Sometimes, leading the reader to have an emotion response is essential in connecting characters in the story to audience. In Double Indemnity, Phyllis walks around the huge but hollow living room when she describes her boring daily life and stories to Walter, there are some “crossing and recrossing bars of shadow cast by a window blind.” (Blaser) The director of Double Indemnity, Billy Wilder skillfully uses the shadow of the window blind to imply that Phyllis is indeed living in a prison without freedom and she is trapped in her nominal marriage. If we take a look carefully at the decoration inside the house, it is not hard to realize that there isn’t a personal object or even a picture to reveal Phyllis’s status in this house. When Walter is pacing around in the living room while he is waiting for Phyllis, he “
He rolls his eyes at himself, was he that desperate to get over to her house that he couldn 't even pack his damn things properly? Apparently. He 'll just use her toothpaste, that 's not weird. Right? He walks downstairs and attempts to make small talk with her for about thirty seconds before just cutting to the chase and telling her that he 's taking her out to dinner.
In the film ‘The Shining’, Shelly Duvall plays the character ‘Wendy’ the stereotypical ‘woman in distress’ and a rather quite sexist outlook on women. In the beginning of the film, the way Jack behaved towards wendy already showed that he had some sort of resentment towards Wendy, some sort of grudge he was holding against her, “As long as I live, she’ll never let me forget what happened.” Wendy’s character plays the nurturing mother, a ‘good’ wife that fixes things around the hotel like a typical housewife would. This whole ‘typical’ female role as a wife and mother is considered ‘ideological’ and it is semiotic to the male dominated society nowadays. She does jobs that is actually Jack’s job position to do so, like like a scene where she

Udall copes with his disorder by secluding himself in his apartment to write novels, curses at people, mumbles under his breath, and having that satisfaction of buys all the bars of soup that he only uses once. The ways that he copes with his disorder affects the way people treat him. In the film, when he mumbles under his breath and disrespects Carol, other people hear his comments and they give Mr. Udall horrible looks like he has something wrong with him and that he has no idea on how to respect people.

In Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, the wife of Antipholus of Ephesus, Lady Adriana, is often portrayed as shallow and clingy. In act two, scene one, Adriana is presented as a worrisome wife wondering about why her husband is late to dinner and his intentions of doing so. She instantly begins to question his actions and jump to the worse conclusion possible. While some people may see her worries over a simple meal to be an extreme exaggeration, there is a deeper meaning and symbol behind the idea of a meal and the role of a wife in the home. The role of the character Adriana is not to belittle women and present them as doubting and immature, but to instead show the experience, power, and importance that women hold within their domestic sphere in the home.
“And I hope she 'll be a fool – that 's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool” (Fitzgerald 17). This quote was said by Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby. Throughout the novel, women are very present and Fitzgerald created mesmerising and contradicting personalities for each character to draw in the readers. During the flapper movement, many women were cutting their hair, raising the hemlines on their skirts, smoking, drinking, and even driving (Kennedy, Cohen, Bailey 745). Nevertheless, many women were still afraid to speak their minds, even if they followed the fashion and social trends.
