Gabal Said The Trifles of Society The society holds different realities to act naturally obvious, that all men are made equivalent, and that they are enriched by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that include; liberty, life, and the quest for happiness among others. "Trifles" by Susan Glaspell, is a one-demonstration play, which incorporates components of what the women’s suffrage development is about. The play from Glaspell recounts the tale of a murder riddle of the wedded couple of Mrs. Minnie Wright and her better half, the murder casualty, John Wright; this story likewise joins the temperament of society at the time towards women, and how they were seen as trifled in the eyes of society as they are under the subordinate of men.

Something that the men only brushed off as a joke when the women brought it up. The oppression of women was not at the top of the list in everyday conversation because people did not think it was something that was an everyday occurrence, however, Susan Glaspell changed this when she wrote her short play Trifles.

The gender war in Susan Glaspell’s Trifles is displayed in three ways: the men’s words and actions towards the women, the setting of the story, and the symbols embedded within the play. Throughout Trifles, the men’s actions and dialogue are very condescending towards the women. In most cases, they blew off their input into the investigation like they weren’t even talking, or in the room for that matter. When in reality, the women are the ones who ultimately solve the crime according to the story. There are various cases in the story where the men have snide remarks, or sound snobby and sarcastic.
Subsequently, when the women as the oppressed party who have been treated unequally cannot demand such abuse to be punished since it is not written in man’s law, they will seek their own justice. These ideas of equality and justice are depicted well through Susan Glaspell’s Trifles that was made in 1916. Through the murder case of Mr. Wright, the play reveals how oppression can trigger women’s struggle.

Poetry is a great way of expression, and one example of a great poet is Sylvia Plath. Plath was an amazing poet in the modernist period. She was influenced greatly by the era she lived in and her emotions during the time. She went through many hard times in her life, so she wrote to keep her mind off of them. Some of her poems included “Aftermath,” “Lorelei,” and “All Appearance.” She used many types of figurative language to convey the message of the poem.

For centuries women have been uniting to eliminate their gender’s subjectivity to prejudice; however, the battle against misogyny is even now unfinished. Incompleteness and sisterhood are two themes reiterated throughout Susan Glaspell’s short story, “A Jury of Her Peers.” Glaspell personifies and emphasizes said central ideas through the characterization of the protagonist, Martha Hale. The initial setting of the play immediately identifies Martha as a housewife who, as pertaining to the time period of the plot, satisfies the stereotype of women in the early part of the twentieth century.
