For example, " ‘if i knew some wanga magic, i would wipe them off the face of the earth.’ (Danticat 7)” Soldiers were scared of these women with such hatred and anger because they are afraid of what they will do to rebel. So instead, soldiers portray women like these as witches so they weaken their
A coward is a person who is so scared of others that they do not take responsibility for their actions therefore they often get innocent people in trouble. In Arthur Miller’s retelling of the Salem Witch Trials entitled The Crucible, the character of Mary Warren is the quintessential coward. She is one of the many girls who accuse others of being witches, though she knows it is wrong, she continues to cover up her faults with lies. Mary Warren finally accuses John Proctor of witchcraft in Act IV because she is a coward and does not want to take the blame for the hysteria she has helped to create. In Act IV Mary Warren is afraid of Abigail, so she points the finger at John Proctor to keep Abby from accusing her of being a witch who is very vulnerable and easily persuaded.

She was grieving and could not bear the pain that her husband left with another woman. She was knowledgable in many ways and knew what each action would cause in effect. While many think her acts were monstrous, I know that before she decided to kill Creon, the bride and her children she knew that it will bring her at peace and destroy her husband. Medea knew that a life in exile was no life at all and she did not want that for her children and that the royal family wouldn’t accept them
To give one example of manipulation, Flannery O'Connor, Georgia State author of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find", writes that "You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?"(421). The grandmother is trying to make the misfit vulnerable, even though he has already killed everyone but her. She's begging the misfit for her life. Every one of those people would still be alive if it was not for the grandmother. She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways.
Skylar Neese, unsuspecting like Caesar, had gone to enjoy a night with her friends that ended in her death. Her supposed best friends’ cause for the murder was “we just didn’t like her anymore” similar with Caesar, his death the result of the fear of tyranny (Sandt). Both of their deaths were a result of betrayal, dislike, and fear. Caesar, many times put trust in his friends and confided in them, his reason being “because I love you, I will let you know” (2.2.79). In Skylar Neese’s case, though she was said to be fighting with her friends at the time, she still had trust and faith that they wouldn’t hurt her; unfortunately,
Ladies didn’t have any rights or power—even eating and sleeping in the same room was deemed unacceptable. So for Clytemnestra to plan with another man the murder of her husband who has sinned a multitude more than what she did was unacceptable. This, leading to the household to turn against her. The same situation happened with Electra who wanted as much, or even more than Orestes to take revenge for the death of their
As Francie watches the women through stones at Joanna and her baby, she realizes that the women are hypocrites and decides that she hates them because “they stuck together for only one thing: to trample on some other woman...whether it was by throwing stones or by mean gossip.” One of the most crucial events in Francie’s loss of innocence was her experience with the sex offender. This is the first time she has had any experience with sex of any kind and it is a very emotionally scarring event for her to have to deal with. The final event that shows a loss of innocence in this section of the story is the death of Johnny. Francie has to watch as her father’s health declines. His death causes her belief in God to diminish and she begins to see the world in a different
In the beginning, the nurse urges the children not to go near their mother, for all she knew in her frenzy she could harm the innocent kids. She no longer wanted to hurt just Jason, but also everything that had to do with him. “I’ve seen her look at them with savage eyes. As if she means to injure them somehow” The nurse (About Medea and the kids) Even Medea herself says that: “Cursed children of a hateful mother-May you die with your father” Not only does she curse her children, she uses them as a ploy to earn time for planning her vengeance. But as discussed before, hatred was only a consequence of betrayal.
She is apparently quiet after her boyfriend has told her he do not want children. She is actually shattered and she murders her children. It seems a little exaggerated, but it is a consequence of all the situations she has repressed during her life. As Cixous explains ‘’every woman has known the torment of getting up to speak: a double distress.’’(Cixous, p. 351) It is necessary that women must speak up their minds, the female’s character in Love, forever is a victim of a patriarchal society that defines women’s expected
The witch trials in Salem occurred because of Abigail and it is her fault. She started something she could not finish and by starting it killed many innocent people and ruined many reputations. Abigail is at blame because she was the one who is basically the "psycho girlfriend" who is obsessed with her ex. But because she is desperately in love with John Proctor, she is willing to do anything to have him all to herself. Just like how she drank a chicken blood charm to kill Elizabeth, which is against her religion.
The rape of uncountable amount of women and small girls in the ages between 8 to even 80 years. Even though the Nazi soldiers did the same crime towards the Soviet women it was not necessary for the Soviet soldiers to do what they did. Instead of raping the women and torturing them as they did, they could have ended the woman’s life then and there. However, instead without mercy they raped and killed a disturbing amount of women. It was recorded that during that time there were more than 2 million abortions, and if not aborted some women even went to lengths of drowning their new born in a lake nearby.
