Description

"A lady? decidedly. Fast? perhaps. Original? undoubtedly. Worth knowing? rather." Daring and dynamic, the 'new woman' came to represent the very spirit of the age. The stories in this anthology take up this phenomenon and examine society throughthe eyes of the new woman, as she encountered new choices in marriage, motherhood, work and love. Women Who Did charts a rebellion that was social, sexual and literary. It tells the stories of competing voices of the men and women who entered into the fray of the fin de siecle, and were not afraid to confront, challenge or delight in the irrepressible New, in an irrepressibly new form, the short story.
