Harriet Beecher Uncle Tom’s Cabin is a fascinating look at the place of women in society. The book’s male characters handled slavery differently than the women.
The book made it clear that women were essential to a morally-based society. Missis Shelby’s question, “Oh Missis, Do You Think Mas’r Would Sell My Harry?” This is her response when Harry was announced to be being sold. (Stowe 54). This woman is motherhood. Once upon a while, I saw that most women see babies regardless of their genetic orientation. This is a significant observation that I have made on numerous trips to children’s care homes, where most of the duties are done by women.
Reading Stowe has shown me the courage mothers show in protecting their children. In the book, Harry’s dad fled. In this situation, however, Eliza says that the author presents a scenario where a mother will risk her life to protect her child. Your mother is going to rescue you even though they have sold your soul” (Stowe 85). It’s not uncommon to hear of refugee mothers struggling with their children, even during fragile times such as civil wars.
Through the story, I learned how important moms are in shaping children’s personalities. Stowe, for example, says that George is of white descent through his father. He was born to one of the unlucky children of his race, who had a physical beauty that distinguished them (166). The material in this case shows how George’s love for slaves is a result of his mother’s nurture. As a child, I noticed that my mother cared more about humility than our father. He was more interested in bravery and character.
The novel conveys lessons in succinct ways about how women can play a role in society concerns like the abolishment of slavery. There are many examples that show women cared much more about slaves’ conditions than men, who were more concerned with their economic worth. George and other individuals have attributed their generosity to their mothers.
