The writer proved the point with relatable dialogs and an anecdote to let readers visualize a plausible situation. The author also connected this argument with argument #2 to demonstrate her point made before. Argument #4: “Women's conversational habits are as frustrating to men as men’s are to women” (Tanner 19). Tanner gave examples of speeches of women’s talking habits to compare to the silence men give each other. She included a book Fighting for Life by Walter Ong to point out the opposition between two different genders method in conversing.
As the story progresses, he begins to understand why he thinks in the manner that he does. Sanders does an excellent job of showing how his thinking changes as the text progresses. He does this through his brilliant use of interior monologue and personal anecdotes. In his essay, Sanders opens with a debate that he had with his friend Anneke. He thinks that women have a harder time in today’s world than men.
Barbara Ehrenreich, author of “What I’ve Learned From Men” develops a strong feminist character, for which she is the narrator. This essay highlights the differences between men and women and the ongoing power of the sexes. Ehrenreich states in her essay that there is one thing that women should learn from men, which is to be tough.

Her encounter with the lecherous professor starts off her character development.
Woman go through a lot to be judge, belittled, or stressed. Woman shouldn’t be afraid to express their selves and feel like they don’t have enough power not to say a word. We all should be equal and shouldn’t be judge for our genders. I honestly feel like any women who went through the things Asante went through and is able to make a better person out of their selves and as strong as the next person. This author MK Asante wrote this book to let viewers see no matter what situation you’re in you can always get out and make yourself
In Jamaica Kincaid story, ‘’Girl’’ and in Anna Quindlen story, ‘’Between The Sexes A Great Divide’. It talks about too strong woman 's point of view of gender, for example ‘’ Girl ‘’ talks about how Global woman teaching which are how a woman should act in society and what they should and should not do around men For example How ladies should not be a slut around man and how man and woman enjoy bully each other from time to time. While ’’Between the Sexes a Great Divide’ ‘talks about how men and women will always be different, but they can still have a successful relationship. Anna shows this by talking about her son 's and how her son 's best friend is a girl and they still enjoy each other 's company, Or how a woman and man always
Also, it is interesting that women do not protest this perception. It is acknowledged by them and this circumstance is getting weirder nowadays. Lorella Zanardo's documentary introduces the idea of modern women presented as 'grotesque' or vulgar in the main stream media. Extreme level of obedience of women attracts most of us attention i believe. As for the book Penelopaid attributions are dissimilar, the terms which are grotesque or vulgar replaces with loyal and chaste like Penelopaid the Odysseus's wife.
In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles). Although Emilia does not ever say these powerful words out loud, she is still willing to not follow her husbands commands despite his strong character. Emilia proves again that she has powerful thoughts when she stated that,”Let husbands know, Their wives have sense like them; they see and smell, And have their palates both for sweet and sour As husbands have’ (Othello IV.3.92-5) Emilia contends that women are physically the same to men,they both get distraught and have issues that trouble each other, they should treat each other similarly. Women can still analyze literature about the inequality and rights for women through many of the injustices that are modern today.
Abate (169) acknowledged that, compared to other novels of similar theme, The Outsiders was “lack of true profanity, drug use, and sex acts.” Is it characteristically a touch of femininity that women writer produce when writing about violence? There were two female characters present in the story of the outsiders: Cherry Valance and Marcia who reveal certain stereotypes about femininity. First, Cherry embodies the woman as emphatic and anti-violent peace maker. She enjoyed long conversation she had with Ponyboy, a greaser, listened to him and showed empathy toward Ponyboy’s problematic life ( Hinton 30-34). Cherry is also portrayed as a smart girl of the upper class who is soft, educated, and is sick of fights.
One of these perspectives is analyzing communication through gender. In the book, You Just Don’t Understand, Deborah Tannen (1990) popularized the term “genderlect” to describe the way in which men and women communicate with each other. She suggested that men and women have different styles of conversing, forming two distinct dialects. In a review of Tannen’s book, DeFrancisco (1992) attributed the differing communication styles of men and women to the respective cultures in which they grow up. Because of such gender differences, misunderstanding between men and women creates a gap in the communication process.
Questions: 2.) In this section, the Wife of Bath comments on the different answers given to the Knight, and her comments give insight to her opinions and views of women. For example, the text states, “Others assert we women find it sweet when we are thought dependable, discreet and secret, firm of purpose and controlled, never betraying things that we are told. But that’s not worth the handle of a rake; women conceal a thing? For Heaven’s sake!” This quote suggests that the Wife of Bath believes all women are incapable of keeping a secret, which is an untrue and harmful stereotype.
The author thinks women can hardly wear anything without a fear of being judged. She provides few pieces of evidence on how women usually are targeted and not men in this society in respect to interpretation. She argues on how different forms have Mr. as a suffix which shows nothing, but in the case of women there is Mrs. and also Miss which reflects the marital status of women. She raises her point also about how a woman changes her surname with the men after marriage. I personally believe that she had some evidence and her argument really made me think twice o and made me think why women are judged so much and she was also definitely true in her argument.
In class we read “The Boy Code” written by a journalist, Michele Landsberg. I liked the format/layout of the article because the author initiated her introduction with an abstract outline, which gives the reader an overview of the topic. For example, “Landsberg questions the worldwide tendency to raise boys to be tough and emotionally limited.” This statement (located in the last sentence of the abstract) tells the reader the author will explain her concerns about the controversial issue throughout the article. Thus, the abstract benefits readers as it helps them understand what they will be reading and how it will impact them and their lifestyle. One thing I dislike about the article was when the author states, “Schools must take
He is emotionally weak and tends to be more kind than Sofia and has been compared to a woman on more than one occasion, all because he shows compassion and works hard. Feminism has taken strides towards breaking society’s gender norms to try and stop the ingraining of gender roles in the minds of children or to encourage those who wish to follow an ambition no matter if it is commonly a male or female job. Walker uses her characterization and plot development to show her concerns about gender roles and
I maintain the wife’s modesty topos for a second time because it ironically creates humoristic confusion: “I will only be honest, so you do not confuse .” That is to say, if the wife agrees only on telling a tale her own way, why does she mention honesty?—this is the wife’s first attempt to purposely confuse her audience by complicating her narrative. In fact, she admits to being dishonest when
