Society's Subliminal and Deliberate Coercion of Women's Dependence on Men
Abstract
This delves into the historical and societal coercion that has perpetuated women’s dependence on men. Examining literary examples like “The Yellow Wallpaper” and “The Cure,” it exposes oppressive actions and societal expectations. The paper extends to modern media, highlighting biases in healthcare, expectations on single mothers, and evolving portrayals of women’s independence in most recent shows like “The Witcher.”
