Women tend to include their struggles and experiences with being a woman in their work.

- Maxine Hong Kingston’s story “No Name Woman” can certainly be considered a tale about gender inequality. There are numerous ways that Kingston suggests and incorporates gender discrimination into her story. For example, Kingston makes it clear how sons are celebrated more than daughters in traditional Chinese society. While sons were acclaimed because they could pass on the family name, daughters were commonly given away by their parents. Kingston makes this notion clear in her sentence, “it was probably a girl; there is some hope of forgiveness for boys,” regarding the “no name woman’s” newborn child (Kingston 4)....   [tags: Gender, Woman, Maxine Hong Kingston]

Analysis Of The Poem ' Old Maids ' By Sandra Cisneros

Ruled by patriarchy, it was hard for most of these women to do more than just be a stay at home wife. In some of the stories we have read, the women were portrayed as submissive, obedient, with no voice. Women have struggled to break out of this mold and find a voice for themselves. However, some managed to break out of these expectations and standards. Women and men have had to fulfill different set standards before anyone had stepped foot outside the womb....   [tags: Marriage, Woman, Wedding, Gender]

The Old Maid - My Delia Dilemma

- The Old Maid  - My Delia Dilemma      In my first reading of The Old Maid, I found it hard to dissect the character of Delia.  Edith Wharton made me work hard to figure Delia out by not spelling her out directly, but bringing her on gradually.  After subsequent readings however, I saw this story as a sort of coming of age story about Delia Lovell and not about an old maid. Although the title is surely meant to reflect our feelings for the character of Charlotte, whom it seemed was destined to become an old maid in the eyes of Delia, Wharton uses the character of Charlotte as does Delia, to tell a story of a woman who gets a second chance and does everything in her power not to mess it up...   [tags: Old Maid Essays]

The Definition Of Old Age

- The definition of old age is not one that is universal. In some cultures, 50 is not considered old, but for some 40 is deemed old. This fluid definition is often created by an appearance. The gray hairs and wrinkly face are enough within some cultures to write someone off as old. In other cultures a person isn’t labeled old until they have hit a certain age milestone, i.e. becoming 60 or 65. The life span of people within that culture also influences when someone begins being “old.” If the life span within that society or culture goes to 120 then someone who is only 40 would be seen to have only lived one-third of their life and not be so old, while in a society or culture where the life spa...   [tags: Geriatrics, Old age, Ageing, Gerontology]
