It's Linden. You sat by me." "I recall. Sorry I didn't speak to you, I had quite an anxious day." Her eyes traveled down my body. Was she... checking me out? Judging me? I didn't know how to react or what to think, so I suppressed a smirk and shifted my weight to my left leg. I kept asking myself the same question: why was I so smitten with a girl? All my life, I had silly crushes on attractive boys who'd never notice me. I didn't even know Demeri, but I felt like I could know her very well. "I moved here a little late in the year."

What I’ve observed from Celia’s case and all the readings for this paper is that being a woman is difficult no matter what your status or colour were, in the Antebellum period of the South. Gender dictates how you’ll live, disregarding your position in society. While our society has changed from a rigid patriarchal system of the 19th century, even today, the remnants of patriarchy persists through the way people think.

Most often when they do, they asked for women slave owners help. Maybe they thought that these people, as women themselves would understand what they’re experiencing and be sympathetic and empathise because they are bounded by their gender and suffering.
