By feministactivist In light of the misogyny fueled murders in Isla Vista, California on May 23rd I wanted to share a paper I wrote for graduate school back in Rest In Peace kids.
In the beginning, everyone asks for her advice about the two girls who were "sick".
Miller makes a point in his description of the Nurse faction to note that Rebecca was extremely well-esteemed in Salem, and that it would seem impossible to accuse her of witchcraft as a result.
At the end, she is still a strong character, despite the tragedy which had been thrust upon her, when Proctor says that "she wishes to go as a saint".

I believe I wrote in the margin of my copy "God forbid a woman reads! That's just a tiny bit of the novel, and it seems more like Miller was being sort of satirical; making fun of the status of women during that time, and maybe even his time.
I'm sure there is other evidence in the text, but I just remember that. More people need to respond to this!
