The role of women in society has changed in many ways over thousands of years. However, in many some circumstances the roles and rights of women in societies thousands of years and miles apart seem all too similar. In the works Antigone and Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, both authors have interesting takes on the roles of woman. In Freud’s work, Freud seems to echo the voice of the Victorian Age by saying how sexual gratification and unsuppressed unconscious drives are reserved for men and only men. However if Sophocle’s Antigone is analyzed it can be argued how the character Antigone embodies a man in Freudian and Greek terms, while the character Ismene exemplifies the emblematic female of the Greek and Victorian eras.
