She started viewing herself in the wallpaper and also seeing other persons. These symbolize the condition of the women in that time, just being trapped and have no power to change that. Seeing the description the woman makes about the wallpaper and how uncomfortable she is being around it, you can see how the situation of being powerless affected past generations.

Yousef. N Mr. Thomas ENG4U1 March, 25, 2013 A Women’s life, from a Feminist Approach, “The Painted Door” In the story by Sinclair Ross “The Painted Door” the main character, Anne, represents a weak, unhappy, selfish and insecure woman who is not pleased with her husband’s life choices. Employing the Feminist approach to “The Painted Door” reveals striking aspects that would otherwise be imperceptible.

To conclude Elias Strorm’s wife is a good supporter of her husband as well as Emily Strorm. The role of women does demonstrate bystanders and supporters of their husbands and family member.

The Daddy is always active as the describe the mom as standing there I feel that because the father doesn’t play the stereotypical father role this makes the mother to assume more guilt in the story. Instead of the mom cuddling the child the author wrote “Mommy over his shoulder invoking God until he sent her for towels and gauze if they had it, the Daddy moving quickly and well and his man's mind empty of everything but purpose”. Is this because of her character or the fact that most people don’t know what to do in the situation of a trauma, even if it is their own
