Emilia’s obedience to her husband forsakes her and Desdemona. Othello becomes increasingly jealous and persuaded, by Iago, who has planned this to happen and end Othello’s life. In conclusion, Othello demonstrates that power means nothing without control over ones fatal flaws.
The lovesick Roderigo for instance, was deceived by him. Iago used Roderigo’s love for Desdemona, Othello’s wife, against Othello. He promised Roderigo that he would put an end to Othello so that he could have Desdemona; he failed to mention that the end he had in mind was the homicide of Othello’s innocent wife. Another person is Emilia, Iago’s wife. Iago uses her stupidity against Othello.
Instead of begging for an explanation from her husband, she praises Desdemona even during her own death and this can be viewed as an ultimate declaration of loyalty. Emilia is not only infuriated with her husband, but also possibly feeling a form of guilt herself as she feels that she too inadvertently helped to kill Desdemona by providing Iago with information and belongings of Desdemona that he requested. The unfolding of these events as such leads to heightened emotions that the characters display through their actions and words. This scene is one filled with extreme tension (because Iago acknowledges that his wife's explanation will lead towards consequences for his actions) and anger.

Because of Gertrude’s refusal to acknowledge her sins, Hamlet becomes even more personally motivated to kill Claudius for revenge. Queen Gertrude, though ignorant, has a huge impact on the play because her betrayal and abandonment motivates Hamlet to get revenge. When writing Hamlet, Shakespeare created a complex play that relies on the roles of two important women to aid the progression of the plot. Although Queen Gertrude and Ophelia rarely speak, they function as a way for the men become informed about Hamlet’s mental state and motives for madness.
The main characters Daisy, Myrtle, and Jordan each display pertinent roles within the story representing how women’s roles were defined by their relationships, often times they were objectified, and how they were overruled by male dominance. In” The Great Gatsby” the social, cultural, and emotional expectation of women seems to be in contradiction to women who are meant to empower others. The three main women within the story are not given substance; instead they are more defined by their relationships. Women are dependent upon their partners because marriage defined ones social status or success. This dependency stemmed from the idea of success.
His machinations are so effective because they flow consistently. From the very start, Iago's manipulations are driven by the desire to take vengeance to those who anger him. Othello angers Iago over the position he gave to Cassio and it's because of this Iago calls for revenge by making Othello kill his wife. In Act 1, Scene 1, Iago and Rodrigo are talking among one another in regards to Othello not choosing Iago as his lieutenant and how Rodrigo yearns for Desdemona. Iago formulates a plan to get back at Othello and also to help Rodrigo achieve his aspiration for Desdemona.
Desdemona is, “at once the property and an angel of selflessness… that looks forward to the bourgeois age and to its conception of women” (Rose.284). Her intentions are so pure that she blames herself for her own death, saying “a guiltless death I die” (5.2.125). Her love for Othello is so strong that she will not even point her finger at who actually killed her. She would rather blame herself for his doing’s, than being the wife who deceived her husband. Her devotion
In the wake of listening to the prescience told by the "wyrd" sisters (the three witches), Macbeth is loaded with need and develops into an aggressive man for expecting the throne, and being delegated as the thane of cawdor. All around the play, the ladies are always associated with evil, right from the earliest starting point of the play, beginning with the "wyrd" sisters. The three witches are indicated as vindictive creatures. They give of a quality like being an evil figure, who controlled each persons 'fate', and likewise, they were women. The agnostic part of the three witches is held with their examination to the Fates and the showcase their disagreeable behavious, for example, making potions.
Anne is confused and emotionally unstable which makes her more susceptible to Richard's charms. Anne's dramatic role in the play is to reveal Richard's power to charm and manipulate which he does exceptionally. Although the audience know of his true intentions and that he does not plan to 'keep her long' we are glad that he has succeeded because he is the typical villain that we love to hate, although Anne must be corrupt to succumb to him and his charms.
