Curley's wife is weak too. She is so weak that Steinbeck doesn't even give her a name. She is an outsider simply because she has married Curley and become his property. Her identity striped, she wanders the ranch in search of company. He conversation with the outsiders is significant because she is much like them. All feel isolated. They share a similar pain even though Curley's wife attempts to distance herself from their plight.
