But, instead she comes off as humorous, she ranks just above Hilly as a clear stereotype towards the white people.

(Ephesians 5:22-33) If Lady Macbeth respected Macbeth’s decisions in not wanting to kill the King, then it would not have led to the guilt’s and consequences they both faced at the end of the story.

Faludi states, “Unfortunately, our social investigators have not tackled ‘the man question’ with one-tenth the enterprise that they have always applied to ‘the woman problem’” (344). It is an emotional appeal by virtue of Faludi’s suggestion that this is “unfortunate.” She is, by extension, urging her audience to agree. This claim could also function as a logical appeal, as it clearly implies unfair treatment of the issue at hand. Faludi will later give accounts of mail brutality inflicted upon women, examples of sexual battery, assault and murder, all appeals to pathos

The Death of The Unborn Female American Dream Of Mice and Men, written by John Steinbeck, takes place during the time of The Great Depression; an era extremely difficult for women. The novella contains many iconic characters that serve as a metaphor to our societal standards. Curley’s wife is introduced just like any other; however, the emphasis on her feminine features are metaphoric to where women stand in society. In order to prove that society makes it impossible for certain people to attain The American Dream, Steinbeck objectifies, sexualizes, and kills Curley’s wife to show that women cannot reach The American Dream. Steinbeck uses specific vocabulary to objectify Curley’s wife; alienating her from The American Dream.

Natural ingenuity, instinct for what is elegant, a supple mind are their sole hierarchy, and often make of women of the people of the equals of the very greatest ladies.”(SSG 92.) Mathilde Loisel, was not honest with herself.
