... June Cleaver Women and Gender in Postwar America, 1945-1960 Introduction The roles for American women significantly changed after World War II. Studies on women roles in the society in the post World War II era have generally inclined to the view that women activism never took a backstage. Women roles have been restricted to domesticity, suburbanization, and political complacency. In light of this interpretation, Joanne Meyorowitz with her contributors sets out to revisit the impact that women made in their capacities as mothers, activists, workers, and unionists. This paper explores women experiences and their contributions in the post-war American society by reviewing I Wanted the Whole World to...

... to the Bible, God sent Adam and Eve, of two different sexes, to the earth for procreation. According to Hindu mythology also the first human beings that were sent down were Manu and Shatarupa, again of two different sexes. The purpose in both cases was procreation because this can happen only with the union between the opposite sexes. Same sex marriages are condemned the world over by every religion as it goes against the law of nature. While spiritualism directs to look at every individual as a soul and not to look at the external form and shape, hence beyond gender, but same sex marriages create social distortions and challenge the very institution of marriage.

She illustrates how women interact with their societies or communities in general. The foundation for many of her essays and novels is showing how women feel (and behave) in a patriarchal world (“Virginia Woolf”, np). By using internal dialogue and stream-of-consciousness techniques to exemplify her character’s points-of-view, she makes ordinary events seem extraordinary, thus exploiting the reader’s empathy. While these views may not be considered strictly feminine, they do depict the trivial aspects of her everyday life as she perceived them. ...
