Women Who Wrote : Stories and Poems from Audacious Literary Mavens
by Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte




Overview -
Meet the women who wrote.

They wrote against all odds. Some wrote defiantly; some wrote desperately. Some wrote while trapped within the confines of status and wealth. Some wrote hand-to-mouth in abject poverty. Some wrote trapped in a room of their father's house, and some went in search of a room of their own. They had lovers and families. They were sometimes lonely. Many wrote anonymously or under a pseudonym for a world not yet ready for their genius and talent.

We know many of their names--Austen and Alcott, Bront and Browning, Wheatley and Woolf--though some may be less familiar. They are here, waiting to introduce themselves.

They marched through the world one by one or in small sisterhoods, speaking to each other and to us over distances of place and time. Pushing back against the boundaries meant to keep us in our place, they carved enough space for themselves to write. They made space for us to follow. Here they are gathered together, an army of women who wrote and an arsenal of words to inspire us. They walk with us as we forge our own paths forward.

These women wrote to change the world.
