In essence she is a dictator and takes advantage of the other workers, and the patients. Nurse Ratched humiliates the poor patients, which makes them lose faith in humanity, and lose their dignity. They no longer feel like they are men because during the therapy meetings she always makes them talk about topics that are reasons for why their life is horrible. During the therapy
(Macbeth I, v, 26) Lady Macbeth made Macbeth feel bad about himself, by lowering his manhood and bravery. Lady Macbeth deceives everyone so well that people were scared to tell her about Duncan’s death, not thinking she can handle it. “Look like an innocent flower /but be the serpent under it” (Macbeth I, IV, 65-66) this means to look innocent and pure but to be evil on the inside. At first Lady Macbeth is able to keep her cool and not think anything of the deed. Macbeth on the other hand cannot sleep and starts to see things.
She also constantly lies about her age and relations. Another example of lies appears when Blanche is raped by Stanley. Eunice advises Stella to ignore the incident which is, in actual fact, lying to herself. The theme of lies is found again in ‘Atonement’ through
Guilty Guilt is inevitable when one does something wrong. This feeling of guilt is present in Acceleration by Graham McNamee when Duncan tries to save a drowning girl but fails. Guilt also exists in The Penance by Osaki when a family’s gardener, Octavia, kills their cat and is disowned by the children. It is also present in Call Me Mr. Guilty by Loudon Wainwright III, when the speaker realizes he treats an individual poorly. Guilt affects these characters mentally overall in many ways.
She also starts to blame people for her miscarriage as well as herself. Mariam and Rasheed’s relationship soon starts to fade and they begin to lose interest in each other.

Mariam tries to do whatever she can to please Rasheed, but none of her efforts seem to work.He begins to become overly abusive with Mariam and the abuse is consistent.
Blanche's lies became the source of her nervous tendencies as well, such as her excessive drinking problem and her obsessive protection of her age and appearance. She went as far as to sneak drinks behind the house-keepers' backs and lie about it to charm whomever she was speaking to, be it her sister or her object of 'desire', often commenting something along the lines of 'one is my limit'. Blanche used alcohol to churn up her reality and make it more bearable, adding to the weight over her character that was designed to make the audience nervous. Her issues with her appearance and age have roots in her past when she was betrayed by her first love, and, is implied, was desired by another man from the husband that she had loved so innocently. This had led to her fighting a feeling of undesirability and loss of confidence, believing firmly that if anyone would want her, then she would have to be perfect, like the 'moth' that the playwright had made a point to emphasize
Also all the women here are not getting along because of our race, religion and different skin. This is really bad because we should be getting along and helping each other to get out of this messed up place. The cause of this probably due to lack of resource: food, stuff and other things and also fear which they can’t think straight. William am trying my best to keep them from separating and to get along together because this will help us survive from the Japanese soldier. One night a women name Wing sneak in some medicine to save Mrs. Roberts because she was really sick and people didn’t notice but among the girls they have a snitch in group.
I feel bad and sad for the victims, because a woman can’t do anything when a man punches her. “Abusers often attempt to control and isolate victims in an effort to guard the secret of abuse and because of their jealously of any attention their partners may give or receive from family, friends, or coworkers” (Gagné 19). As the time passes, women will have bruising, bleeding, and scars that will never heal. A man hits a woman probably because he wants to act “macho”. He might be drunk or he only does it because he likes it.
The Aunts teach the Handmaids at the Red Centre about how women are now protected and respected. In reality, Gilead is turning women against women. The girls at the Red Centre are supposed to testify about their past lives, and when Janine confessed she was raped, the other Handmaids didn’t sympathise with her at all but were forced to condemn her that the rape was Janine’s fault because she led them on. And Offred admitted that “We meant it, which was the bad thing”. The condemnation might have started out because they were forced to but eventually the Handmaids enjoy comdemning each other.
