From a New Woman to a Victim
In China, the position of women becomes higher and higher, but discrimination and violence are existed all the same. There are a lot of women who have the same experience with Desdemona. The intention of this study is to tell the importance of women’s independence in this modern society.
My attention was first directed to introduce Desdemona and the good points of her character. This is because she is a new woman in the first two acts. Then I put much attention on analyzing the reasons of her change. Last I pointed out that women in modern society should learn from Desdemona and try to be independent. However , the independence is not mean to stand against her husband or her father, but it means to find her own position in the society and establish a positive outlook on life. Women should be independent not only from spirit, but also from finance.
