For the female characters like Louise, freedom is almost like a secret pleasure which can always be experienced or even thought of after her husband’s death. It’s like the forbidden fruit to the women of the 19th century when it is a basic human right to all sexes. Through this story, Kate Chopin has shown how freedom is desired by all women but the thought of it is pushed at the back of their minds by being a married woman. Louise is capable to even think of the forbidden freedom only after she gets the news of her husband’s death.
