My Brilliant Career

Miles Franklin English 1106-001 3 July 2012 Sybylla Melvyn argues that as a woman she has few options in life sentence, whereas, workforce have many more possibilities. I chose this topic because I am a woman who feels strongly that woman should have the same advantages in life as men. Also, there are still many countries today that do not treat woman and men the same which in my opinion is precise grave. In todays modern world most would agree that men and woman have equal rights when it comes to career choices.Over the years society has certain and encouraged woman to exit professionals in the work place. Long were the days when woman were considered only worthy for child bearing. Unfortunately, many years ago things were not as easy for woman who dreamt of a fulfilling career. The novel, My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin explores the journey of a young woman passionate to become something more than a wife.However, because woman had few options in career than men during th is time, they are often forced to become wives, or caregivers while their deepest ambitions were left unachieved. 1.
