'". Instead of letting the children finally stay in the house, the step mother is still stubborn to throw them away and not acting like a mother should have acted. Even the father tries to change her mind, " 'It would be better for you to share the last mouthful with your children. '". But, it is no use, she does not listen to what he wants.
She goes on to explain that she does not appreciate the way the men on the ranch treat her with disrespect. The fact that she can stand up for herself, even though she’s all alone, reveals just how strong and confident of a person Curley’s wife truly is. If she had continued bottling up all of her emotions, she would have never had the chance to express her true emotions. This why why “‘I get lonely’” is the most important phrase used in chapters five and six of the novella Of Mice and
In Excerpts from the Awakening, Kate Chopin conveys that women deserve the same freedoms as men, so when Edna sets out to find her independence, much like Orleanna, who is tired of being treated poorly by her no good husband, it creates a connection between the stories. Orleanna appears to be a good mother who keeps her kids in check, and in line, for the most part. Her children aren’t too thrilled about being stuck in the Congo on their trip, but they all have to do what their father says. Orleanna obeys her husband Nathan during the beginning of the book because she is too afraid to step out of line because she knows how Nathan gets when he
Seeing that Curly acts as her owner makes it obvious that he feels like the superior sex overall. In other words, Ballman’s article and Steinbeck’s show of Curly’s marriage allows for a spotlight on the sexism that happens and how it affects them differently. This “rule” in society that women are inferior boasts men’s egos and shuts down women’s self value or makes them fight for
She uses her power against them to hide the fact that she is lonely and insecure. Secondly, Curley's wife sees herself as a tease to the other men although they want nothing to do with her. She uses her pretty face of makeup, nice body, and bouncy hair to show off to them. When she enters the barnhouse, Lennie is fascinated by her. Lennie smiled admiringly "Gosh, she was so purty".
She denies to the townspeople that her father is dead. She doesn’t want to accept the death of the things she loves. Miss Emily will do anything to hold onto her love ones. The death of Homer Baron serves as a perfect example of that statement. The second thing the gray strand of hair represents is wisdom and respect.
When talking to Oswald she says, “When he returns from hunting, I will not speak with him. Say I am sick.” She was only ignoring her father because she felt he “…wronged her.” (Act 1 Scene III) Goneril and Regan are both married and in turn receive their father’s good graces.

When Janie first complains of her marriage to Logan, Nanny says, “Heah you got uh prop tuh lean on all yo’ bawn days, and big protection, and everybody got tuh tip dey hat tuh you and call you Mis’ Killics,” (23). Nanny tries to convince Janie that she should be satisfied with her status of having been able to marry a respectful man. However, Janie feels that love is necessary for her marriage, and that she will be extremely unhappy if she cannot love. For Janie, the status does not matter for any relationship; rich or poor, as it is pointless without love for one another. Her firm determination to find love leads her to marry Joe, who claims he will never make her work or suffer hardship.
“Esperanza 's refusal to adhere to social expectations of female behavior goes far beyond the mere action itself, as it is a symbolic refusal to 'grow up tame,’ to accept a prescribed female destiny” (Eysturoy). Since “Mexicans don’t like their women strong,” (10) Esperanza wants to be a self-reliant woman and defy societal convention after seeing the women in her neighborhood poorly treated by their husbands. Esperanza will focus on herself rather than wait for “someone to change her life” (26) because she does not want to join the group of women on Mango Street who
Curley’s wife begins to regret living on the ranch with Curley. She starts to regret living there because of the way they treat her. And also because she could be doing better in her life instead of sitting around being bored and only being able to associate with Curley. Curley’s wife states “ I tell you I aint used to livin’ like this, I coulda made somethin’ of myself.” (Steinbeck 88).
One obstacle is gender equality, the ranch is a “male-dominant” society where women are seen as untrustworthy. The fact that Curly’s wife is the bosses wife is the true cause of her alienation. However, the simple fact that she is a female separates her from interactions with others as seen when the men refer to her as having “the eye” (28). Here the men refer to everything they think women are – a distraction and temptation for men, instead of actual human beings. Candy is also oppressed in a social inequality as he is afraid that when he is too old to work, he will be thrown out of the “ash heap”, a victim of a society that discriminates against the disabled and has no value for age or experience.
