Name: Institution affiliation: Course: Date: Women warriors and implication for gender in the Wonderful Wizard of Oz This essay looks at women warriors little girls as liberators explorers moral heroines along with the implications that such characters have for gender. In the Wonderful wizard of Oz the author uses the mythical structure to present the mythical stories of women warriors. In the story Dorothy is a little girl who devices schemes to gain access to the castle of the wicked witch where she eventually kills her (Baum and Sieben 20-22). Dorothy can be seen acting as a ‘leader ‘of the three despondent friends who are all male. In her journey from departure initiation to return she encounters a number of supernatural and natural opponents as she is threatened by various forces and put to different tests. However with the help of her friends and her common sense’ she is of the role of women and men. The author creates weak men and powerful women. Many protagonists and the rulers in the book are female such as Dorothy who solves her own problem and does not wait for a man to put things right and this makes the book justly feminist (Burger 55). The manner in which the author presents the female characters shows his attitude towards women especially the theme of women suffrage given that the author was dedicated to the establishment of women rights.
