“Initiation” by Sylvia Plath explores the internal conflict that the protagonist, Millicent, faces when she is elected to be a part of a high school sorority. As Millicent goes through initiation, she considers whether entering the sorority is worth pursuing. Eventually, she decides that being classified as simply a member of the sorority as well as leaving her friend Tracy out was not ideal for her. In the beginning of her initiation, she wanted Tracy to become a part of the group and was confident she would make it in the following year; however, once Louise pointed out to Millicent that Tracy was not well-liked by the other girls, she didn’t want to abandon her, “then there was another thing that bothered her. Leaving Tracy on the outskirts.”
