Feminism In Ichiyo


Oseki plays an essential role as a female character, demonstrating the status of women in the historical period in which Thirteenth Night was published. I understand that the character Oseki represents the social inequality of women at the time. How can society understand the potential women hold if they are not given the same opportunities as men? was put in Women's destinies and desires were basically given and placed on them. I had no choice but to freely choose my career and pursue it with enthusiasm and intensity. A woman's power is like a vulnerable newborn who can't support herself. During this time, the woman was subject to the same standards that prevented her from making decisions for herself: she was influenced to seek out those with power and money to climb the social class ladder. It's a horrible way of life to live for love because of your status. According to Forbes magazine, "In the last 100 years, men's and women's IQs have increased, but women's IQs have increased at a faster rate." Now you know what you are contributing to. We, humans, were made to complement each other, not to be superior to each other. But a superior person is one who puts aside their personal desires and realizes that they can serve others. In our society, the quality of service for men and women has completely declined, and we live in a society that loves itself. If our selflessness amplifies feminism and racism a little more, it no longer matters.
