Thirdly, the king has difficulty in trusting and confiding her, in spite of fulfilling his will impeccably. There is no need for him to test Griselda, if he really loved her, he would not test her so badly. Additionally, Griselda need not have been tested to prove her worthiness. She is a perfect, beautiful and wise lady. Patient Griselda can be powerful and independent, if she wants to, but she does not use it.
Antonia, as hard-working as any man or woman in the West, never reaches Jim’s definition of success. Yet, he still views her through “rose-colored glasses: “She lent herself to immemorial human attitudes which we recognize by instinct as universal and true… but she still had something which fires the imagination” (p. 261). Jim has and always will perceive Antonia as a fleeting emotion and an idea of rugged yet lovely strength. The tragic flaw in his view of her is this: Antonia is not an unsinkable pillar of fire and bravery. She is but a woman.
Liberty is an inspirational character for every little girl. She maybe not be as intelligent as Equality but she still is her own person, who has the backbone to defy the manacles of her society.

In a way, Shakespeare is implying that when women are allowed to make their own decisions and do what they want, it never results in anything beneficial. Gertrude chose her new king and in the process contributed immensely to the downfall of her son, Hamlet. On the other hand, Ophelia, Hamlet’s lover, is the perfect model for a young lady in those days. When her father advises her to steer clear of Hamlet, she immediately obeys him. She does what she is told, not questioning why, but accepting that that is the way that things are to be.
Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable". Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
On the other hand the Nurse is always the one having those cherishing talks with Juliet. The Nurse has always been more of a mother to Juliet, Lady Capulet knows that but she never does anything to improve their relationship.“Your love says like an honest gentleman, and a/ courteous, and a kind, and a handsome, and, I/ warrant, a virtuous. (2.5.59-61). This demonstrates the nurse and Juliet having a relaxing and loving talk together, about Juliet’s true love. Juliet loves talking to the Nurse but Lady Capulet on the other hand, just tells Juliet what to do and they never talk unless necessary.
To many people this personality would not come off as appealing, but Gatsby had fallen in love with Daisy, her uncaring personality had not bothered him, it was just something she could use to help herself get ahead in life. Like her husband Tom, they both cared about what was best for themselves. And poor Gatsby may have never mattered to Daisy at all. Thought of in harsh ways, “She’s a woman of ‘Vicious emptiness’ of ‘Criminal Amorality,’ a ‘destroyer’ and ‘femme redeemer.’” (The Problem With The
Meryl says that “Well, for me, there is no, there is no difference between a private life and a public life. My, my life is my life, is The Truman Show. The Truman Show is...a lifestyle. It's a noble life. It is...a truly blessed life.” However, although she has chosen out of her own free will to be a part of The Truman Show, she is role-playing being Truman’s wife because she is not is wife (although she might be legally but not mentally).
Mariam also suffered the torments imposed on her by the men in her life, sharing a similar fate as her mother, Nana, in a way. Nevertheless, Mariam is not a fallen warrior but a victor. Contrasting from Nana, Mariam fought her battle with resistance rather than endurance. She broke free of the oppressive culture and realized her self-worth in the end. Fariba is one of first non-submissive females of the novel and was portrayed as the woman with a progressive mindset.
Jane obviously shows her independence by deciding on her own without outside influence. However, when Jane finds out about her inheritance, she also becomes financially independent which puts her on the same social standing as Mr Rochester. Although they are now financial equals, the fact that Mr Rochester is blind makes him dependent on Jane. When Jane marries Rochester, she proves both to herself and her “reader” that her marriage is based on nothing but love which saves her
Some are free-spirited, while others abide by all the rules society places on females. Edna from Chopin’s The Awakening and Janie from Hurston’s Theirs Eyes Were Watching God differ greatly from each other. Edna is a more free- spirited woman who does not conform to anyone’s rules, while Janie who although has instances of rebellion, she does what she is told. Janie unlike Edna married Logan Killicks
In the sixth and final stanza she decided enough was enough. “She decided to become a woman and though he still refuses to be a man she decided it was all right”, she basically gave up on trying to be perfect for the man in her life, she was already perfect and supportive and the man in her life didn’t see it. The poem Woman by Nikki Giovanni is really inspiring to all woman and young girls. This poems makes us as woman open our eyes and makes us realize we are perfect and we don’t have to have the man in our life’s tell us we are. We have to move from the negativity and spread our wings and fly.
The judgmental community that Hester is a part of, ceases to affect her actions. She refuses to leave, and raises her daughter the best that she can- with love, respect, without revealing to Pearl what makes her different. The society sees Hester as corrupt, but does not call Pearl the same. Pearl’s name even represents purity, something she definitely was not born of. However, Pearl is able to grow up as normal as possible, though not a lot is said about her life and she does act a bit
One more reason Calpurnia is a better mother figure is because she brings Jem and Scout up just a little harder than a mother would. Atticus says to Aunt Alexandra, “she’s never let them get away with anything, she’s never indulged them the way most colored nurses do. She tried to bring them up according to her lights, and Cal’s lights are pretty good” (Lee 183). This statement shows that by not letting them get away with anything she is trying to help form them into contributing members of society. This statement also shows Atticus’s trust in her raising his kids right, which is another reason why she is a good mother figure.
‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’” (Fitzgerald 130). Gatsby continues to use words that convey possession. He expresses that Daisy “never loved” her husband Tom as if Gatsby knows this for certain. Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him.
