She, like many other women in this novel is unable to stand up for themselves due to their inferiorities compared to men. Also in another one of Gatsby’s parties, women were unwilling to leaving such the extravagant place. Their husband had used force in order to take their wives home, ignoring all of their protests.

In “A Dollhouse,” Nora is stuck in a marriage with a rich man that has no respect for her, looks at other women as sexual objects and is perhaps a bit disturbed. Nora’s husband Torvald, does not think his wife or any other woman for that matter, can have intelligent thoughts simply because she is a women (Mazur 17).

Also, even though it seems contradictory, she has no respect for her body or the rights of women, and is an insult to true feminists everywhere. The commonly used example of the Wife of Bath's so-called "feminism", is the incident in which she rips pages out of her husband's extremely sexist book. He proceeds to hit her in the head, causing her to fall to the floor in pain. This seems like an act of female liberation, but it is far from that. She did not think the horribly sexist stories her husband read to her were untrue.

For example, after she persuades Eljert Lövborg to consume alcohol, he ruins his reputation and loses something that is most precious to him: the manuscript of a book that he had been writing with Mrs. Elvsted. Although Hedda realizes the importance of this manuscript to both Lövborg and Mrs. Elvsted, she chars it. Because Lövborg and Mrs. Elvsted have put their souls into this manuscript, Hedda metaphorically relates her action to burning their child.
