In the novel , The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne tells a story about a puritan woman who commited adultery and was not killed only because she was conceived. She was judged by nearly everyone in her town, even years later when her daughter grew up.

The first example would be when Sarah remarks the Graveyard of Failed Hopes is “an all-female establishment”; ironic since she would become a driving force of change for the better. Sarah is discouraged to be a jurist by her family, even told essentially to give up her dreams and go husband hunting. Around the time Sarah Grimké was around, I’m sure a lot of women faced gender stereotypes such as that. Not only were they slaves to their family’s expectations, but also the rules of society. The world was very biased against females in all aspects back then, some of those prejudices still live on today.

There, they were brutally treated and one was reported to be killed as they were sent to unsanitary, frigid, rat-infested cells regardless of age.
