In each of the texts we’ve read this session, excluding Persepolis, women were supplemental characters. Historically a women’s place in society was seen as lower than a man, and this was evident throughout the readings. There was a lot of negativity associated with women both obviously and inconspicuous. The women with larger parts were often affected the male in negative way, like Enkidu and Eve. In most of the texts women weren’t even full characters, just briefly introduced, sometimes without even having a name. Men are given central roles vital to the stories.
