I am trying to write an essay about gender stereotypes and how this short story deviates from that “norm”. The notion of the submissive housewife . Is that even a stereotype anymore? I was never given a clear idea of the role women “supposedly” fill because no one is retarded enough to think that. I dislike writing about it because I feel that is makes out of date assumptions about society’s regard for women. Ok so when this was published it was so shocking that it was banned. But that was a long time ago and to think that the same ideas regarding women are the cultural norm than you are living under a rock. So there’s my rant.
