The Awakening, she demonstrates how being restricted to one role because of their gender can, therefore, have major consequences just like how it did to Edna. Women were viewed as nothing more than a maid, when in reality they did so much and were not appreciated. They had to cook, clean, look after the children and much more when they could have been doing bigger and better things. Those who decided to not do what was required of them had to face major consequences such as their children being taken away or being shunned by their community. Women today are finding cures for diseases or running their own businesses, instead of being the one at home yet, they do not get the same praise men do.
Gilman intentionally tried to make Jane a typical woman of the time period. She is economically dependent on her husband, as she does not work out of the house.

Poverty also led the Lacks 's family to injustice for them and their mother 's cells because they simply couldn 't afford a lawyer. The book says, "So in attempt to get Hopkins to give them what they saw as their cut of the HeLa profits they made handouts about Henrietta Lack 's family being owed their due, and gave them to customers at Lawrence 's store". This illustrates that although Lawrence and Sonny couldn 't afford a lawyer, the next best thing was to spread the word, and also shows how they just had to make do with what they had. Rebecca Skloot shows how poverty was a major problem for the Lacks 's family in, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks". Ranging from medical problems to being an easy target to having injustice.
A transition from a dutiful housewife to a free spirit was not a peaceful one. In chapter 27 symbolically she “took off her wedding ring, flung it upon the carpet. When she saw it lying there, she stamped her heel upon it, striving to crush it.” She wanted the outer reality to match what she must have felt inside.

The first or major event that jumpstarted Janie’s life was perhaps when Nanny convinced Janie that she should marry Logan, which wasn’t all for the right reasons. Nanny wanted her to marry him because he had money and he could provide for her and keep her financially stable. Their relationship was brittle and dry. Logan just expected her to clean up, make the food and basically be a house slave. There was no love in that relationship and it was mentally draining Janie.
This distinguishes of how the readers can misunderstand Curley’s wife characterization by reason of the lack of historical context. Adding on, the historical content elucidates about the real struggle women had to endure, by having to do so many chores in the house without ever receiving a break. From the “Women in the New Deal Era”(PDF) the author states, “Women not only had to worry about supporting their families by providing food, shelter, and clothing, but they also were depended on to deliver emotional support to their loved ones in those trying times, in any way they possibly could.” Not only were women supposed to physically take care of the family they had to mentally take care of them too. A woman shouldn’t be bound in chains where she is forced to work till she dies.
By doing this she explains how working-class parents were afraid for their child to enter the real world because they felt they might grow to be ashamed of their background, or they wouldn’t want to return home, or only come home to prove that their life will be better than their parents. “Class realities separated me from fellow students” (Hooks 419). In most class meetings, class disparity was not a topic of discussion and Hooks never discussed how she began to feel a sense of guilt when she thought about the brown skin Filipina women who got paid to clean the college living areas or how she tried to make an effort to send money home to help her mother out. Even though Hooks knew she would be receiving a good education she also knew she had the option to rebel at any

Lastly, In the story her husband never lets her talk about house she feels, so she keeps it all bottled up in her head which eventually drives her crazy. As “The Yellow Wallpaper” States “It 's hard to talk to john about my case, because he loves me so. But I tried to last night” (777 Gilman). This show another great example of women cruelty because back then women were not allowed to state there own opinion and also
