Sadie And Maud Contd.
The poem, "Sadie and Maud" by Gwendolyn Brooks is very similar to the play "Madea" that we read in class. Madea represents the double bind factor that affects women. She is known to be crazy and dangerous because she is smart and clever but is she had followed the societal rules, Jason would have still left her or treated her like a second class citizen. Women like Sade, Maud and Madea are expected to follow impossible standards. No matter how smart of successful they may become it is all the same according to society.
