Power of Man

The control of women by man has always been a part of every lifestyle, leaving little to nothing that women could to do about it. Throughout history, women were looked at as inferior because they were not men, and men were automatically deemed superior over women since day one. But why? Freud explains to us in his book, Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, that women are simply jealous of men and lust to be them, while men are superior simply because they have the male genital. Men have had a certain reign of power over women because of this and women hopelessly left to envy. Antigone shows this idea of man’s power over women, but contrary to Freud’s idea of women, a woman stands against, rebelling against the power of man.
