Maggie and her mother share a sisterhood that Dee will never understand. Through the characters of Mama, Maggie, and Dee, Walker displays the theme of oppression in the short story “Everyday Use.” Through the character of Mama, Walker communicates oppression due to a lack of femininity, education, and an inability to say “no” to Dee. Mama is a burley woman who, unlike Dee, enjoys the lesser things that life has to offer. She excels in the face of hard labor but lacks the skill to pull off a feminine version of herself.

She had a whole scheme planned out to her advantage in order to make her look like the sweet and kinder wife which she poses as. She acted and mislead Sam the grocer to have a witness in her behalf, and persuaded Sergeant Noonan along with his team to eat the evidence.

This line in the story occurred afterwards the investigators were eating the murder weapon (lamb), Mary Maloney was laughing at this moment which is bizarre and deranged behavior.
