The novel seems to be far away from what can be considered as being a stereotype. Women are not treated as they used to be treated in previous times. They are simply not just expected to survive through their days while doing the daily routine task, but are also expected to enjoy. As per the book being referred to it can be stated that the women have not been considered as objects. In fact, the main narrator is a female (Sacks, 65). Also, Jess and her sister keep arguing all the time, regularly ask several questions from their parents regarding their authority and keep listening to music of the genre pop as well.
Apart from this, Elise, Jess’s sister is pregnant and she has not made much fuss about it as well and neither are her parents concerned about it. Both the sisters are given the authority to wear whatever they like and go wherever they want to go. They go clubbing, and drinking and hang out with a number of boys as well (Quinn, 201). This shows that women have been portrayed in a manner that can be seen in the present era.
