Abuse of Women in the book ‘The Colour Purple’ by Alice Walker “Cruel, violent, or unfair treatment, especially of someone who does not have the power to prevent it”  Abuse can be both physical and mental. In the novel ‘The Colour Purple’ by Alice Walker, the women are victims of both physical and mental abuse. From the very start we understand the plight or the position of the protagonist, Celie. It starts with her father abusing her when her mother was ill. She was blackmailed to stay quiet about it. The father does not respect his daughters and regards them as objects to satisfy the needs of men.
“These accounts range from reports that women are regularly punched in the stomach, such that they are unable to sustain pregnancies, to reports of managers monitoring menstrual cycles to ensure that workers are not pregnant.” (Navarro, Pg.2) Another serious issue according to Navarro is sexual harassment. Many of the women reported being sexually harassed by their male managers or one of the foremen. “Examples of sexual harassment that researchers have found include managers offering workers a lighter workload in exchange for dates or sex with the female workers.” (Navarro, Pg. 2) These experiences are horrible, but they also don’t prove anything about normative personality traits. Although, I do see a connection between all of the women who have experienced these issues due to their place of employment.
Evans is incorrect for assuming that the emotions Holden expresses are fabricated. In fact, Holden is a young man who feels incredibly deeply, but he often subconsciously chooses to conceal those feelings, like adolescents are known for doing. For example, when Old Maurice and Sunny come to his hotel room and abuse him to get the money he ‘owes’ them, he reveals, “I was still sort of crying. I was so damn mad and nervous and all“ (Salinger 103). He feels truly upset as a result of this personal injustice.

At first, everybody acknowledged her as “Amazing Amy,” but after her reinvention she was no longer suitable for that title. Amy's reinvention was triggered when she came to the realization that her husband, Nick Dunne, was cheating on her with Andie, a young college girl.

The pain and rejection that Amy Dunne experienced after being cheated on led her to wanting revenge on her husband. She turned “Amazing Amy” into a person who wanted to make her husband suffer and feel remorseful for the actions he committed.
This is due to the fact that men are often pushed to bottle their emotions. Terrence Real, psychiatrist, reports that “Hidden depression drives several of the problems we think as typically male: physical illness, alcohol and drug abuse, domestic violence, failures in intimacy, self-sabotage in careers. We tend not to recognize depression in men because the disorder itself is seen as unmanly” (FIND PAGE). Real goes on to say that depression is a double edged sword for men - the femininity associated with expressing emotions and the shame of mental illness (FIND PAGE). This can create complications in numerous ways.
For example, in the high-risk fraternities and bar the music would be too loud and there will not be enough seating areas available. Therefore, everything becomes more sexualized, the dancing is cruder, and the only talking done is suggestive. But most importantly, due to the segregation, the men don’t really get to know the women they are trying to sleep with. Thus, liberating themselves from the guilt and from thinking they committed rape, since the women become just “faceless victims”. For instance, the text states, “The exception to this rule is when men hook up with women they admire.
In uttering these words, Lady Macbeth accuses her husband of being too feminine. She notices that he is too feminine and humane to kill the king. Even though they are quite powerful already in society, the Macbeths believe they are still somehow without purpose. Their marriage itself is an obvious indication of this as neither seems content with the qualities of the other. Lady Macbeth especially expressed criticism towards her husband for her wants in him.
Finch’s household at first seemed amusing but was proven otherwise. It is slowly revealed that he actually advocates for sexual relationships between children and adults.

This leads to Burrough not having a solid base of education which makes it harder for him to secure a job in the future.
“Bad girls” violate patriarchal sexual norms in some way: they’re sexually forward in appearance or behavior, or they have multiple sexual partners. Men sleep with “bad girls,” but they don’t marry them. “Bad girls” are used and then discarded because they don’t deserve better, and they probably don’t even expect better. They’re not good enough to bear a man’s name or his legitimate children. That role is appropriate only for a properly sub‑ missive “good girl.” The “good girl” is rewarded for her behavior by being placed on a pedestal by patriarchal culture.However , patriarchy objectifies both “bad girls” and “good girls.” That is, patriarchy treats women, whatever their role, like objects: like objects, women exist, according to patriarchy,

They go through life being criticized by siblings and people around them and makes them feel even worse about themselves than they already do. Some children are even forced to dress up as the opposite sex as a form of humiliation and punishment. A male would be forced to wear a dress and makeup, and sometimes begin to identify as the opposite sex later on in life. “Sexual sadism is the perversion of erotic instinct in which the suffering of a victim not generally enjoyable but intensely arousing to the point of orgasm”(Sexual Sadism).
