and this is shown on the essay when she writes this ”If, by chance , I find another person more suitable as a wife than the wife I already have, I want the liberty to replace my present wife with another one” Really, is sad but is the truth, men do think women’s are objects they can’t take and leave when they want and demand things and expect to received without giving. As I read the essay it was stupid to see that they didn’t realize that all the wife’s duties could also be done by men, like cleaning, working, taking care of the kids, and of course pleasing their wife’s when she
Most young women dream of being married. At least that is the opinion of most male writers. In marriage women are portrayed as their ultimate goal in life is to serve her husband man, the man she loves. Her dreams are to give birth to her husband’s children and make his home a place of comfort to return to. However in the story “The Hand” written by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette the struggle that many women face is apparent.
Women were seen as a lower rank than men and so that’s why the Duchess being the strong and powerful main character is significant. She is shown taking control in Act 1, Scene 1 when she is with Antonio. It is during the marriage scene and she says, “I did vow never to part with it, But to my second husband”. This could show Webster as a feminist because she is the one doing the chasing after Antonio and all of the work to get him to marry her, rather than him doing it, like the typical man would. She is also being very forward and confident and Webster has made her the most important person in the scene.
Ibsen shows in the play that Hedda wants to be the powerful person in the family and lead a man’s life of power. Ibsen deals with the issue that women have very little freedom in this time and demonstrates how Hedda would like to have power and some freedom like men do. This is shown continually in a variety of ways. The first is how Hedda talks about, but with circumlocution, about sex and intimate ideas that were not to be talked about openly on a stage. This is shown when Hedda and Judge Brack talk in the living room about how Judge Brack could have turned up earlier but he would have found Hedda up in her room dressing.
What a wife it would be When a reader first looks at Brady’s essay one might think it was written by a man. However after reading the first paragraph the reader will realize that the author is indeed a woman and may be confused as to why the title is “Why I Want A Wife”. Brady gives a reasonable argument as to the unequal views on the roles of the husband and wife. By listing the many examples of a wife’s responsibilities, she hopes to sway a woman or man’s feelings and encourages them to perhaps modify the usual tradition of marriage and companionship. The audience she has chosen would most likely be women or married couples.
My aunt was forced to see like so many women in today’s society that men want to run the show and control as much conversation as they can. The commonplace that was executed within this paper was to underline how men across the world have shared the same view against women for years. For example, I used this sentence; our grandparents grew up in an age where a woman’s place was to provide affection for her spouse and home, to show that indeed the commonplace between men has become a bit disoriented. Men have shared these widely controversial statements, and thus I wanted give insight on a more influential society. As you can see, I wanted to point out that the commonplace should focus on men coming to terms to work together and correct the problems they have created through the years.
Shakespeare uses language and imagery throughout Act 3 Scene 5, Use of titles, Shakespeare presents patriarchal power in the technique ‘use of titles’ by showing the way Juliet addresses her mother and father, she says “it is my lady mother.” and “my lord and father.” This shows the respect she gives to her mother and father and that they have a higher status then her. Then Shakespeare presents the patriarchal power the parents have over her, they address Juliet as, “tell thee joyful tidings girl.” Shakespeare has used this technique to show the audience the power they have over Juliet, they also call her girl. Oxymoronic language, Shakespeare presents patriarchal power in the technique ‘oxymoron’ to emphasise or to bring two contradictory things together. “Day, night, work, play, alone, in company” Shakespeare uses this oxymoronic term to emphasise and exaggerate the fury of Lord Capulet and to let the audience know the horror of a daughter defying a father at that time. Alliteration, Shakespeare presents patriarchal power in the technique ‘alliteration’ to exaggerate Lord Capulet’s anger over Juliet and to show negativity.
Katherina and Bianca are to be married, according to Baptista Minola, their father, but Bianca the youngest daughter cannot wed until Katherina does. Bianca is seen as an acceptable, attractive mild woman who has many suitors whereas Katherina is said to be a “Shrew”. Petruchio is willing to take Katherina to be his wife as he wishes to “wive wealthily in Padua”. The conflict between Katherina and Petruchio, creates much of the humour in the play. Society in the Renaissance period was highly dominated by males, and they exercised their power over women quite regularly in
“A Room of One’s Own” by Virginia Woolf explores the concept that the power of patriarchy is an illusion that may be nurtured or destroyed. The patriarchy of Woolf describes has been constructed through men projecting themselves in women. ‘Women have served all these centuries as looking-glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of a man at twice its natural size.’ Women are complicit in constructing the illusion of the patriarchy because they know and are offered no other way of life. The looking glass is symbolic of the distortion that has been constructed, in which the perceived superiority of men nurtures the inherent patriarchy present in Woolf’s society. Men may have enforced the oppression of the female gender but it could not have been done without the aid of women in upholding the illusion that the patriarchy is based on.
We can know when Narji see her father as an employer to her maid has a relationship with her father. Then in Her, a woman is a victim from her husband, because her husband marry with another woman. The condition is that felt by both of the characters as a woman. And the third similarity is feminism of the characters, because the major character from The Picture by Nawal Al Sadawi and Her by Titis Basino is a woman. It can represent of feminism.
