"The rules of society might change, but the actions of society and the idea of the pack solidifying itself by turning against the individual is still as relevant today as it was back then. If you get a divorce, you’re not going to necessarily lose your children or be ostracized by society, but it is much more likely that the woman will be dragged over the coals than the man. The woman will be held morally accountable. The idea that there is complete equality is ridiculous—we’ve only had the right to vote for less than a hundred years."
- Keira Knightley, when asked how her character Anna Karenina is shamed by society and how the story connects to modern day issues affecting women
