Skeeter was raised in a wealthy family by her maid Constantine. Skeeter was a woman ahead of her time .. deep in the south. She thought of Constantine as an equal and in the 1960's in Mississippi that clearly was not the case. Skeeter had a vision for a book she wanted to write and that was telling the story from the point of view of the help.
Skeeter pitched this idea to Harper Row which is where she thought her dream job would be. They loved the idea of course since the civil right movement was gaining momentum and was in the news a lot. Skeeters only obstacle would be getting the help to tell the truth and to trust her.
