JOAN: "Captain: you are to give me a horse and armor and some soldiers, and send me to the Dauphin." (1.50)
By ordering her "better" around, Joan's defying the submissive role that society has trapped her in.
JOAN: "Then your [Dunois's] older and wiser heads are fatheads: they have made a fool of you." (3.33)
