this poem deals with women in 19 century in the American and European communities .the scope upon women"s right.
It was an age when there is a sharp differentiation between men and women .men are thought they have natures suited to the public world while women thought they are private .
men are powerful ,brave ,active ,logical, dependence ,rational and ambitious . while women are weak ,timid,passive ,illogical,independence ,emotional ,and content .
European and American women in 19 century lived in gender inequality .Bogan tried through this poem to reform the perspective about women"s rights.
if we look to women "s right in employment.women are rejected because that opinion ,they are content passive and lazy.In the lower class women were working in only as servants and as factory workers they worked in home ,any serious study of ant subject was seen as harmful to family unless the serious study deals with social and religious issues.
