Assuming that husbands and/or male doctors truly had womens best intentions in mind, in the end it often depicted them as mentally fragile creatures that cannot handle anything more than cooking, cleaning, being a mother & wife . Jennie, John’s sister serves as a representation to what women were expected to be during this time and what Jane did not want to be. Jennie takes care of the house & takes on the wifely duties along with Mary (who is only mentioned once) the nursemaid that tends to the baby. They also have absolutely no lines of their own in the story & Gilman likely did this on purpose. They both simply do their jobs & do as they are told without any interference to John whatsoever.

Since the Walls family is so poor and homeless it seems that Rex and Rosemary are not always there to give their children the support and comfort that kids need at a young age. Instead of giving love and comfort, they decide to teach their kids how to be tough and how to learn to do things themselves. Unlike most parents, who focus on supporting, caring for their children first, and then teaching them how to live on their own once they get much older.

The first time Jane observes Helen being made a spectacle at the hands of Miss Scatcherd, she notices “she neither wept nor blushed: composed, though grave, she stood, the central mark of all eyes” and that “her sight seems turned in, gone down into her heart: she is looking at what she can remember, I believe; not at what is really present” (Bronte #).

The things Mae Mobley’s mother teachers her are not just, and Aibileen took it upon herself to make sure Mae Mobley was taught the right way as long as she was around.
