This paper discusses whether Ibsen's "A Doll's House" is still relevant today. The writer explains how Henrik Ibsen wrote "A Doll's House" to reflect his views on society and demonstrates through every action of his characters in the story the ill-effects of Nora's world. Ibsen shows the unjust society a woman was faced with during these times, and the writer here believes women are no longer forced to consult with their fathers and husbands.

From the Paper:

"While audiences in the 19th Century would have sympathized with him and scorned Nora, Ibsen demonstrates the unjust society a woman was faced with during these times. Nora was merely "transplanted" from her father's will and desire to her husband's, and for this reason she feels she must leave and go find herself. These are actions that most certainly would have made her a social outcast, but Nora is willing to take these steps in exerting her independence and individuality."
