Golding has chosen to use only boys as it is them we often associate as being drawn into the violence and having an aggressive nature. We naturally associate men and boys as testosterone creatures, using chants such as ‘kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood!’ to urge them on, where as women are nurturing, loving and rational. This seems that it is the gender that affects the conflict and as traditions followed then, it was the men that ran society and made the decisions for women.
O’Neil was hand-selected by a woman senator, because she was pretty and feminine and didn’t look like a stereotypical lesbian. O’Neil eagerly accepted the invitation, not because she wanted to be a “poster child” for women’s rights, but because she simply wanted to get training experience like the men where she worked so she could advance at her job. Men that she went to school with, were promoted ahead of her, strictly because they had training experience that she was forbid to participate in because she was told, “there are no female bathrooms on our ships.” To get her experience O’Neil had to make it through the grueling training called “hell week” where more than half of the candidates drop out because they don’t have the mental and physical strength. Throughout her training, O’Neil continuously demands that she be held to the same level of standards as the male trainees, but is constantly held to lower
She hated the white blood that was in her, and almost paralleled Malcolm’s near reverse - racist attitude as he grew up “Thinking about it now, I feel definitely that just as my father favored me for being lighter than the other children, my mother gave me more hell for the same reason. She was very light herself but she favored the ones who were darker” (8). Throughout the autobiography, Malcolm continued this search for a strong identity and power. This is one of the reasons the Nation of Islam religion was so appealing to him. This religion gave the black race an innate sense of superiority and power, which could not be stripped away by the white man.

Although both Allie and Bud struggle with their parents’ disapproval of class difference, Allie is more successful in overcoming the pressure from her parents due to her stubbornness, passion, and her mother’s ultimate understanding.

This is the turning point or Volta of the poem. However, the writer wants to revive her strength by telling her that even if she has to face bombers, she will not drop her gin and scuttle to the cellar but she will fearlessly look into their eyes. The glass of gin for her stands for the joy of life that she will never drop or lose. Even if she is bombarded by problems of life, she will emerge a winner. Only faith can move mountains- this biblical phrase is applicable to her as although she is tired and upset, she is as sturdy as mahogany wood.
The simple fact that they are women puts them in a position where they are at the will, and mercy of their authoritative male figures. The Rover introduces us to one of the most gender bias, gender oppressive, sexually objectifying, patriarchal, and stereotypical group of men ever. Yet with all these forces against them, the female characters in The Rover managed to get their way, overcoming the great odds against them. Florinda, Hellena, and have been the victims of the very masculine and primitive patriarchy that surrounds them. Don Pedro is the prime example of this masculine and primitive patriarchy.
