You were just forced to do Miss Havisham’s bidding by having your heart broken by her man-killer as she put it. Just stop with you many “Beautiful Estella” shenanigans and try to win over a much more gentle lady of society. Sure she may have opulence, wealth, and a slight sense of looking could on the outside but on the inside Estella is nothing but a wicked being polar-opposite to her outside.

Joe may have been a little rough around the edges with society but he cared for you something you Estella could never do.

Speaking generally, Chopin's life and family heritage consisted of women who broke the mold, so to speak, most being working, something practically unheard of in that time period. Reactions to her first published works were mixed at best, cauing somewhat of a public outcry at the questioning of the societal morals of the community. At the age of 20, she married Oscar Chopin, then son of a wealthy cotton growing family. According to all accounts, he adored her wife, admiring her independence and intelligence, "allowing" her unheard of freedom. This is one of the examples of the misogynistic mindset in the age she was raised, that certainly fueled her writing.
For example, when Nora’s friend from school was married her husband was in complete control of his business. However, when he passed away the whole thing collapsed. He didn’t see her as ever needing to live without him and that is the impotence that was intended to be portrayed. At the beginning of the story, Nora seemed to like the lifestyle. As the play continued, she realized her need for independence, which is why I believe she took the lending into her own hands.
Though Heathcliff and Catherine become the best of friends, Hindley does not take kindly to Heathcliff becoming part of the family. When Mr. and Mrs. Earnshaw die, Hindley takes over Wuthering Heights and makes Heathcliff a servant, degrading Heathcliff.

Daisy’s voice was one of the main traits that kept her so intriguing and mysterious for Gatsby, which Nick mentions when he says, “there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget” (9). The excitement of her charming voice came from her affection for money, a trait of hers that Gatsby clearly dismissed until his tragic death. Daisy was most certainly a woman without mercy, which could be observed when she ran off with her husband after she professed her love for Gatsby, and shattered Gatsby’s dream of a happy future with her. Both women, Daisy and the Faery, can be symbolized as heartless demons that are in the form of temptresses, beautiful yet deadly. The main similarity and flaw that Jay Gatsby and the knight both have is their creation of a fixated, unattainable dream: a hopeful future with their idealistic lovers.
Arguably the most influential woman in the novel is Daisy Buchanan as she is Tom’s wife and basically who the story is built around . Throughout the novel Daisy is perceived as the naïve and shallow persona of the three women, still living life as though the man holds the dominant role, and women were marked as unimportant. Through the series of events that occur, the reader is very much aware that Daisy knows exactly about all of Tom’s infidelities, but yet still tries to ignore them and pretend to herself that they do not exist. She does this pretending because she knows that Tom has money and power and she enjoys the benefits she receives from living in the wealthy lifestyle that he brings. From being married to Tom they had produced a daughter, Pammy, who is very rarely mentioned in the novel and as a result, one of Daisy’s only mentions of her daughter is to state that she is happy to have had a daughter for she can grow up to become a “beautiful little fool”.
