Equality for All

Antigone challenges Creon

In Antigone, Antigone the protagonist, challenges Creon who is the major authority figure in the play (other than the gods that is). She follows her own morale authority, instead of the Creon's decree to leave him unburied. She follows the specific role of the woman at that time, but also violates it by disregarding his rules and burying her brother.

Liberation from nothing

In the Yellow Wallpaper, the protagonist is stuck in a lifestyle that would make all go insane. She liberates herself by creating her own world unimpeded by outside influences

Bottled up

In the story of an hour, the protagonist keeps her feelings bottled up towards her spouse, and was elated when she heard the news that he had died. One of the things that is notable about that era, is that divorce was unheard of, and woman here considered 2nd class woman.
