In the books The Awakening by Kate Chopin and 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez are both in a different time period and both have a different view towards women in their society. The Awakening goes against women and who they are and thinks of them poorly. Women struggle for freedom and are presented as weak individuals.

However, she claims that because class was invisible in the girls ‘social life, the school blame their sexualized style, their rejection of prep’s values and their lack of school success for their class differences. Most important, Bettie claims that the lack of cultural capital also affected the working class girls because it intersected with their race and gender to influence their class futures. For example, Bettie argues how upwardly mobile girls had to performed whiteness and the school sanctioned femininity just to possessed the prep’s dominant cultural capital. At the same time, girls who didn’t possessed cultural capital were victims of generalizations and stereotypes that affected their class outcomes. As a result, many of the working class girls were destined to follow rough paths or the same low paying jobs as their
The stereotypical roles of women in society in the 1890’s were to tend to the house. They were looked down upon by men and young boys alike, they had very little freedoms, and most importantly, they were not given the credit they most definitely deserved. Many married women followed these traditional societal roles in terms of marriage. However, many early modernist writers aimed at influencing other to breaking free from tradition, creating new and impactful lives for themselves. The short stories “The Revolt of Mother” by Mary Freeman and “A Pair of Silk Stockings” by Kate Chopin both utilize the modernist marriage cycle to persuade women into deserting the traditional societal roles of marriage placed upon them during the late 1890’s
Gentility affected many aspects of society in the late eighteenth century into the early nineteenth century. Into the early nineteenth century women still experienced educational discrimination compared to men during this time. Educational discrimination means that women during this time had a subordinate quality education compared to men. The discrimination that the women experienced can be seen through the limited amount of schools for women as well as the lack of relevant subjects that were offered in the schools.
Mallard is described as having wrinkles that “bespoke repression” to show that her voice and free will has been repressed in marriage. When Chopin wrote The Story of an Hour females had few career opportunities, and lacked the ability to vote, so Mrs. Mallard is used as an archetype of the voiceless women in marriage and society. The argument put forward shows that it is wrong that females must be without the “possession of self assertion” in marriage and life instead they should be on equal footing with males. Chopin uses the setting in the Story of an Hour to further display the power dynamics because the housewife is merely a guest in her husband’s
Women were deprived of education two and half centuries ago and even today, mainly due to the social, cultural and religious norms. The social issue is the one of the factor which affect girl child
Due to the lack of education in women, they are only able to perceive and comprehend at a superficial level. They lack the knowledge and moral compass to know what is right and wrong as they only have themselves to evaluate their opinion. As a result of this flawed and highly unfair education system, women face many challenges. One of the challenges would be that women became highly vulnerable to men who compliments the women well. Additionally, women were powerless against men who monopolizes knowledge which results in blindly abiding orders of men.
Adolescence can be a hazardous and perplexing time and for teens, girls especially, and they do not deserve to have their authority figures teach them that their bodies and their natural human desires are things that are shameful. No adult should teach a child that they should cover or hide their bodies in disgrace. For preteens and young adults, living in one 's own skin is already hard enough, the added disrespect is not at all necessary or helpful. Abstinence only curriculums often promote sexism and can leave young people, especially girls, with the impressions that doing something that is very natural somehow degrades them, lessens their worth, or makes them dirty. This is detrimental to not only the way women view themselves but also to the way that men perceive female sexuality.
As such, lower class women were likely more subordinated because of their affiliation to the domestic sphere, and their inability to enter the public domain. The difference in the status in relation to women’s domestic lives are shown in the Mrs. Minnie Wright character, being subjected to scrutiny and oppression by George Henderson, suggesting that she is an “unfit housewife” (Glaspell 180). The point also made here is that women were said to be the “queen of the castle”. George Henderson’s criticism of Mrs. Minnie Wright’s housekeeping skills suggests she could in no way have been queen of the castle and be subjected to such criticism. The observation of Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters’ comments about Mrs. Wright was one of empathy, and relational, by responding to the men about the tediousness associated with cleaning a house and operating a “farm” (Glaspell
Wollstonecraft credited the general female population’s inability to achieve these components to their unequal opportunities to educate themselves outside the realm of maintaining their home, their beauty, and keeping their husband entertained, “One cause of this barren blooming I attribute to a false system of education, gathered from the books written on this subject by men who, considering females rather as women than human creatures, have been more anxious to make them alluring mistresses than affectionate wives and rational mothers” (102). She saw this as a direct attempt by the male driven society to distort the women’s ability to enhance their reasoning capabilities and securing their place banished from public life spheres. Catriona MacKenzie, author of “Reason and Sensibility: The Ideal of Women 's Self-Governance in the Writings of Mary Wollstonecraft”, recognized Wollstonecraft’s stance on the importance for women to gain the ability to heighten and sharpen their reasoning skills, “In her defense of equality, she puts a great deal of stress on women 's capacity to reason and on the idea that virtue must be founded on reason” (38). She understood that only through having a reasoning ability can the women find true equality. However, it is also through this reasoning ability that women will be able to examine and understand their own sexuality for
Women in poverty are much more vulnerable to sexual and economic exploitation by men. They may have to take up sex work to provide for their children or family, and if they do so they have less room to negotiate safer sexual behavior - it is the client 's choice whether to use a condom or not. These women are denied access to health services on the basis of their profession and are reluctant to come forward for diagnosis and treatment. Poverty also forces people to sell sex for money. In many developing countries, and Many states across India, huge areas of sex work have sprung up as a consequence of lack of economic opportunity.
Women are also constantly, fabricated, discriminated, and disrespected. In some countries, women are unable to receive equal education as men. It’s tremendously unfair for someone to not receive education if they’re a woman. Gender inequality only lowers a woman’s self-image and self-worth. Should women stand idly by how the media perceives them?
