Throughout Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the poet characterizes all women as dishonest. The first woman encountered in the story, Queen Guenevere, seems to be trustworthy and an upstanding character. Her beauty and power in the kingdom is highly renown and respected among all people. Later in the story, the Green Knight reveals that one of the reasons that Morgan Le Fay wanted to set up the test of the beheading game was in hope that it would have “caused her to die” in fear of the Green Knight (Winny 2460). Guenevere appears to be perfect, but she caused Morgan Le Fay to be so angry with her that Le Fay went to great lengths to try to kill her.

But, Ilon had another idea, she thought that main idea of the campaign must be what women want for them, instead of looking good for men. “Because I’m worth it”, (Gladwell, 2009, p87) was the last line of the commercial and it was powerful, because L’Oréal’s product began stealing market from
Furthermore, Lady Macbeth has a strong desire to neglect all of her femininity in order to gain strength and power. With these qualities she believes she will hold more power over Macbeth and his potential shot at becoming the king will be in her control. Once again, Lady Macbeth wants to rid all of her femininity, “I have given suck, and know how tender ‘tis that loves the babe that milks me: I would, while it was smiling in my face, have pluck’d my nimple from his bonless gums, and dash’d the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this” (1.7.30-32.) This quote shows Lady Macbeth’s ability to get rid of every ounce of femininity she posses. She is explaining how she had once loved a baby, but would kill him in a heartbeat for Macbeth and his potential success as king.
All of the makeup, hair products, perfumes, etc., are completely hurting women’s overall body image and self-esteem. Trying to live up to such nearly impossible standards is so taxing on women. Tyler is a six-foot tall, beauty, who has posed for Maxim magazine in just her undergarments, yet she found it important to tell young women not to look up to super models and to embrace their curves. I found this so interesting since she has actually been considered to have supermodel stature and looks, yet often jokes about her ‘freakishly tall stature’ or being an ‘amazon’ or ‘giant’. Her tone is definitely one of a sarcastic feminist.

(Donald Trump’s Gift to Women)” “I saw all this happen, and it knocks me out whenever I think about it. (The Great Al Franken Moment)” Her appeal to ethos is effective because it builds her authority and validates her credentials through her tone. Since she was present during the event and actually saw what happened in history as the years passed it convinces the reader of the author’s reliability. She also appeals to pathos by saying, “Some are lecherous bosses who think their power gives them a version of the right of the old lords to sample the favors of every girl in the neighborhood. Some are otherwise nice people under the deeply mistaken impression they’re so attractive no woman would mind a surprise hand up her skirt.

Owing to peer pressure and overt psychological trickery, Bernice now views the haircut as “the test supreme of her sportsmanship” (Fitzgerald 9). While it is clear to the reader that this assertion is overblown, Bernice perceives it as a necessary reality—the only motivation to launch her fully into “the starry heaven of popular girls” (Fitzgerald 9). In this way, Fitzgerald illustrates the deceptive power a party of like-minded people can have over the decisions of an
A powerful woman with ambition and courage. Lady Macbeth played by “Amanda Billing” at Pop Up Globe, is so tough that even the loss of her child doesn’t leave her devastated.
