Gone With The Wind 3

I know that this book is from a different era but still! The man owns the property but the woman runs/manages it. However, the man takes credit for managing the property. His woman then“praises his cleverness.” Owning property gives men rights and power, but they do not share the reward that only results from the women’s hard work. Women have all the work and responsibility but enjoy the rewards that men decide to grant them. Men expect women to suppress their needs and desires and focus attention on the men. Women are not even allowed to take credit for their own intelligence, bravery, and strength.
