Gender in Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller and Churchill´s Cloud Nine

Gender, unlike the biological differentiation of sex, is a social condition that forms the basis of being a “male” or “female”. The role of patriarchy, as described by (renown feminist) Gerda Lerner, is “the manifestation and institutionalization of male dominance over women and children in the family” (1)....   [tags: patriarchy, father, son]
