Even though it is a considered a satirical look at women, “Epistle 2. To a Lady” uses satire to acknowledge his compassion for the current day issues of women. He contrasts men and women in this poem, “In men, we various ruling passions find; In women, two almost divide the kind;” making fun of the current roles men and women play. He writes of women’s desire to have what men have yet he contradicts his writing, “Experience, this; by man’s oppression cursed, they seek the second not to lose the first……Yet mark the fate of a whole sex of queens! Power all their end, but beauty all the means.” He writes that they want the same rights and opportunities afforded men, but still use their “womanly” virtues to get what they want.
The author establishes this issue well in the cases of Sophie Wender, Rosalind Morton, and Aunt Harriet. These individuals are undoubtedly the most developed emotionally, as well as the most assertive and genuine representations of present day women, shown throughout the novel.. Nevertheless their way of acting is considered “sinful” because they stray from the gendered norms, this is exceedingly present in Aunt Harriet. She is desperate to keep her child even though the baby is considered a deviation. Her attempts at tricking the inspector falls short as her own sister and her husband deny her pursuit and disdain her.
The speakers in the two poems; “To Coy His Mistress” and “My Last Duchess”, were flawed due to the ignorance of their view of women; given that all they believe is that women are on earth to please every man’s need, which is mainly sex. The similarities, and differences, between the two speakers of the two poems, show the real intentions of the speakers have towards the women in the two poems. The speakers in the poem had one belief about women, they are only meant to make men happy and feel good. The imagery used in “To Coy His Mistress” helps create a better mental picture of what the speaker wanted from the woman.

Yunior replaces longing with indifference, family with solitude, feelings with masculinity. While he himself does not recognize these exchanges, Yunior alludes to them throughout his story of wooing girls; what he really desires is to not desire. Contentment, his end goal, can only be reached in his mind by proving himself to the world as the man he aspires to be, not the child who did not want to go visit his aunt with his family. In his story, How to date a brown girl (black girl, white girl, or halfie), Junot Diaz, the author, paints the strange world that some male Dominican teens grow up in. His subtle and overt mentions of race, masculinity, and identity constantly tangle themselves throughout the whole piece.

These presumptions of women had been very much portrayed in short story , The Chaser by John Collier, in which a boy name Alan Austen seeks for a love potion from an old man, for a girl he likes name Diana. The short story really showed the judgement of men’s egotistical minds and also their lust in which clearly stated the true colors of what men really think of women. This establishes the stereotypical image of a woman becoming a man’s puppet, and having no voice in what occurs, but to only be there for an egotistical lust of love in a submissive form to fulfill a man 's desire. When looking into the short story, it is evidently seen that Alan says he loves Diana, but she doesn 't even bother to pay attention to him. So rather than try to capture Diana’s attention he undoubtedly goes into controlling her entire self will for his own selfish reasons.
A professor that is a woman is indeed professional about her job so students need to understand that being a professor is the only thing they are to them.

In conclusion, the story the chaser shows feminist criticism because Mr. Austen felt like he needs to get a love potion for Diana. In this case, Diana has the full control in the relationship.
For example, Holden thinks of a relationship as being something sacred that cannot be casually thrown around. We see this in his attitudes towards the people at the Edmont Hotel deeming them to be degenerates due to what he views as casual behavior. Also, Holden has a certain naivety towards women as tends to idealize them as evidenced by Jane. Stradlater is the antithesis, in using common slang the man is a player, as Holden describes on pg. 27, he takes a mild view towards sex and is very charismatic towards
