Linde: When you’ve sold yourself once for other people’s sake, you don’t do it again.” These quotes exemplify that Mrs. Linde wants to be a mother, and she was forced to leave last time. This is Mrs. Linde’s sacrifice in A doll’s house. The third female character in a Doll’s house that sacrifice themselves is Anne Marie, the nurse maid. She left her own children and came to Helmer’s home, and look after theirs.

Misogyny within society leads to the internalization of misogyny where women are then affected by it and direct it towards themselves and other women (Bearman et al.).

(29, 54) Despite the fact that Jolly was in a bad place, she still had people in her life like LaVaughn who were having a positive influence on her and her actions. For example, Jolly dropped out of high school at a young age because of her giving birth to Jeremy and Jilly.
