Flora White (1860-1948): New Woman, Stark Choice
Morice, Linda C.
Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, v45 n5 p478-495 2009
This article examines the life of education reformer Flora White, who both represented and deviated from the stereotypical new woman portrayed in popular literature of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. White's decision to reject marriage and children in favor of a career resulted in greater financial insecurity and an unmet desire for a legacy. At the same time, White's choice allowed the self-described "rebel" many opportunities for individual growth and personal satisfaction. (Contains 1 note.)
