Gender Dynamics in Shakespeare

I believe I am already enjoying The Winter’s Tale more than Much Ado About Nothing. We see more outrightly feminist characters, both male and female, even though we also see the “blaming” aspect of men when threatened by the possible infidelity of a significant other. I have a feeling though, however, that King Leontes is not going to get his way to way Claudio did. He is already being reprimanded for his actions by King Polixenes and Leonte’s own subject.
