In my opinion I think that the persona who wrote the poem, Sylvia Platch,
wanted us to know and to analyze women living in the sociaty of the USA in
the fifties, when women had to take care of their children and husbands,
always with a smile on their faces, very well dressed with a pearl string
and also with a perfect hairstyle. Women had to work hard, they didn't hear
or see, they only accepted things as they were.
Although there are sone stanzas that show feminisim there are others that
show some radical groups that had appeared during history as communism,
nazis, for example "little or nothing, so many of us!, some many of us!...
Nudgers and shovers, in spite of ourselves, our kind multiplies..."

This poem by Sylvia Plath reflects before the 60`s how badly treated women
where in society. She develops the idea of "Joining and Fighting" all
together in order to change their role. Not to be just mothers or wives,
but to start playing a role in every aspect of society and having the same
rights as men.
Sylvia Plath was a feminist who lived in a period in which there were no
recognitions for women and the labour they did.
That`s why we can say that these "Mushrooms" that are joined in order to
spread, represent this group of women that are trying to grow and change
the inequalities for women in society.
