This story written during the women’s suffrage movement was in progress. Because of what was happening in the world; her writing discretely shows how women struggled. This is not as clear point as “Their Eyes Were Watching God” because Janie says what she wants were the narrator in “The Yellow Wallpaper” never truly says what she wants or feels. By the end how she has gone crazy and can’t contain herself anymore is a lot like how the suffrage movement probably got started. All it would take is one woman to finally stop suppressing her feelings and demand more freedom in society.
She deems the misfortune of herself and the women in her family on 'fate' and 'bad destiny', however I believe there were real concrete factors and choices that contributed to the depressing lives of these women. One of these factors was the cultural belief in early marriage, which negatively affected Ning Lao Tai Tai, her daughter Mantze, and her sister Yintze. Other factors included the plagues of opium addiction and incurable diseases which also adversely haunted Ning's family.

Female bodies, most especially have become subjects to change. As bodies become the notion of changes, women are continuously being stigmatized and judged which leads to greater dissatisfaction with their body, shape and weight. Most women and young girls in our civilization are dissatisfied with the way they look and described ideal figures as what they see in television or magazines.

Since depression rates are rapidly increasing and leading to dangerous outcomes like suicide or eating disorders, research and assistance are needed to address the psychological distress caused by our culture that leads to such high depression rates in women. The purpose of this paper is to review evidence that supports the hypothesis that self-objectification plays a major role in the increasing rates of depression for women. Since depression is linked to self-objectification, it is important to explore the scope of depression in Western societies, how and when it arises, how it differs between females and males, and its relationship to body dissatisfaction.
