The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, depicts women as weak persons, who are expected to submit to men, and whose only access to power is through dishonest means. None of the females in The Crucible possess extreme power, but the truthful, pure-hearted, and family oriented women seem to be even less powerful than the others. Elizabeth Proctor and Rebecca Nurse are two of the less powerful women in The Crucible. Both of their lives are led by an instinct to serve their families and communities . Elizabeth Proctor is convicted in participating in witchcraft even when it seems obvious to her loved ones and most others around her that she had never involved herself with demonic forces .
The first scene, “The Plastics,” begins with Cady being tricked into skipping health class with her new friends, Damien and Janice. As Cady comes to the realization that they tricked her, she chooses to stay with Damien and Janice rather than go to class. Waters chose to portray Janice and Damien as the only two students pushing the social norms. Damien is, as Janice puts it, “too gay to function,” whereas Janice is stereotyped as a “dyke.” This is the only instance in the film where we observe gender roles being interchangeable, as well as the only time we observe two characters who seem not to care about being accepted into the higher parts of the social hierarchy. At this point in the film, Cady appears almost asexual, with no social stereotype attached to her.
as each girl finds a photocopy from the book about herself, she launches on another girl she suspects wrote it. it is complete “jungle madness” as girls jump on top of one another, slapping and hitting, even though none of them can prove who was the author of the pages. verbal bullying is a more subtle form of bullying, involving use of language. it entails threatening, spreading rumours, verbal abuse, gossiping, name calling and insulting people. verbal bullying is seen in Mean Girls where Regina tells Gretchen, “stop trying to make fetch happen, it’s not going to happen.” Gretchen is only trying to impress her friend, but Regina’s
Her plan to sabotage The Plastics eventually turns the whole school upside down and her cover is blown. Cady drops from the top of the social hierarchy and becomes hated by practically every girl in the school. This is an example of Incongruity because not every girl would actually hate Cady; she isn’t even the girl to blame in the situation. Regina George, the Queen-Bee of the Plastics is the real girl to blame. An example of Exaggeration in the film is when Cady meets Damien, the gay kid in school.
It is rather surprising that a novel written by the daughter of so prominent a feminist should be so strikingly devoid of strong female characters. Many critics agree that Mary Shelley’s Gothic novel Frankenstein is littered with passive women that suffer placidly, then expire once exposed to the transgressions of the world . An initial reading of the novel might produce the notion that Shelley had very little to say on the subject of women. The entire cast of female characters appears to remain within the domestic realm, quietly performing their duties as mothers, sisters, wives and daughters for the men. Some might even say Shelley ardently agreed with the position in which they found themselves and the securely fixed roles during the Victorian era.
She thinks that women have to have sex in order to be women. Lilith knew she was different from a young girl. She never let anyone, not even the little kids she played with say anything they pleased to. Even if it meant “She get a stiff slap”. Lilith holds herself to a high standard which Circe tries to knock out of her.
Women were looked upon as inferior; and incapable of the skills men were, so a woman’s role was mainly housework and nothing with manual requirement. From the first short encounter we share with Curley’s wife we see just one, prominent side to her. From this first meeting, a lot can be foreshadowed. Steinbeck focuses our first introduction with her on her appearance; emphasizing her sexual appeal and desirability towards men. ‘She had full rouged lips and wide spaced eyes, heavily made up,’ which suggests that the author wanted us to presume the worst of her before she’d even spoken and we set ourselves up for her to be a character we feel a lot of resentment for.
The team benefits from coaching because it helps team leaders monitor and increase productivity of their team. Team leaders can learn quite a bit about their team through coaching.

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.
“My boyfriend and all my relatives do not want me to become a stewardess,” repeats the girl and she does not even try to make her dream come true. Culture’s gender stereotypes imposed by the society girls live in, have an enormous influence on their lives. The conception of the Good Girl presented by Lucy Gilbert and Paula Webster in their essay “The Dangers of Femininity” clearly describes the proposed model of girls’ behavior. Good Girl should dedicate her life to other people, in particular to her husband. Being always ready to help she is obliged to forget about her own wealth.
