The majority of women seek high stature through marriage, but woman are ultimately defined by their wealth. If a low class woman wants to have any kind of life outside of obedient servitude than she is pressured into marrying and if a woman of high class wants to marry she will be giving up some of her authority to stay submissive to her husband which will fuel the patriarchal societal ways. The gender norms in the nineteenth century were contorted to benefit the men more than the woman and only place the burden of social pressures on woman. Jane Austen's Emma goes beyond a simple love story that ends with three marriages; instead she leaves the readers wondering if these marriages will continue after their so called happy wedding day.
Austen, Jane. Emma New York: Penguin 1816

- Mutuality and Patriarchy in Macbeth Since the beginning of recorded time, the basic human distinction in human social order has revolved around gender; our sex at birth determines the role we will play in our society, the status we will hold in our culture, and even the structure of our daily lives. The biological reality that women can give birth and men cannot has led to a habitual consciousness of two sex classes, and, in the past, these two classes coexisted with equality in co-operative communities; however, Marilyn French contends in The War on Women that as men began to build what would become patriarchy, or "male supremacy built by force," the female class became disempowere...

- Patriarchy in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility Despite the fact that Jane Austen has become what Julian North describes as a “conservative icon in popular culture” signified by her depictions of “traditional class and gender hierarchies, sexual propriety and Christian values,” the novel _Sense and Sensibility_ provides, if not a feminist perspective, a feminist discourse lacking in Emma Thompson’s film version (North 38). In this essay, I attempt to argue briefly that the novel, which initially seems to uphold cultural norms of sexuality and does little to question women’s subaltern position, can be read to undermine the patriarchy and especially male-controlled courtship rituals....
