This quote “[…] Let either of you breathe a word and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you.” Shows her desperation and truly violent mind while she tries to control the mistake she’s made, but to control this mistake she must control those around her who know of it. No one would dare to expose her if they feared so terribly, Abigail uses this to her advantage. At the end of the trials Abigail was beginning to be revealed by townspeople who found out that she was the main accuser. When she found out about this she decided to take all of Parris’ money, and run away from Salem with Tituba. This leaves the reader wondering, but can only assume what will happen to
It can be implied from this that Wolsey had the ability to obtain Henry’s annulment, but failed due to his lack of effort and his half-hearted approach. Furthermore, source 1 supports this view, first implying once again that Wolsey had good contacts and that he had the ability to influence them, “Stafileo has changed his opinion”. However, a lack of effort can still be seen here as he only instructed Stafileo of the facts. It is likely that source 2 is more reliable than source 1 as it was a letter written by the Duke of Suffolk who was not directly involved in the ‘Great Matter’. As the source is also from a letter, it is unlikely the Duke of Suffolk would not have feared angering Wolsey as otherwise the letter would have been private.
It illustrated how men had taken away the right for women to earn money from working, and men had also taken away the opportunity for women to get an education if they desired.

Whereas the first two authors both preach for equal women’s rights and for better treatment for women this author, Catharine Beecher, is more discreet about woman’s rights.
Fear of being compelled to provide sexual services for the Japanese distressed the nurses intensely. "We felt sick; we couldn’t eat", Betty Jeffery wrote . As they waited, Veronica Clancy said, to hear the "steps of the loathsome creatures" on the gravel path, "Nights were just hell" . Pressure was increased on the nurses when the Japanese cut off all food rations to the camp until the nurses complied. The nurses felt the same anger as the other women prisoners at their own lack of power and the same repugnance to be sex servants, and as women in the military they had additional worries.

Bledsoe says to the narrator greatly help move the plot of the novel. First, the narrator sees that Dr. Bledsoe is not who he thought he was. The narrator once looked up to Dr. Bledsoe because he thought Dr. Bledsoe got to where he is through hard work, not by manipulating and going against what he likes. The narrator lost the only idol he had, and in a sense is now all alone. He has nobody to look up to or to get advice from.

A couple of examples are spousal murder and rape. (Gen 14 2012, p.24-26) Women who murder their husbands no matter what the circumstances find it hard to be treated sympathetically by the justice system. This is due to the historical cultural stereotypes of women and the Judicial Myopia of the judges and courts. (Gen 14 2012, p.23) Historically men are given greater latitude when it comes to spousal murder as women are seen as a man’s possession and any deviance from that is provocation. (Gen 14 2012, p.24) Women find it difficult to plead provocation as they are expected to be submissive whereas male stereotypes suggests it is acceptable to be aggressive and abusive to keep the women obedient and in her place.
