/ Is Romeo slaughtered and is Tybalt dead?”(3.2.70-71). This quote at the middle of the story shows that Juliet tells her family and the nurse what they want to hear from her, meaning Juliet doesn’t have her own opinion, so her family takes this as an advantage so they could persuade Juliet that the Montagues are evil people. So, Juliet expresses that she’s angry about Tybalt’s death, and wants to avenge her family member (Tybalt). In relation to this, this expresses that she’s loyal to her family’s interests and doesn’t have her own opinion based on her experiences.

Something that the men only brushed off as a joke when the women brought it up. The oppression of women was not at the top of the list in everyday conversation because people did not think it was something that was an everyday occurrence, however, Susan Glaspell changed this when she wrote her short play Trifles. The female characters stand up for Mrs. Wright and defend her from the scrutinizing remarks of their husbands and hide her dead bird that could have been used against her as a motivation in her trial for the murder of her husband. Susan Glaspell uses Trifles, a realist piece, to shows women 's oppression in everyday life, her text is very influential to the women 's movement by showing women they need to unite and stand up for one another. Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters are two everyday house wives during the early 1900 's but they do something very special and controversial.
I cannot be so unhappy, and live” (Chopin, 1894, p. 1608). Her mother’s response does not confirm nor deny these claims, and only asks Desiree to come home with the baby, for even her mother is unsure of Desiree’s true race (Chopin, 1894). Upon bringing the letter to Armand, he tells her to leave, breaking her heart. This letter foreshadows the event of Desiree’s suicide, killing not only herself, but her baby too (Chopin, 1894). Armand, having tossed her away like a worthless piece of property, has brought Desiree to the point of hopelessness.

Evil is all around even in good it is just portrayed differently. Through reading the story”The Possibility of Evil” by Shirley Jackson, it is evident that Miss Strangeworth follows not only a outward social value system, but also an inward social value system.

Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters find several items that were “women things”, such as an unfinished quilt and a bird in a box with its neck snapped. These items are key symbols, not only to the play, but to the motive of the murder. Mrs. Wright never revealed that her husband had done cruel things to her, but her husband was known to be harsh at times. Mrs. Hale brings up how Mrs. Wright lived before she married, “I heard she used to wear pretty clothes and be lively, when she was Minnie Foster, one of the town girls singing in the choir. But that-oh, that was thirty years ago.” (Glaspell) After marrying to John, Minnie did not have a multitude of freedoms as before.
