How does the author use the character of the nurse to develop the social issue of gender inequality? the nurse’s willingness to take care of nora when nora was little demonstrates a woman’s ability to do difficult work. the nurse’s need to give up a child in order to have a job demonstrates a woman’s inability to support herself. the fact that the nurse’s child wrote to her as a young girl and as an adult demonstrates a woman’s ability to keep friends forever. the nurse’s assurance to nora that her children ask for her often demonstrates women’s role in health care.
the woman's ability to do hard work is by far the best answer.
The correct answer is B. The nurse’s need to give up a child in order to have a job demonstrates a woman’s inability to support herself.
Gender inequality occurs when women do not have the same benefits, rights. or access to opportunities than men. Also, this occurs if women are considered inferior due to biased social or cultural ideas.
This phenomenon occurs in the passage from A Doll's House because the nurse is forced to abandon her child to have a job "how could you have the heart to put your own child out among strangers? Nurse: I was obliged to, if I wanted to be little Nora's Nurse." This shows women needed to choose between taking care of their children and having a job, which did not likely occur with men. Also, the fact this happened shows women could not support themselves and be independent except at a high price. Thus, in the passage, the author develops the social issue of gender inequality as "The nurse’s need to give up a child in order to have a job demonstrates a woman’s inability to support herself."
