It so happens that Petruchio is looking for a wealthy bride and does not care about her behavior. Near the end of the play, Kate displays her submissive self through her monologue of how a woman should act around her husband. What’s ironic about the speech is that it isn’t docile at all. As she starts the beginning of her speech with, “Fie, fie!

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”.

This is proven as she creatively reshapes the central value of Marriage and women and the preconceived ideas we had about these central values before immersing ourselves in Letters to Alice on first reading Jane Austen. Prior to reading letters to Alice, most readers would condemn Mrs Bennett’s behaviour and obsession in pursuing marriage for all her daughters. We are introduced to her obsession immediately from the very first page of the novel “A single man of large fortune; four or five thousand a year. What a fine thing for our girls...you must know that I am thinking of his marrying one of them.” The heightened tone of obsessive excitement highlights the fixation of marriage for the women of Austen’s context. With Austen inclusion of Mrs Bennett’s obsession from the very start of the novel emphasise that this value of marriage is most common among all women in Austen’s context.
