Hilly was also very degrading towards others, and manipulative. “‘Like I’d even consider beating my friend Yule May Crookle out a her job. Miss Hilly think everbody just as two-faced as she is (Stockett 398).’” According to this quote, it is clear to see that Ms. Hilly does not have a good reputation in the black community. In the novel, Ms. Hilly is shown to be cruel to those who oppose her. She threatens Minny, Skeeter, and just about anyone who does not go along with her plans, or is associating with the black community For instance, when Yule May was denied of a raise to help her boys get into college from Ms. Hilly, she had no choice but to steal from Ms. Hilly.

Thus, from the whore, seductress and sexually objectified woman, which has been described previously, we turn to the Madonna and maternal stereotype. As Yolanda Pierce writes in “The Invisible Women in Ellison´s Invisible Man”, Mary is represented as “a typical “mammy” figure, existing only to serve the needs of others” (158). Mary is denied throughout the novel any kind of sexual desire or personal identity; she is useful in the novel as long as she serves the protagonist´s needs, acting as his guardian angel.
