Storyboard Text

  • I wish you'd stop taking it for granted that I'm in something I want to get out of. Stella is a well educated and sensitive woman brought up as a woman. She and her sister stick up for each other.
  • A Streetcar Named Desire
  • How does Tennesse Williams incorporate gender roles in society through his playwriting?
  • Don't holler at me like that.
  • Stanley displays rude and disrespectful behavior playfully initially toward Stella to which Stella was displeased.
  • Hey, there! Stella, baby!
  • I don't like to be treated like a trophy.
  • Stella's actions towards Stanley's hollering portrays her background and how she was raised as an educated woman in a respected household. Stanley's background basically represented how he was not taught how to treat women properly.
  • I like being forward about my feelings, and feeling powerful.
  • You don't know Blanche as a child. Nobody, nobody was tender and trusting as she was.
  • Oh she's right!
  • Wow! True!
  • We have to stick up for each other and be supportive during rough times.
  • Your right, women have to bring out their inner strenght to let men know that they cannot control us.
  • Gender roles are prevelent in society. In a Streetcar Named Desire Stella is offended by Stanley's rude catcalling and sticks up for Blanche when others were putting her down. This is like life because genders have specific characteristics and preconceived notions about them, and they use the notions to serve their roles in society.
