There is a sense that once MACBETH has achieved his wicked goals, Lady MACBETH will attain a position of equal power and authority within the kingdom, since without her, MACBETH would not have been able to rise so far and so fast. She was the main mover behind the plan to assassinate Duncan; she was one who constantly cajole, bully, and pled with MACBETH to go ahead with murder when he seemed to be getting cold feet.
