The main character of Speak is named Melinda and she faces social affiliation throughout the book. My first reason is her group of friends that stopped being her friend after she called the police on a party. “I am outcast” as Mel said when nobody in the school will talk to her.

There are many accounts like this one of girls who have been attacked for standing up for themselves against advances from men who think only of their own needs. This creates the problem of women feeling unsafe, with the possibility of being harassed and attacked when they step foot outside.
