While they share these common factors, they also oppose one another as one is in a male’s perspective and the other is in the perspective of a female, one ends with life while the other ends in death, and one uses dialogue and the other has a sparing amount.

Where our own selves are usually characterized as being 'young, slim with beauty that has to meet the accepted standards' or we are often associated with being 'housewives'.

The most beautiful woman I ever saw.” (8/13) The statement “Shug Avery was a woman” is a remark of Shug’s female power.

The representation of woman throughout the centuries has mainly been based on their feminine characteristics. The first thought that comes to mind is the “emotional woman” Historically women have been or believed to be vulnerable and known for their benevolence, whereas the beauty of women has been discussed for centuries and they are wittily referred to as the “fairer sex” On the socio-economical side, they have been playing a supportive role rather than a leading role at home, in the community and in the workplace. But the physical attributes of women i.e. beauty, were misconstrued, even abused. In some societies woman were subjected to oppressive relationships dominated by a patriarchal system.
