gender roles

Rich addresses women in order to raise awareness on female identity and
gender roles. The title makes reference to the role women play or played in
society by suggesting that the role of the daughter in law only exists by
marrying a man, that is, through heterosexual marriage. She also uses
metaphors and allusions to depict how the "thinking woman" goes through a
physical process of deformation since society hinders her from defining her
own identity and freeing her boundaries. The she in the poem is confined to
the house, she does not have a language of her own and so she prefers to
act rather than to use a male language whose "words are not her own".
