‘The Help’ is a popular film created by the well-known director Tate Taylor. The film follows Skeeter Phelan a girl who has big dreams that have always been limited by society. The film was set in Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960’s where racial segregation and hatred was at its peak. The film leads you through this era and the struggles that come with it to send a warning to the readers about what is to come.

Skeeter Phelan in my mind could only be described in one word strong. She was strong in every situation always keeping her goal in mind no matter what was thrown in her way. We saw this strength grow throughout the film as she conquered different obstacles with her constant determination. This made me admire Skeeter, not just because of her values but because of her diversity. Without Skeeter the film would not be complete, her influence was irreplaceable. Her diversity was expressed through clothing choices which were quite the opposite of the frilly dresses worn by the other white women that surrounded her. This gave me a hint from the beginning that she was going to make an impact. Something that stuck with me after watching the film was the need for diversity and inclusion in society. Without diversity and inclusiveness there would be no progress and without any progress we would be in an ever revolving world. Diversity and inclusion in the human race is responsible for our leaders past, present and future. We as a whole species need to learn to celebrate
