In the play Trifles By Susan Glaspell, Mr. Wright had been murdered and the suspected murderer is his wife Minnie Wright. Mrs. Peters and Mrs.Hale both went to get Mrs.Wright items such as clothing for her while she is in jail. At first Mrs.Hale attitude more defensive when it comes to women and sympathizes with Mrs.Wright while Mrs.Peters was not, however, this changes by the end of the play. In the beginning of the play when the County Attorney states that Mrs.Wright was “Not much of a housekeeper, would you say, ladies?”(4) Mrs.Hale becomes rather stiffly and answers the attorney saying that” There’s a great deal of work to be done on a farm.”(4) , the attorney replies that there are some farms which have cleaner towels but Mrs.Hale then tells him that men’s hands aren’t as clean. Mrs.Peters had no input regarding this argument, it seems that Mrs.Peters at this point was more neutral or was more sided with the law. When the men went upstairs to check the crime scene, Mrs. Hale says that she would hate it to have men snooping around and criticizing her house, however, Mrs.Peters replies and says that “Of course it’s no more than their duty” (5). The ladies then discusses whether or no Mrs.Wright had committed the crime then Mrs.Hale mentions that “it seems kind of sneaking.Locking her up in town and then coming out here and trying to get her own house to turn against her!”(6) and Mrs.Peters replies “But, Mrs.Hale, the law is the law.”(6) Here Mrs.Peters is still not on Mrs.Wright’s side and still does not agree when Mrs.Hale says about the men sneaking and investigating.After Mrs.Hale and Mrs. Peters discovered the dead bird inside the box, Mrs.Peters attitude changes and she starts to agree with Mrs.Hale. The ladies had come to realize that Mr.Wright had probably killed the bird and Mrs.Wright probably had to deal with stillness after her only joy was killed. Mrs.Peters sympathizes with Mrs.Wright stating “I know what stillness is”(10). Still looking for a reason for the murder, the men goes back to the ladies to look for evidence once again.Mrs.Peters who is “Married to the law” according to the Sheriff tries to hide the dead bird from the men to protect Mrs.Wright. The box containing the bird was too big to fit in her coat pocket so Mrs.Hale took the box and shove it into her pocket hiding the evidence that the County Attorney needed for a motive.The two ladies “knot” together and hides the evidence for the attorney to protect Mrs.Wright from all that she went through.
