Solution

The correct option is B

actresses


This description question is a bit tricky because the second-best choice is rather good. Women are concerned with the image they present, so they cannot be themselves--theymust act their part. Hence the answer is (C). You may have been tempted by (A). According to the passage, women are thrown into the role of an actress, "into the keeping of men.” So, like victims, they are not responsible for their social position. However, nothing in the passage directly suggests that it is wrong for women to be in this position or that women attempt to refuse this role. According to the passage, therefore, women are not, strictly speaking, victims. (Victim means "someone not in control of something injurious happening to him or her.”)
