Feminist criticism (gender role)
Feminine remorse is a good thing because its purpose is to understand men's literature that women are shown in various ways to their men who help show how we live and see many things in black and white because boys are raised and they join the sport that can be considered violent like football or play violent games that shape their mind and body but this feminine churner opens our eyes. When we look at both sides and understand the differences in how women in the youth say, "you need to

superheroes movies, from recent studies, we have noticed that the media is consciously or not, spreading words concerning gender inequality between males and females in this society. First, women are underrepresented, and hyper-sexualized. Talking about sexuality, we are seeing on television, magazines women half naked, pretending to be helpless, or in need of something, and men around the model or actor holding her strongly like he is her protector. Basically, the media is supporting the idea that woman major role is more likely to search for romance, and attention. Hence, women tend to have the insignificant helpless maiden roles to represent. As I said above, women are underrepresented; the way

The gender role and lessons played in Lanval.
In stories and literatures, we tend to always see the male characters as the heroes. They are always in charge, they always come to the rescue whenever something is wrong, no matter what the situation is, they are always the hero of the day. In Lanval by Marie De France, the role completely switched, and a woman is the hero. Aside from dismantling gender stereotypes, Marie De France also introduced temptation motif, love/loyalty, abuse of power and manipulation in her story.
Lanval known for his “valour, generosity, beauty, and prowess” (De France 73) was one of King Arthur’s knights and was always overlooked. It all

My Father’s Sadness by Shirley Lim is a poem that uses figurative language, but also literary elements to demonstrate gender roles. Lim uses the literary elements, such as tone and theme in the poem. In the short story, the author uses tone to show the interaction of the feelings the character has on the father dying. Lim has also used the literary element theme to give a clear message that responsibilities come first. Demonstrating the role of a man and his responsibilities represent the gender roles.

of society's gender stereotypes. It provides the examples of what we learned in chapter one that gender and sex are not interchangeable, they have very distinct meanings. “Sex is based on Biology assigned at birth and gender is socially constructed and expressed. It includes one’s internal sense of self as a woman, man, or neither (gender identity), the external communication of one’s gender identity through clothing, hairstyles, behavior, and voice (gender expression), as well as the cultural expectations assigned to one’s sex (gender role). For many people, sex and gender are consistent; most children assigned male at birth eventually identify as men and most assigned female eventually

Gender refers to socially learned traits, behavior, and attitudes associated with expected of, men and woman (Farley 189). These so called learned traits are more often known as gender roles, which can be defined as roles that society expects people tp play, according to their sex ( Farley 189). Each gender has a particular and specific role that they are expected to play and can take a variety of different forms. For example gender roles are found in the workplace, at school, and at the home. Men and woman are expected to fulfill certain job occupations and act a certain way. The men are expected to have a position of superiority over woman, such as being managers and doctors. A man who

outside appearance we can see. We cannot focus just on physical characteristics. Physical characteristics play a role in the “gender determination is an everyday interaction” (Westbrook and Schilt 319). Interacting with people can form a perspective on information on their specific gender identity. Gender integrated spaces are more likely to use identity- based criteria, while gender-segregated spaces, likely the sexual spaces we have previously examined. For instance, designated bathrooms for all genders.

Gender identity is the base that forms individuals' perceptions about their role in society. Australia, as a liberal democratic nation ensures equality of opportunity for all members of the society, regardless of their gender (Study Guide 1007AMC 1999). However, it could be argued that gender based inequalities still exist in the Australian contemporary society. In order to investigate gender discrimination, the terms sexism and feminism will be defined. Secondly, gender inequalities will be discussed according to the Faucauldian feminist Sandra Lee Barkty, Simon French and R.W. Connell. Finally, statistical information will provide further evidence in relation to female discrimination.In

sexes (The British Library, 2018). Women began to fight for the right to vote, education, health, and many other opportunities.

Nowadays, women are proved to perform better in education, however, men are receiving a higher pay in the workplace.

gender in biology. Women are therefore those with female biology and feminine qualities. Wittig desires the destruction of this binary and claims that, “for what makes a woman is a specific social relation to a man” (108). It is impossible to be a woman if one is not heterosexual because the role of a woman is constructed by the patriarchy in relation to males comparative to a master-slave relationship.
Like Wittig’s argument that lesbians are not women, Lugones argues that black women are not women. This notion is rooted in colonialism in which gender originated as a social construction. For Lugones, only white women are ‘allowed’ to possess gender while black women are deemed ‘sex’ and

Eliza into an ideal lady. These two narratives show how unrealistic and even unnatural the expectations that society often has for women are. Pygmalion's perfect woman can only be attained with an artificial construct, a sculpture. Similarly, the ideal noble lady of British society in the world of Shaw's play is a kind of fake, only a role that Eliza must learn to play. Pygmalion can thus be seen as showing how oppressive unrealistic ideals of femininity can be: to attain these ideals, Eliza has to be coached, disciplined, and taught. She has to pretend to be someone other than who she really is. The play further explores gender roles with its other female characters. As it is set in the early

entire society at risk of collapse. Also, the wellbeing of children is directly related to the overall welfare of their mothers. Therefore, any form of discrimination that might cause psychological stress in women also invariably compromises the wellbeing of children.
Moreover, gender inequality results in strained and unhappy marriages which eventually affect how children are raised. In a society where women are discriminated against, their role in the household is limited to making decisions on issues concerning the home such as cooking and home décor (Kabeer 193). In external matters such as family income and investments, the decision-making process is mostly left to the husband. This

heavily with the traditional male role in fairy-tales.
The gender dynamics of The Witches are unconventional in the sense that the young boy contradicts the perception of children in fairy-tales – cheeky, greedy, magic bean buying and lie-telling little creatures. If anything, the boy is a personification of the perfect grandson – he is clever, respectful, and utterly besotted with his Grandmamma: “I gazed up at my grandmother, who sat there like some ancient queen on her throne” (Dahl 14). The honest
nature of the young boy conflicts with the common thread in fairy-tales of a naughty children in need of discipline. Moreover, the idea of such an impressionable male character, being central to

desires to achieve throughout the play. And it is most predominant with the female characters. In Twelfth Night, Shakespeare demonstrates through comical satire and gender role reversal how characters of different perceived classes act in order to expose the unjust power structure in their own society.
Twelfth Night begins with a comical take on the gender role reversal of Lady Viola. Lady Viola disguises herself as a eunuch to travel independently in the society without a male support. Since she also wanted to serve Duke Orsino who had all male servants, she had to disguise herself as a man. She states to the captain “Oh, that I served that lady And might not be delivered to the world, Till I had

that young people are confronted with on a regular basis impacting their perception of self.
In addition, Gender expectations amongst young people challenge aspects of self-identity. (“Gender identity & Roles | Feminine Traits & sterotypes,”2018) states that a gender role is a social role that includes a range of actions and behaviours that are considered adequate based on their realistic sex. In conjunction, Disney Princesses are depicted to teach lessons that could hypothetically harm a young girls self- identity (Jonney217, 2011). With this intention recognized, fairy tales, as an example Cinderella, express messages to young children that have significant meanings. The story teaches

by nature. An individual gender role is molded through socialization. Individuals learn the ways, traditions, norms, and rules of getting along with others. A persons environment has a big influence on the roles deemed accurately for men and women. In "A Rose for Emily," we see the effects of socially given gender roles for a women along with the same social perception upon the male adult in the poem "My Papa's Waltz."Both show images of gender roles in their respective ways.For many generations status has been the envy and the demise of many people. William Faulkner intriguingly depicts status, society, and the role of women in his short fiction "A Rose for Emily." He implies status causes

Nature vs Nurture: The Dichotomy of Gender Roles
The belief that gender roles are inherently biological is a cultural fallacy, which can lead to an inability to effectively communicate when we do not assess each individual’s personality. Research of this topic is necessary in order to learn how to completely understand how to communicate. When trying to communicate with an individual there are more variables than simply gender that need to be assessed. However, there are many ways that society implies that this is not necessary. While human biology dictates whatever sex we are, the way that we are raised is what ultimately determines how masculine or feminine a person acts or feels.

During the same time the movie, The Shining, was released The United States was experiencing a revolutionary faction: The Women’s Liberation Movement. During this time, gender roles and expectations were changing. Like many debated and controversial topics, the argument of women’s liberation manifested itself in different types of media. The Shining is a good example of this because the film addresses many social issues, one being gender and family role expectations. As parents, it is Jack and Wendy’s (Shelley Duvall) responsibility to take care of their son, Danny (Danny Lloyd). In the movie, Jack

weakened the gender-stereotypical roles seen in Jo and Laurie's relationship, they both no longer have expectations on how a female or male should act based off their sex.
In her novel My Antonia, Cather has distinct gender roles within her female characters. Most of Cather's female characters tended to play a not so feminine role, they had great
independence for they had jobs and raised families. Willa Cather herself could have very well been a upcoming feminist in her time since she overcame the stereotypes of women and placed them in positions of power in her novel. Not only did Cather make her main character Antonia reject society's gender rules but she also made all the other women have
