"Defied" in context

The word 'Defied' implies a person acting with defiance, a show of resistance or a refusal to obey an authority figure. This could refer to a revolutionary act or a bold gesture of courage, perhaps in the face of an oppressive regime. It could also be referring to a less heroic, but still provocative instance such as someone refusing to comply with an unfair policy or rule. Whatever the context, defiance often involves one pushing their own limits and refusing to back down in the face of opposition.

Defiance is not always brave or admirable, however, as it can easily be used to the disadvantage of another person.
