The Proto-FeministPosted: March 8, 2012
I feel like a schoolteacher in this outfit. Probably because it looks like something Veronika of Tick Tock Vintage would wear, and she’s a teacher… Anyway, today is International Women’s Day. It started out as a political/ feminist thing, but over the years – and certainly in Vietnam – it’s become a sort of Mother’s Day, a day for us to celebrate all women. So happy Women’s Day, ladies!
Speaking of feminism, I’m working on a guest post about feminist heroines in pre-feminism literature (hence the title “Proto-Feminist”) for my friend’s blog. So far the characters I’ve come up with are Jane Eyre, Elizabeth Bennett, Marianne Dashwood (maybe – I think she’s more of a feminist than Elinor), Anne Elliot from Persuasion (another maybe), and Margaret Hale from Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South. Those are the characters I know best, but if you guys have any suggestion, I’ll be happy to add them to my list!
