To women who don’t take action about inequality and men who don’t support women, Inequality is all around the world. It is hardly unique in United States. Women always seemed the weak people in the family. Traditionally men were the ones who were supposed to go to work and make money, while women were at home doing housework or taking care of the children. And because men are the ones earning money, they automatically become the decision maker in the family, because as everyone thinks whoever has money is powerful.
Literary Criticism (A Raisin In The Sun) In Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin In The Sun”, the reader follows the life of the Youngers, a family struggling with financial issues and the inability to follow their dreams. However, with the promises of a ten-thousand dollar check in their name in regards to the death of Mama’s husband, Big Walter, the family finds hope in the possibility of a life better than before. One family member with especially high hopes, wishing to pursue a career as a doctor, is Beneatha Younger, Mama’s daughter. Despite much criticism regarding her role as a woman, Beneatha Younger stands against the status quo, striving higher for herself in this inspiring playwright, and showing the audience just how important strong female roles in literature are. Beneatha, at the beginning of the play, already expresses her difference in opinion from the family’s when Walter mentions her getting married.

The money that was put into the bank for the bar was all of the money that was given to Walter by his mom to split for his sisters college education. In conclusion, Willy Loman and Walter Younger are very similar in how they live their life. They are both people that want to support their family, people that treat their wives poorly, and people that fail to become rich and known throughout their life even though that is one thing that they want the most. This matters because it shows the families of them how not to live their life and to make things better for themselves. This shows that American values are basically all about money and trying to make life better by having more
Over not paying bills he put the town through the court case which cost money and so the town lost money there again. On the other hand some people think that since Mayella is older she should help out around the house and get a job to help out her father pay the bills, but instead she wants to be an innocent little girl with no responsibilities. However, she is left to take care of her siblings and the entire household. Also the town would not have lost all of that money on the court case if Mayella would have told the truth about who really raped her. But after all, Bob is the father and he should work and provide a good life, home, and living environment for his kids.
Hartmann defines patriarchy as “a set of social relations between men, which have a material base, and which, though hierarchical, establish or create interdependence or solidarity among men that enable them to dominate women”. Therefore Marxist feminists argue that because the male is often the one going out to work and earning money to support the family that he has total economic control over his wife and children (family) which can negatively affect the family as he would be able to manipulate his family as he liked as he would be the one in control. Women are therefore denied financial independence in the patriarchal family
Gatsby is not able to be seen the same as Tom because he has worked for a living and he comes from a low- class family. Family Experience McLanahan and Parcheski (2008) state, “Families are the primary institution for raising children, and family experience play and important role in shaping children’s life chances” (https://www-annualreviews-org.libproxy.csustan.edu/doi/10.1146/annurev.soc.34.040507.134549). Gatsby did get experience being with his parents. He did know that being poor he is not able to make true the dreams that he has. American Dream Gatsby relates to the American Dream.
Feminists say that men take total control in the family and women are expected to be submissive, which lead to exploitation. However, as society has changed, women are now participating in any employment and still take the responsibility as a mother to their children. Diversity within the family has increased dramatically, family structures such as single parents, homosexual families (gay & lesbian) and blended families (two adults in marriage that have children from previous marriages) has become more acceptable
Patriarchal system is a social system in which men hold primary power. In family life, patriarchy is a system of relation between men and women where men dominate women and women live under pressure. The male figure-brother, father, and husband- hold the primary power and they set rules and rigid strictures for their sister, daughter, wife and expect them to obey their each and every instruction. Ibsen in this play deciphers that women’s role is limited to the domestic area. Nora has only sacred duties as a wife and as a mother.In this connection, we can pertinently cite what Virginia Woolf in her work A Room of one’s Own asserts that,“Men have treated women as inferiors for many years.
In recent decades, the number of married couples has been decreasing steadily. Premarital cohabitation is known as the main reason that causes this unexpected consequence. Cohabitation is an agreement that two people without marriage decide to live together, share the households and others living costs. Proponents of this issue argue that moving in together before getting married makes people less interested in the marriage life. While the opponents disagree with this trait and debate that unmarried cohabitation would encourage the pairs decide to tie the knot together, and improve their matrimony.
