In essence, these plays define the use of violence towards to women to preserve male gender dominance in The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster and Woyzeck by Georg Buchner.

Eventually, the violent execution of the duchess, at Ferdinand’s command, defines an extreme use of violence towards women as an example of male gender…
