Medea is alienated by society because she is an intelligent, foreign, powerful woman. The first reason Medea is shunned is her gender. In the patriarchal society of Ancient Greece, femininity is a faux pas on its own. On top of being a woman, though, she is clever and intelligent; these qualities were not admirable in a woman of her time. King Creon states that “a sharp tempered woman, or for that matter a man, is easier to deal with than the clever type who hold her tongue.” Medea is, in fact, clever enough to hold her tongue and stay quiet.
Such as women can not perform manual work as well as men, on the other hand, a man’s entire chemistry is different allowing him to be less emotional than a woman. Jane Addams and her colleague Ellen Gates Starr founded Hull House a place for down and out women. Jane treated these women as friends and ignoring their faults, became very close to these women. Being close to these women allowed Jane to understand their struggle but much of the information she gathered remained unpublished.

The insecurities of Maggie’s character are not just skin deep, much like my own. Her older sister Dee is very flamboyant and educated, both of which are threatening to Maggie who “eyes her with a mixture of envy and awe” (297). Maggie is intimidated by those around her whom she feels are better than she is. Although my insecurity is not as extreme as Maggie’s I still at times feel ashamed of the way I look or am susceptible to those around me. However as previously stated in my comparison to the character of Amanda I often mask this insecurity through a more confident persona, which Maggie’s character does not do.

Grace has a lot of way to walk in order to become in a great leader. First of all, I believe she should work in her self-confidence. At some point, I felt she was about to give up trying to lead her own friends because she felt they didn't respect her as a boss. That’s also an immature reaction. Talking about some skills, she need to learns how to differentiate between knowing her coworkers' feelings and control them so the work environment is not affected with the external situation.
Gilman shows this when the woman of the story says “I meant to be such a help to John, such a real rest and comfort, and here I am a comparative burden already”. She also shows that woman at this time didn’t really do anything for themselves, “Nobody would believe what an effort it is to do what little I am able - to dress and entertain, and order things”. The woman in the story is believing in the social norm and what her husband belittles her to be. She feels that she is a burden to her husband because she dislikes the wallpaper and continues to complain about how much it bothers her. He refuses to change it making her blame herself for not being able to cope with the “dull” and “flamboyant” yellow wallpaper.
