Bloody Chamber Entrapment

“Entrapped, imprisoned and disempowered” To what extent do you agree this is an apt description of women characters in the Bloody Chamber?
In Carters provocative reworking of fairy-tales there is much that is familiar, yet also bizarre in the way that women are presented.

The Bloody Chamber, the first and arguably one of the most disturbing and harrowing stories in the collection challenges the gender stereotypes and entrapment of women. Initially, the young, virginal female narrator becomes entrapped and imprisoned physically and psychologically by the sinister Marquis into the “unguessable country of marriage”, yet seemingly complicit in her disempowerment, she is sure "she wants to marry him". Physically trapped in the "amphibious place", "neither on land or water" the young girl is in a liminal stage of her life, a virgin, yet "exiled into marriage" she is possessed to stay in the "castle of Murder" with no means of leaving. The narrator is also psychologically trapped, tormented and oppressed by the Marquis mocking her innocence, "Have the nasty pictures scared baby?" Carter emphasises her entrapment and powerlessness through the dominating Marquis representing the conventional patriarchal male figure, forcing the narrator to subjugation and ignorance through their marriage.
Furthermore, the narrator is disempowered sexually as Carter represents the sadomasochistic Marquis as "impaling" his wife through vulgar and graphic language "shriek and blaspheme at the orgasm", and " a dozen husbands impaled a dozen wives", emphasises the powerless of the young girl in having no say of whether she wants to be involved in sexual activity, suffering the pain of the Marquis both physically and mentally....
