How does Steinbeck demonstrate how harsh and unforgiving the Great Depression was using this character's lack of relationships?

The depression has forced women like Curley's wife to marry the best they can. Women seldom worked nor could they find a job if they wanted to. In this case, she marries Curley. Curley’s father has money. She is forced to live in a ranch full of men. Curley is abusive and she feels lonely and isolated.
