The six roles exposed in this film are the roles of women as a daughter, mothers, mothers-in-laws, daughters-in-laws, sister-in-laws, and sisters. “Dadi 's Family” demonstrates how women in Dadi 's household fight to secure their status around the idea of the dominant patriarchal mentality which insists that females are the inferior caste. The dedication to the production of the film consists of following the life of Dadi and her daughters-in-law showing the viewers the struggles they encounter trying to maintain the traditional ways of living the gender roles that have been developed for generations. In Dadi 's Family, it is clear to see that there is a different role play that women and men play which demonstrates inequality between the different dynamics of gender and power. There are many ways in this film where we see women dependent and subordinate to male authority.
The Help is an intriguing novel about racial issues, as well as social classes. In this novel the character Hilly Holbrook serves the role of a villain. Her villainous actions throughout The Help show the themes of the book, such as race, social classes, as well as justice.

Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart is a book based up on pre-colonial Nigeria back in the 1890s and it focuses on on traditional society’s and colonialism. The author presents the book Things Fall Apart through the eyes of the main character Okonkwo who was a respected elder in the village. Women in the book were all housewives and they were shown as weak, and as second class citizens of the Umuofian society.

Throughout this essay I will be explaining the gender roles, comparing them and how they affect the Umuofian society.
The social dogma situates the women at the lowest position in society, depriving them the opportunity of being respected by their own knowledge and capabilities. Due to the fact that Austen work was contemporary to her life, her novel conveys the restrains imposed to women but at the same time follows the archetype inflicted that a social order must be followed where women must find the proper candidate for marriage, proper of Victorian times. This notion is clearly conveyed in her novel “Emma” as the main character, Emma, withdraws herself from the group of women who find themselves in urgent need of finding a husband. She states that: “My being charming, Harriet, is not quite enough to induce me to marry; I must find other people charming -- one other person at least.

In author Jane Austen 's 1813 romance novel Pride and Prejudice, social class stereotypes play a very key part when affecting the rolls of the Bennet sisters. Very clear distinctions between people who are grouped into classes are shown throughout the novel by characters of different classes stereotyping against others. This causes problems for many of the main characters who often fails to meet the social standards of others and stereotypes others themselves When it comes to social stereotypes Elizabeth Bennet, the second oldest Bennet sister, is no stranger. Throughout the novel her mother is often reminding her how to properly dress and correcting her on her manners. For example, in the beginning of the novel when Elizabeth’s sister Jane becomes sick when she is off visiting the Bingley’s, Elizabeth walks over a mile to get to her.
She knits a register of all the oppressors belonging to the ancien régime, dooming them to destruction. Her knitting is an unalterable chronicle, a grim history which records the past in a mysterious female language that only she and her sister-knitters can decipher. It forms an analogue for omniscient narration in the novel, contrasting with Dickens 's apparently more fluid and sympathetic handling of history.
