My opinion towards Curley’s Wife, is that she can be a little too flirty at times. I understand that she is lonely when her husband is at work and/or at the whore house, but I think that she should be able to keep it under control. To be honest I hate her. I say this because she is always trying to get people in trouble, she’s always causing trouble, and she never once does anything on her own, she’s always has to go bother the guys, like Lennie. For example in Chapter 5, when Lennie is in the barn, getting all flustered and frustrated because he had just killed the pup on accident because he was play fighting with him, Curley’s Wife came in, and started bothering him.
Mayella was almost forced to say Tom Robinson raped her or her dad would have beaten her. Mayella has no power because she is very poor and she is a girl. In the 1930’s women had no rights and men did all the work. “Maycomb’s Ewells lived behind the town garbage dump in what was once a Negro cabin. Its windows were merely open spaces in the walls… What passed for a fence was bits of tree-limbs, broomsticks and tool shafts… Enclosed by this barricade was a dirty yard” (“DBQ Is Mayella Powerful 19 Doc A”).
In Of Mice and Men, Curley’s wife can be analyzed as being lonely and self-obsessed. Curley’s wife is very lonely because she is the only female on the ranch, and Curley doesn’t pay much attention to her. Curley would much rather talk about himself, and the only reason she married Curley was to get away from her mother. Curley’s wife had a dream of being in the show business, but she believed her mother sabotaged her career which again is why she married Curley. Curley’s wife’s loneliness also prompts her to become self-obsessed.
With her controlling husband and being the only woman on the farm, Curley’s wife is constantly ignored or dismissed,“ Well you keep away from her, ‘cause she's a rat trap if I ever seen one. You let Curley take the rap. He let himself in for it. Glove fulla
Many of the men on the farm are racist so they have no compassion for Crooks. This lack of compassion has made Crooks very lonely and isolated. When Lennie visits Crooks, he is talking to Lennie about how he is always alone or lonely and says, “I was talkin’ about myself. A guy sets out here alone at night..” (71). He knows that he is discriminated against for his race and does not think it is fair.
Notwithstanding, he has had controversy with almost everyone on the ranch. He abused Lennie, a mentally disabled man, he publicly exposes his and his wife’s sexual lives, and he treats his wife as if she is his slave. Moreover, the actions Curley has done are corrupt, but they are not solely because he is an abominable person. An infrequent amount of readers will look at Curley’s actions and have sympathy for him, but Curley has reasons for his mistakes. Nevertheless, Curley is a disastrous man due to the way he grew up being an only child, he is astoundingly short, his father is a wealthy ranch owner, and he grew up in a racist and sexist community.

The reader is positioned to view her negatively as she uses her beauty as power to seduce the workers on the farm and make her husband jealous. The men often complain about her throughout the novel, calling her names that no woman would ever appreciate. Candy tells George and Lennie his honest opinion of Curley’s wife, “You know what I think?” George did not answer. “Well, I think Curley’s married…a tart.” (Steinbeck, p.29). They believe she’s just looking to stir up trouble.
“There is no greater disability in society , than the inability to see a person as more” by Robert M. Hensel . Discrimination is a unjust treatment, both women and men have been discriminated by their differences between themselves. In Of MIce and Men many characters are discriminated for their disabilities, gender, age, and the most known the discrimination of color. Curley’s wife is discriminated for her gender. As the wife of the son’s boss, she is isolated by many other men, but is not able to make any contact with them due to her jealous husband.
