Scout's Tomboyish Quotes

166 Words1 Page
Scout was beginning to put away her tomboyish acts and started acting like a young lady, "She seemed glad to see me when I appeared in the kitchen, and by watching her I began to think there was some skill involved in being a girl". This quote can be seen as a point where Scout started seeing being a girl a good thing rather than bad. Her brother Jem used to make fun of Scout when she would act like a girl, saying that girls are weak. Making this change from being a tough tomboy to a tough girl is a pretty big deal. In chapter 24, when Aunt Alexandra is hosting her missionary tea at the Finch’s Residence, Scout is inside instead of being outside to avoid it. She’s also wearing a dress, a pink one at that, in place of her usual shirt and shorts.
