1. The audience sympathizes with Nora because she is like a bird with broken wings. She so desperate to do things, and impress people but she is held down by Torvald. Nora can't express who she really is, and can not live her life to the best of her abilities because she is being held down by her broken wings, which have been broken by the hand of her own husband.

I have been both victim and offender in domestic violence. I was never beaten or frightful of a lover, but if arguments got heated I used to easily throw something, push or slap. In the community where I was raised it was not uncommon to experience some type of domestic violence with your partner. I have learned through faith mostly, but also maturity to keep your hands to yourself and not accept any behavior of anyone putting their hands on you.
