surroundings and stay a step ahead of others, though she often is self-critical because of it. One such moment of self-critizing comes later in the novel, though Doris does not realize it: ". . .
Moreover, the description of the prostitute provides an alternative perspective to approach the Massacre by adding a feminine layer to the narrative. At the beginning, they do not understand the disastrous results of the fall of the country, these cynical adventuresses seeking asylum in the safety zone or the church, and they are still satisfying with themselves in the world of jewelry, nail polish and cosmetics. For example, in City of Life and Death, streetwise Xiao Jiang refuses to cut her beautiful curly long hair for the reason that she believes she will need these sexy and feminine indicators to earn money after the war. In the two films the prostitutes’ female thinking for material gain and beauty almost disrupts the national epic 's seriousness, but enlivens the gloomy diegesis with a pragmatic concern for survival. According to McClintock (2011), this fresh angle in approaching the war, as well as the commercial potential of presenting the exotic female community, appeals to Zhang Yimou greatly, and he changed the film title from The Heroes of Nanking to The Flowers of War.
Such a view is not difficult to find all over the cinema, but Julia Roberts, who were treated with contempt at a clothing store, is receiving hospitality thanks to Richard Gere. In other words, a female protagonist with a low social status is included in the reciprocal range of the male protagonist and shares his social status. The film also goes a step further in the romantic love affair, suggesting the image of a woman that a man must enlighten and teach through a scene in which a female character faithfully receives a lady lesson provided by a male character. The bigger problem is that movies such as Pretty Woman lead the public with false illusions and are making the above sex discrimination naturally and

Moreover, Darcy does not deny the fact that he separated Jane and Bingley "I have no wish of denying that I did every thing in my power to separate my friend from your sister, or that I rejoice in my success.
