She didn’t just let it go to waste though, she made the most of her life. She understood that there wasn’t much she could do to help free the slaves in good conscience. Had Phillis taken a Harriet Tubman role she would be destroying the trust between her family, who loved and cared for her dearly. Instead of destroying that trust, she did good things in other ways.

When the community finds out that Skeeter believes as she does, they do many things to punish her for believing so. Mainly, other female characters explicitly exclude her from clubs and activities that had she had been a part of for her entire life.
