More importantly, however, Boo was the mysterious figure who saved the Finch children from Bob Ewell’s attack.

In the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, an abused young lady named Mayella Ewell shakes the town with accusing an African American named Tom Robinson of rape. Mayella has no power and that will be shown throughout her life and what people have said and done to her.

When it comes to class Mayella has very little power because she lives behind the town dump, the windows were merely open spaces in the walls, and the so called fence was broken tree limbs , broomsticks and tool shafts. Mayella did not have a lot going for her because she tried to keep clean, but she was still considered dirty.
