"Eveline" by James Joyce reveals the discrimination of women as described in Marilyn Frye's "Oppression." Frye's article discusses a "doublebind," the restraining nature of society in which a woman must present herself in a certain manner or she will be rebuked. Frye also compares a woman's situation to a birdcage. Women are encaged and not free to present themselves however they wish. If only a single perspective or ''wire" of the cage is studied, women seem unsuppressed. Such is the reason the world does not understand the prejudice.
