about midway through the essay, Brady transcends to using logos as a method to additional innominate her argument. The author is improbably thorough and precise in providing several samples of even why herself, would desire a wife. Brady states, “I want a wife who will take care of my physical needs. i want a wife who can keep my house clean. A wife who will pick up after my children, a wife who will pick up after me”(Brady, P3).
In her article “I Want a Wife,” Judy Brady states she wants a wife, or rather she wants someone who performs the less desirable duties of a wife while she returns to school to become financially self-sufficient, and she elevates to the more superior role as the husband. In great detail, Brady points out that the wife is the primary caregiver of the children, single-handedly cares for the family’s personal needs, manages the household, as well as, does the brunt of the domestic chores; all the while, the husband remains non-existent. Moreover, she begrudgingly endures her spouse’s selfish emotional, social, and sexual needs, all the while knowing she can be disposed of or replaced without a second thought. Therefore, Brady feels it is better to have a wife than to be a wife. In his article “Not All Men Are Sly Foxes,” Armin A.
In this line “I want a wife who will take care of my physical needs. I want a wife who will pick up after me.

The main message of Document J is that the woman speaking, Molly Wallace, was given difficulties due to her sex. Molly was waiting for the day when she, and other females, could be treated with high regard just as the men were. Women were forced to become temporary “head of the house” figures when their spouses went to serve for our country. When this happened, women were to take care of any farming,
Not ”To his conveyance I assign my wife Desdemona, as Othello’s wife, is treated as his possession” (Scene3 Page11). Here he implies that she is a commodity to be looked after and a company to use when needed.

Also, in one of the opening scenes where Roderigo shares with Brabantio that his daughter snuck out and calls Desdemona 's action a revolt against paternal authority.Which then Brabantio responds with, “ O heaven! How got she out?
Bennet ran the household. She made sure that the servants did what was expected of them, organized feasts (as seen when Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy visited Longbourn), and encouraged (almost to the point of forcing) her daughters to get married as soon as possible. However, theorists may also note that Lizzie, the protagonist of Pride and Prejudice, breaks some of the traditional gender roles of women during Austen 's time.

Sociology 1101 Zhiyuan Li Summary of Responses The three people I interviewed are my mother, my significant other and a close friend. For my mother, she finds herself compelled to fulfill gender expectations, but only in specific situations. These situations are almost exclusively related to work and office.
