Bette Davis said, “When a man gives his opinion, he 's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she 's a bitch.” Feminism was always looked at as women fighting for the same rights that men have always had. A lack of feminism is just the opposite. Someone losing their femininity by allowing themselves to conform to men, to break the bond every women has gone through to break the barriers. In Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, Catherine shows her flaw in femininity over how her conformity to every man to show society 's 'norm ', her quest for money and not love, and she is foolish for thinking men can rule her life. To start off, Catherine has her flaws in her femininity. She had been around boys her whole life, always drawn to do things just like them. Since Catherine was the only girl in her family she was looked at as the innocent baby. Today, families that have older brothers and younger sisters, the sisters are being protected by their older brothers. Hindley never stood up for Catherine as most brothers would for their sisters today. Even though she was seen as the baby of the family, she showed the people around her who was boss. Catherine imagines the bird as having freely moulted the feather she has picked out of her pillow, but the bird was as subject to vicissitude as she now is, pathetic in its longing as she will be in a few minutes, lying back on the much-criticized pillows, ‘her face bathed in tears... our fiery Catherine was no better than a wailing child!
