Stella is a 25 year old. She is married to Stanley who she shares a violent relationship with but can not admit that to herself or anyone else.

In A streetcar Named Desire, Williams uses these examples of character's commentary to show that women are looked down upon by men and because of this they feel vulnerable and will do anything for them.

They do this because in our society people are so determined to have "perfect relationships" they do not want anyone to see the flaws and violence that actually take place in their relationships.
