What are some links between "A Doll's House" and Antigone that would suggest topics for a comparative essay?

A comparative essay over these two works could examine the two female protagonists, Nora Helmer and Antigone. Both women live in societies that grant them no power, yet both are stronger than those around them and ultimately exercise great power through personal courage and sacrifice.

Another topic for comparison would be the role of men in each work, as well as the development of the major male characters. Some very interesting parallels can be drawn between Torvald and Creon.
