What is a good motif i can illustrate about the book and how

One motif you might consider is the perceived danger that women pose to the ranchmen. Steinbeck's portrayal of women is unflattering at best. George and Lennie run from a woman from a previous ranch. This same motif is used when Curley's wife shows up at the ranch. There is always tension around lonely women at a ranch full of men. Unfortunately George does not have the mental faculties to understand the danger.
