Celebrate the balance of light and dark as the sun begins to tip the scales, and the return of new growth is near. Many modern Pagans celebrate Ostara as a time of renewal and rebirth. This is the time when night and day are harmonized together in balance when light is becoming more and more. This is celebrated the begginning of the month after the full moon following the spring equinox.

She is oppressed, she is angry because she is not free. When Atticus faced her with this truth and respects her needs of having a better life for herself in the trial scene, she thought he is making fun of her and refused to answer his question, this scene unveil Mayella’s anger, actually by saying that anger has two types positive anger and negative anger, this one can be considered as a negative one.

Bob Ewell, is Mayella’s father, the villain of the novel and most figures that struts hatred to the African Americans. Bob Ewell has no money, no education, he wants his life to be better, and he pours his anger on whoever is weaker than him.
In consequence we can see clearly how Erin Brockovich addresses many ideas as reversal of gender roles, sexual objectification, and inequality. Erin is mistreated and misjudged throughout the movie by men, and by her society for falling into a certain category, which is being a divorced woman. She is thus given a certain role, and is looked down upon by people, because to them she has failed the most important task in a woman’s life, which is to get married and stay married. It is thus a movie about self-awareness, and female

Shakespeare, like any other man in the 16th and 17th century, saw ambitious and dominant women as evil and even disturbing or disturbed. From Macbeth, we can see Shakespeare feels women should be challenged and punished because they are trying to change society. Nowadays these ambitious and dominant women are regarded as brave and respected because of their ambition, such as Lady Macbeth’s ambition to become Queen. Shakespeare presents Lady Macbeth as mentally disturbed.
Insecure women aren’t born, they are made. In “Strong Enough”, Shanker introduces her personal experience of what being treated as an outcast feels like.

Biases have been formed towards the relationships between men and women for the bulk of time. Privileges of the men differ a great deal from the privileges of women, when it comes to roles both genders play in their everyday lives. Expectations, celibacy, and dominance are key factors that play into relationships between men and women. All of which tend to be typical male intentions, and if a female reaches out to a male she is thought of as a desperate, slut. Relationships are important for one to acquire at some point in life, though difficulty sets in immediately upon the women being forced to stay in a submissive state.
In Romeo and Juliet, societal beliefs in the Elizabethan era concerning gender roles are inaccurate due to the numerous paradoxes within those views, and conflicting character traits that label a character ‘female’ or ‘male’. For one, women were viewed as very sexual beings, who were irrational and immoral as they were supposedly easily seduced. Yet, it is women who were suppose to be virgins before marriage, and viewed ‘dirty’ by people if she was not. Men, in contrast, were perceived as rational and virtuous and made of goodwill.
Without the dramatic gestures and vitality of the dancers, the overall story of the piece would not have been portrayed as well. Fokine masters the production’s storyline by developing emotion into inanimate objects. The puppets’ ability to convey such an intense amount of feelings such as happiness, love, and jealousy motivates their actions in their dancing. Petrushka’s failed pursuit of the Ballerina clearly agonizes him and his ability to ever be with her. Thus, his way of dancing showcases his jealousy and defeat.
In ancient Indian cultures, women were expected to show respect for their husband by throwing themselves to their own death on their husband’s burning funeral pyre. In the more contemporary Victorian cultures, women were shamed for not spending visible and substantial lengths of time mourning their husband after he died. While acting as a superficially less extreme example, the Lady in Black of Chopin’s The Awakening who only appears briefly and has no lines also emphasizes the arbitrary social expectations put on women and the dire outcomes of systematic oppression. The Lady in Black does not have a proper name in the novel and she only appears wearing all black.
