Through this, Toni Morrison focused on the unjust relationships within the novel that pointed back to the antagonist, Sula. One relationship that emphasized the fluctuation of loyalty is the connection between mother and daughter. This relationship is closely shined upon as the dominant figures, such as men, are decrease and eliminated from the lives of the women.

But as discussed before, hatred was only a consequence of betrayal. Even if it did blind her to a certain extent, the hatred did not completely erase the motherly affection Medea has for her children. At many points in the play, Medea speaks of her children as a real caring mother would.
