Aunt Alexandra comes to live with Jem and Scout for a while.  She talks to Atticus about it and thinks it's necessary to be there so Scout has a female influence.  Scout sees no need for her to be there, because she is a tom-boy and is not yet interested in anything 'girly' like boys or clothes.  The aunt requires that Scout do more feminine things however, like attending her missionary socials.
