This was unheard of until now.

Well, let her know the stubbornest of wills
Are soonest bended, as the hardest iron,
O'er-heated in the fire to brittleness,
Flies soonest into fragments, shivered through.
A snaffle curbs the fieriest steed, and he
Who in subjection lives must needs be meek.
But this proud girl, in insolence well-schooled,
First overstepped the established law, and then--
A second and worse act of insolence--
She boasts and glories in her wickedness.
Now if she thus can flout authority
Unpunished, I am woman, she the man.
But though she be my sister's child or nearer
Of kin than all who worship at my hearth,
Nor she nor yet her sister shall escape
The utmost penalty, for both I hold,
As arch-conspirators, of equal guilt.
Bring forth the older; even now I saw her
Within the palace, frenzied and distraught.
The workings of the mind discover oft
Dark deeds in darkness schemed, before the act.
More hateful still the miscreant who seeks
When caught, to make a virtue of a crime.

We do not think from a feminist view that they would be this pushy and that they would give them time to think.
The quote might be more like "give it time"
Even though this quote already represents a bit of feminism we think a feminist author would have written it differently, maybe like this.
Feminist viewpoint
"But I will bury him; and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy; I shall lie down with him in death, and I shall be as dear to him as he to me, no matter what Creon may say, he is my brother and who is he to decide his fate when he is dead."
This may relate more to the feminist viewpoint because she is directly defying Creon's wishes and standing up for herself and her brother.
In this section we are going to dissect some quotes from Antigone and relate them to feminism and then rewrite them how a feminist author may have written them.
