If another woman were to be branded an adulteress, that woman would have probably try to keep her sin away from the townspeople and forever keep their peace.
Then there are our more characters like Mary Warren, Elizabeth Proctor, Reverend Paris, and Reverend John Hale who base their morals on the church and town they are more accepted or in "their place". When pressure is pushed onto somebody they can be forced further from there morals and this can lead them from their truths. One character that is a victim of pressure is Mary Warren. Mary Warren has many pressures from her peers and her peers are a big influence to her because she is a teenager. Mary Warren wouldn't have been in the trails as a huge problem but she was drag when Abigail framed her with a "voodoo" doll for Elizabeth Proctor.
Dickinson demonstrates in her poem the feelings of those who chose not to conform, and how because of society many valid feelings must be kept under wrap.
