Women in the Victorian Era People do not often talk about women before the 20th century. There are sometimes names thrown around of influential women, but women from the Victorian era are made to seem like they were either in the background with not much to them, or they had to be someone incredible to be taken seriously. However, women during these times were experiencing their fair share of hardships and were more complex than people have been lead to believe. Women in the Victorian Era had to deal with their society’s roles that they were given, how they were treated due to their social classes, the world of prostitution, and the never ending cycle of menstruation. All of these things made the women of this time more respectable than people
A Definition of Justice Equality is the well-known problem faced by women. It is the issue of how women have been treated differently from men who act as if they have a higher social position. Besides the equality issue, there is another problem faced by many women: mental abuse at home. The husbands are not literally abuse their wife, but how they act have made their wives live in agony. Subsequently, when the women as the oppressed party who have been treated unequally cannot demand such abuse to be punished since it is not written in man’s law, they will seek their own justice.
Money, power, and success have blinded people into thinking they are in love and it has led to these women being oppressed. Tom and Gatsby in this book are what is called the patriarchy. According to Revise Sociology, the patriarchy is “The systematic domination of women by men in some or all of society’s spheres and institutions.” In Tom and Daisy’s marriage; they are both having an affair, Tom wasn’t at his child’s birth, and he oppresses Daisy physically, maybe by accident, and socially, by not allowing her to go wherever she wants to go. In Tom and Myrtle’s affair; they are both married, yet they have this affair, she is dependent on him because he oppresses her economically and psychologically, and he also oppresses her physically when he broke her nose. In Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship; she is having an affair with him and he psychologically oppressed her with his money and wealth only to get the idea he has of her as his “Golden Girl.” Fitzgerald’s argument is, when love is not the main reason for a relationship it will lead into oppression of women.

Women in ancient Egypt were treated exclusive differently from those in ancient Babylon. The Egyptians saw families as a basis of happiness, women played a very important role in the lives of their husbands. Women in Egypt married more for love, though unlike the arranged marriages in many other nations during these times.

Their role, however, is not passive. The lack of employment of some husbands makes them the subject of ridicule by their extended family members (specifically prevalent among the wives’ family) and members of their community (Pingol 2001). While other factors such as sexual desires are considered, Pingol (2000, 2001) observes a reinforcing of traditional sexual division of labor through several instances by actors such as in-laws, and by the wives themselves. Accordingly, the subsequent parental neglect has adverse effects on other family members. Husbands’ dissent exacerbates the roles of both children and extended family (Pingol 2001).
Phaedra and Medea were both sympathetic victims, though Phaedra earned more sympathy. Throughout both plays and many others within, the alleged general faultiness yet calculated cruelty of women are noted often by both male and female characters many times, including Phaedra and Medea. Since women only had the ability to be respected for few things, for example, the ability to bear children and keep a husband, it follows that acting out of the norm could have severe consequences for them and their societal standing. The imbalance of power in Greek and Roman society in both Hippolytus and Medea has created an outlet of seemingly disproportionate revenge committed by women, in response to their oppression. However, it is not truly disproportionate if one considers that a woman who had never been able to fight back or speak up in her life will one day respond with a collective blow to the patriarchy when it is vital for
