For this essay, I have chosen to write about an important character. The character that I will be using is the main character of the film Irena Sendler. Irena was just your everyday average Social Worker, but she was a very brave person, she had the set image of the perfect role model that a lot of people couldn’t be like.

Stereotypical women in the Dark Ages was controversial because they were treated with idolatry and reverence, but were not respected as capable members of the human race. Much of the chivalric code that knights prided themselves on was based on the assumption that women could not achieve much for themselves, and therefore, men had to accomplish it for them. However, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight demonstrates that women possessed the ability to achieve their demands and utilize their influence however they desired.
