Women are also set a standard to be ladies, doing things such as wearing dresses and not playing outside like males are allowed to. A quote in To Kill a Mockingbird states, “Miss Maudie on a jury would be impressive. I thought of old Mrs. Dubose in her wheelchair- ‘Stop that rapping, John Taylor, I want to ask this man something.’ Perhaps our forefathers were wise.” (Lee Pg.296). This means that women are known as “delicate” and that they need to be protected from doing stressful jobs such as being on a jury. Maybe they just don 't want women

The 3 points I will cover today are gender roles in the United States, the Middle East, and how gender roles are changing in these countries. In the United States gender roles effect both men and women. "The roles of women in society" Joann Marshall talks about how women are expected to be good cooks, cleaners, and take care of the family.

1920’s: Women’s Suffrage Alice Paul once said; “There will never be a new world order until woman are part of it.” In this quote the women’s right leader refers to how women are important to society. Society need women because of their capacity in a smartest way to take decisions. Unfortunately back to the 1920s man did not think women were necessary, in fact that all the women were being excluded from politics, sports, jobs and education. Women’s suffrage struggled with not only being accepted in society in daily activities, but fighting for the right to vote, the access to higher education, being excluded from jobs, equal payment opportunities, and sports activities. On the 1920s the right to vote was not designated for women.

Furthermore, Juliet asked Romeo if he truly loved her to make sure he will oblige to her conditions in their relationship. Another example where Juliet
The Renaissance was a revolutionary time for the cultivation of the arts and science, however it was also a time when society pressured women to be the traditional seen but not heard. Women in the Renaissance time were meant to be dutiful daughters, then eventually become dutiful wives. One of the biggest sins a woman could do was dishonor the family name, may it be via adultery or other social crimes. This ideology is present in Shakespeare’s drama, Much Ado About Nothing, which centers around two main, female characters Beatrice and Hero. Both of whom are noblewomen in Renaissance Messina.

There’s only life.” This quote perfectly sums up this article in saying that balancing work, and family can be one of the biggest deterrents for women to go into executive roles, and that since this is known large companies should be helping their mothers, not abandoning them. The article also sheds light on the fact that mothers, and most women do not have the choice to work; although they are becoming more educated women are not being rewarded in the same way.

The author thinks women can hardly wear anything without a fear of being judged. She provides few pieces of evidence on how women usually are targeted and not men in this society in respect to interpretation. She argues on how different forms have Mr. as a suffix which shows nothing, but in the case of women there is Mrs. and also Miss which reflects the marital status of women.

The views of the society in the book reflect the ideas of conservatives who felt that maintaining traditional roles for women was more important than having equal rights. The character of Serena Joy in the Handmaid’s tail mirrors Phyllis Schlafly, who campaigned against the ERA, hypocritically arguing that women belonged at home taking care of household matters.
