To Kill a Mockingbird

How does the title tie in with the book seeing as its a sin to kill a Mockingbird and all the Racism and Feminism going on?

I am required to read this in my English class, even though I already read 5 times by choice, and I have my own copy. I never understood how the title ties in with the books plot. I need to know this for the final, too. So, I would really like some help.

Thank You for you help,

The title directly relates the novel's themes to the reader. Although racism is a prevalent theme, I don't see feminism present in the same way. Only a brief mention of women serving on juries and Aunt Alexandra's insistence that Scout learn to be a lady speak to the theme of feminism. The mockingbird and its symbolism of innocence is a major theme of the novel, as out entire story revolves around hurting or killing things or people that do nothing more than bring beauty and happiness to our world.
