The Destructive Power of Patriarchal Ideals in “Barbie Doll”
Marge Piercy’s “Barbie Doll” portrays how patriarchal ideals influence women’s self-perception and society’s perception of them, as well as the damaging consequences that they ensue. Throughout history, men have formed and maintained a standard of women which is both shallow and unachievable by nature. Femininity has come to be defined by submissiveness, domesticity, and an artificial image of superficial perfection. In this work of feminist literature, Piercy illustrates how these ideals are impressed in women from the moment they are born, and how the pursuit of these ideals lead to the destruction of women at their core.

Erik Erikson’s Stages of Psychosocial Development
Throughout life, a human being faces many obstacles and events of various natures. While these cannot possibly be predicted, proper psychosocial growth and maturation allow for the attainment of basic virtues needed to overcome them and achieve satisfaction in one’s existence. Erik Erikson, a notable psychoanalyst, spent much of his career specializing in the psychosocial aspect of individuals. His years of work resulted in his Theory of Psychosocial Development, which consisted of eight stages throughout the human life span, during which virtues and ego identity are formed. Understanding and ensuring the implementation of Erik Erikson's Stages of Psychosocial Development is essential to the proper social and psychological progression of human beings.
