The most prominent woman in the novel is Nurse Ratched. Nurse Ratched exposes the men’s weaknesses by getting each of them to point out each other’s flaws. Kesey shows that when women hold leadership roles, it takes away a man 's ability to be a man and leaves the man with physical damage. In the story, McMurphy explains to Harding about Nurse Ratched and how she is manipulating the men, using her influence to emasculate them. He says, “The hell with that; she’s a bitch and a buzzard and a ball-cutter, and don’t kid me, you know what I’m talking about” (Kesey, 61).
2.2.2. Hostility in The Great Gatsby That the novel shows certain hostility towards women is seen also in other female characters of the novel, namely Jordan Baker and Myrtle Willson. According to Parkinson, every time when the women of The Great Gatsby make an effort to move outside the social conventions of their class and all three suffer for it (92): Myrtle Wilson is ripped open and destroyed; Jordan Baker seems to have lost not only her integrity but also her femininity and Daisy is tempted three times to break out, but each time is easily dissuaded, and returns to her captive position, retaining it finally through the collusion of Gatsby and Nick, who do not reveal that she was driving the car that night but was unable to control the powerful vehicle (92). Myrtle Wilson and
After analyzing the song “Honor to us All”, we can see that the women are judged on looks and not personality. An investigation of “I Hear America Singing” it is revealed that only men could get an education to go to work and provide for their families while the women are restricted to housework; unequal superiority based on gender. Finally, the analysis of the short story “Lamb to the Slaughter”, women are not suspected to do anything because they are too innocent. These are examples of everyday life for women. Women are always judged based on their looks and not their character and personality.
Besides, it can be seen in the movie that women were used and did not even taken seriously. After fulfilling his needs, Bond left Solage deceiving her by ordering beverage. When he comes back he learns that she was tortured and killed. Moreover, these subliminal messages may cause such problems as violence against women in accordance with Katz in video ‘A Violence against Women it is a Men’s Issue’ (Katz 2012). In contrast, Vesper is demonstrated as smart, ambitious and beautiful at the same time.
Money, power, and success have blinded people into thinking they are in love and it has led to these women being oppressed. Tom and Gatsby in this book are what is called the patriarchy. According to Revise Sociology, the patriarchy is “The systematic domination of women by men in some or all of society’s spheres and institutions.” In Tom and Daisy’s marriage; they are both having an affair, Tom wasn’t at his child’s birth, and he oppresses Daisy physically, maybe by accident, and socially, by not allowing her to go wherever she wants to go. In Tom and Myrtle’s affair; they are both married, yet they have this affair, she is dependent on him because he oppresses her economically and psychologically, and he also oppresses her physically when he broke her nose. In Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship; she is having an affair with him and he psychologically oppressed her with his money and wealth only to get the idea he has of her as his “Golden Girl.” Fitzgerald’s argument is, when love is not the main reason for a relationship it will lead into oppression of women.
Companies would ignore the women’s compliments of them being sexually abused and receiving sexual harassment. Its disappointing because this companies where the biggest cleaning companies and still had problems resolving these types of problems. I think it’s unfair because if this same problem happened inside an office or in a higher position, the company would have taken an immediate response to this problem and probably terminated the abuser in that same time. I think these companies de-value women’s work, because they see it as a simple task that they don’t need a degree or certificate to do it. Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of
Also, in the time of Romeo and Juliet, these expectations were traditional and they had never been questioned. In contemporary times, women are not perceived as the servant to her husband, and society has changed greatly to come to this point. This perspective enhances the idea that the characters had not been aware that their social expectations oppressed both genders. With this, it can be understood that there were social expectations that held these characters hostage and oppressed both
