Arthur Miller displays Individual vs. society in the Crucible by showing how the characters act out of society’s expectations of what they should be doing. Tituba and the girl are dancing around a fire and during this time dancing was a call to satan and was against the expectations of young adult girls, even though they know the consequences of their actions.
Abby is trying to jump out of a window to end her life and the girls are holding her back. She is going to end her own life rather than face the consequences of her actions and society’s expectations of these girls are to give there selves in but the other girls will refuse to let Abby kill herself because it would prove that’s they are guilty.
The girls are pointing at proctor accusing him of speaking with the devil, as every word proctor said the girls repeat. The expectations of the society is for the girls to admit their work with the devil and of witchcraft, but in order to protect themselves they are accusing proctor because they are afraid of what society will do to them even if they aren’t guilty.
