The reader, on the other hand, probably pities Jane after her horrible experience in the red-room, therefore this emphasize on beauty has to be seen in a critical way. As Jen Cadwallader expresses in her Essay “Plain Jane and the Limits of Female Beauty”: “the homage paid to her appearance is a detriment to the development of her [Georgiana’s] character.” (Cadwallader 239). Thanks to her beauty, others seem to ignore or play down the mistakes Georgiana makes in her life, because of that she develops into “shallow” and “self-centred”

One of the main reason Red Queen’s personality is brutal and violent towards people is because she lived without loved. Red Queen made others felt frightened to her. However, the White Queen is illustrated as soft and feminine but lacks direct action.
In addition to that I would be showing how Steinbeck creates tension by using Curleys Wife. Curley 's Wife is first shown as a dangerous desperate villain in the novella by Steinbeck.

The setting in “The Horse Dealer’s Daughter” continues to convey the theme that women have been oppressed by society. Mabel faces oppression in the small english town where the story takes place. She explains that being a women does not matter as much when a family has money, but when they are poor she has to walk down the streets with her eyes low and avoid eye contact as she buys the cheapest item in every store (Lawrence 458). This shows that when a woman is seen as being represented by someone with power, in this case it is her father, then they are given a little respect. However, when a women is looked at just as herself and not as a rich man’s daughter she is not seen a colleague to men but as an object that is to be pitied.
Shakespeare, like any other man in the 16th and 17th century, saw ambitious and dominant women as evil and even disturbing or disturbed. From Macbeth, we can see Shakespeare feels women should be challenged and punished because they are trying to change society. Nowadays these ambitious and dominant women are regarded as brave and respected because of their ambition, such as Lady Macbeth’s ambition to become Queen. Shakespeare presents Lady Macbeth as mentally disturbed. At first, rather than putting all the blame on Macbeth she is proud of her involvement in the murder stating: “My hands are of your colour but I shame to wear a heart so white.” Initially this villainizes her as she is in control rather than being an obedient wife going against Jacobean stereotypes
Through the novel, we can see how Gilead negatively affects the psychology and mentality of the handmaids that makes them to give up to the system and brain washes them. One example is Janine. She is rejecting her victimization and ignorant of her own victimization, Janine looks revolting, pathetic, and distressed. For example, Offered describes Janine as pitiful since she tries to fulfill Gilead’s roles. She describes her how she throws herself into the testifying and feels arrogance in describing her rape story and abortion; subsequently, feels guilty when she had done nothing wrong.
Symbolism Within The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne created symbolism throughout The Scarlet Letter in order to develop the theme throughout Hester’s life. Hester is portrayed as a sheltered soul, shunned from society due to her adulterous acts. The red A and her daughter, Pearl, are symbols of Hester’s shame which she bares proudly despite society's harsh judgements. Hawthorne is able to use symbolism to develop themes, characters, and analogies in the Scarlet Letter. One of the best signs of symbolism is repetition shown throughout the story.
