The stars of Freud's Introductory Lectures and Sophocles' Antigone are females. Though women were seen as inferior beings in the eyes of Freud, the actions of the female population were the driving force of Freud’s work. Without females, either Freud would have nothing to base his lectures on or he would have to change the topic of his work altogether. Similarly, all the action and major impacts were caused by a single, powerful female figure in Sophocles’ story. Every death and major event in Antigone can be traced back to a single female, Antigone. Although females influence Freud’s work in a less direct way than that of Sophocles’, both texts would completely change if women were removed from the picture. The following gallery includes visual displays that demonstrate the female driven impacts on society found in both texts.
