Virginia Woolfe wrote that women should have economic and social freedom so that they can fulfill their aspirations and not to be just an "enlarging mirror for male identity" (Castle, 2013). Hanna does not say that in such words, but it is clear that she wants to have such a freedom and that she feels that she lost her identity and that she only exists as a reflection for her husband's success. For example, her husband friends say that Hanna is a diamond, but this compliment is really for him, to show that he succeeded in finding that diamond – "'she’s a diamond, old boy, you’ve got your hands on a
