Their enticing sexuality, he believes, tempts men to behave in ways they would otherwise not. A visit to the “flophouse” (a cheap hotel, or brothel) is enough of women for George, and he has no desire for a female companion or wife. Curley’s wife, the only woman to appear in Of Mice and Men, seems initially to support George’s view of marriage. Dissatisfied with her marriage to a brutish man and bored with life on the ranch, she is constantly looking for excitement or trouble. In one of her more revealing moments, she threatens to have the black stable-hand lynched if he complains about her to the boss.
Slavery seemed to hurt Douglass’s mistress simply because she chose to let it. Being a slaveholder made her feel that she was better than he was.

She was once a very compassionate and caring person, but in making a complete change she made his life miserable, and she, no doubt,
However he had a tragic flaw but him confessing leads up to his tragic death that causes the audience to feel sympathy. John Proctor’s downfall is initiated by a human flaw which was his inability to control and resist his desire. When his wife Elizabeth got sick began to catch feelings for Abigail.

When Abigail was talking to Proctor she says “She is telling lies to about me!
People who have been cheated on will start to feel sorry for Bundy because they know how it feels to have to catch the one you love in the compromising situation. She then goes into a spill on how the man must have never loved her at all. She cries out, “didn’t love me ain’t no fool”. This is very logical because any man who has ever really loved a woman could not bring himself to being unfaithful. She goes into a description of how love has let her down and she will not be strung along, this builds pathos and ethos because she gets herself out of the situation by leaving him.
Curley’s wife is first introduced when candy describes her to George. Candy says ‘she got the eye’ which implies she spends her time staring at every man she encounters. Following that he also calls her a ‘tart’ indicating that she is a woman that is sexually suggestive.

The audience discover that Sheila ‘used the power as a daughter of a good customer and also of a man well known in the town to punish the girl’ by getting her sacked from her job after ‘having caught sight of this girl smiling at Miss Francis’ and admits ‘If she’d been some miserable plain creature, I don’t suppose I’d have done it. But she was pretty and looked as if she could take care of herself’.

Although Edna has taken control of her own life, she is still not happy with her life because of the many different types of love she has experienced. Alcee loves her but she only uses him as an affair while her husband is doing business. Robert truly loves her, and she felt the same way about him, but he can’t have her, because her husband already owns her.

Most women wouldn’t speak up against their man because then society would see them as rude, unrespectful and uncompassionate women, which then would ruin their reputation.
