History fans - can you help me with a thesis & outline?

What brought about the Salem Witch Trials of 1692? What does this story tell us about the role/place of women in colonial America?

At least a tentative thesis and maybe a few key points/sections to hit in the paper.

Thank you

  • Yes, sharing ideas for a thesis and key points is truly writing an 8 pg research paper.
    History is not my forte. I'd though you could help.

  • The puritans were very religious and superstitous. I don't know for sure, but I read that they were also tripping on ergot.

  • Money, envy, not falling into the norm, ergot
    Research will yield many answers. That is why it is a thesis.
