In doing so, she focuses only on the benefits of one being monogamous and presents only, what is in her opinion, the social problems typical of polygamists. Her obvious negative opinions of promiscuity are evident when she says “Promiscuous people are not happy.” (Bell, 2004, line 62) and “They are never satisfied with what they have, but continue to strive toward something that is always out of reach.”
C. 2010) thus meaning that a woman’s character depended on her ability to accept being the lowest status in society and abiding by the laws of men. There are three woman characters in Antigone who all portray different characteristics of a woman at that time. The first obviously being Antigone. She is so over come by the passion of doing the right thing by her family that she presents herself as a rebel.

John separates Jane from the rest of the Reed children due to her relying on the Reeds to keep her well as well as her being an orphan. Not only is Jane being discriminated against by John but also his mother "Mama says; you have no money; your father left you none; you ought to beg". This demonstrates how, even though Mrs Reed is Jane's aunt, she is still tormented by her and her children as Mrs Reed allows them to bully Jane. The fact that Jane is an orphan and is separated from her 'family' reflects the society she lives in and how she has no power against the upper class and patriarchal male just like her having no power in the Reeds household. Women and children were treated the same in the Victorian era; they were to be seen and not heard.
How does Martin portray the character of Manon and her attitudes up until the time of her Mother’s death? In the opening pages, Manon repeatedly refers to her husband as “him”, which is shown in the 3rd person pronoun which gives the impression that he has no respect and she has no respect for him, therefore he has not been given a name. This shows that Manon has a negative attitude towards her husband as she believes he does not deserve a name as he is unworthy due to the treatment he has given Manon. As a result, this leads people to believe that there is no love between Manon and her husband because if he was given a name it would show a loving connection. Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband.
As shown by Lloyd Jones and William Shakespeare in their respective novels, too much ambition for power and not being able follow one’s conscience leads to immoral acts that result in nothing but regret and guilt. Although the characters in both works have a sense of righteousness, they are unable to follow their conscience, which result in immoral acts. Dolores demonstrates this quality when she decides, against her righteous conscience, that she cannot take responsibility for the poor condition the village is in, but she could let the whole village suffer and let Mr. Watts take the blame for something she did. Although she “[lays] awake thinking –knowing what the right thing to do was” (Lloyd 112), she continues to let this valuable secret that could save her village, weigh on her conscience. Similarly, Matilda also makes the same mistake as her mother by keeping her mom’s secret from the village.

A miracle is just another word for hard work. In a world of hate, oppression, and abuse, two heavily misunderstood individuals fought against their set fate in order to prosper out of their hardships. Being abandoned by their parents at an early age, and being ostracized by society and family, the two had an unfortunate foundation to success in life. It is evident that women living during the 19th century had to live under atrocious stereotypes, and customs which limited the true potential in women. In Jane Eyre, and Memoirs of a Geisha, women were only viewed as objects and property owned by men.
