Relationships are the core of everything we do in life. We love someone, so we do something for them; we value someone 's opinion, so we respect them; we dislike someone, so we avoid them. Relationships cause people to act on their emotions which impact how and why they do the things they do. Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple trying to come to a conclusion on a delicate matter. While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy.
It shows that scout believes that women have a minuscule amount of power, and that she needs to act like a boy for her to even be recognized by Jem as a member of the group. Gender equality is not fully intact, as shown explicitly throughout the novel. Scout is not the only woman who feels the impact of sexism in the novel. Especially in that time, women were not treated as equals in many circumstances. Women are also set a standard to be ladies, doing things such as wearing dresses and not playing outside like males are allowed to.
In the novel In the Time of the Butterflies, Julia Alvarez uses Minerva and Dede to discuss gender roles because both the characters of Minerva and Dede respond to gender roles in completely different ways. To begin, once the challenges of Trujillo become more intense, Dede finds herself unable to handle it, “She shuts her eyes tight and wished blindly that everything would turn out all right” (pg. 78). This statement is important because it illustrates the gender roles women should take on throughout the novel. Specifically, this quotation shows how Dede hopes for her husband find a solution to the issue at hand, as she closes her eyes instead of facing the problem.

In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles). Although Emilia does not ever say these powerful words out loud, she is still willing to not follow her husbands commands despite his strong character. Emilia proves again that she has powerful thoughts when she stated that,”Let husbands know, Their wives have sense like them; they see and smell, And have their palates both for sweet and sour As husbands have’ (Othello IV.3.92-5) Emilia contends that women are physically the same to men,they both get distraught and have issues that trouble each other, they should treat each other similarly. Women can still analyze literature about the inequality and rights for women through many of the injustices that are modern today.
If humans carelessly continue to find love with people that they barely know, it could actually end up in a terrible relationship. Kristen Roupenian, author of the short story “Cat Person” shows this statement to prove itself true using various literary elements. The story she published in the New Yorker, shows the relationship that exists between a twenty-year-old woman named Margot and a thirty-four-years-old man known as Robert. A relationship always needs to contain a lot of trust and some communication between each other. She proves it by showing the character’s thoughts, by telling the story using the third person limited ()and also by making it appealing to our senses.
“She’ll be a fool – that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool” (Fitzgerald 17). In the novel, The Great Gatsby, this is what Daisy hopes for her daughter. Unfortunately, being a woman with a voice and a sense of freedom is reprimanded more than a beautiful little fool. Instead of blaming the female characters for their emptiness or recklessness, there is more to be said about why they act this way and how this is viewed in the perspective of men in the novel. The actions of Daisy, Jordon and Myrtle are not necessarily spiteful until it hurts or belittles the male characters.
In the short story, “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, the author, Flannery O 'Connor, demonstrates how a short story can contain many aspects of feminism without one even noticing. Looking at the short story through a feminist point of view, one can quickly gather that O’Connor uses the old school gender roles from the very beginning of the short story. As reading the title, it automatically suggests the male characters in this short story are untrustworthy, not prevalent, and dangerous. With that being said, the female characters in this story are viewed in the eyes of how a woman should act. With the title stating that a good man is hard to find, it reinforces the idea that women need a man in their lives.
For Alan had views and Phoebe was quenched in the flood of his views” (Woolf, ROO 115-16). These images of nature help to visualise the dominance men have had over women and explain why it was so difficult for women to find enough ‘nourishment’ to develop. Hence, the imagery appeals to both our pathos and logos. Woolf’s use of the pronoun “one” in A Room of One’s Own could therefore be seen as a strategy to cultivate a common ground where she can reach both genders and allow women and men to grow, since “one” is neutral with no phallocentric associations and since it is probably easier for a man to identify with this unbiased pronoun instead of the female “I” of a woman
