Whether it's from being a woman, old or disabled it's made the characters dependent on others and overall lonely. Lennie, Candy and Curley’s wife all experience inequity from people who want to use them for personal gain or to make themselves feel better. Another person discriminated against is Curley's wife, who doesn't even have the honor of being named. With her controlling husband and being the only woman on the farm, Curley’s wife is constantly ignored or dismissed,“ Well you keep away from her, ‘cause she's a rat trap if I ever seen one.
When Curley's wife tries to talk to Lennie he refuses to speak to her, and she says “‘Why can’t I talk to you? I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely’”(Steinbeck 86).

Juliet replied to her mom obediently “I’ll look to like, if looking liking move” (Shakespeare 21) about the man that she’s going to marry without hesitation. She don’t even considered whether that man would be a good selection or not.
