The treatment of women is no different in John Steinbeck 's 1947 novel The Pearl. Women were often treated poorly by men because they were seen as weaker beings. In The Pearl, Steinbeck explores the traditional role of women in the household, and also exemplifies their strength in character even through oppression by men....   [tags: Gender role, Gender, John Steinbeck, Woman]
