To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children.

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. The best example of this is her lifestyle before and after she is shunned. Before her exile, Hester recognizes the unjust nature of the laws around her. She refuses to follow them and present a façade of perfection and happiness.
She has proven herself as a bizzare, independent and strong or in other words she is lady of situations in it real sense due to her manipulative tactics. But the hypocrisy of the situation lies in the fact that still she is very determined to live her life according to the norms of the society around her, as the era depicted in the play is the time of 19 century. This interesting case, Hedda can be analyzed by the hints from her past and the lines of dialogue especially her slips of tongue. She is a female but she defies the demands of patriarchal society.

Elizabeth Cary’s The Tragedy of Mariam makes many valid points about women’s identities in marriage. Mariam’s choices throughout the play reflect her understanding of the fact that in the world she lives there is no space for a chaste, honest, independent woman. The standards that a woman of the time are impossible and Mariam’s attempts to grapple with them are doomed to fail.

This is especially true for Curley’s wife. Curley’s wife is seen acting out throughout the novel as a way to pull attention to herself. This is done because nobody on the ranch, not even her husband will treat her as an equal. In today’s terms, it is like having a little sibling causing a tantrum so they can sway the attention and favor of their parents towards them. In conclusion, Curley’s wife is not the antagonist, but someone whose dreams have been shattered, and is someone who is trying to regain a spark of happiness in their life
Grendel’s mother is another example of powerful woman. She’s independent, as she lives her house alone and protects it herself. She confront’s Beowulf on her own to take revenge for Grendel’s death.
