May, Jill P.
Children's Literature in Education, v11 n1 p10-20 Spr 1980
Discusses how the female characters in Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women" represent a significant break from the typical late nineteenth-century New England housewife image, noting that they suggest that women have a right to express themselves freely in conversation, to choose roles for themselves, and to maintain their goals after marriage.
