The unequal distribution of domestic responsibilities has held women back for generations; it still today continues to hinder women’s progression in the work-place. It seems like everyone thinks mum will stay at home and do the dishes, her little boy will grow up to become a big, strong man but not her daughter, of course, she is far too busy washing her own children’s dishes. But it is not just women who suffer sexism, men do also. For example: Shelia’s Wheels sell cheaper car insurance to women only, and they say it's because statistics show women to be safer drivers. Would it would be fair for a bank to offer men better rates on loans if stats showed that men were better at paying back loans than women were, utterly ludicrous.

She means that he is dead to her. Even in death, she refuses to be viewed as just another woman to Anse and her children. In the beginning, Addie’s identity is clouded; she does not know what she wants in life until she has her first child with Anse. Addie finds out that she is getting used as a child bearer and she says, “I knew that it had been, not that my aloneness had to be violated over and over each
Line. 10 -11 “ He was an old head, on young shoulders.” Our narrator was a ‘planner’ she had everything sorted out, and was sure of what she wanted to do in her future. She was not a wild or spontaneous person like Jed. But that was also one of their relationship’s contrasts, as mentioned before, their differences made them strong, but also weak in the end. The narrator is still a person who is sure of herself; she has grown up and proves it, when Jed told/texts that he drove his wife insane because she wasn’t our narrator, and she didn’t reply, because she knew she can’t be stuck in her past, and can’t go back to her high school love life.

Nanny wanted to feel like Janie was stable, so she could rest in peace. In a way, this makes sense because it seems like Nanny is only trying to do what's best for Janie's future, but in reality Nanny is just teaching Janie that in order to be "alright," she has to have a man by her side. Janie soon rebelled and met Joe Starks. The book and movie both do an exceptional job at showing Janie developing her own mind about what/who she wants. This is definitely a step in the right direction, but she's still using Nanny's tactic by jumping from Logan Killicks right to Joe
The point, of course, was that housewives were expected to do all these things, but no one ever expected a man to be capable of these tasks. The underlying question of the essay was “Why?” She is not serious in the story. She doesn’t want a wife literally. The main examples given in the story highlight the author’s sarcasm. Brady says that she wants a wife who will work and send her to school so that she would not have to work as hard while working to become more economically independent.
If the grandmother stopped preaching about how the new world has fallen from the Christian faith, and opened her eyes to her real life, she would have saved the whole family from the misfit. Garo 2 The grandmother’s son, Bailey, seemed exhausted of having to take care of his own mother. He doesn’t bother raising his head when his mother is trying to get him to read the paper about “the misfit.” This creates Foreshadowing and a bit of irony to the story because in the end the misfit is what brings him and his family to his demise. Not only does he ignore his mother, but when she wants to take the children to see the old plantation, he sighs, gets aggravated and didn’t want to be bothered. Although her tired son may have a good soul, he is not a good man in the sense he seems tired and lifeless in the story.
