Feminism or non feminism

Description

We have been discussing feminism in class. For Critical Response One, I would like for you to select either Steinbeck’s ‘Chrysanthemums’ or Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wall Paper’ and develop a feminist critique. You are welcome to argue that your chosen text presents a feminist argument or is anti-feminist. Your Response should, however, be guided at least one of the central concerns that informs contemporary feminist theory. Remember that your response should be ca. 3-4 pages long, and should take the form of a formal academic essay. You do not need to consult outside secondary texts, but you should provide references to/quotes from your chosen primary text. The Response should be formatted via MLA standards.
