The representation of females in” Frankenstein” by “Mary shelly”
Women in Frankenstein were not represented on their own merits. They were often silenced, bossed around, or treated as second class citizens and used as stepping stones to continue the story. The female characters had no depth of their own but instead added depth to the male characters and allow expression of their emotions. It is almost a disturbing realism of what fiction reflected of society’s’ prejudices against women a mere 100 years ago.
In the novel women are seen as very silent, they seemed overpowered by men and completely pushed to the back seat during many parts of the book. Every point of view that is told in the story was from a male narrator (Victor, Robert, the monster) which just reinforces the women’s second class role in society. A female perspective was of no importance or value in the way the events panned out in the novel.
The fact that the narrative is a great bulk of letters written to the silent sister of the monster’s creator displays a non-importance of the female role in the story. Margaret although named is never described nor is her opinion sourced or considered.
The death of Justine is a good representation of the way women are thought of as lesser beings. Men pressured Justine to say she did do the horrible deed but in reality she was innocent. At the trial she knew her words meant nothing to the men when she proclaimed, “God knows how entirely I am innocent. But I do not pretend that my protestations should acquit me; I rest my innocence on a plain and simple explanation of the facts…” (65) “But I have no power of explaining it…I am only left to conjecture concerning the probabilities by which it might have been placed in my pocket” (66).
An example of how women are used as tools in the book is when Agatha, the young daughter, was used to help the male monster learn English and experience how humans interact. Other than that small part in the novel, she is a baseless character, unimportant and unrewarded. She is...

The news said nothing of rain (because you checked it to make sure how your day would go). You dont think anything of the “just know” moment, and instead you leave it behind. On
