The poem can be considered a blazon traditional sonnet although it presents the tradition in an unconventional way. The typical way a blazon sonnet presents itself is through the broken-down description of a woman’s qualities. Women are usually highly praised and they are made to appear so out of reach; they become unobtainable even by the poet themselves. Women are portrayed as a collection of objects rather than human which accentuates the idea that they are so unattainable because no woman like them actually exist. The idea that beauty is what defines, and what controls a man’s love for a woman, is not depicted in Shakespeare’s sonnet, My Mistress’ Eyes.
In Shakespeare 's Taming of the Shrew, the whole play centers around Petruchio trying to “tame” Katherine and forcing her to be the traditional submissive wife. Set in the Elizabethan era, the play also compares love versus economic value and how social status influences marriage in the 16th century. Bianca, quiet and innocent, plays the traditional role of a woman well, while Katherine rebels and refuses to be ordered around by any man. While both men and women in the play don 't always line up with traditional gender roles, it is the women (Katherine, specifically) are punished. In today 's society, Kate could be seen as an independent woman who doesn’t need a man but instead, Kate is depicted as a crusted, unmanageable shrew in which by the looks of it, will die alone if she doesn 't curb her attitude.
Through this carelessness, they were underestimated all through the story. This boundary drives them as minor characters. All through Ramayana Urmila and Mandodari were smothered by their spouses. Thus, the present study is planned to discover the feministic aspects of Ramayana by focusing on the characters Urmila and Mandodari. Feminism in India is an arrangement of developments made for characterizing, setting up, and shielding approaches like political, monetary, and social rights and equivalent open doors for Indian ladies.
So, their blind faith and age old superstition have stood against the female education. Now, people have started realising the value of female education.

But a large number of women are still in dark as it is seen in Homeless Bird.
“Magical realism combines realism and the fantastic in such a way that the magical elements grow organically out of the reality portrayed”. (Faris. 169) The form of magic realism offers an ingenious and effective means of screening the “real” living experiences. Literary works are drawn ahead the conventions of both realism and fantasy or myth. In previously colonized countries numerous ‘schools’ of literature emerged which attempted to coalesce the old pragmatic tradition with elements variously referred to as the supernatural or magic.
Therefore it could be said they are “doubly oppressed.” For centuries they have been suffering mutely. It does not mean that they were immune to the pain they have been inflicted.

Grendel’s mother is monstrous in that she is all the opposite to peacewaver and hostesses: Grendel’s mother can be considered violent and cruel because she rather make use of weapons and her physical strength rather than using words or marriage to influence other people , just like Wealtheow . Grendel’s mother is another example of powerful woman. She’s independent, as she lives her house alone and protects it herself. She confront’s Beowulf on her own to take revenge for Grendel’s death. On the contrary, the poet is generally enthusiastic about Beowulf’s feats, but he often surrounds the events he narrates with a sense of dom.
Another reason why Scout’s saviour is Atticus is related with her acknowledgement over the superficiality and restrictions of being a Southern female, for example when Mrs. Dubose tells Scout: “You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady! You 'll grow up waiting on tables if somebody doesn 't change your ways ...” (page 135; To Kill a Mockingbird). Meaning that if Scout does not ‘woman’ up she will forever be rejected.This quote is one of many illustrations in the novel where our narrator communicates to us Lee 's criticism of Southern women and their ignorance concerning gender roles. Even Atticus the man how abides by no social conventions, ridicules the women 's attitudes. There are multiple examples of this; one were he tells Alexandra that he prefers “Southern womanhood as much as anybody, but not for preserving polite fiction at the expense of human life” (page 196; To Kill a Mockingbird).
