Women have always been thought of as the less domineering sex. All through history females have fought the stereotypes of being simple housewives with no greater use then producing babies and maintaining a household. This repression, combined with the social systems of years past has lead woman to feel inferior and naturally acquire an internal dependency toward the males in their lives who are viewed as superior. Many notable characters in literature have carried out the role of this inferior spouse and are no doubt created from the hostility of oppression women have felt for hundreds of years. We see two of these characters in Delia from Zora Neale Hurston’s story “Sweat” and John’s wife in Charlotte Perkins Gillman’s story “The Yellow Wallpaper”.
Heroines are supposed to be “good” women. While a lot of ideas and values change from century to century, some things don’t change for heroines. Until recently, all heroines had to have one thing in common: she had to be true to her man, and put him and their children before herself. Because of this, there don’t seem to be many legends about women in the past. Legends have to change through the years or no one could relate to them.
Literary Theory: Psychoanalysis In The Awakening by Kate Chopin, Edna experiences feelings that she has never felt before in her life. She finds that the life she lives is quite dull, and she begins to rebel against her husband, and her society’s standards for women’s behavior. These feelings can be explained by psychoanalysis, which involves the unconscious, the desires, and the defenses. Edna feels no love for her husband, and she feels that she is kind of like a caged bird, held down by her husband and her role and a mother and a wife.

Women colleges C. Coeducation Conclusion The Fight for Women’s Rights Throughout history women have been hidden behind their husbands.

The “Judges” Are Watching: Stifling the Woman For as far back as history there has women have always struggled to rise above the expectations that they can only be wives and mothers. Society conditions women from a young age; teaching that girls play with dolls and boys play with trucks, that “ladies” do not lift up their dresses in public and that Daddies go to work while Mommies take care of the children.
