The short stories, “A Lamb to the Slaughter” and “A Jury of her Peers” are similar in many ways. The obvious way that they are similar is that both stories have husbands being murdered by their wives. The women in both of the stories were very much underestimated and almost taken for granted. For instance, in a jury of her peers the women are told that they would not know what evidence was even if they had found it. But in the story the women solve the crime and figure out the motive.

Law enforcement must decide what degree this specific murder is. Voluntary manslaughter, or second degree murder, is I believe most accurately describes Mary’s crime. In the heat of the moment, Mary seemed to go temporarily insane. After all, the person she loved the most has admitted he would want to leave her. It is stated in the story that she doesn’t feel anything after hearing Patrick’s secret.
She has also lied about many things on multiple occasions in which causes an extreme amount of suspicion. For example, Abigail harshly threatens the girls with the fact that she is capable of killing them. The group of girls, deciding that keeping quiet is far better than being murdered,

Thus, the author clarifies that she must be treated as an important and unique creature because she is going to be one of the few housewives. Hekker concludes by mentioning that being a housewife is a heroic job if and only if the works that a housewife does is for children, husband, and house of someone else.
It reveals how people commit cruel acts out of selfish intentions. In this situation, the girls claim to “come to Heaven’s side” by pointing fingers at others for witchcraft, although they were only doing so to get themselves out of their own trouble. These acts of cruelty reflect upon the evil motives of the perpetrators that become more common after it is done once, as seen through the continuous trials and suspicions, which acts as one of the most major conflicts in the play.
