Warren’s Profession, Shaw argues for a push towards equality for men in women which can be directly be seen within Frank’s role in the piece through the use of hyperbole and analogy to display the unfairness in the time period. Since the beginning of the play, tension has developed between Frank and Mrs. Warren given the fact that Mrs. Warren does not believe that he can provide a quality life for Vivie given his lack of skill paired with the fact that he essentially lives off of the church because of his father. Frank expresses his disdain of Mrs. Warren to Vivie by comparing her to an “old wretch” (Shaw 1812). Frank simply is appalled by not only the type of pioneering woman Mrs. Warren is but also that that she has a job that creates income for her and Vivie to live sustainably. Shaw crafts these nasty words to display how many men felt during the time period of a woman who chose to go out and make a life for herself.

The novels examples of Linda being ridiculed on her “hideous” appearance further serves to shed light on the sexist nature of the role of women being judged and men being the judges in western society. Moreover, the fact that “nobody had the smallest desire to see Linda” after her traumatizing experience with Tomakin which left her in bed rest, is set to apply a satirical comment on how after a woman has “lost her youth” she is seen as no longer useful to society (Huxley 153).

It seemed as though their only role was to appease the needs of men through sex, Ludwig once describes a scene where, “He’s put between two drunken women who’re not too proud to grope him for cigarettes.” (Haffner, 25). The boys’ attitudes towards women, and how the interact with them, showcases the lack of understanding Haffner had of women; how often times, they had to resort to prostitution in order to make ends meet.
