Meg compared all the women to a row of paper dolls. She notes that their dresses have different patterns but they still all look the same. She observes them as they come to the doors, clap at their children, bring the children in and then close the door all in unison. Later in the novel, we learn that this behavior is caused by the people succumbing to the power of IT - a pulsated evil being that tries to force everyone and everything into conformity. Meg's fight against this conformity and forced equality demonstrate the importance of standing firm against the crowd and the power of love, especially in a family.

The women were compared to a row of paper dolls. They all looked the same except for the print of their dresses.
