“Yellow Wallpaper" the wallpaper becomes oppressive just like her husband and brother John (the husband) treated her like a child, even keeping her locked in the nursery, to the point that she has a secret journal she keeps in the room because it is her only escape; she is afraid of him because she always questions him but not out loud to him her husband has a role in her life as a dominant because of the time period - he has the right to control her body paper in the story has two meanings: it come to life and is frustrating with the wallpaper it is her relief with the notebook Jane - protagonist when Jane asks for simple things like social interaction he shoots her down because he thinks he knows whats best and she must comply, especially because he is a doctor however, this was before mental issues were discovered so he was doing what he thought was right he shuts her in a room that seems crazy in itself, without her say, so how do you expect her to get better? post-paurdum depression: after child birth when feelings of disconnect, inadequacy, etc sets in mostly for the mother but sometimes also for the child Jane has feelings for this wallpaper and when she tries to tell people about it it becomes dismissed because her husband has not felt the same way when she believes the wallpaper comes to life we almost feel sad for her and it is very oppressive — the woman in the wallpaper Feminism - equality between the sexes
