The two woman Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters were different in one way, and that was being loyal. Mrs. Hale is more loyal than Mrs. Peters. When the county wanted to put Mrs. Wright in jail she stood by her side through it all, even when they began criticizing her poor housekeeping skills. Mrs. Peters was by far inconsiderate when it came to determining a woman have feelings, and rights. She allowed the men to get inside her mind and believe the horrible housekeeping skills they would say of Mrs. Wright, before putting herself in her shoes. Although, it was beyond the county's duties to snoop around in her kitchen. Mrs. Hale stood up for her instead of allowing a man to brainwash her. Mrs. Peters was also not a true friend, she talked about her so badly. She mentioned how she didn't communicate with the woman in the neighborhood and her dirty dressing. It's like she made Mrs. Wright sound anti social, not into herself, and unfriendly. Mrs. Peters said before marrying Mr. Wright she use to keep herself up. Mrs. Peters lacked sympathy for Mrs. Wright, it was clear she was depressed. Mrs. Peters was more on the men side. The men joked around about Mrs Wrights quilt she did not finish making and so did she. Mrs. Hale showed her loyalty for Mrs. Wright when she said "I might have known she needed help! I know how things can be--for women. I tell you it’s queer, Mrs. Peters. We live close together and we live far apart. We all go through the same things--it’s all just a different kind of the same thing."
