To Kill A Mockingbird Describe the outward pressures on Scout to “become a lady.” Do you think Atticus applies the same pressures? Why, or why not? Why do you think Atticus behaves in this way?

(1) Answers

People who pressure Scout into "being a lady" could be Aunt Alexandra, the ladies of Maycomb, Miss Stephanie Crawford, and maybe even Mrs. Dubose. Atticus does not apply the same pressure because he wants his children to be who they are, not who they are supposed to be.
