Analyze the construction and/or interrogation of gender roles in Sandra Cisneros’s The House on Mango Street.
Prompt: Analyze the construction and/or interrogation of gender roles in Sandra Cisneros’s The House on Mango Street. For instance, in what ways do these texts address the virgin/whore dichotomy. In what ways are female characters granted power, in what ways do they claim power, and in what ways is empowerment denied them?. (Power here might be defined as control and agency over the actions or situation of oneself or others). What kinds of pressures or dynamics maintain these dichotomous roles for female characters and what (if anything) disrupts them? How does the denial or attainment of power by female figures affect male characters? Is the issue of gender inequality ever resolved in the novels?
