The feminist movement of Lawrence 's time continued to evolve becoming more powerful. However, D. H. Lawrence purports a fact of life that "men are fools," and that women follow patterns men set for them. Men don 't know what they really want, since most times once they achieve something, they move on to improved things. A man has this perception of how he portrays the perfect woman or wife, yet once he finds a woman of his liking, he will pursue her until he is satisfied and then immediately begins to see other women, which he now wants more. Women on the other hand are always looking for the right type of "pattern ' to follow so that they become more attractive to men. Usually after marriage, the woman 's pattern falls to pieces because men begin to admire other patterns and therefore other women.
Lawrence believed women of his day were unable to make a choice without the direction of their men and they were unable to control their emotions. He states that women need to become stronger, more powerful, and more independent. There is always something wrong with the female character that needs to be fixed. They did what was asked of them without much of a fight. It was not until women started standing up for their rights that they were heard and taken seriously. A woman can have just the same power over a man as a man might over a woman.
