A novel set in the early 1960s, The Help tells the story of Eugenia Skeeter, a young southern journalist who defies social norms and interviews black maids, including Aibileen and Minny, about their lives as servants. She turns these stories into a book, which, when published, gives a voice to the black women who had never had one before, and shames the white society which treated them so poorly.
