1: It's As Easy As A-B-C | Today we are going to learn about how the Feminist lens is used in the book "Of Mice and Men". First off the feminist lens is basically how are certain people treated such as women, and sometimes men.
2: In the book Of Mice and Men the feminist lens is obvious. A man named Curley and he is married to a woman. Her name? Well she doesn't have one, people call her "Curley's wife. Also Lennie, one of the main characters is treated the same as Curley's wife. Lennie is a fairly big guy, and George the one who Lennie looks up to is so much smaller and weaker.
3: Lennie "I ain't to have nothing to do with you or anything". George will not let him talk to Curley's wife because then he can't tend the rabbits. But Curley's wife talks to him anyway/
4: Curley's wife was curious about what was under the hay that was next to Lennie. It's a pup and it's dead. "George won't let me tend no rabbits now".
5: George obviously has control over Lennie. Lennie won't be able to do anything if he gets in trouble anymore.
6: "If George sees me talkin' to you he'll give me hell. he tol' me so". All that Lennie is thinking about right now is being able to tend the rabbits.
7: Sense Lennie likes petting soft things, Curley's wife said "feel right aroun' there an' see how soft it is". And knowing Lennie's past of petting soft things, he always had killed them
8: So Lennie pets her hair. Lennie now told to let go of her hair, he closes his hand on her hair and will not let go. Lennie is being screamed at to let go, but he won't. " She was still, for Lennie had broken her neck". Lennie now has power over Curley's wife. But she is dead.
9: "No, Lennie. Look down there acrost the river, like you can almost see the place." So as Lennie looks down their as told to do so by George, " George raised the gun steadied it, and he brought the muzzle of it close to the back of Lennie's head. And pulls the trigger". Lennie now laying on the ground with silence. He is dead. George, now having control over Lennie. Does no more.
