Feminity in Uncle Toms Cabin Most readers who have read Harriet Beecher Stowes novel Uncle Toms Cabin remember its anti-slavery message A stronger theme that Stowe implies throughout the story is its pro-Christianity message However the strongest message that Stowe sends in her novel is the pro-woman issue One way Stowe shows the importance of a woman is when she has the woman influence her husband or son A woman who influences her husband is Mrs Bird the senators wife Eliza shows up at her house tired and scared At first Mr Bird did not want to her help her because he was against aiding and abetting slaves Mrs Bird convinces him to let her come inside the house and help her on her way north In this case Mrs Bird has influence over her husband Another woman who influences the men in her family is Mrs Shelby Mrs Shelbys love for her mulatto slave Eliza is the only reason why Mr Shelby does not sell her She also convinces George not to take action into his own hands when Tom is sold telling him they would buy Tom back as soon as they got the money Stowe also empowers women in her novel by making them good mothers or role models to their children Mrs Shelby teaches her son George to love and help the slaves Eliza shows strength as a mother for she would not let her child be sold and instead risks her own life trying to run away Cassy acts as a role model and mother figure to Emmeline who is without her real mother at the Legree plantation Together they hide in the garret and eventually gain their freedom Ophelia who becomes a mother figure to Topsy changes Topsy from a girl who stole into a nice Christian child who loves These examples show the power and influence women have over their children
