She is perceived as Curley’s property so she is not to be looked at or spoken to.

For instance, Nicolae Ceauşescu was manipulated by his wife. We should not judge a book after its cover or after reading a paragraph. There are criminals and rapists who should be punished for their deeds, but not all men are that way. Moreover, this is a “big, fat” contradiction and this is why most women disagree with the idea that men are not so “worthy” as women. It goes against everything they have done until now because “feminism” means “equality of the sexes”.

Women now can live a life without having to rely on someone else or the society for fulfillment. Co –dependence is in the past. One can say that Rosie the Riveter led this movement, but giving credit to a female cartoon is over rated. The working women during that war did the hard-work. Dropping out of school to work, creating and assembling parts all just to support the war.
The author thinks women can hardly wear anything without a fear of being judged. She provides few pieces of evidence on how women usually are targeted and not men in this society in respect to interpretation. She argues on how different forms have Mr. as a suffix which shows nothing, but in the case of women there is Mrs. and also Miss which reflects the marital status of women.
