To begin, the lack of financial stability in the Walls family has always been problematic, however as the mother of her children, Rose Mary never contributed much to the family income due to her stubbornness and free-spirited nature. A prime example of Rose Mary not providing for her family is a constant lack of food in the house. The children’s hunger is apparent when Jeannette says, “We did eat less. Once we lost our credit at the commissary, we quickly ran out of food. Sometimes Dad’s odd jobs would come through, or he’d win some money gambling, and we’d eat for a few days.
She has a tendency to resent herself too as she married Curley. She despises Curley and blames herself for marrying him and constraining herself to their house and the farm. Curley treats her like an object and she gets to a point where she is absolutely fed up with it but she still has no chance but to stay on the farm, her personal hell. She fails to form relationships with anyone and that eventually causes her death.
As such, they avoid her, as if they fear her views will spread like a disease.

There are also many places where people have no rights because they have a dictator instead of a democracy. A dictator controls everyone and does not allow people to vote for their leader and usually gives the position to someone in their family when they die. It is usually in countries with dictators where women don’t have equal rights and cannot work or go to school. Many people believe that we should be trying to make things better so that we have a fair and equal society.
Her family never had a lot of money and she often had to fend for herself and take care of her siblings. Her mother never worked and her father never held a steady job and was an alcoholic. Jeannette worked in her childhood, began cooking her own meals at the age of three, and did everything that she could to leave the dying town she was in to search for a better life in New York.

She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains.” (Guy de Maupassant 2) “She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing. And these were the only things she loved;” (Guy de Maupassant 2) The author included this to let the readers know what kind of “Poverty” Matilde was living in. Mathilde doesn't seem to love her husband as much.
She was afraid of them, of course. Every woman in South Africa is brought up to be. In her childhood she had been forbidden to walk out alone, and when she had asked why, she has been told in the furtive, lowered, but matter-of-fact voice she associated with her mother, that they were nasty and might do horrible things to her.
