What follows is a complex story of human emotions, relations, freedom and frustrations. The family bonding and the love between the siblings is brutally tested when Anna decides to go to the court in order to get ‘right to her own body’. Her decision comes as a shock to the family especially her mother, and is threatening to tear the family apart. Should the family respect her right to decide for herself and let Kate die or force her to donate and curb her basic rights? This is a question to which there is no simple answer.
Being a daughter, she has minimal rights and is not entitled to do whatever defies her father. She is very defiant of her father, which is clearly shown in the first scene of the play. She argues and refuses to marry Demetrius for Lysander, but without prevail. She loves Lysander wholeheartedly, and will rather “grow, so live, so die” instead of marrying Demetrius. In act of love, Hermia refuses to marry the man Demetrius, despite knowing the very harsh consequences of defying her father.
Goneril and Regan pledge their love for their father, while Cordelia refuses to speak and when probed finally states that she cannot “heave her heart into her mouth,” (Act I p.7 96-97) that she loves him exactly as much as a daughter should love her father, and that her sisters wouldn’t have husbands if they loved their father as much as they claim. An enraged Lear disowns Cordelia and splits her share of the kingdom between the remaining two sisters. This is a prime example of the beginning of destruction across familial, personal and social aspects. Lear pits his daughters against one another in a selfish endeavour to boost his own pride, but in doing this he also destroys a very crucial aspect within the monarchy by removing the one daughter who has not saught out to destroy him and the foundation he had built for his kingdom. In disowning Cordelia this breaks the natural order of things because in doing so he has severed the natural bond that a father and daughter share, as well he has personally destructed himself with this decision because he has given up on his favoured daughter.
After she denied Tita and her love, Pedro’s marriage she gave the chance pour man to marry Rosaura, thus breaking Tita’s heart.

"I won't have disobedience," she tells her daughter "not am I going to let you ruin your sister's wedding, with you acting like a victim. You're in charge of all the preparations starting now, and don't ever let me catch you with a single tear on your long face, do you hear?" Tita suffered as a victim under her mother’s hand which looks kind of male brutality.
