Rose in Fences

Is Rose's character an example of feminism or an example of the repressed role of women in society?

Scholars have been divided on Rose's role in the play. Some have seen Rose as the prototypical 1950s housewife, disappearing into her husband and leaving no room for her own self to flourish. Others, however, have seen Rose as occupying a feminist position; she does remain a housewife and mother but only because she makes the choice for herself. No one forces motherhood on her. She admits that when Troy takes pieces of her, it is because she gives those pieces out of her own choice. But then, what other choice does she have?

Study shows gender bias in science is real. Here’s why it matters. | Unofficial Prognosis, Scientific American Blog Network

Study shows gender bias in science is real. Here’s why it matters. | Unofficial Prognosis, Scientific American Blog Network | A Womans' Worth | Scoop.it

In a groundbreaking study published in PNAS last week by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues, that is exactly what was done. On Wednesday, Sean Carroll blogged about and brought to light the research from Yale that had scientists presented with application materials from a student applying for a lab manager position and who intended to go on to graduate school. Half the scientists were given the application with a male name attached, and half were given the exact same application with a female name attached. Results found that the “female” applicants were rated significantly lower than the “males” in competence, hireability, and whether the scientist would be willing to mentor the student.

The Role of Rose in Fences

Rose becomes the strong archetype of the African American woman. She has put her life and soul into Troy, and yet he has sought out the companionship of another (Gantt, 11). He explains the affair as a way to ignore the responsibilities of his failed life, if at least for a while. This aggravates Rose even more, since he has never taken her feelings, wants or needs into consideration. Troy continues to be married to Rose, but still sees Alberta with Rose’s knowledge of the situation. Rose even takes the call from the hospital when Alberta dies while giving birth. The strength of Rose does not reach its apex until Troy brings home his daughter. He asks Rose to help him raise her. Rose’s response gives the audience the berth of her strength. In two lines, she puts the future in place, “From right now…this child got a mother. But you is a womanless man.” (Wilson, 530) The strength of not blaming the child is apparent, and it becomes known that this child will have as good a life as Rose can give her with no animosity or jealousy of the creation of the child. Troy, on the other hand, is shown that he will not only have the responsibility of the child, but will continue to have the responsibility of Rose, Lyons, and Cory with nothing in return
