The paper analyzes "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams to reveal how the roles of men and women compare and contrast from the World War II era to the present. The paper points out that by understanding the traditional American role of the male as the power center of the home, some traits that Kowalski represent are still prominent in American society. However, the paper also shows how the contrasting view of World War II patriarchal values have changed due to the nature of feminist movements that have existed since the 1970s.
