Also if the children would try and run they would be beaten, never killed. If they were killed they would make no money off of them. “At the center of the group, a girl my age crouches in the dirt. Her scalp has been freshly shaved—pale and fragile as a bird’s egg—and hanks of her long dark hair lie in coils at her feet”(McCormick 85). If the girls try to run away they get their heads shaved so everyone will know that they belong to someone else and they would be returned.
In this part, Curley’s wife talks to Candy about how his dreams are not going to work out. She says, “I seen too many of you guys...I know you guys” (Steinbeck, pg 79). This proves that Curley’s wife has been at that house for a long time with no one to talk to, and it’s caused her to have a constant need for attention. The only way she knows how to get attention is by messing with people. Curley’s wife tries to explain to Candy that his dreams will never work out which portrays that she deals with her attention by bring people down.

In ‘Eveline’ we are introduced to a young women who is unable to move outside the family home and is trapped in a web of both despair and a simply daily routine whilst living a most unhappy life. ‘The Story portrays Eveline as trapped between two different versions of patriarchy- her father’s parsimony and brutality and Franks possible immorality’(Ingman, 2009, p. 100). Eveline fears that she will turn into her mother in the near future. A women whose life is full of boredom and ritual domestic duties.
