TENANTS & FEMINIST CRITICISM
Jefferies is a photographer who loves his job and is willing to put himself in dangers way to get a perfect photo. His view on women changes throughout he story, at first he feels like Lisa is too good for him and thinks women are not a necessity but a want. Towards the end of the story he realizes that he is enough for Lisa and that having her around would be good for his lifestyle because she is as adventurous as him.
Lisa is an adventurous soul and a hopeless romantic. Her view on men is that they are equal to women. She manages to change L.B. Jefferies opinion on women and makes him realize that his lifestyle is suited for her character.
Thorwald is a crappy excuse of a man who sees women not as a delicate human who is a part of your life but as a body that belongs to men. He murders his wife and dumps her in the river showing that not only is he heartless and crazy but he also does no value women what so ever.
Feminism Today & in the 1950's
1950's: In the 1950's, feminism involved employment, reproductive rights, and feminist literature. Women in the 1950's stepped up to the plate and took over many jobs that had previously been worked by men. This changed women's social status completely. Females went from being depicted as stay at home moms and maids to a person who could not only provide for their family but also complete all the duties that arise at home.
Now/1950's: Feminism in the 1950's was more about proving that women did have the mental and physical strength to complete the same task that men were performing as to where now feminism has turned into a tool used by women who have built up hatred for men and use a way to express it.
