Gilman, Gender inequality Blog#2

Gilman spoke about gender inequality. Women were looked as minority and that their only purpose in life was to stay at home be caregivers, a house wives, etc. She blamed all of this to the economic arrangements and division of labor happening at the time in the american society. Men were superior and that was society’s point of view. She believed this brought women down into thinking that’s all they’re worth for. I couldn’t help to think how much this still is in effect now, perhaps not as strong as it was before but the idea still there. And some for reason this music video by Kimbra “settle down” came into my head in class. The video pretty much describes the message society gives to little girls into thinking what growing up is all about, when it reality it’s nothing like that at all.
