In this particular poem, Meeker talks about a woman who is a mother of several children and she cannot afford to feed herself, but as long as her children are fed she can handle it.
This strongly represents the cultural and societal views of the time because they believed being a housewife was their "sole responsibility". Katherine, the teacher, was criticized and gossiped about because she was older than thirty and not married. My own grandmother, who was about the same age in the 1950's as the students in the film, in fact graduated with honors and a Bachelor's degree in Sociology. However, shortly after, she married, started a family, and did not pursue a career. She has never expressed regret for her decision, but it is a real life example of what society expected of women during that time period.
In other case, she was raised by her father and brother because her mom died when she was two. When Scout was a narrator this is what she said to the reader “’ Our mother died when I was two, so I never felt her absence”’ (7). This quote shows that she is tomboyish because her dad been in her life and she don’t really miss her mother that much and there really no female in her house except the maid. This is interesting because back then you see girls that are very girly and wear dresses and make up. Another reason that Scout is so interesting is because she is smart.

The first scene in this story that had an emotional impact on me was when Jacobs (Linda) was talking about her grandmother and how she saved her earnings in hope of one day buying her children. She was well on her way to achieving this goal until her master died and the children were sold. As a mother myself, I could not imagine having my daughter taken from me and sold to the highest bidder. Not being able to see her every day and know how she was doing would definitely take an emotional toll on me. Another thing in her writing that was emotional for me was that Linda always wanted a better life for her children.
