Soon’s he got back to Hollywood he was gonna write to me about it.’ She looked closely at Lennie to see whether she was impressing him. ‘I never got that letter’” (Steinbeck 88).

The assumptions/stereotypes made about women were as if women were maids, powerless, and uneducated people. The nature of women has been judged constantly over the years. Women’s decision such as; the usage of birth control, the decision of abortion, and even women’s right to go to school or work has been judged. During the years of 1890-1925, the men thought of themselves as superior. Men also seen women as inferior to them, physically.

Yesterday morning Mumtaz found her hanging from the rafters” (McCormick 152). The little girl could not take the psychological pressure that was brought upon her, and so she gave her own life to avoid it. This shows that the sex trafficking industry can mentally break people, and the ones who get out alive from the brothels are usually traumatized for the rest of their lives. After finally being freed, “Some girls who are trafficked choose to remain prostitutes for life because their home villages will not accept them” (Ruffins). This is also shown in the book Sold, with Monica not being accepted back to her village after returning.

Charlie did go to dance and he did what Sam said. After that everything was changed they have date again, hang out, watching movie, talk every day and one day Mary Elizabeth intended to have sex with Charlie in her house but it didn’t last. Charlie’s feeling was unhappy because he actually didn’t like Mary Elizabeth. He lied to her. This part is become interesting for me because Charlie was a kind of shy person and this is his first date ever and a girl who date him is something different for the other girls so I think it is more challenged to Charlie.
In the book Of Mice and Men, the character of Curley's wife best captures the isolation felt by so many characters because she is the only woman on the ranch and her husband has forbidden everyone from talking to her, she really is the loneliest person on the ranch. First Steinbeck describes her as being pretty and flirtatious and emphasizes that she combats her loneliness by flirting with the ranch workers. “Her words tumbled out in a passion of communication, as though she hurried before her listener could be taken away” (88). In this line the word “tumbled” shows how quickly the words fall out of her mouth and how she doesn’t think twice before she talks. The phrase “passion of communication” shows the love she feels towards talking with
In Of Mice and Men the characters along with the readers see Curley's wife craving sexual attention. The ranch hands did not interact with Curley's wife unless she was flaunting herself at them. She used her looks along with excuses to start a conversation with the ranch hands knowing that was the only way they would interact with her. One day she asked Slim if he knew where Curley was and he responded with, “Well you ain't tryin very hard. I seen him goin’ in your house.” (Slim 32) Slim assumed she was looking for unwarranted attention from him.
She is called names, described vulgarly, and is blamed for situations. She is a symbol of women during those times. The woman in the novel, Of Mice and Men, is Curley’s wife. She is married to a man of short stature who likes to fight taller men. Curley's wife since the beginning of the book is called a tart and is said to “have the eye” and that she gives the eye to the workers even though she got married a couple of weeks ago, according to the old swamper (Steinbeck 28).
It is said from the beginning to stay away from her because only bad circumstances will come out of it. Curley’s wife was talking to Lennie how her life could have been a lot better; “I tell ya I could of went with shows” (Steinbeck 78). Not much before she married Lennie, Curley’s wife could have been an actress and lived a very rich and successful life. There was a guy in the shows that told Curley’s wife that she is an amazing actress and could be in the shows. She never gets a letter from the guy in the shows so she ends up marrying Curley; “I couldn’t get nowhere or make nothin of myself… so I married Curley” (Steinbeck 88).
In the article it says that women entered jobs like engineering, other professions, and manufacturing jobs that many people believed that those jobs were too dangerous for women and women were too weak. In their jobs, women made airplanes, warships, munitions, and tanks working in technical and scientific fields. Also, after the war, women were still employed as secretaries, waitresses, or in other clerical jobs. This was often called the “pink collar” force.

Curley 's wife is promiscuous. She’s clingy, racist, and she annoys everyone on the ranch. At least that’s the way John Steinbeck portrayed her in his book Of Mice and Men. When a motion picture based on the book under the same name was produced, the director Gary Sinise decided to transform the way people felt about Curley 's wife. He presented her as more sympathetic and romantic, and in turn far more likeable.
