To Surrender Self Worth for Society Too often in the community of Mango Street, a women’s independence is compromised for the greater authoritative figure, men.

The people of the neighborhood grow to learn the ways of those before them, only to carry out the confinement of the women and oppression of the men. What is most appalling is that the women learn to accept their roles as helpless and incapable. In the novel The House on Mango Street, Cisneros uses the motif of gender roles to develop the theme that because women are often inferior to men, they view themselves as less important and must rely on men to determine their role in society.

And this misfortune adds still more troubles to the grief we have.” (Euripides, 231-35). Medea explicitly states her grievance for all the women in marriage and the sexist idea that the life of a women depends solely on a man.
