Feminism in A Jury of Her Peers
Mrs. Hale compromised her husband’s call to attend to chicken matters and maintain order in her kitchen, which represent her success in home making skills. Mrs. Hale hated leaving things uncompleted. The husband is impatient when calling his wife, he expected her to stop working and make an automatic answer. Contrastingly, she kept work on her kitchen. The implication here is that men may compromise neatness to attend to other matters while women would rather confront a husband’s call to maintain neatness. Men in the story talk of the insignificance of women thus seem to look down on women. Here, the story is also promoting bodily integrity and autonomy in that it advocates for the men to respect women.
The fact that women are the ones who discover the guilt of Minnie is feministic. The men in this case are the Sheriffs and the witnesses who fail to notice the guilt of Minnie in killing her husband. The story illustrates that women assess keenly all detail with an intelligent eye that even a Sherriff and witnesses fail to note because they were men. Chauvinist views versus feministic perceptive is challenged when the attorney mocks women for preoccupying themselves in petty issues while praising men for performing the important jobs. Ironically, women solved the Minnie puzzle much easier than professional men did. The story calls for respect of women who are mostly abused by the men thus promoting bodily integrity and autonomy.
When the two women are alone in the kitchen, they notice the unhappy life of Minnie and her murdered husband. The two women therefore uncover the intention of murder. They notice that Minnie was neat and beautiful before marrying Mr. Wright but things change after marriage. However, the two women show empathy to Minnie. Here, the story shows the intelligence and the empathetic nature of women. Here, the story shows the suffering women go through in the hands of men thus promoting bodily integrity and autonomy.
