Arguments for The play is considered by as a feminist work as it illustrates the erroneous treatment of women. Ibsen believes that women had a right to
Nora is not concern about keeping her honor but selflessly more concerned with her husband’s honor. While taking into consideration Torvald’s reputation, Nora informs Kristine the negative effect sharing her secret would have on Torvald when she remarks, “besides Torvald, with all his masculine pride-how painfully humiliating for him if he ever found out he was in debt to me” (Ibsen 1030). Nora’s genuine care and prior knowledge to how important reputation is to her husband displays how important protecting honor is. Nora is not the only one concerned with protecting her husband’s honor so is Torvald himself. Torvald answer contradicts what Nora believes to be important in maintaining honor in their relationship: “I’d gladly work for you day and night - and take on pain and deprivation.
He states “I hope you will believe that my delay in answering your letter could proceed only from my unwillingness to destroy any hope….”. Johnsons begins this letter using emotion tactics because he knows that it will be hard for the mother to accept the fact that he is refusing her request. By beginning the letter in such a manner he is not pampering her for the rest of the letter but also letting her down softly as possible. Oppose to accusing her of being wrong for having this feeling and attempting to change her son’s fate, Johnson defines hope as being “a pleasure immoderately enjoyed” and as an “expectations improperly

If you aren’t sent to the reform school before next week, my name’s not Dubose!”(Page 104) This is a complete lie that never happened and she is just trying to get Jem mad. Another quote that Mrs. Dubose says is “Your father’s no better than the niggers and trash he works for!”(Page 105) and these are just some examples of her being mean and after that Atticus was still very nice to Mrs. Dubose. Atticus would take off his hat, wave to her and say, "Good evening, Mrs. Dubose! You look pretty as a picture this evening. "(Page 103) The reason that he was being so nice was that Mrs. Dubose was addicted to painkillers, and she wanted quit before she died.
“Is that my lark twittering there” and “Is it the squirrel frisking around” can be great examples for the word choice Torvald uses towards Nora (1.13). Along with calling Nora his “Little spendthrift” Torvald objectifies Nora which creates an image of power and submissiveness. Degenerated word choice for women has been used throughout the play. As if, a woman is less of a man; “And it is just by pleading his cause that you make it impossible for me to keep him. It’s already known at the Bank that I intend to dismiss Krogstad.
The reader becomes very aware of the situation Nora is faced with as Ibsen challenges us to think about the societal times women were a part of during the late 1800’s. As Unni Langas states in her article describing gender within the play, “..this drama is not so much about Nora’s struggle to find herself as a human being, as it is about her shocking experience of being treated as a woman..” (Langas, 2005). This gives the reader an insight into Nora Helmer’s character. She is evidently perceived as the Doll trapped in the Doll house, as she is viewed as an entertainer rather than her own person in the eyes of her husband and children. The representation of the doll is symbolically significant as Nora is compared to a beautiful feminine figure, being the doll, but also someone who is treated as a toy and as someone who is disrespected.
Be careful of what you wish for, thought Coraline when the Other Mother asked to stay forever in the fantastic Other World, but there was only one condition—to sew buttons over her own eyes.

Thomas, Elizabeth starts the last part of the Being Wrong segment. She starts by saying, “I recently read one of those life hack articles online and it included the Step of Adding water to Mac and cheese as a life hack. One of the most well known facts of the college realm, to add water to mac and cheese is certainly not a “life hack” an actual necessity.” There she goes again with macaroni and cheese talk. I still cannot believe half of a segment talked about the wrongdoings of mac and cheese. The mac and cheese lover continues, “It made me think about all the life hack articles and videos floating around, scolding us on how we are living life wrong and correcting our ways.
Nora 's epiphany occurs when the truth is finally revealed. As Torvald unleashes his revulsion against Nora and her crime of forgery, the protagonist realizes that her husband is not who she thought he was at all. Torvald has no intention of taking the blame for Nora 's crime. She thought for certain that he would selflessly give up everything for her, like she given up so much for him. When he fails to do this, she accepts the fact that their marriage has been an illusion.
“Hi Taylor!” she says. Her speech was so fake even my mother glanced back at me. The house was as it always was. The scent of challah and furniture clinging to my lungs with the plasticy smell of pony action figures and solo cups. The look of cleanliness and the elephant sculpture in the corner, something my family wouldn’t be caught dead for having in our own home.
