Majority said that these people who consider her to be empowered suffers from lack of awareness regarding such issues, others said that people are confused and need some serious help otherwise people like Qandeel Baloch wouldn’t have had become famous in first place. Also stated, women empowerment is more about prolonging and encouraging womanhood for better, Qandeel was just practicing freedom. Last but not the least, few respondents said that she was an attention seeker who gained fame due to her expression of desires to celebrities like Imran khan and Shahid Afridi. She cannot be a symbol of women empowerment since she is not the ideal person who sets a good example for the other girls of the society. I also reflected upon the killing of Qandeel Baloch by asking that whether her killing shall be labeled as HONOR killing or
There is a perceived split between “outer Edna and inner Edna” that is constantly disrupting Edna and her desires. Outer Edna is supposed to be recognized as this ideal wife who obeys her husband and does what he commands-similar to her friend Adele. This lifestyle that Edna is supposed to live by cannot be achieved due to “inner Edna’s” desire of being free and independent. “Outer Edna” conforms to society expectations even if it is not what she desires, while “inner Edna” seeks independence and
In the film 'Mona Lisa Smile', the topic of women the way in which they are different to men is identified. The director portrays the women in the film as obedient and worthless through a variety of uses of camera shots and angles. Body language is also used to convey this characteristic. All of the students wear the same color sequence and same makeup, which is a sign that women follow tradition in attempt to be individual. In this film we see how Katherine Watson shows the many students at Wellesley how important it is to live by your own definition.Towards the end of this film we see how all the characters change and develop.

Hannah Webster Foster formulates a tale that, on the surface, appears as a novel warning women against seduction, a common theme of the times. Marriage was seen as a necessity for women who desired financial stability and status, and being sexually seduced by a man would not provide a woman with these needs. Thus, the warnings against seduction and romanization of marriage were rampant. Upon further examination however, The Coquette has strong feminist undertones calling women towards the American ideal of freedom. This new nation claimed to be built upon the rock of freedom, while simultaneously oppressing women.
Mr Bennet: Mr Bennet seems like a more serious and mellow character. He does not care much for the arrival of the wealthy Mr Bingley and he does not share his wife’s love for gossip and visiting.

Myra Marx Ferree defines the phenomenon as “... this is only a top-down phenomenon that is happening to people rather than also a grassroots process in which individuals and groups are actively engaged, and that there is nothing gendered about it”( 3). Deeti becomes an example of “women be free to define themselves, instead of having their identity defined for them time and again, by their culture and their men” (Faludi 82). Ghosh has tried to show that socio political changes bring drastic changes in women to come out of their sufferings. Through the portrayal of Deeti’s character, Ghosh shows the socio political shifts bringing about changes in women out of their sufferings. His women never get suppressed by the patriarchal society; the will power sprouts within them and sails along with the fate, with never give up attitude, they fight against all odds in the society.

Maybe people care a lot about what other people think; or, maybe they just do not care at all. Some people live by what other people want or think is “normal.” Other people live the way they want to live and do not care about the things other people want them to be. Women tend to struggle with this alot. Stereotypes, inequalities, and politics were not things women in the 1930s wanted to live by; although, they managed to make it better for themselves through political action over time. *SOCIAL* Gender roles and education was something people worried about, so they decided to take action (Flannery).Lots of people (especially women) felt like they had to follow gender roles in society.
The impression we get of Matt’s mother is generally very negative. She shows little to no interest in her son, and when she does, it is mostly forced. She also barely shows him any kind of affection and she prioritizes her needs and her relationships with men over him. ‘’I liked to kid myself she would stop me if I didn’t sneak out of the house.’’ (P. 1, l. 10) Here it is very clear that Matt feels like this about his mother too. He is very aware of the fact that she does not care much about him, and he expresses that by mentioning that she probably would not care if he wandered off in the middle of the night with her being fully aware of it, which is very unusual since a considerate and loving mother would care.
