The Oppression of Women Rosa Parks once said, “There is just so much hurt, disappointment, and oppression one can take... The line between reason and madness grows thinner.” Literature often reflects such oppression and how it can lead to despair in the characters’ lives. For example, the lives of Jane in “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Mrs. Mallard in “The Story of an Hour,” and Miss Emily in “A Rose for Emily,” prove that an overwhelming amount of oppression can affect a person’s mental state. A woman in each of these stories struggles due to the oppression from which she suffers at the hands of either her husband or her father. Jane, in “The Yellow Wallpaper,” falls under the oppression of her husband.
She always starts her conversation by asking “You guys seen Curley anywhere?”.

By repeating that question over and over, the readers feel like she doesn’t care about her husband. Therefore, their hatred automatically is poured on her head. Beyond that, there’s another interpretation of her action.
