Come to my woman’s breasts, / And take my milk for gall,”, she prepares herself to commit to the murder of King Duncan to allow her to have more authority and become Queen of Scotland. She wants these evil spirits to take away all those qualities that make her feminine, almost as if
She basically questions his man hood at one point and and claims she would slay a baby for him. In return this motivates Macbeth to man up and slay Duncan. To make sure Macbeth goes through with the homicide Lady Macbeth gives him incentive , " We fail/ But screw your courage to the sticking place/ And we'll not fail..."( Shakespeare 1.6.59-61). She states that if
This power structure is kept strong by making failures out of oneself and taking away any independence the women may have including the wives. The handmaids are raped and forced into childbirth and the wives are equally imprisoned because they are married to the masterminds of such a hideous society. I cannot imagine living is a society where my choice to have a child is stolen from me. Society that will punish with death or torture if I decide to rebel against child birth. Birth is a gift given to a woman’s body from GOD.
In Gilgamesh Aruru the goddess who created Enkidu. Women are suited for the creation of a man being that they bare children. Her creation of Enkidu was vital to the fact that Enkidu’s role was to be the companion of Gilgamesh. Shamhat is the woman who seduces Enkidu into sleeping with her. This causes the animals to flee from him being that he know been exposed to humankind.
When she foams at the mouth during her transformation, the foam makes the grass on the ground wither and die as the poem says “Her mouth foam’d, and the grass, therewith besprent, // Wither’d at dew”. This suggests that she has some form of evil within her body that causes all living things to die when her foam comes into contact with them. This portrays Lamia as a villain as it shows that she is not able to live in the real world due to this evil that supposedly lies within her. It could also show that her body and spirit are so impure that they taint all living things and so she should be kept away from the real world; she should stay within her own ethereal world. This links in with the fact that she is a serpent and all the negative connotations associated with being a serpent, which leads back to the Bible, to the fall of Adam and Eve, where the serpent tempts Eve to take the apple from the Garden of Eden.
/ I would, while it was smiling in my face, / have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums / and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you / have done this” (Lady Macbeth, I, vii, 63-67). Now we see here that Mrs. Macbeth has a little bit of power over her husband, and when she wants to make a point, she does it, and she does it well. Now does this demonstrate courage? By this point in the play, she has come up with a plan to obtain what she thinks is right for her and her husband, and has convinced him to go through with the ultimate sin: killing the king. I believe that Lady Macbeth is full of courage.
Young girls and women are “subject to both clitoridectomy-the excision of the clitoris-and infibulation-the cutting away of the labia and the sealing of the wound to leave only a tiny opening for urination and menstruation” (34). This shows the lack of care for the women they mutilate. These unethical and unsanitary procedures often ended in death from either the procedure itself, infection, or debilitating anemia. The uneducated Muslim women “have been told it’s written in the Koran that they must do these things” (35). This is just one example of the way men misuse texts in the Koran to justify the repression of women.
Abortion Shadd Campbell PHI 103 Informal Logic Instructor: John Moore 03/04/2012 Abortion is when someone wants to end an pregnancy. They will have the baby removed from their body. There are two types of abortion. There is the traditional pregnancy, or the medical abortion pregnancy. The traditional one is when they go inside the uterus and suck the baby out piece by piece.
Saying it’s against God’s will and they are murderers for killing their baby. They will state facts about the baby saying they have fingernails, or that they are already a human that’s going to be killed. Women will change their mind and either have the baby when they know they are not ready to support a child, or they will terminate the pregnancy themselves resulting in major pain and possible death, all because they do not want to face these anti-abortionist or their mind would get changed by
