Miss Maudie is not like the other women of Maycomb in that she treats them kindly and avoids patronising them. It is Miss Maudie who explains to the children that although the verdict for Tom Robinson was inevitable from the start, Atticus has done a great thing in moving the town one small step forward towards equality and fair representation for all. She is a fierce supporter of Atticus and his efforts in defending Tom, which does not always endear her to the rest of the town, but it does mean that the children respect and trust her.
