The "mothers" of Jefferson appear as a distinct group several times in The Town. They bring their little children to the kindergarten class in which Wallstreet Panic and Admiral Dewey Snopes are already enrolled, for example. We also use this entry to refer to the larger group that Gavin refers to as "Southern mothers" - the women who want "their daughters" to attend college in Virginia (221).
