She tends to look for other male ranchers. But Curley, her husband does not recognize her as a person but more like a sexual object, Candy said that “he’s keepin’ that hand soft for his wife” this shows us Curley uses he wife as a trophy and she was never given a name in the novella, she is only treated as a possession of Curley and how no one else on the ranch wanted to get to know her but avoid her instead. We first set eyes on Curley’s wife in the bunk house, when she pretends to be looking for Curley the impression of Curley’s wife being flirtatious is emphasized as she dresses inappropriately for a women married to the boss’s son “she had full, rouged lips and wide spaced eyes, her fingernails are red and her hair hung in little rolled clusters, like sausages” which in my opinion red shows sign of danger besides from this, she both talk and acts playfully and flirtatiously in front of other ranchers “she said playfully”. Candy’s description of Curley’s wife seems accurate after her first appearance in the novel. In this situation George notices this and tries to avoid having conversation with her, using short answers like “Well he ain’t now.” This is because he thinks Curley’s wife is“Jail bait” before getting to know Curley’s wife and the reason why she is this way.

In this vignette Rafela is a girl, whom also married young, her husband keeps her locked in their apartment because she is to pretty, to the point where he thinks she will be stolen away from him because of her beauty. Again the dominant is Rafela’s husband and Rafela herself is the submissive. She just like Sally is stuck with an obsessive abusive man, that no matter what she can’t leave him because she has nowhere else to go. I disagreed with the way Sandra Ciserno wrote the gender role parts of the book.
