More About This Title Jodie Mae


Jodie Mae, a young woman, is desperate to break free of the stigma of being “white trash” and makes sacrifices few women would consider. Eventually, that determination brings her a head-on confrontation with the male-dominated culture of ’40s and ’50s Mississippi. She takes them on, “I’ll run for sheriff,” and nearly loses her life in the process.

She falls in love, twice, but love takes a back seat to her need to “be somebody” to live as an equal, not second class.
