Using these words, the authors draw the line of distinction between the roles of “the saint” and “the whore” (200). Secondly, independent women in fairy tales were often associated with the concept of evil because they menaced the patriarchal order itself (203). No longer relying on men for emotional or economic support, these women were harder to control (203). However, back in the days when these tales were crafted, “most women had not been by tradition so fortunate as to enjoy the economic independence that would enable them to run their lives as wished” (203). As a result, their roles in society were entirely defined by their relationships with men (207).

She is used, and often abused, by her powerful lovers, firstly, the colonial representative, the Englishman who fathered her child, and, secondly, the new neocolonial delegates: the General and the tycoon. For the renowned movie star, these men were “all the same…Carrying around her used panties as if they were a fetish, like a piece of her they had carved off, like her skin” (Hagedorn,226). Sex, for her, is the means of support, it provides her with luxury and she willingly accepts the price she has to pay in return. The first encounter with Luna’s character in the chapter appropriately named “Surrender” portrays her on her knees with her lover, the General, standing above her and pulling her “unruly hair” (Hagedorn, 127).

Women rights such as the selection of work, sexual control, and reproduction are seldom to be got or have not been able to fully enjoy because of the hegemony of patriarchal ideology in all areas of life. However, in A Doll’s house, Nora is a weak creature who is always marginalized when dealing with her husband. In economy, Nora always obeys her husband in using the money because Nora who not works in public cannot earn money. From the explanation above, the writer finds the practice of patriarchy to be a serious problem in the society where women cannot free in doing any activities in public area.

Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1).

Fuller personifies what is wrong with the thoughts of people in nineteenth-century society. She is a well-educated, attractive woman and yet, in America, she is considered unmarriageable because of the unintended intimidation her knowledge brings forth. She can’t understand why men would not want to find a woman with whom they can carry on an intelligent, meaningful conversation and still be physically attracted to. She knows that once this inferiority complex is gotten past, women will start to excel in all different fields (7, 8). The intense passion of her message in Women in the 19th Century blows away both her male and female audience
A feminist analysis could reveal what behavior was expected and accepted for men and women. For example, one may point out that when Matilda discovered the “‘unlady-like’” habit of swearing, the focus was not that her father taught her the habit, but that a female was swearing (51).

Granted, it can be argued that modern society does not perceive men and women equally.
