Even if Ophelia wanted to speak up against her father, she was forbidden to do so. Due to gender roles, after Polonius gave his “advice”, she simply obeys due to the fact that she was not allowed to speak up even though her father insults her. Women did not stand up for themselves at this time and it causes Ophelia to accept anything her father instructs her to
Capulet kept the feud between the two families because he felt too proud of himself and his achievements. This ongoing feud made it impossible for Juliet to tell Mr. Capulet that she was already married, and to a Montague. “My sword, I say! Old Montague is come, And flourishes his blade in spite of me.” Mr. Capulet hears of a brawl in the streets of Verona and he automatically draws his weapon just because it’s against the Montagues. Mr. Capulet also refuses his Lady’s wishes for him not to fight because he felt like he was too good not to fight.
His treatment of Myrtle suggests no deep emotional investment either, as is showcased when he casually breaks her nose with “…a short deft movement” (Fitzgerald 41). He calls for her when it suits him, lies to her, and exerts physical dominance when she becomes inconveniently demanding. He has no desire to be close to his mistress; she is merely the means by which he avoids being close to his wife. Similarly, Daisy’s fear of intimacy, though as intense, is not quite as immediately apparent. Indeed, her marital fidelity, until her affair with Gatsby, and her distress over Tom’s involvement with Myrtle might suggest to some readers that Daisy desires emotional intimacy with her husband.
He places her in the nursery of the colonial mansion, despite her requests to be placed otherwise, “I don 't like our room a bit. I wanted one downstairs... but John would not hear of it” (Gilman, 2). The narrator’s husband dictates all aspects of her life to the point where she internalizes her husband 's authority, accepting his dominance over her, “I sometimes fancy that in my condition if I had less opposition and more society and stimulus—but John says the very worst thing I can do is think about my condition, and I confess it always makes me feel bad,” (Gilman, 2). Even though the narrator knows what she needs is to be active surrounded by people instead of cooped up alone in a house out in the countryside, she abruptly stops her train of thought as she remembers John’s instructions to not think about her condition. Connie and the narrator in “The Yellow Wallpaper” are both vulnerable and victims of circumstance.
This made Mrs. Murphy embarrassed and the situation later escalated into a bigger circumstance. This is significant because it shows that Carley thinks Mrs. Murphy is getting close to her so she keeps pushing her away. On top of Toni and Mrs. Murphy, Carley doesn't let the boys, Adam, Daniel, and Michael Eric, get close to her either. Adam and Carley don't really have that much of a relationship together. Their relationship is pretty much non-existant other than the fact that they are foster-siblings.In the beginning of the book, Carley didn't give Michael Eric her stuffed giraffe in fear that he would think she was like a sister to him and he would get affixed to her.
Due to the fact of not having her voice “heard” by men basically ignored, the sexist theme of the book comes to the surface once again. In book 1 Agamemnon and Achilles are having a conversation about Agamemnon’s wife and how he’d be okay with giving her up as long he got another “prize” even though he says, “…she is no inferior in beauty, in looks, or in character, or in her skills in hand work.” (1, 114-116). Agamemnon doesn’t see his wife as his soulmate but just an object he’s willing to give up because of an argument with Achilles. “Nonetheless I am willing to let her go if that is what’s best.” (1, 117-119). Agamemnon shows no actual feelings towards the situation except for the fact that he’s okay with losing his beautiful as long as he gets a brand new one.
This story blocked out feminism, it detailed into a world where women couldn’t compare to men. Janie allowed her grandmother to drive her into a relationship in which her grandmother saw fit. Janie was lost when it came to men, she unknowingly went into the relationship with Logan Killicks. In which Logan was much older than Janie and felt like he deserved respect.

He makes the readers beliefs of gender roles clearer by basically saying men attended with honor and respect but the women only went to be nosey.

If Tom cared about Daisy he would not be seeing other women, it was also revealed that Myrtle was not the first person Tom had an affair with, which just proves this even further. The actions Tom takes near the end of the story show how hypocritical Tom really is. For some reason, Tom is irritated that Gatsby and Daisy seem to have feelings for each other, but his affair with Myrtle is completely fine with him. To Tom, there is nothing wrong with him cheating on Daisy, but Daisy wanting to be with Gatsby is a horrid thing, even
Despite Emilia’s thoughts about her husband Iago, she is an obedient wife to him. Readers can imply that Iago does not see his wife or any woman as a person in society by the way he constantly mocks and disrespects his wife, never seems to offer his wife any affection, and he always talks about women in a negative way in general. Nevertheless, Emilia still wants to please her husband. Emilia says, “What he will do with [Desdemona’s handkerchief.] Heaven knows, not I. I nothing but to please his fantasy” (III.3.306-308).
Connie is heading towards the influence of Arnold Friend, who has seduced her into coming with him. Her family has not treated her as she wished, and she has absolutely nothing to lose, except her beauty, which is partially what led her here. The only reason she caught Arnold Friend’s attention is her lovely looks. Perhaps she is unaware of what may happen to her in the arms of Arnold, but one thing is certain: she is not being taken with her consent. Connie is hesitant on leaving, considering she does not know Arnold, nor his true intentions.
I have realized my family’s social group has the wrong idea of sexuality. I know their view is sexist and is unfair to women, it hurts women emotionally, and it limits women; but I had never really thought about the one fact that our textbook states so clearly: “gender roles constrict boys more often than girls” (chapter 12). I know about the wage gap and the feminist movement and the search equality; but I had never thought about the unfair restrictions and expectation that come with being born male. Men are expected to be the strong provider because they are male. They are expected to protect their loved ones physically and financially.
The woman could have been the human model for Jabba the Hut. These were some of the reasons Marci convinced Javier to move to Las Vegas, in addition to feeling sick of his grown kids and their entitlement issues. Clearly, they harbored ideas that dad was responsible for bailing them out of every poor choice they made, even if they treated him with less respect than bums on the streets. Mom and dad never taught them right from wrong. It was no secret that when it came to his kids, Javier was a permissive parent.
Sands’ relationship to show how slaves and whites often use each other without love in mind. Despite Linda bearing two children by Mr. Sands and finding him to be an agreeable man, she never expresses love for him, but rather presents their relationship in merely a transactional way without any emotions attached. In fact, when Linda whispers to Mr. Sands from the window in an attempt to secure emancipation for her own children, she believes that his lack of response is due to his unfeeling nature toward her. When Mr. Sands does not verbally respond to Linda, she wonders whether, “he had so little feeling for [their children’s] wretched mother that he would not listen a moment while she pleaded with him” (104). Despite the true reason for Mr. Sands lack of response owing to his inability to hear Linda, Jacobs uses this opportunity to make known the lack of faith Linda has in Mr. Sands emotional attachment to her.
