Based on the article written by Judy Brady tittle , ‘ I want a wife’, I would conclude that the story is about the inequality in the roles of being a wife or woman. The story is unique where the demands of having a perfect wife supposedly came from man , contrastively author wrote the demands came from herself which also a wife, mother and woman. Judy Brady focused at some elements to develop arguments in her writing. Those elements are from the heart, from character, from values and facts. The arguments from the heart started to take point when she started to think about having a wife too.

It quickly leads to the warrant that women want help cleaning when the wife looks thrilled and turned on by her husband helping her clean. At the end of the commercial, the wife rushes into her husband’s arms, shoving him onto the couch, proving the claim that “you gotta love a man who cleans
An additional proof for this is the fact that Tristram as the implied author provides a sort of introduction to dealing with the asterisks by presenting several exemplary inserts and their results (cf. 81; vol.

Women must have a certain hairstyle, long hair, and wear skirts while men must have short hair and wear pants. In most modern cultures, women are still expected to play the family role of the stay at home mother who cleans and cares for the children while the men are out
In “The Amazing History of Elang Uling,” Ela’s mother defends Ela through preservation. After a day of overwork and starvation, she provides a haven for Ela, preparing sumptuous meals and finishing her chores for her overnight. She also transforms, for example, a blue dress into a pink shawl to keep Ela sane.

Draft: WA Intro: Henrik Ibsen’s 1890 play ‘Hedda Gabler’ is a tragic tale of a youthful woman’s struggle in finding her place in life. In his play Ibsen uses stage direction and dialogue to express tension with Hedda and Tesman’s marriage. Hedda is trapped in a life of loveless marriage, absolute boredom and a complete absence of friends. Through Ibsen’s dialogue and stage directions the audience is invited to observe the apathetic connection between Hedda and Tasman. Among the difficulties nullifying their relationship, social tension arises as Hedda idolises an upper-class, luxurious life style, but working-class Tasman can’t afford the regime is wife desires.
Hassen views his wife Salima as ‘flaccid' (Essop  1998: 71) with many inadequacies' (Essop  1998: 67) and has an overly negative view of his wife; however the narrator shows that Salima is kind and caring as she helps Catherine and visits Karim (Medalie 1998: xxix). Hassen's patriarchal view of society exposes gender inequality as a social inequality, also shown in ‘Devil at a Dead End'. Lastly, the climatic event of the ‘The Hajji' can be contrasted with that of ‘Devil at a Dead End'. When Karim dies without Hassen having visited him he feels conflicted emotions but ultimately wishes that he could have shown his brother ‘a final act of love' (Essop  1998: 81). While Hassen finds no closure in his brother's death and regrets his actions showing that he is not as powerful as he thinks he, in contrast, the girl on the train found power in a hopeless situation to overcome a horrid fate - showing that she held more power than she thought she was capable of.
