Steinbeck crafts Curley’s wife’s character to demonstrate the role of women in the 1930’s, and to prove that women will never be able to achieve the American Dream because of the sexist society present during that time period. Gender roles during the 1930’s were very prevalent. Men were free to do as they pleased while women were expected to be submissive housewives, meaning they must stay home alone and tend to the house. Curley’s wife is a perfect example of this as she was also expected to stay home without the freedom to socialize with others since she was the only female on the farm.

Once you clean up you and I will go to town.
We can deduce from this that she likes being apart from her family when she has the opportunity, and when she finishes school she would have to stay with them. We start to see how distant her relationship with her family really is when her father’s chauffeur picks her up from her boarding school.

In reading, it can be also found that Bartleby 's life and that of the woman are very impersonal, but Bartleby 's is more since the woman, at least, the woman tries to communicate with her son and her husband in order to solve it is happening to her. An obvious difference between the woman and Bartleby is when she realizes that she was wrong, “What has happened to me, I’m not myself anymore.” (Pg. 40) This is represented when she hit the child because of his antics. Her husband tried to help her in many times; he hired a nanny. This made the wife feel freer for a little bit.
Throughout her life span irrational decisions strained her path to Hollywood fame. Curley’s wife was vulnerable due to the strict guidelines set in place by her mother. These guidelines caused Curley's wife to make the sporadic decision to marry him and escape her mother's discouragement, “I always thought my ol' lady stole it. Well, I wasn't gonna stay no place where I couldn't get nowhere or make something of myself, an' where they stole your letters, I ast her if she stole it, too, an' she says no. So I married Curley.”(Curley's wife 88).
Because of her limited experience, she feels the failure of her given language to express her body needs. Therefore, Marion creates her fictional lover Frank or "F" as she calls him.

This meant she had to give up her happiness to fulfill the promise she made to her mother that she wouldn’t shame the family and she did everything in her power to keep that promise. Her daughter, Waverly Jong, did not have the same devotion to the meaning of the word “promise”. Amy Tan wrote, “A daughter can promise to come to dinner, but if she has a headache, if she has a traffic jam, if she wants to watch her favorite movie on TV, she no longer has a promise (Tan 42).” The younger generation does not apply as much devotion to the smaller things in life as their moms did because they did not grow up in the culture that the older
