Therefore, they are victims of objectification because even Symkyn's wife and their daughter are introduced inversely compared to the three men. The nameless wife has been told right before the two scholars, suggesting that she introduced after Symkyn because he owns her, making him liable for her and them as a unity. As a result, she's an object of his needs and desires. She is “wel ynorissed and a mayde”, meaning that she is only valuable for her manners and her virginity, making her an object. (Chaucer, 3946).

Women use formalities to gain an upper hand like men do, but women do this more politically than aggressively. Fidget states, “You would have found us modest women in our denials only” (Wycherley 1189). Meaning, they are modest in conduct but immodest in thought. This gets across the idea that women desire sex just as much as men do, and crave it without requiring compensation in the same way that men do. To his surprise, this presents Horner with an "alternate economy of feminine desire” (Burke 237).
They eloped together because Desdemona 's father would not have approved of their relationship. She is used to people telling her how pretty and wonderful she is. By sating this quote, it shows that Desdemona shows that she truly care for her husband but she is so good at hiding her emotions.
Desdemona is the rest of the characters to survey, in any case she is in like manner the most basic. Desdemona is managed outlandishly in light of the way that she is a tried and true wife, who appreciates her mate specifically. Regardless, through the help of Iago, her companion, and Othello suspects Desdemona is undermining him. This is not substantial, yet rather still Othello believes his partner much sooner than he would listen to the woman who loves him. Othello then, as opposed to treating Desdemona conventionally thusly for her love, battles with and mocks her.

The author thinks women can hardly wear anything without a fear of being judged. She provides few pieces of evidence on how women usually are targeted and not men in this society in respect to interpretation. She argues on how different forms have Mr. as a suffix which shows nothing, but in the case of women there is Mrs. and also Miss which reflects the marital status of women. She raises her point also about how a woman changes her surname with the men after marriage. I personally believe that she had some evidence and her argument really made me think twice o and made me think why women are judged so much and she was also definitely true in her argument.
The little girl could not take the psychological pressure that was brought upon her, and so she gave her own life to avoid it. This shows that the sex trafficking industry can mentally break people, and the ones who get out alive from the brothels are usually traumatized for the rest of their lives.

This is also shown in the book Sold, with Monica not being accepted back to her village after returning.
Do not put such unlimited power in the hands of the Husbands." To which John responds, "as to your extraordinary Code of Laws, I cannot but laugh." In Abigail 's letter, she was pleading with her husband to give women not only voting rights, but other rights as well. Abigail 's appeal for women 's rights revealed that women in this society were powerless, and consequently Abigail had to implore John. Moreover, John said he could not but laugh, which portrayed Abigail 's idea as outlandish. Therefore, John 's response demonstrated unfamiliarity with the concept of women 's rights or equality; through John 's letter, the colonial man 's frame of mind, which was ignorant to the idea of women 's rights, was exposed, and women would not receive voting rights until 1920.
A modern example is when Bell references misogyny and says, “devastated and disappointed that their daughter had not become the woman they raised her to be: a good girl who would marry her first boyfriend” (25). Unlike Colonial America, today’s country involves a less rigid view on women, but nonetheless still includes misogynistic ideals that need to be removed from society. For example, instead of women being expected to marry their first boyfriend, they are expected to not have many sexual partners, but still have enough sexual experience. Women are allowed more sexual freedom, but are still restricted to an imaginary line drawn by men. This is a classic case of sexually objectifying women, and making them look like they are only here to please males.
