In the 19th century, there is no much rights for women, women have to respect their husband and family. There is no much opportunity for women, so they don’t have any choice for their own life, career and freedom. That why the family is anything for women. That why when Mrs.Mallard heard the death of her husband, the world was break by prices for her. For instance, the author uses “she did not hear the story as many women have heard the same, with paralyzed inability to accept its significance.
The Refuge of Loneliness “If you think love will drive you mad, try loneliness.” (Xavier). Although love may blind an individual, loneliness will transform them into weaker versions of themselves, in which they take disputatious actions.

In this society, Curley’s Wife is heavily neglected by those around her, which is also proven through the lack of her legitimate name. Therefore, she goes out of her way in order to meet her needs and desires, but eventually leads to her death.
Hedda is a victim of all the negative qualities that can be imagined. Ibsen has tried to move away from the stereotypical women by sketching feminist dramas but yet when he deprives the woman of her doll-like exquisiteness and angelic beauty, he still remains confined to the stereotypical women rather he makes them monstrous and treacherous. In my research, I will look out to these questions that How can a loving wife neglect and torture her husband? How can she insult her husband and his relatives? How a female can negate her child?
When she found out that Mr. Mallard was dead, she felt free from the male abuse that she had been a setback of since the day she and her Mr. Mallard were married. Marriage, in the story of an hour, it appears to be the husband having total control over their wife.

In the process of wanting to gain honor, he had backstabbed Medea by demoting her from the status of a legal wife to that of a concubine. The words “disowned her” help to emphasize on this fact. When she was with Jason, she had put on the face of Athenian women but when she lost her only connection with Athens she turned into the barbaric animal who couldn’t control her impassionate emotions anymore. The plot is seen to end right after Medea does justice to herself by destroying Jason’s new family and by killing her own children.

Today marriage is acknowledged as a commitment between two people who love each other and want to spend eternity together, but marriage has not always been perceived like this. During the 19th century in America marriage was much like a contract, where women were to give up many of their freedoms to uphold their husbands’ demands. Too often for the women of the 19th-century, rights were taken from them and the rights they did have were always being infringed upon. “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin is a great representation as to how married women felt oppressed. In the short story, Mrs. Mallard suddenly finds herself a widow and grief quickly erupts within her.
A married woman in Victorian era had no financial independence. A woman was supposed to be a delicate creature that should be cared for by her husband. Women were commonly treated as household objects rather than person. Let us now look at the portrayal of women in some of the famous literary works of this particular era.

Women were not allowed to vote, own property nor be accepted into prominent leading positions. Instead, many were required to stay in the home and care for the family which mainly included the well being of their husband.

What she is explaining here is that her Aunt, made sure to make she had taken care of herself, which was untypical of a married woman. The typical married woman did not need to put the extra effort into making herself pretty as she had already landed a husband. Her Aunt should have spent her time taking care of the home her husband’s family had provided. All of the blame is placed on the women, none towards the men, as if a man has no control over his sexual desires. The Islamic women and Kingston’s aunt were told that their bodies were not their own, they belonged to their husband or the men of the village and they had to do what they were told.
Where the poet accepts herself as a freak and described herself having a flamboyant lust. In actual meaning freak is referred to as extremely unusual or unlikely or abnormal, where as in this poem freaks refer to the poet and the women especially the Indian women.

Therefore, the poet accepts herself as a freak, this shows her strong opponent against the society.
