Do you believe that our culture has changed so significantly in its attitudes toward women that Wolf’s arguments have lost their relevance? Write an essay arguing why or why not?
In her writing, Wolf had been a witness to a discriminatory trend which was glorified and normalized. During her time, women had no place and as she says, they were limited and relegated to household or subsistence chores. Men took first place in everything and were considered the heads of families as well as the bread-winners. They were accorded the respect they deserved and women were present at their pleasure. Regardless of class, women were considered inferior beings. Looking at how life is and how it has changed, one can be inclined to say that women’s lives are better or that their lives have improved and been made more comfortable or equal to that of men’s.
