A Street Car Named Desire Storyboard
This storyboard does not have a description.
"Stella comes out on the first floor landing, a gentle young woman, about twenty-five, and of a background obviously quite different from her husband's" (Williams, 14)
Stella: "So we'll go to one of the little places in the Quarter afterwards and you'd better give me some money." (Williams, 32)
In Scene two of "A Street Car Named Desire" this part of the play was a key moment when it comes to gender commentary. It is a gender commentary because Stella told Stanley she was going out for the night and she just insisted that he give her money to go out. The author is implying through stellas actions that she feels the need to depend on Stanley for financial support. In relation to the gender roles in society, some women today feel that the man is supposed to support the house financially and in other ways as well.
Stella:"In the· first place, when men are drinking and playing poker anything can happen. It's always a powder-keg. He didn't know what he was doing. • • • He was as good as a lamb when I came back and he's really very, very ashamed of himself. "
This was another key moment as well in a street car named desire because in this part of the play Stanley has hit Stella. Stella then takes up for Stanley by basiclly saying its okay and it was bound to happen. She is also implying that "men wll be men" and it will continue to happen. Stella's actions at this moment also speaks alot bout society being that some women truly believe that it is acceptable for men to act that way
Overall, the actions, words, and behavior of Stella all portray a statement about gender roles in the book as well as today's society. This is like real life because some to mostly all women strongly depend on men when it comes to their lives. Some women depend on the men to be the strong one, the stable one, and basically the backbone to hold them up in life.
