Throughout the course of the nineteen twenties a woman’s role in society began to change. They started to become more independent and self serving. Although women were beginning to rebel during this time, Fitzgerald expresses the way women were categorized before the change within his novel. In The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald explores the subordination and derogation of women during the nineteen twenties. By doing so, he showcases them as unworthy, and does not give them proper recognition in how they were valued. Fitzgerald displays three different roles of women, including the three main women characters including Daisy Buchanan, Jordan Baker, and Myrtle Wilson. When each character is introduced it is clear how each women is represented.
