These are six readings, most are short stories that either discuss husbands and wives or deal in some way with men and women. I will post separate comments for each for you to respond to.

In several days, I will give you your next essay assignment which will ask you to mention whether or not the writer is showing bias for or against his or her own gender in all six of the readings and a film that I will send you.

Note: most of the commercials you were asked to see were decidedly biased against men. These readings are varied and different (maybe).

1) An essay by Judy Syfers called “Why I Want a Wife”

2) A very short story called “The Story of an Hour”:

Remember: I will be posting questions for discussion on each of these, as if we were having a class discussion. The reading is like having homework.
