The opening scene of The Help, you see Aibileen, a black female that works for Mrs Leefolt. Aibileen opens the film with heartfelt stories of her personal experience in the maid industry. She says a saying through out the film to one of her white babies which is “you is kind, you is smart, you is important.” This quote I believe is an important one because Aibileen is teaching the baby to believe in herself and know that she is smart, kind and important. Aibileen also covers in the start of the film why she was a maid and how she came to become and made and that was “because her mama was one and her grandmamma was a house slave.”

In Charlotte Brontë 's, Jane Eyre, we see a reversal of gender roles for both Mr. Rochester and Jane. In multiple scenes of the book the two switch back and forth from their “natural” roles, which ends up benefiting the two. In the story, Mr. Rochester, the big burly owner of Thornfield, occasionally drops his natural patriarchal role to become a feminine character. Jane also does this as she takes on a more masculine role from time to time, and drops her feminine complacency. While usually both characters dropping their gender-specific roles could turn out bad, in this story, dropping the stereotypical gender roles by blurring them leads to happiness by the end of the story.
