In this particular play male - controlled values and society has been criticized. It also displays the social norms which operates women as a tool in silencing the female's speech. The word "silence" is a very small word but has deep sense. As the title includes the word 'silence', it has varied stages of senses. Actually, it means the order of judge for sustaining silence in the court - room but symbolically, it suggests officially silencing the plea of weaker gender for justice.
