The wallpaper is at first a great annoyance to Jane as she claims that it is confusing and contradicting. Jane was a writer and was not permitted to express herself through the means of writing. She is not only affected by the physical restraints of being inside the room alone, but the yellow wallpaper is dreadful and fosters only negative creativity.

Her father caught in the act and without even asking Lily what happened told her, “You act no better than a slut” (24). He then proceeded to, “[Pour] a pound of grits the size of an anthill onto the pine floor” and told Lily, “Get over here and kneel down.” (24). The ramifications of a parent, especially a father figure to call their kid a slut causes so much emotional damage. Not only did her father ignore Lily, which also added to her trust issues, she developed self confidence and self image issues due to this. She only saw herself as an inadequate woman, and never as a beautiful, intelligent, woman who deserved better than she had.

Emilia's relationship with Iago is not like any other relationship, he treats her badly, he is quite rude towards her. Iago constantly disrespects her. He never seems to offer her any sort of affection, and he always talks trash about women in general, ‘’wildcats in your kitchens, saints in your injuries, devils being offended’’.

They were never judged as the people that they were, but only by the colour of their skin. She was assumed to be a bad influence on the children, and an unfit feminine figure. She was disrespected and not surprisingly treated as a “slave” by Scout’s aunt and Atticus’ sister, Alexandra, who was also brought into the Finch’s house to rub off “positive” attitude on the children. Another aspect of racism in To Kill A Mockingbird was towards Tom Robinson, a black man who was accused of raping Mayella Ewell, even though he was paralyzed in his one arm, making him unable to lay a hand on her, let alone rape her. In the end, after a long trial, he was pleaded guilty, even though his lawyer, Atticus Finch, proved he did not do it.
The novel Lord of the Flies portrays an imbalance of power between characters, like Jack, Ralph, and Piggy. Throughout the novel, Jack and Ralph are constantly against Piggy because they believe they have a greater sense of authority. Piggy genuinely tries to help and give ideas but is always shut down because of the great imbalance of power between the boys.
