In Susan Glaspells A Jury of Her Peers Mrs Hales and Mrs Peters husbands think they just work with insignificant kitchen things 284 all day long These insignificant things 284 are meaningless to the women until they start to notice the queerness 285 of some items Once discovering the true meaning of these items the women face a perplexing question of turning in one of their own kind or withholding truth and justice When thought of as useless by loved ones people shy from their loved ones to empathize with people with whom they can understand and relate Loved ones are lifes most precious things They are there when one needs a helping hand or a listening ear When one is thought of as useless they can be hurt emotionally When the women are in the kitchen being sympathetic 285 towards Mrs Wright and her fruit the men come in and laugh at them saying women are used to worrying over trifles 285 Mrs Hale and Mrs Peters feel alienated so they move a bit closer together 285 The women are told to keep an eye out 286 for a clue to the motive 286 As a quick leaving remark Mr Hale says but would the women know a clue if they did come upon it 286 The women do not appreciate this as they stand motionless and silent 286 waiting for the men to be gone When we think of people as being in different groups or herds we act as social animals Someone in the same herd is not as necessary as bad as someone in the other herd even when committing a worse crime When faced with the question of turning one of our own kind in we feel as if we are betraying the rest of the group This betrayal could also be a form of group superiority complex The groups in Mrs Peters case are loved family and friends
