Aibileen Clark- A Protagonist in this novel, but isn't known as a good person to know unless you are looking for a maid. Aibileen is a older African-American woman who is a maid to one of the many young white woman in Jackson Mississippi. She wishes that things could be different for her and other maids as they work day after day for people who don't even see them as people themselves.
Minny Jackson- Another character as a Protagonist, Minny is also a maid as she is known for her famous cooking. Unfortunately she is often fired for her back-talking, sassy attitude. Even as she means well, her mouth could get her into some trouble.
Segregation/Gender Roles- This is the Antagonist in the Novel, as it makes Skeeter's life more challenging along with having her to overcome many obstacles on her way to obtain her life-long dream. Along with being a difficult obstacle to Other Characters as well.

Other Character's Perspective on Main Characters
Charlotte Phelan is the mother of Skeeter, and her top priority for her daughter is for her to get married. Not caring if her daughter is looking for a job in the business world, but not wanting her daughter to be a old woman with no husband or children.
Miss Hilly is white woman who is a "friend" of Skeeter, who had always been popular among the town and woman of it. She believed Skeeter shouldn't be learning or reading anything about how the world was being run in their country. It would make her think like the Help or have her not eligible to be married.
With the Antagonist, the character Miss Hilly, believes that women shouldn't be involved with what their husbands or any man does. That the men can handle it while they can live large and have be a "trophy wife".
Main Characters on Other Characters
My Impressions of Protagonist Character
What I dislike about the Gender-roles is that the men in society think of all the women as fragile and not strong, but although some are. Most women are even stronger than men in mind then in physical strength, having more potential than men do in the business world and society world.
Skeeter is like me in a way, as I see because of how hard she works to get what she wants as her goal. Making sure she succeeds, and if not. She tries, tries again.
My Impressions of the Antagonist Character
I dislike how society had seen women as people who are un-capable of doing simple things, yet they have the right-mind set to do what they can achieve in. This antagonist isn't like me at all, I believe that everyone is equal in their own way.
Characterization: In the End...
The Antagonist is a flat, but somewhat round character.
Many of the other Characters are flat and dynamic characters.
