The Crucible

Can you name me 3 forces that cause conformity in this play? With explanations

I'm writing a cause and effect essay on the crucible and the topic is conformity. I would like 3 examples for 3 paragraphs.

The exact prompt reads "Identify the forces that cause conformity in this play and demonstrate the effects that this extreme conformity has on specific characters lives"

Cause #1 - peer pressure seen in the behavior of the girls.

Cause #2 - Avoiding the threat of hanging - the women confess to something they did not do which saves their lives through a lie

Cause #3 - Going along with whatever the Puritans wanted as their doctrine and agreeing with that doctrine even when it was wrong.
