Transcript of I WANT A WIFE

I WANT A WIFE hhg hhjgh bjkkgh hello how are you About the author About the essay Motivation behind the essay Historical women Style and References Judy brady Born in 1937 in San Francisco Studied at the University of Iowa where she received her B.F.A. in 1962 She has written articles on such issues as abortion, education, the labor and women's movements for variety of publications.

Brady's work has appeared in periodicals such as the Greenpeace Magazine and The Women's Review of books. Her classic satirical essay "Why I Want a Wife" was first published in the first issue of Ms. Magazine in 1971 She became a free-lance writer during the 1960s Brady's work has appeared in periodicals such as the Greenpeace Magazine and The Women's Review of Books.
Fulfill sexual needs and truthful relationship. ? Who doesn’t wanna a wife In the late 1960's, and early 1970' women were fighting for an equality of rights in every aspect: political, social,and economical.
Women had earned the right to vote, and finally the right to an abortion. While still lesser than men in several aspects, women were covering new ground. This brings light to how women are perceived, speaking as a woman, looking through the eyes of a man.

Brady says that she wants a wife who will work and send her to school so that she would not have to work as hard
while working to become more economically independent. While it is worthy of respect to have a man want to
become more economically independent, it is just as worthy of disrespect that he would expect the woman to work
to support the family by herself during the time it takes to do this. Irony in this situation is that while he wants to better
his family, said husband wants to burden it. A wife is expected to be a slave to her partner's sexual desires; while not always having hers met. Should she not
be sufficient or satisfactory, it is acceptable to find other women to fulfill those desires; however, if the man is not
sufficient or satisfactory, the woman has to deal with it. Basically, a woman is disposable. When a man gets tired
of a woman and the life he has created with her, she must continue to do as she does, while he can move
without a single glance back. She's taking care of the kids and doing everything anyway though, so it should not be
much of a change for her if she is tossed away like the garbage. Based on what Brady describes a wife to be in this essay, is a perfect woman who does everything in loving support
of her husband and children, regardless of how it makes her feel, and where it leaves her in the end. Go on a vacation so she can take care of my her kids Go on a vacation so she can take

Coherence is product of many different factors, which combine to make every paragraph, every sentence, and every phrase contribute to the meaning of the whole piece. Coherence in writing is much more difficult to sustain than coherent speech simply because writers have no nonverbal clues to inform them if their message is clear or not. Therefore, writers must make their patterns of coherence much more explicit and much more carefully planned. Coherence itself is the product of two factors — paragraph unity and sentence cohesion
