Joe holds another meeting where he announces that Eatonville must have a mayor. Tony declares that Joe should be the mayor. The crowd shouts that they would like to hear Janie speak after Joe is elected, but Joe takes the podium instead of her, saying that Janie should not speak; she is a woman and her place is in the home. Janie is upset but makes herself smile because it is proper to do so.
