Money, power, and success have blinded people into thinking they are in love and it has led to these women being oppressed. Tom and Gatsby in this book are what is called the patriarchy. According to Revise Sociology, the patriarchy is “The systematic domination of women by men in some or all of society’s spheres and institutions.” In Tom and Daisy’s marriage; they are both having an affair, Tom wasn’t at his child’s birth, and he oppresses Daisy physically, maybe by accident, and socially, by not allowing her to go wherever she wants to go. In Tom and Myrtle’s affair; they are both married, yet they have this affair, she is dependent on him because he oppresses her economically and psychologically, and he also oppresses her physically when he broke her nose. In Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship; she is having an affair with him and he psychologically oppressed her with his money and wealth only to get the idea he has of her as his “Golden Girl.” Fitzgerald’s argument is, when love is not the main reason for a relationship it will lead into oppression of women.

As, Chaman Nahal Writers about feminism in India: “Both the awareness of woman’s position in society as one of disadvantage or in generally compared with that of man and also a desire to remove those is advantages.” (16) What women write is all about female subjectivity and with feminine perception. They depict their own identity in their novels. However this is the reason why their works are undervalued as they belong to patriarchal world where male experiences are always superior to female assumptions. Indian society gave much priority to men centric works. Male writers always dealt with heavy themes and works of women were not being appreciated.
