Portia is still listing meaningful reasons for Brutus to put faith in her, and ends up accidentally degrading herself whilst doing so. She says, “I grant I am a woman; but withal/ A woman well reputed, Cato’s daughter/ Think you I am no stronger than my sex/ Being so father’d, and so husbanded” (Shakespeare, II.i 294-298)? Portia is once again providing a window for the reader to see into the mindset of their time. Her words reflect that she is not accountable for her own worth and personality, only the men who sired or married her show her worth. Brutus, being one of these men, is being directly charmed, as well as possibly accused.
In addition, making the girls so stuck on the name of a person highlighted the illogical impression that religious purposes were the only reason women chose to marry a certain man and depicted it as rather foolish. Sarcasm is the primary technique used here as Wilde jokes on the “morals” of women during that period. Once again, Wilde doesn’t provide any solution to his opinion on women or the standards of religious purposes. Instead, he exposes the flaws and leaves the audience to question the
She leads her troop through negativity and rude words. She picks on girls like Daphne and Laurel because they are easy targets and help build up Arnetta’s inner self.

Lucy despises this notion almost as much as she loathes her mother and struggles with it daily. One concept she finds very repulsive is the importance of a woman’s image. She is disgusted by Dinah’s obsession with beauty and comments that “among the beliefs I held about the world was that being beautiful should not matter to a woman, because it is one of those things that would go away” (Kincaid, 57). Later on she mentions that “for the first time ever [she] entertained the idea that [she] might be beautiful”, but declares that she will “not make too big a thing of it” (Kincaid, 132). Lucy’s rejection of society’s emphasis on appearance frees her from the insecurities that are brought upon by a self-image based on looks.

You’ll grow up waiting on tables if somebody doesn’t change your ways.” She is told that if she does not dress like a lady she will be forced to work due to the fact that she will not get a husband.
