Explain how Scout understands what being a lady means.

I think Scout takes her inspiration from ladies like Miss. Maudie and Calpurnia. She sees them as examples of strong women who have a strong sense of justice and compassion. They do not have ingrained prejudice and, like Atticus, they stand up for what they believe in. Miss Maudie has a gentle yet stoic way about her. Calpurnia has risen above much prejudice and discrimination. She too shows stoicism in a life that has been very difficult.
