Portrayal of Women in Bram Stoker’s Dracula

Bram stoker, in Dracula, showed his point of view of women. He represented Mina as a traditional woman who is quite passive and submissive. On the other hand, he represented Lusy and the three beautiful vampires who are active, voluptuous and sexually aggressive. When he was born in 1850s, the era of “Victorian Noon”, the society was about to face the radical changes in the culture and politics so the position of women who were educated was getting improved in the society.

However, Bram stoker was a conservative and stressed paternalism so he considered ‘New Woman’ as a depravity person. On the contrary, he emphasized the traditional victorian woman. Furthermore, he expressed his hostile feeling against women. “for nothing can be more dreadful than those awful women, who were, waiting to suck my blood. “(p74, line15~16), “I am alone in the castle with those horrible women, Faugh! Mina is a woman, and there is nought in common. They are devils of the Pit! “(p87, paragraph 6).

From these sentences, we can see that Jonathan Harker abhors the three young women. It seems that Bram stoker detests the New Women. The group of people who called ‘New Woman’ acted so free and had a sexual relationship with not only men but also the same gender so that it brought about other social aftermaths such as venereal disease and homosexuality. In terms of conservatism, he regarded ‘New Woman’, considered a threatening group in the society, as immoral and anti-religious so it must be destroyed.

Also, he insisted that men had to got power to control those women and dominated the society. In conclusion, the society in which Bram Stoker lived has shown a movement to accept both sides of the conservative which advocates the past values and the progressive which incessantly changes for new values. I think that he did not just blame the new woman, but the imperialism which means ‘continuously developing the society using the powerful science’.
