Stability of the colony

In her book, Suspect Relations, Kirsten Fischer argues that the stability of the colony was based on the maintenance of a

hierarchical social order rooted in the image of the “proper” English family. Using Suspect Relations, Stono Rebellion, and at

least one other source from our readings, please answer the following questions: Why were colonial Americans afraid of defiant

women, defiant slaves, and/or defiant workers? How did their ideas about gender, race, and class influence the political culture of

the 17th and early 18th centuries?
