    In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare portrays the plays female characters in two different lights. While late 16th century English women were expected to become wives and mothers, A Midsummer Night’s Dream does not adhere to the set gender roles of the time. This can be seen through the character of Hermia who is a daring and strong willed female that transcends established norms. On the other, the character Helena represents desperate and submissive females, which were more commonplace...
