TITLE:  Essay on “The Treatment of Femininity”
(click on blue text colour above to read the work in full.)

AUTHOR: Mavarine Du-Marie

DATE: 28th April 2005

CITATION:

MEDEA, a play by Euripides
PYGMALION, a play by Bernard Shaw

“….In my own definition femininity is that ‘female maturity in the inner quality of character which expresses being a woman outwardly’. The male authors in their definition of femininity describes it as ‘instinct’ possessed by a woman in Pygmalion, this is the inner quality of femininity written by Shaw, and in the play Medea, femininity is described as ‘vindicating the cause of passion’ which is the outer quality that Euripides wrote in regards to what he saw in behaviour. But there are similarities and differences between the treatment of Medea and Eliza and their femininity….”
