In 2011, a movie adaption was released of the book, “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett, a book told from the perspective of three women in the 1960’s as they write a book about the lives of maids in Jackson, Mississippi.

For instance, when Anne learned about Emmitt Till being killed, she ran to her mother for an explanation but her mother had replied “…just do your work like you don’t know nothing… that boy’s a lot better off in heaven than he is here” (262).

It was commonplace for a man to beat his wife or child; this especially contrasts with Janie’s independence.

My mother always stated that she was fearful that her mother raised her to rely too much on other people so she raised my two sisters and I to dependent on almost no one and to be as self-sufficient as possible.
