This character archetype is also known as “The Cheerleader”, “Slut” or “The Blonde Bimbo. For example, on the 3-minute and 40-second mark of the film where Dana noticed that Jules dyed her hair.

She is seen accusing the people “there is Goody Good … Aye, sir, and Goody Osburn” (47) which shows Tituba’s characterization as a liar and a deceiver. However, the bandwagon is seen after she has accused the two people in which many of the other young girls also start to accuse others in hopes of not

The narrator felt disgusted because the Sambo dolls represent the black stereotype of servitude towards the white race. The Sambo dolls connect to Ellison’s purpose of demonstrating the black experience in America and show how black Americans are still used as puppets just like Sambo dolls. In society, blacks were expected to behave and act a certain way by the white race, and the quote shows how Clifton demonstrated that it was still true. “For they had the power to use a paper doll, first to destroy his integrity and then as an excuse for killing him” (Ellison 441). After watching Clifton die, the narrator returns to his office in Harlem and is tormented with thoughts of the Sambo doll and Clifton’s death.
During the beginning of the act, the Puritans regard Tituba as powerless and defenseless because of societies racial perceptions. Upon first mention of Tituba’s affiliation with witchcraft Parris responds with utter disbelief saying “Now I am undone.” He refuses to believe that Tituba, a women with a reputation of low social status, could have any connection to such sorcery. However, throughout the play, Miller individualizes Tituba in terms of her dialect, place of origin, and skin color which ultimately shows how individuality can be subverted into a cause for fear. Tituba uses this sense of isolation and individuality to her advantage and self benefit.

Thus, women such as Hedda are not capable of being called a woman. Hedda is a victim of all the negative qualities that can be imagined: treachery, jealousy, domination over others and playing with others fate. These are such traits that no longer let a woman remain womanly this is why Hedda is truly a victim of feminism. Going back to the play, we will start looking at evidence from the play that support this
The other important female character in Oroonoko besides Imoinda is the unnamed female narrator. The narrator of the story does not tell us much about her. We know that her father died on the sea voyage to Surinam (Behn, Oroonoko 194). She also tells us she has an influential position and that she is respected: "As soon as I came into the country, the best house in it was presented me" (Behn, Oroonoko 195). She seems sympathetic to Oroonoko and his plight even claiming that she was respected by him: "[m]yself, whom he called his Great Mistress; and indeed my word would go a great way with him" (Behn, Oroonoko 192).
While Nakia recognizes this for the underhanded jab at who they are, Kamala goes on to remark just how “nice” Zoe is, and Bruno is silent on the matter, as he continues to be. In the reactions of these two girls, we see visible representations of who they are as people at their core and throughout each issue and ensuing
