There are many connections that can be made to the book The Handmaid’s Tale and these connections are explored in the following paragraphs. Text-to-Text (T-T): In the Handmaid’s Tale, life is limited by a certain organization that call themselves “The Eye”.

For decade women have been discriminated by society, all around the world. In many countries women are still treated as the inferior sex. “daily life for women in the early 1800s in Europe(Britain), was that of many obligations and few choices. Some even compare the conditions of women in time as a form of slavery.” (Smith, Kelley. "
There are several women in Genesis that portray the roles of female characters. The Book of Genesis is essentially a modulation of God’s intentions of males and females. In Genesis, God creates man in his image; noting that man needs a so-called companion, God creates woman. In the Book of Genesis, men and women are equal in that they are children of God, however; men and women are not equal in the sense that women are to attend to men, men are more so dominant than women are. God made woman out of a man, he made woman an attender to man, each contributing to one another and filling what the other is deficient of.
Everyone loves music, don’t they? Or at least grow up listening to it? I Sold My Soul to Rock and Roll by Kristina Gray, the text I read, made Rock and Roll seem controversial to the common comprehension I already had on this "loud" and "raucous" genre of music. In my mind, rock stars have crazy fun nights and they partied on every tour they adjourned. Gray conveyed how the lives of men in the rock and roll industry really are, because of this I agree that women are not portrayed accurately in this category of “white music," and I say this because I am studying women's feminism.
Its fair to say through the years literature has shown common themes and ideologies that connect deeply with values and concepts learned from history. The influence of these themes and ideologies have been turned into theories that we use to analyze and connect to stories and novels that we read. When these theories are applied, multiple stories can be used and compared. There is common themes that will show up in a story that will be related to the theory and used to compare and contrast stories to the theories. Feminist theory is one of the theories that is largely looked at when analyzing the books “Of mice and men” and “The Great Gatsby.”
Essentially, marriage in the 1700’s was seen merely as a means of birthing heirs and finding a way to financially support yourself, so it resulted in both men and women being devalued. It is universally known that women were often treated as inept and helpless rather than sophisticated people with autonomy and capabilities. In fact, during this time, “married women were consistently compared with minor children and the insane-- both categories of people considered incapable of caring for themselves. To marry a woman was, in one sense, to ‘adopt’ her-- or at least to adopt responsibility for all the circumstances of life with which she entered the marriage” (Teachman 39). Furthermore, when women got married, they would legally cease to exist.
Women’s Rights in Modern Society Gender equality will not be eliminated until 2095 which is another 81 years, that women won’t be respected on the same level as men. This issue affects some women more than others to the point it has ruined their lives. Where the gender equality situation stands in society it is looked down on because this issue should be solved long before now. While “The Crucible” explores majority of minority of human nature, the issue of Women’s Rights in contemporary society illustrates we are still faced with this majority over minority through wage gaps, education, workforce. The issue of majority of minority through women's rights in society relates to The Crucible through this on going problem of men feeling a sense
Religion has a varying presence in different societies and culture. It has a special force that binds a race or religious group together. There are thousands of religions all over the world and they do not only shape social culture, but also the view of women in society. As religion has changed throughout the span of human life on earth so has the viewpoint of women in religion. Therefore, religion has a huge impact on the roles of women.
Marriage depends on contractual relationship between two people who promise to love each other for better or for worse. Although, it does not have the aim to restrict person’s freedom, some people tend to create pressure on the one he or she loves in their marriage. It causes someone to feel their freedom is taken away by the person that he or she is married with. On the other hand some marriages enable people to express their ideas, thoughts and feelings to each other so fairly that people are not likely to forget of their memories when they get divorced.
The main difference is that women’s motivation is to avoid having to give sex rather than to gain a higher price in exchange for sexual favors. We think several ﬁndings point to the relevance of exchange for other resources, such as the fact that women seem to relax their suppression of female sexuality when their economic opportunities increase. Still, we do not think that the evidence is thorough or powerful enough at present to reject this alternative explanation entirely. One may also suggest that insofar as the lesser sexual interest of women is relative rather than absolute, the discrepancy may be a matter of artiﬁcially heightened desire among men rather than artiﬁcially reduced desire among women. For example, McIntosh (1978) proposed
Women also face unequal opportunity and treatment. In most world history, the man has been the leader and the woman, the follower. Men are more greatly respected and thought highly of. During the 18th century at the time of The Declaration of Independence the inferior attitude toward women was prevalent. Historian Mary Beth Norton wrote about treatment of women in this time period in the book, Liberty’s Daughters.
