Skeeter is different from her society lady friends. For one thing she actually graduated Ole Miss, instead of dropping out to get married like most of the girls. She has been gone from Jackson for four years, and when she returns she can't tell if it is her, or everyone else that has changed, but she knows that the town and her friends don't feel as friendly as they once did. Skeeter wants to be a writer, but the one application she mailed out came back rejected. She doesn't see it that way, though, since the pubisher wants her to get more experience, so she sees it as an opportunity. Now she's back at her mother's wondering what do with her life. Then things change, she gets a job at the Jackson Journal writing a "domestic maintenance column," but she knows nothing about keeping a house, so she must get advice from her friend's maid. This leads Skeeter in a direction she never expected and to the book that becomes a project that changes everyone's lives. Some for the better, but for others, it could be a change they never wanted, and maybe even feared.
