This storyboard does not have a description.
Blanche, Stella's older sister, is sensitive, delicate, promiscuous, and talkative. She acts innocent towards her past and never tells the truth, but says whats "supposed to be true." She does not like realism, but prefers magical, fantasy-like mindset.
How does playwright Tennessee Williams use the character's actions, description, or words to make a strong statement about gender in our society?
"Well, I never cared for wishy-washy people. That was why, when you walked in here last night, I said to myself — "My sister has a married man!"— Of course that was all that I could tell about you (Scene 2)." -Blanche
Blanche can be easily deceived, but she still has common sense. She sees right through Stanley and realizes his "power" of belief of superiority to women results from his manhood. Blanche uses this to her advantage, to get on his good side, and reveals how superiority or the power of manhood can be more than detrimental in some situations.
