About

The quality of mercy is not strain’d.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.

In The Merchant of Venice, Portia is a woman of wit, intelligence and determination. She argues in Court, donning legal robes, but through necessity obscures her gender to succeed in the patriarchal system.
