White women in slaveholding families in the south were one of the main forces behind the oppression of African American men and women. In society these white women held no real power but in the comfort of their domestic domains they were granted more power; so, these women took power where they could and became mistress to a slave. At a young age, they were taught how to manage slaves as well as being their master. In one case, a mistress had full power over the estate and managed it on her own without her husband’s help . Consequently, she held the power that she would not have had outside of the home.

In Stanley Milgram’s “The perils of obedience” and Philip G. Zimbardo's “The Stanford Prison Experiment” the influence that authority holds is analyzed and tested in a variety of social experiments. Milgram asserts that any individual can excuse themselves from the responsibility of their role, regardless of how evil, on the grounds that there is someone ordering them to do so. However, Zimbardo claims that authority doesn’t have to be an individual, stating that anyone, be it a prison guard or a prisoner, will ultimately fill and perpetuate their assigned role as a result of authoritative factors and environments. However, the way in which both of the authors go to reaching these conclusions differs greatly. The first example of these differences is seen in the introduction of both texts.
Civil rights activist Susan B. Anthony once said, “The day may be approaching when the whole world will recognize woman as the equal of man” (Brainy). This quote explains what Anthony believes: she believes that women are equal to men, and the whole world will one day see that. She had fought for women’s rights all her life, until she was put in the grave. Susan B. Anthony’s involvement in civil disobedience was due to personal influences, she chose to participate in civil disobedience to advocate for women’s rights, and she did achieve success using this controversial method of standing up for what she strongly believes to be right. Civil disobedience is a person/group of people who peacefully protest laws or rights.

The prison community is one of best ones to be analyzed through the sociological perspective. It could provide insight into several unique characteristics of the inter-human relations, power, attitude toward money and wealth. Moreover, it gives an author a possibility to depict important social problems and concerns. The concept of power is the first sociological issue to be addressed in the novel. The thorough analysis of text leaves no doubt that a prison is a model of a whole society, containing its own relations of subjugation and leadership.

“I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves.” ― Mary Wollstonecraft The position of women in society has been touched by many authors. This is also the case for George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, a play originally published in 1913. It’s not a coincidence that this work was written in the Edwardian era. In this era, women’s rights were practically nonexistent. Women had no political rights, nor did they have a voice in their personal lives and decisions.
