this isn't about how she is represented as a tart but from what I remember when I did it was that the title she goes by was a representation of how women were still seen as objects by men; 'Curley's wife' as in, she belonged to Curley.

And also that the girl from Weed also wears a red dress, which gives the reader a sense of foreboding that something similar would happen again. Red not only connotes danger and death, but also seduction.

It also relates to the context, as women were low in status and not well respected in that period. Due to difference in status, women were often discriminated, being seen as promiscuous and a 'trap' (which could be seen in Of Mice of Men, like how the men call Curley's wife a 'jail bait'). This is why Curley's wife is lonely, and seeks for someone to talk to and express her true inner feelings

Hope this helps

How do I mention that George thinks she's a piece of 'jailbait?'
