The men did not pay attention to any of their wives concerns and they would often let the woman know what they were saying was nonsense. The narrator 's tone when she states that “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in a marriage” would cause one to think that the way they were treated, like a child, was normal for this time period (Perkins 768). Also, the men didn’t want the women working too hard. One might think this seems like it would be great, but in reality it wasn 't that much fun just sitting around at home all day. The reader can see this when the narrator tries to write her daily journals, but she has to do it in a sneaky way so her husband will not catch her doing so.
Although there is no clear statement that shows Louise to have an oppressive marriage, there are ambiguous statements about the marriage that show she feels caged. During the event of finding out about Brently’s death, Louise did not respond “as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance. She wept at once, with sudden wild abandonment” (Chopin), due to Brently’s death she is finally able to let out emotions that she has held in for so many years of being a dutiful wife. Once Louise is left alone to grieve she reflects upon her feelings and her marriage. The narrator points out that Louise knows she will cry again for him when she sees his funeral, remembering his “kind, tender hands...the face that had never looked save with love upon her” (Chopin).
Even when her husband clearly didn’t love her anymore, she still wished for him to change his mind so she could stay. She didn’t even know what to do when she wasn’t under his control. Although Desiree didn 't have autonomy when it came to her husband, she did choose not to go home after leaving. She went down her own path after living her entire life being controlled by the people around her. In a sense, Desiree did achieve autonomy after leaving but only after leaving her husband she was truly
All around the world, women were not even allowed to vote because men thought that they did not know anything about politics and were not able to make such complicated decisions. Women in the past were not allowed to vote, to speak, work or do anything that men were doing. This kind of life for women was made even more difficult because they were also victims of physical and emotional abuse in their families. When the time came for women to get married, parents didn’t choose someone their daughter might love, but rather their families forced them to marry someone who came from a rich and powerful family, never mind if he was decades older than their daughter. In this society, however, there always were the so-called “black sheep” of the family; women who stood up to this injustice and demanded they be heard.

The Journey of Self Identity in Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” In Kate Chopin 's “The Story of an Hour” she tells the tale of a woman in the nineteenth century dealing with an internal battle after hearing the news that her husband has died in an accident. During that time period, women were never their own identity, going from being a daughter to being a wife, they had no time for self-exploration and were always inferior to a man. Women were told their purpose was to take care of their husband, tend to his needs and have children. Chopin creates a very brief story to compare relational identity to self-identity, and by doing so, exposes women who have not developed a sense of self that is separate and stable and do not know how to “There would be no one to live for her… She would live for herself” (Chopin 67). To emphasize the importance of independence and identity, Chopin changes the protagonist’s name from
The author notes that she “... did not notice my father’s silence…,” and “... did not notice my mother’s absence…” Then, later on that night, we hear Lizabeth’s mother and father have a conversation in another room whilst laying down on her (and her brother’s) makeshift bed. After hearing her father woes, her father started crying “loudly and painfully, and cried helplessly and hopelessly into the dark night.” (Marigolds 42) This event combined with her mother’s absence from her life and the previous affair from earlier that day made Lizabeth feel extremely alone and, with Joey struggling to catch up, floored it to Miss Lottie’s house. When Lizabeth got to Miss Lottie’s house, she furiously ripped and tore marigolds from the patch, decimating all the beautiful flowers that were there! What drove her to do this? Well as the story states, Lizabeth had gone mad due to “...all the smoldering emotions of that summer swelled in me and burst- the great need for my mother who was never there, the hopelessness of our poverty and degradation, the bewilderment of being neither child nor woman and yet both at once, the fear unleashed by my father’s
Since I’ve heard to never use this form of language, I always refrained from it and I thought that nurses in hospitals also do not use it. However, I came to realize that there are many nurses and caregivers who use it. Although the client did not share how she felt when she was addressed as “momma” or “grandma,” I do not think that she liked it. I personally think that she did not feel respected because it is baby talk. If I were in her shoes and I was talked to in that way I would not like it either.
