This play, A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen, focuses on women, especially in marriage and motherhood. Torvald is a character, who describes inequality between men and women and the women’s role in the society in that era. He believes that it is an important and the only duty of a woman to be a good wife and mother. As an individual, a woman, could not conduct or run a business of her own, she needs to ask her father or husband and they were only considered to be father’s or husband’s property. Women were not allowed to vote and divorce if they were allowed they would carry a heavy social shame and it was only available when both partners agreed.
No one should ever have to go through the pain of getting used over and over again just for their own survival which is what Maisha from Uwem Akpan 's book “ Say You 're One Of them” had to do because her family is very poverty stricken and they heavily depend on her for the source of income.

Bangladesh is not having highly literacy rate and some prejudices and superstitions still work on rural people, less-educated and poor family.

Her father and mother are traditional in their outlooks and in their portrayal of farmhouse life.

The birth of a female was seen as a misfortune and was believed to bring bad luck into the family. Daughters were valued almost nothing compared to sons and were said to just be a burden amongst the family. Therefore when the first girl was born into the family, O-lan strangles her and says that “it is only this time-not worth mentioning” (Buck, 65).

Reports about the gnawing problem of income inequality among single mother households usually list the usual suspects: their lack of education, dysfunctional family issues, and lack of transportation to get to work.

According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), “Lack of meaningful alternatives, such as affordable schools… is another major factor driving children to harmful labor… many communities, particularly rural areas where 60-70% of child labor is prevalent, do not possess adequate school facilities. Even when schools are sometimes available, they are too far away, difficult to reach, unaffordable, or the quality of education is so poor that parents wonder if going to school is really worth it” (“Child Labor - Causes”). Due to a lack of a decent alternative, children join the labor force instead. They work because they have nothing else to do. Furthermore, when comparing Maplecroft’s child labor index and the UN’s education index, we see that the five countries with the most serious child labor problems (Bangladesh, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, and India) also rank low on the education index with 165, 178, 167, 174, and 147 out of 181, respectively (“Climate”; “Education”).
