I Love Lucy Too In the classic show “I Love Lucy”, Lucy Ricardo was the title character that everyone adored. While she was a housewife and later, a mother, Lucy was also a humorous character that naively believed she would be in show business and become a star. This plot device was used to show women, in a comical way, that they should stop having ambitions and remain at home. Lucy is always getting into shenanigans, dragging her friends and husband into the mess as well, and the message the show sent was to avoid being like her. Though the show is well-loved and surprisingly modern for the time it aired, Lucy Ricardo is still seen as someone an everyday 1950’s housewife should not aspire to be.

Rosario Ferre, a Puerto Rican feminist writer, wrote “The Youngest Doll” in response to the myth of the Pandora. (Encyclopedia Britannica) This legend is of a woman named Pandora, who opened a box her husband told her not too, unleashing mayhem onto the world. (Encyclopedia Mythica) In this legend, women are the cause of issues, whereas in contrast, Ferre scrutinizes men as the cause of issues. Ferre delves into the idea of gender roles and status power through the relationship of the youngest niece, the young doctor, and the doll. This paper will argue that ‘The Youngest Doll’ is a short story centralized on discussing exploited women in failed marriages.
