Feminism- the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes, the novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” was aimed to be a feminist novel, however it wasn’t a feminist novel because of how Janie depended on her husband, and because of how Janie chose her husband 's. Due to those factors the novel turned out to be a regular novel instead of a feminist novel. Janie was so dependent on her husband’s that she couldn’t really take care of herself. For example in the book nanny forced her to marry Logan so she can have protection and after she left with Joe she couldn’t leave him because she didn’t have money or a place to stay. If it was a feminist novel the author Zora Neale Hurston would’ve had Janie make some money so she
A Marriage Without Love Marriage has lost its value. The Red Tent proves this by not only showing that marriage is just for women to have babies, but marriage is no longer sacred between people who love each other. Zilpah didn’t want to marry Jacob, but because her sisters married him she felt obligated to, leaving Zilpah and Jacobs marriage in shambles. Even when Jacob tried to show Zilpah extra attention, and he tried to love her, it still didn’t make her love him, because she didn’t love him in the first place, after she had her baby she just left it at that, and didn’t show Jacob any time of day. Every day in society are millions of people getting married for all the wrong reasons, whether it’s for money, citizenship, babies or lust.
In the early 1800’s, Women were denied some of the essential rights that men had. For instance, women could not own land or have the right to vote. In fact, women could even be fired from the job they currently had if they were pregnant. But just imagine this, if a woman wanted to establish a credit card, she needs her husband to authenticate that for her. And to top it off, women were even denied to go to college because of their gender, even if they have spectacular grades (Katie).
That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. Daisy and Tom’s love wasn’t real love because if it was he would have been there for his daughters birth instead of God knows with whom. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays women as hopeless and better off being stupid so they wouldn’t process and realize that their husband didn’t really love them and that love is just a unrealistic dream. Further, a modern writer Zora Neale Hurston wrote in her short story about a married couple in a small community. Where the wife named Lena has an open affair in front of the town and her husband.
The common thought was there was something wrong with them if women were not married by the time limit. Women were never thought of becoming lawyers or doctors because of the restrictions of the functions they had to do, based on their gender. They were just considered property belonging to their spouse. In Kate Chopin’s works such as The Awakening, she contradicted the roles and stereotypes of women and
Society during that time, believed that women weren’t intelligent enough to take on such roles. Women in the Merchant of Venice go against their gender roles. Men did not think that women could ever be as smart as they were, and did not listen or take advice from women that is why Portia had to dress up as a man just to get the men to listen to her and Antonio was saved just because of her intelligence. Here is revealed the idea of love that women can do everything to see their husbands happy. Jessica also goes against the gender role of women, because she is making her own decision about her life.
The big day has arrived, it 's the last chance. If the family could accept one outsider then they could accept Tory they just could not see his potential.

“Shymia often worked 18 hours a day. Many nights, while the family slept, she stayed up ironing their outfits for the next day.” I don’t believe a 12 year old little girl she be forced into cruel labor. Douglass and Shymia’s stories are similar in a lot of ways. However she had a family background and Douglass had barely any contact with his. “She lived with her parents and 10 brothers and sisters sharing a small one-bathroom home with three other families.” Although she didn’t have the best living conditions; she often felt loved.
In this story “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston I think this story is not a feminist novel. The females/ Women doesn 't have a say so of what they do.The men don 't treat the women with respect but see them as a object to get. Joe does not treat janie right. Some people who read this novel feel like it 's a feminist novel but it 's not because the females don 't do anything back or have a word back to the men because they go off the man. Janie’s grandmother didn 't play when it came to Janie she stayed ahead of her marriage, love and security.
My family was not rich, but as my mother would often say, we were “one paycheck away from being poor.” My sisters and I never went to bed hungry, but I can remember on numerous nights we had to be creative with making dinner to feed our four family household. My mother often worked two and three jobs just to try and make ends meet. Women like my mother were expected to raise families entirely on their own financial resources, however inadequate. I was raised watching my mother break her back to provide for our family. Although, my home point of view was not one that ended in poverty, however, it became one of the greatest threats my family feared on a day to day
