Exam style question on idealisation and misogyny

Exam style question on the theme of gender, asking students to respond to the following critical viewpoint: 

Desdemona and Emilia become the victims not of marriage but of male characters who view them through the opposing but mutually reinforcing cultural lenses of romantic idealisation and anxious misogyny.

Includes an extract from Act 2 Scene 1. Teacher's notes provided.
