Role of Females In the nineteenth century women were perceived in many different ways Two noted nineteenth century writer were john Stuart Mill and Henrik Ibsen Even though most of their stories were greatly different they did share the common thought that women are their own people and should be free Mill described women of all classes as the unwilling subjects of more powerful males He saw a potential for social change Mill compared the subjection of women to that of other subject classes in the history of culture His most original contribution was his analysis of the malefemale relationship and his explanation of how that relationship differed from that of master slave Ibsen was also deeply concerned with social problems He explored many themes including the conflicts between husbands and wives Ibsen wrote a classic drama of female liberation in 1879 called A Dolls House The play is about the awakening of a middle-class woman She is in trouble and looks to her husband for help but when he cant help her she realizes her meaningless role as a doll-wife She recognizes her responsibilities and finally sees her role as a human being This brings to life the psychological tension between male and female that Mill had analyzed earlier The role of the nineteenth century woman described by these two authors is clear to me They both see women as equals to men that should be respected and given responsibilities Without these two things women become just possessions
