In SOCIETY IN AMERICA, Harriet Martineau brought some issues that dealt with women’s rights and lack of freedom in government laws, policies, and their own freedom. This passage mostly referred to the government vs. all women. However, this is a social construct between men and women as Thomas Carlyle describes the differences in social class and its order in society within his excerpts Sartor Resartus. These two themes are connected because it displays the rules of the world and society to have a dominant group and a subordinate group. The dominant group being the more ‘normalized’ or ‘superior’ to other groups. Leaving the subordinate group to fend for themselves or be treated as less equal and important.
