In addition, the summer that Mikage had spent with Yukichi and Eriko, was “summer of bliss in that kitchen”(page 59). This further infers the comfort that Mikage receives when thinking about the time she spent with her new family. This is shown because of the use of the word “bliss”. The kitchen takes on many roles for Mikage in the novel and all the roles Yoshimoto gives the kitchen are responsibilities of a family, which shows that Mikage had found a family from the kitchen. Through the use of symbolism, Yoshimoto wants to convey that Mikage’s love for kitchens is a parallel to how people should love their families.

In The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood portrays a dystopian society which forces women into reproductive slavery to warn of the dangers of a Christian fundamentalist patriarchal government. These women, handmaids, have no rights and are raped by their owners, otherwise known as Commanders, every month in hopes of elevating the depleting birth rates. Offred, the main character and handmaid, only wants two things: her freedom and her daughter, but both were stolen from her. Women in Gilead, like Offred, are not seen as individuals, but resources with their most valuable asset lying between their legs. This demeaning viewpoint of women is horrifying in that it shares perspective with current misogynists and politicians.
The book “Princess” written by Jean Sasson tells the life of ‘Sultana’, (The name of the princess, Sultana is a substitute for her real name due to the dangers she could later face if traced) a Saudi princess bounded by a strict society that she says define women nothing more than a tool to fulfill their sexual desires and bearer of their children. “From an early age, the male child is taught that women are of little value: They exist only for his comfort and convenience” (chapter introduction, princess). This book depicts how even the royal woman are beaten, executed and enslaved by their fathers, sons and husbands.

Just because a woman goes against what their husband 's or anyone in their family believe to being incorrect should not justify them to becoming horribly disfigured. Similarily, further into the novel the Pross story resonated deep into my mind. According to Nicholas D. Kristof, one of the authors of Half the Sky, Pross was kidnapped at the “thirteen” (11) and sold to “a brothel in Cambodia.” When Pross wanted to fight back and escape her situation, the “female brothel owner” punished her by taking one of her eyeballs out with a “metal rod.” The heartbreaking story of Pross is one of the many ways the individuals at a brothel break “the spirits of the young girls” (10). Kristof explains that the way the brothel business is able to thrive is by using the methods of raping, threating, violence, and embarrassing them to use these young girls for their sick desires. Once the girls spirit is completely destroyed this allows the individuals running the brothel to control the girls to the fullest.
