When traumatic situations occur, people cope in different ways depending on who they are. In the short story “Scars and Scales” by Sarah Rakel Orton, there are two versions of how the characters grieve the loss of their mom. In referring to scars, the title suggests how females are able to cope mentally, whereas scales represent how males cope physically. Even though women can help others deal with disturbing conditions, men are better at curing themselves due to less mental strain and have the ability to move on quicker. During a time of sorry, the main difference between male and females is that females feel it is their responsibility to become the leader of the situation and take care of the people around them.
Death is the predestined destination for all creations in this entire world, whether they are satisfied or not. I liked the part when Maher is writing about her father and added, “that does not mean that he did not love them or care for them” (Maher 1). I respect the person when respects others and appear that, and writing a sentence such as the previous one, shows a great estimation for her father. On the other hand, I wondered why Maher did not have a discussion with her father about this word! Her father has an opinion behind calling her: girl and she have another opinion since this word angered her.
As his wife, Jenna made all his meals and was guillted into wanting to make a happy marriage even though she was not happy at all.

Ehrenreich is correct in her assertion that women are too ladylike and have a lot to learn from men. Being “nice” and ladylike makes a woman socially disadvantaged. In our personal lives, we tend to talk a lot in our conversations with men to keep discussions going lively. The men are only inputting a few words; a woman is doing all the work. In these conversations, we give excessive information, making us too loose.
and this is shown on the essay when she writes this ”If, by chance , I find another person more suitable as a wife than the wife I already have, I want the liberty to replace my present wife with another one” Really, is sad but is the truth, men do think women’s are objects they can’t take and leave when they want and demand things and expect to received without giving. As I read the essay it was stupid to see that they didn’t realize that all the wife’s duties could also be done by men, like cleaning, working, taking care of the kids, and of course pleasing their wife’s when she
Men can be as good at parenting as women. Parenting is a partnership, I agree but there are those who strongly agree that a woman makes the better parent. I am of the view however that “Men can be and is as good at parenting as women”. I will provide factual evidence that Men are as good at parenting as women. A father provides a sense of stability for his child.
What a wife it would be When a reader first looks at Brady’s essay one might think it was written by a man. However after reading the first paragraph the reader will realize that the author is indeed a woman and may be confused as to why the title is “Why I Want A Wife”. Brady gives a reasonable argument as to the unequal views on the roles of the husband and wife. By listing the many examples of a wife’s responsibilities, she hopes to sway a woman or man’s feelings and encourages them to perhaps modify the usual tradition of marriage and companionship. The audience she has chosen would most likely be women or married couples.
The third reason is that a wife listens to her husband but has no complaints about her duties. She will listen to her husband when he feels the need to explain a rather difficult point or will type his papers when he has written them. The fourth reason is that a wife can take care of her husband social life. When she goes out with her husband’s friends, she will do the babysitting arrangements or when he invites his friends to come over his house, she will take care of the needs of his guests to make sure that they are comfortable. The fifth reason is that a wife can satisfy her husband sexual needs.
It has been said that work can cause a lot of stress on everyone, what do you expect when both men and women are working, raising a family and going to school. In previous generations this was not an issue fathers were known as the bread winners and the mothers stayed home to raise the children and do the house work, but that was before the economy got so bad and a lot of people needed two incomes just to make ends meet. Now both mothers and fathers have to work to provide for their family and this has caused the children to suffer, it is a known fact that younger children need their parent(s) around a lot between birth and around age 5 when they start school, so that the parents can care for them and give them the love and support that they need at such a young age. In recent years women have started to rethink when they should have children only because if they have children they are limited to what they can do both at home and work. If they are college students or even if they just want to continue their education or even pursue a new career they would find it very difficult, having a family or even children is difficult.
Jorjie Ives English Comp II Professor Springs March 1, 2011 In The Rover, women are slaves whose sole purpose is to obey, and serve men. Yet finding a way to ultimately get there guy. Since the beginning of the play, women have been the victim of the very masculine and primitive patriarchy that surrounds them. Oppressed by their male counterparts, these women are subjected to arranged marriages, where they are told who and how to love. 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.
