Someone who is ready for a happily ever after should fulfill stability and reassurance on someone she might spend the rest of her life with. Every women is looked upon as weaker than a man, and by these fairy tales showing the fibs and lies that all women should find their lovers in a similar way is completely unfair to us. Cinderella should not have a happily ever after is because she is a passive person and doesn't stand up for herself. Cinderella is possibly eighteen or older and she still continues to get bossed around by her stepmother and stepsisters when we both know she can easily move out and start a new life. She is shown as passive person every single time her family bosses her around to do something and does what they say.
Being a messenger for Romeo and Juliet and letting them marry showed a giant amount of deceit towards Lord and Lady Capulet. She showed deceit towards them because her love was so forceful for Juliet. She just wanted the best for Juliet and her to be happy. Juliet was a like a daughter towards the nurse, the nurse raised her up and generate a motherly bond. Paris want to marry Juliet, but Lord Capulet told him “My child is yet a stranger in the world, she hath not see the change if fourteen years two more summers wither in their pride.
She did not want to hear anybody’s opinions or advice, and she felt as if no one would ever want to marry her. Her relationship with her father, Baptista, was not strong either and she believed that he did not have any concern for her. Baptista sends Petruchio to Kate so that he could get to know her better, and when Petruchio came back, Baptista asked how Katherine reacted. He showed genuine care for her asking why she was so unhappy even though she was finally getting married, referring to her as his daughter. She overreacted and immediately screamed, “Call me your daughter?
If you were pure, you had something to offer a future husband. By having this affair, Jacobs loses her purity, which was very important for women to have at the time; without it you weren't a woman. Jacobs appealed to her white readers saying, "You never knew what it is to be a slave; to be entirely unprotected by law or custom.... You never exhausted your ingenuity in avoiding the snares and eluding the power of a hated tyrant." (Jacobs 506) She couldn't find protection anywhere, from anyone. Her master was continually after her, finding new tricks to bother her, and attempt to seduce her.
However, another idea that has been more commonly researched in today’s society is that women and men think completely different and just do not understand each other. Steve Harvey’s book, “Act like a Lady, Think like a Man” is a prime example of the assumption that women do not understand how men think or how they feel when it comes to relationships. This book specifically, gives a direct representation of how most men function in relationships and it provides guidelines and advice for women from a man’s perspective about how to have a successful relationship. Furthermore, Steve Harvey’s book also explains many stereotypes that are common in today’s society about relationships and sex. “Act like a Lady, Think like a Man,” starts of by describing how men think and the status they need to achieve in order to feel like a man.
“Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much a higher degree; the pen has been in their hands,” says Anne Elliot, the protagonist of Persuasion (Austen 223). Austen wrote novels about women, and men, but the focus was more on the women’s lives and roles. She wrote novels that were meant to be read by women. In today’s society, the idea has arisen that Jane Austen books and the films based on them are “chick flicks,” and most men will refuse to read or watch them.
Although it can be argued that men and women are not at the same level, the gap between them has been reduced. Men do not want to women to outshine them for reasons other than being cruel. There are exceptions to every case, but for the most part, it is done without thinking that it can hurt a woman. A man’s ego, and to impress friends are key factors as to why men try to be superior. Saying that men don’t let women outshine them for their own self-image may sound sh... ... middle of paper ... ...h genders can act like they know what is going on when they truly do not.
Also, they will consider themselves to b... ... middle of paper ... ...r society. This is a sign of dependency because she does whatever the society wants her to do and do not consider what she wants. Disney shows that women can limit themselves from things men do however, it’s wrong because everyone has to fight for themselves in order to survive. Disney princess movies are inappropriate for young girls. People blame adult media for a child’s corruption, but they fail to see where it all started: Disney princess movies.
(I.i.75-76) and later treats her father in the most reprehensible manner, Cordelia denies Lear's unnatural request saying, "Sure, I shall never marry like my sisters/ To love my father all" (I.i.103-104). Her truthful refusal to proclaim total love for her father proves her to be the actual loving daughter but results in her banishment. From this first scene, the characters' alliances and allegiances are forged and all that follows is directly resultant. In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth must be evil in order to advance the plot. The strong love and bond between herself and Macbeth enables her to influence him and spur him to action.
She does not feel any maternal way towards her daughter, whom we hardly ever hear about in the story, and thinks that she is going to be just like her, "a beautiful little fool". Although it's clear that Daisy and Gatsby are in love, their love can never be. Like Daisy once told Gatsby: " I wish I would of done everything on earth with" but instead they each end up taking a different path.
