In 1963, Aibileen Clark is an African-American maid in Jackson, Mississippi. She works for socialite Elizabeth Leefolt, caring for her daughter Mae Mobley, whom Elizabeth neglects. Aibileen’s best friend and fellow maid Minny Jackson works for Mrs. Walters, whose daughter Hilly Holbrook leads the women’s socialite group and is president of the city’s Junior League chapter. Elizabeth and Hilly’s mutual best friend Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan, a recent graduate of Ole Miss and an aspiring writer, is uncomfortable with her town’s racist attitudes toward their maids, including Hilly’s insistence on installing separate bathrooms for the help. Skeeter lives with her parents at Longleaf, their cotton plantation. Skeeter learns that her mother Charlotte fired Constantine, the maid who raised her, and decides to write a book of interviews with African-American maids working for white families.

Minny is soon fired by Hilly for using the guest bathroom during a storm and rendered unemployable due to Hilly’s lies, but finds a job as a housemaid at the Footes, for Celia, a housewife ostracized by the socialites. Celia treats Minny with respect and they become friends, but keeps Minny’s employment secret from Celia’s husband Johnny, Hilly’s former beau. Celia suffers a miscarriage, and reveals to Minny that she has had three previously, two of which Johnny is unaware of.
