The society the book is written in see women as property even though they have an important role in this book.

She challenges the establishment because she takes walks and is more interested in nature and being outside than she is in technology. This isn 't frowned upon in their society but, the government does not like it because she is being different than the rest and the society is a utopia. “I sometime think drivers don 't know what grass is, or flowers because they never see them slowly…” (Bradbury 9).

This is challenging the establishment because everyone else is interested in technology while she is being different and is going for walks and looking at flowers.
The setting in “The Horse Dealer’s Daughter” continues to convey the theme that women have been oppressed by society. Mabel faces oppression in the small english town where the story takes place. She explains that being a women does not matter as much when a family has money, but when they are poor she has to walk down the streets with her eyes low and avoid eye contact as she buys the cheapest item in every store (Lawrence 458). This shows that when a woman is seen as being represented by someone with power, in this case it is her father, then they are given a little respect. However, when a women is looked at just as herself and not as a rich man’s daughter she is not seen a colleague to men but as an object that is to be pitied.
It is assumed that they are both faithful. Cristina is typically feminine in the way she dresses and presents herself, which is typical to the stereotypes of a female identity. The career stereotypes are slightly supported when we see that Frida is mostly supportive of Diego’s work by travelling with him for his jobs, but does not strive to create a career with her artwork.

Growing up is a hard time, and for the three most important characters in the short stories, “Two Kinds,” “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant,” and “Fish Cheeks” it certainly is no different. It makes them feel unacknowledged when all they want is just independence and acceptance of the ones that they find to be important to them. Acceptance is something every person wants to gain from everyone, it just is not something focused on commonly. For Jing-Mei in the story “Two Kinds” acceptance is not something often found in their family. Jing-Mei has this mother who lost her husband and twins back in China and is now trying very hard to get a fresh and better start on her new life with her child.
