In the articles “A Mother’s Day Kiss-Off” and “The Myth Of Co-Parenting” they express their issues with husbands. Even though they both express their troubles, Bennetts issue is that she belives husbands under appreciate their wives, while Edelman feels as if her husband is not there enough to appreciate her. Both authors feel as they do not receive enough appreciation and think that they should get more. Bennetts states “We accommodate our husbands’ careers at the expense of our own interests…”(43). What she is saying is that women feel as if they have to give up things they're interested in to make their husbands happy, making them feel not as important.
Women were expected to be housewives, who stayed home and did domestic chores and fulfilled the pleasure of their husbands. Men were able to go around and use women whenever they please; however, if a women were to do this, society would look frown upon them and shame them for their actions. This double-standard caused many women to be heartbroken and rejected by their husbands and significant other cheating on them. Even if a women were unhappy, getting a divorce would be most likely frowned upon because it was common for men to cheat, so women would have to deal with it. Therefore women often chased after the man of their dreams, only to be tricked by his perfect appearance.
The Fight for Dominance In today’s society, gender norms convince men that unless they are able to control women, they are weak. Considered the inferior gender, women must find new ways to prove their own strength, whether it be through manipulation or their sexuality. The battle between the two continues as men strive to remain dominant, often by immoral means, and women attempt to gain the upper hand. In the screenplay, “A Streetcar Named Desire” by Tennessee Williams, the sexual tension and struggle for dominion between Blanche and Stanley is evident, and as the play continues, Blanche's promiscuity and Stanley's predatory nature foreshadow an inevitable confrontation. As soon as Blanche steps into the Kowalski household and meets Stanley, it is evident that her appearance is a threat to his superiority.
“When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch” said Betty Davis. Contemporary society has many different gender stereotypes. All those stereotypes make a hart time for young boys and girls in America today. Gander stereotypes could limit women’s and men’s capacity to develop their personal abilities.
"The brothers were brought up to be men. The girls had been reared to get married" (Márquez 31). In this culture, a woman's only purpose is to marry and have children. She is taught the basic skills required to take care of a house and is judged on beauty, while the men are able to live their lives freely, without judgement. These standards take every ounce of power from the women and hand it to the men, preventing women from overcoming these standards.
1. In chapter 8, Tannen mentions the communication differences between men and women that there are many communication styles of them, which is totally different between men and women even though if they grow up in the same place. They have such different outlooks on the world and a different idea of how to go about talking things out. Women often feel that their partner should be able to know what the woman wants without her saying, and men feel that the woman should be able to say exactly what it is they want, as women always look at the metamessages of conversation, but men just look at the messages. Additionally, during talking, women often feel that since men are more quitethe common stereotypes of American men when their partner is speaking whether or not he is hearing everything she is saying, it means that they are not listening, and men feel that since women make listening noises, women are impatient and not genuinely interested in what they are saying.
Due to Katherina’s harsh tongue, which previously is the reason for being called a “shrew”, the phrase condemning women who think outwardly “muddy,ill-seeming, thick, bereft of beauty” would have each word being emphasized strongly portraying her feisty attitude and intense feelings towards her personal ideals and the people who believe the opposite. Further clarifying the choice for shorter outburst like ways to say these negative attributes she is associating with women who think outwards of her ideas. 3.The scene portrays a different side to Katherina not seen throughout the entire play. Initially Katherina is seen to look down upon men, hence the reason for her refusal to marry. Not only has
One of his most notable theories was the Oedipus theory, where he believed that a child wanted to have a strong relationship with the parent of the opposite sex, so they started to gain a hatred towards their parent of the opposite sex. This theory was mostly used towards son’s and their attraction towards their mother. Over time, they would learn to hate their fathers, because they believed that the father would steal the mothers affection towards their son. Females were often left out of the question with this theory, so the Electra theory developed. The Electra theory is the psychosexual theory, where girls are in competition with their mothers for possession of their fathers.
I could have ploughed and planted, gathered into barns, and no man could head me.” The main focus of Brady’s “I Want a Wife” is how men treat women as inferior. The speaker, who fulfills the traditional roles of a man in a heterosexual marriage, describes the wife they want as wholly subservient to the speaker in every aspect of her marriage. The speaker of this essay expects the wife to fulfill all domestic duties without question or complaint, and attend to her husband’s every want over her own
This social climate and the standards that exist within influence these storytellers, making their perspectives biased. A problem arises when these stories that include women are being told from a male perspective, especially during this time period, when the forced silence and compliance of women let men assume and write what they wanted to about women. This is shown in the warped perceptions that men, like the Reeve, had of women. Instead of being seen as actual humans, women are made to seem like sexual objects, evident in how the Reeve describes Malyne as one would describe cattle, how Nicholas approaches Alison, and how Alan and John treat the women in the Reeve’s Tale. From the viewpoint of these characters, love is impractical when their final goal is to sleep with the women that they see as objects for their pleasure.

The men in his life have shown a high level of masculinity and have furthermore abused Yunior. He reflects upon this when he mentions his father, “he would pull our ears and smack us, and then we would have to kneel in the corner for a few hours.” (p.134) In many instances one would say that Yunior sees women as an object, only for his uses and desires.
