Upon reading the chapter from Junger’s book, I was drawn to the status of women in the Western and Native American cultures. The rights women had in the Native American culture are similar to the rights men have in today’s culture: the right to marry who they want, divorce, and the right to sexual limitation. In August Wilson’s Fences, Rose Maxson are faced with the challenge of forgetting and forgiving the wrongdoing of her husband, Troy. As a result of the western cultural beliefs, Troy felt like because he was the man of the house and the provider, he had the right to step out on his wife and she should deal with it. The mentality that men have the right to have sex and engage in a relationship with anyone they want and women should just deal with it has become a crutch for men.

Gender Roles in the Play “Fences” Gender roles are different behaviors that are considered acceptable among both sexes.
