The rise of feminism in the modern society aims at creating a more liberal society, one that recognizes the women thereby giving them equal opportunities both in education and employment positions. The main responsibility of a woman is the sustenance of life in the society and for this. They deserve great recognition, not only support but equality to allow them to claim their space, one previously dominated by men in different societies in different ways throughout history. Feminists call for the creation of favorable societies because for a long time the men in the society have considered themselves better than they have considered women thereby apportioning the male child more responsibilities and privileges at the expense of the female child. The fact thus resulted in societies with more powerful males than females. Creating a fair society would therefore begin by stratification and an opportunity realignment to favor the girl child. Women are human just like men and for this they deserve equal treatment, human rights must apply equally and thereby address the different social issues that affect women at different levels in the societies beginning with the families where most women suffer under the pretext of the marriage. Additionally, more women continue to face negative criticisms and discrimination at the work place feminists therefore call for speedy ratification of the legislations to ensure the immediate apprehension and prosecution of exploitative men who continue to take advantage of women for their sexuality (Devoney 7). The creation of a society that offers the two genders equal opportunities is a prerequisite to the development of a society. It dictates the recognition of the female rights as human rights thereby defending them in their constitutions among other statutes of the country. This eliminates of abuse thereby resulting in the institution of stronger and more liberal laws that contribute in the creation of a developed economy. Among the integral roles women play, is the nurturing of children. Women conceive and give birth to the children in the society this implies that women sustain the future of the society by continually bringing forth the young to take over from the old. In addition to this, women offer their babies their schools; it is through their mothers that babies acquire the basic life survival skills. The longer time children spend with their mothers, enables the children to learn several important aspects of the society. A weaker woman in a marriage who exhibits poor mothering abilities results in less oriented children without adequate moral knowledge on their societies. The creation of a liberal society is essential in developing better mothering skills in women. With the increasing divorces in the modern societies, women retain the custody of their children thereby implying that the children grow up without the influence of their fathers.

Like every of Jane Austen's narratives, Emma is a work of fiction of courtship and societal manners. At the core of the recitation is the heading personality, Emma Woodhouse who is an heiress residing with her widowed vicar at their domain, Hartfield. Renowned for her lovely looks and shrewdness, Emma is fairly wasted in the little community of Highbury other than assumes an immense deal of conceit in her matchmaking talents.
The author states that Austen’s literary works heralded the transition in English literature from neo-classicism to romanticism. She saw life as it is, and not from the moral pedestal, how it should be! Her mastery of the subjects that she treated could be seen through her various down-to-earth characters.
Written at a time when conduct books were all the rage, Emma may have been Austen’s version of a book of manners or she may have written the novel to parody the genre. Whatever Austen’s intention, the novel holds a great lesson in proper conduct that is still relevant today about the hazards of gossip and the danger of interfering in others’ lives. Often also overlooked is the fact that the message of the novel applies to both women and men.
Meanwhile, books and other texts are the media through which this kind of information is passed to the new generations. In this novel, it is determined that the class system and the position of a person in the society was a fundamental aspect of social values (Byrne, 28).
The first sentence in Pride and Prejudice written by Jane Austen reads “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife” (Austin 1). This assessment of men and their needs begins the novel in such a way as to set up a thesis for the direction of the story within the novel.
In order to evaluate the feminist criticism approach in the novel, it is important to understand how we define “feminism”. The word feminism is relative to both the history and society in which we live. Therefore the ways in which we interpret the meaning of plot and what lies underneath it that causes us to believe in feminist approach.
Literary theory implies possible connection between language, definition, and consumption (Stern 322). This paper seeks to criticize “The Lottery,” a short story by Shirley Jackson. Such a literary criticism approach will use three points, credibility, emotional, and logical approaches of the author, which will be discussed in the paper.
In other words this character can be better understood by the short summary of the main events which occurred with Emma during the whole novel.A rich, clever, and beautiful young woman, Emma Woodhouse was no more spoiled and self-satisfied than one would expect under such circumstances. She had just seen her friend, companion, and former governess, Miss Taylor, married to a neighboring widower, Mr.
