Which ultimately lead the women to hide critical evidence from the men because they wouldn’t understand anyways. The setting, characters, and clues all contribute to the theme of gender roles of men and women in this short story. A big contributor of the theme of “A Jury of her Peers” is the setting in which the story takes place. Being that the story takes place in the early nineteen hundreds, the women are not seen as helpful. The women are kept in their domain, the kitchen, throughout the entire story because that is where men believed the women should be.
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.

So in both stories without these to influences neither Montag nor Wall-e would have realized something was wrong. Secondly we see the consequences of technology, in Montag society everyone stops socializing, it’s about the “family” which is the television shows. Their whole society is wrapped around the technology; the people around you barely notice each other. All that really matter to them is fun, a life doesn’t matter. This is shown to us very clearly when Clarisse gets killed by a reckless driver and Montag’s wife just ignores it, telling Montag casually about her death like it doesn’t matter at all.
In Dr No, women play very little importance to the narrative and are simply represented as either sex objects or dominated by men in the workforce such as Miss Taro or Miss Honeypenny as the secretaries. However in Aliens, the female characters are strong and in many ways dominant over the men in the film such as Vasquez who is the leader of the marine, and Ripley who directed the whole battle while Gorman was too nervous and afraid of Aliens. These differences reflect the views society had regarding the roles of women at the times the films were made. 2. What role does the context in which Ripley is travelling (i.e.
1st. New York: William Morrow, 2002. This mother/wife/former full time career woman tells of how her attempt at co-parenting did not work out because she married a man whose work hours "exponentially increased", giving her no choice but to decrease hers until they were no more to avoid their daughter from becoming "functionally orphaned". She writes of how she finds herself in a position much resembling that of her mother's, with a husband coming home in time for dinner, and she relates the story of meeting her own husband.

HBO most recent show Westworld exposes the power struggle between robots and humans, while questioning the ethics and the boundaries of that relation. Westworld is a western theme park filled with lifelike robots, where humans pay a large sum of money to visit it. The “hosts”, as they are called, are only there to fulfil any and all the desires of the “newcomers”, who can’t be hurt or killed.
