The paper discusses Henrik Ibsen's play "A Doll's House" which seems to only have to do with 1960's and 1970's era women's issues when many women were still struggling to be equal, at work or as persons in their own right. The paper notes then many women found it difficult to enter professions like medicine or engineering which were dominated by men. There was also more social pressure on women to marry, have children, take care of a home and 'know their place.' The paper comments that much has changed since then and that Ibsen's "A Doll's House" remains relevant and that it is not only a play about women's rights even if that seems its most obvious focus. The paper notes that "A Doll's House" can be looked at freshly from the perspective of today's much different world - but also one in which pressures and expectations still exist, and one where men and women alike struggle perhaps now more than ever to find their authentic selves.
