Satisfactory Essays

Mayella Youl, a young, white women, with a self taught education finally gets seen by the town when the accusations against a man gets the town turned into a storm for being accused of rape. Mayella’s reason behind accusing Tom Robinson is for a way out. A way out of her fathers abusive grasp. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Mayella is powerful because of her race even more so being in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama when a white woman tries to get the attention of a town that has shunned her, she uses a man of color by making him feel sorry for her and to get her way. She becomes powerful to the courtroom by looking like the victim of a crime that was never committed. To be smart people think you have to be educated but that is not always true.
