The Great Gatsby

“I hope she’ll be a fool-that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” Fitzgerald describes in the opening of the book what Nick wishes and hopes that Daisy will amount to. Fitzgerald does not hold a very high opinion of women throughout the entire novel and demonstrates this through his characters’ actions. Particularly, Fitzgerald shows his dislike of the 1920’s women in Jordan, Myrtle, and Daisy.
To begin with, Fitzgerald introduces Jordan as a nosy woman, however, Nick falls in love with her. She has a mysterious charm about her that attracts Nick to her, but she shares the similarities of the 1920’s women.

Jordan is the perfect example of this because she does not treat Nick with respect and she does not show any respect for herself with the way that she carries herself.

Overall, not the typical woman of the 1920’s, Jordan exhibits a lot of traits that go along with women of the 1920’s.
Next, more of the typical 1920’s flapper, Myrtle attends parties, social gatherings, smokes, and drinks.

Myrtle dresses in a risqué fashion, the way that flappers of the 1920’s dressed. Fitzgerald characterizes Myrtle by the way she speaks. Myrtle has a bad mouth and does not speak in a way that women should speak. Her flamboyant ways lead the reader to think of her as conceited. Myrtle…
