How far does 'The Help' explore how women are empowered through solidarity? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently doing my English Lit critical theories coursework and am writing about The Help by Kathryn Stockett, applying feminist criticism.

    I am exploring the solidarity, or lack of solidarity, of women within the novel, in particular:
    • Aibileen and Minny (and the other help)
    • The unlikely friendship of Aibileen, Minny and Skeeter
    • The negative presentation of the solidarity of the Jackson Junior League Club

    If anyone can help with quotes that apply to the points I am writing about or additional points, that would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance
