Men will use words to discredit a women’s intelligence and make her sound that her own thought was not her own but came from someone else. Men will use something along the lines of “oh you are just saying that because, your (strong male figure) told you to think like that.” This silences anything else that woman may have had to say about the topic because now, she has to prove that that thought was not only her own but, she actually used her brain to form it. Stanley uses the example from Catherine MacKinnon article about how pornography silences women. Women who want to say and actually mean no are seen as saying yes to men. It has brainwashed men into thinking no means yes and yes means no.
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.
While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy. The struggles presented between these two characters bring to light issues in human relationships that weigh into everyday life. Hemingway’s short story reveals to readers how relationships affect communication, decision
Which is harder- keeping a relationship going or getting out of a relationship? While “Tips for Women: How to Have a Relationship with a Guy” by Dave Barry gives advice to women about the key to a successful relationship, “It’s So Hard” by Wanda Sykes discusses the struggle of getting out of a relationship. Barry and Sykes both use exaggerated truths and metaphors to create a laughable atmosphere for their readers. However, “Tips for Women” is funnier because Barry uses a man’s ignorance to justify the hardships of a relationship; on the other hand, “It’s So Hard” portrays one’s significant other as insensitive and uses crude humor, which makes the passage less comical. In the first section of “Tips for Women,” Barry discusses the communication
Creon’s hubris as a men affects how he thinks about women, he considered women as secondary creature. Yet, not until his arrogant led to great mistakes did he realized that men and women had the same position—they should be
Once she does so, however, she decides to remain incognito. This decision is important in analysing her character, as well as the role of gender in society. Women and men during this time period had set roles in society, which were expected to be followed. Rosalind’s character is significant in that she embodies this view, as she is able to assume the position of a man, and “perform” it convincingly. For most of the play, Rosalind poses as a young man, Ganymede, in order to avoid the limitations of being a woman, as well as to “woo”(3.3.
Women’s credibility is often a subject of doubt, due to men continuously trying to be authoritative over women, as in the case of Rebeca Solnit in “Men Explain Things to Me.” The writer is confronted by a man who is explaining a book that she previously wrote; however, he is unaware of Solnit’s expertise on the subject. When she attempts to express her views, opinions, and facts he completely ignores her. Women should put a stop to a man if he is not knowledgeable of a certain topic and instead tell him that he is incorrect. This way, women will not feel overpowered by a man and will prevent low self-esteem. For instance, she claims that women must be “audible and credible” in order to have “true” empowerment and survive the argument of a man
Salinger 's, The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield grows up from the immature person he was to a respectable man. Throughout the book, Holden begins to evolve and understand the prospect of life of realizing and mending mistakes made. Holden truly only has feelings for Jane Gallagher, making him respect her privacy about sex. As he talks to Luce, he gets defensive about him using women and "talk about her that way" when she "[lets] you get sexy" with her. Because Holden thinks highly of Jane, it makes her special to him (Salinger 160).
We can also see that, as the interview moves on, Lady Bracknell starts to think that Jack is a joke and that she can't be bothered with him: the more she learns about him, the more she becomes repulsed. She often replies with exclamative sentences, showing us that she is totally shocked with the answers that she gets from Jack: “A country house!” and “Found!” or “Me, sir!”. She also quickly dismisses him: “I don't know her.” or “The unfashionable side.”. So in conclusion, Bracknell's behavior is far different from Jack's. Bracknell is rather relaxed and calm (although she gets quite agitated at the end) while Jack is full of anxiety and stress.
For example, the nurse states to Juliet “No less? Nay, bigger! Woman grow by men “ (I.iii.96). This quote indicates how men only care about appearance and not what a woman has to show affection for the men. This quote is important to keep thought of because some men can be very open minded and pleasing, but men only care about getting woman pregnant and leaving them afterwards.
