Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Daring and dynamic, the "new woman" came to represent the very spirit of an age in flux. Featuring work by authors as diverse as Kate Chopin and Oscar Wilde, Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Thomas Hardy, this anthology looks at society through the eyes of women as they encountered new choices in marriage, motherhood, work, and love. Charting a rebellion that was social, sexual, and literary, with characters ranging from lady detectives and suffragette rebels to femmes fatales, and covering such subjects as adulterous liaisons, the pleasures of the single life, the possibilities of same-sex relationships, and the joys of shopping, Women Who Did shows women breaking free from convention.
