In Control Or Not
Women sometimes feel compelled to put up with unwanted male attention. Women have no control over what men say and do. There is nothing women can do to stop men form saying or doing what they want unless women stay away from men altogether. Men will often make comments or violate a woman?s freedom regardless of weather the women are enjoying the attention or not. In the short story ?A Woman On a Roof,? a woman experiences some unwanted male attention while she is sunbathing on her rooftop. Despite her attempts to ward the men off by acting indifferent and seemingly aggravated, they still continue to bother her (735). The woman on the roof has little control over this situation, and thus must ignore the men and put up with their impulsive lack of maturity.
The woman on the roof experiences the impulsive immaturity of three men working on an adjacent rooftop about ?fifty yards away? (734). These men are a good example of how men act the way they want towards women regardless of how their immature behavior is affecting the woman. The three men in this story took the
