This is also indicative of the indisputable presence of sexism in Salem. Even after John Proctor confesses about his sin in act III, this only adds to Abigail’s loathsome personality. Seventeen centuries later, the female part of the society still bears the heavy weight of the original sin.

From the very beginning, Sweetness describes her depressed situation expecting the future victimization of her baby.

The last sociological concept is deviance Baby deviated from her family to find herself and be with Johnny she discards her shy, and timid appearance to become someone who can dance with joy and speak her mind about what she wants to her father. Johnny deviates from his friends not listening to Penny's advice to stay away from Baby so that he will not get hurt he doesn't listen and it gets him in trouble.
