In one of her more revealing moments, she threatens to have the black stable-hand lynched if he complains about her to the boss. Her insistence on flirting with Lennie seals her unfortunate fate. Although Steinbeck does, finally, offer a sympathetic view of Curley’s wife by allowing her to voice her unhappiness and her own dream for a better life, women have no place in the author’s idealized vision of a world structured around the brotherly bonds of men. In Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men women are portrayed as discriminated. In the times John Steinbeck lived in women were not held in high regard but they were just present to serve men.

First, women are inferior to men because they were never given a position of power. During the 1960s, woman did not have any experience with power because they still lived in a society where men are taking control. In quote, “These gender roles have been used very successfully to justify inequities, which still occur today, such as excluding women from equal access to leadership and decision – making positions” (Tyson, page 85). Males still see females as patriarchal women, not as leaders or decision makers.
Such as women can not perform manual work as well as men, on the other hand, a man’s entire chemistry is different allowing him to be less emotional than a woman. Jane Addams and her colleague Ellen Gates Starr founded Hull House a place for down and out women. Jane treated these women as friends and ignoring their faults, became very close to these women. Being close to these women allowed Jane to understand their struggle but much of the information she gathered remained unpublished. She saw social differentiation as a block that society needed to get over, infuriately she herself was a victim.
Continuously, Jacobs expresses her deep hatred of slavery, and all of its implications. She dreads such an institution so much that she sometimes regards death as a better alternative than a life in bondage. For Harriet, slavery was different than many African Americans. She did not spend her life harvesting cotton on a large plantation. She was not flogged and beaten regularly like many slaves.
Like many feminist writer, Cockerline focuses her emphasis on how social norm discriminate women by inhibit their job opportunities. Throughout the history, social norm restricts women’s power by only allow them to contribute to certain job tasks such as maid, cook, and house keeper. In the beginning of the story, Elizabeth’s father “refuses[s] to pay her school fees” since “his wife had finally birthed a son” directly supports the idea that men are more superior to women. Since education is one of the key elements that lead to better chances of having a job, the narrator eliminates this opportunity to contribute to Elizabeth’s misfortune. Furthermore, the narrator indicates “[i]t can be a hard place for a
Throughout the article, she references women and the culture of overwork, completely disregarding the men in society today that are “workaholics” in order to support their families. Because of her feminist beliefs, she takes a primary view of the issue as one the only effects women in this article. There are however a large number of men who become workaholics in order to support a family, where the woman chooses to stay home with the children for example. When Rebick states “women need to make overwork a major public policy issue,” she is being prejudice towards the male population that is also effected by overwork. She only references woman in her advice on how to overcome the issue, therefore leaving out a major demographic in the workforce.

Fearless Fourteen is a book with a strong feminine background including all main characters being females and giving the impression throughout the book that males are second class citizens. Morelli gives her take on men after a secret was revealed stating: “ The only men you can count on these days are Ben and Jerry.” (Evanovich 34). She describes men as untrusting, useless people who are below women. In this text, the representation of sexes are quite one sided. In order for a book to be used for educational purposes it is ideal that it has equal parts in gender with no exception because of mixed classes which may easily lead to lack of interest and work ethic.
Instead of openly hitting on a girl, we must flirt, we must hint, being openly sexual is frowned upon at school or work. The men of my generation have been raised differently; many have been raised by women without a male figure in their life. Women are also different, they work for themselves, compete and are self-sufficient; clearly a stark contrast from their classical counterparts. Men work alongside women in the workplace at school and are taught to be professional, to respect a woman as a colleague instead of an object of sexual desire. However I believe that beneath this layer of “properness” there is the still the raw sexuality of our nature.
Heavens!”. He says this because he cannot believe that he had to stoop so low as to ask his aunt for a job, that he was so desperate to travel that he asked a woman for financial assistance.

In addition, Marlow’s aunt is portrayed as a very naïve and ignorant woman, for she is blind to the negative consequences of imperialism and is convinced that Europe’s colonization of Africa is a beneficent
