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, Brontë 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.

  • About the Contributor(s) Louisa May Alcott, author of the classic novel, Little Women, was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania on November 29, 1832 to...Louisa May Alcott, author of the classic novel, Little Women, was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania on November 29, 1832 to Amos Bronson and Abigail May Alcott. Alcott died on March 6, 1888, two days after the death of her father. She was fifty-six. She was buried on 'Author's Ridge' near her family, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau. By the time of her death, her book sales had exceeded one million copies, a remarkable tally in that time. She had earned $200,000 for her work. One hundred years after her death, she still had books on the best seller lists.

    Jane Austen was the author of classic novels Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814), and Emma (1816). Two other novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, were published posthumously in 1818 with a biographical notice by her brother, Henry Austen - the first formal announcement of her authorship. Persuasion was written in a race against failing health in 1815-16.



    Charlotte Brontë was an English novelist and poet, the eldest of the three Brontë sisters whose novels became classics of English literature. Bronte’s works were revolutionary for their time, reflecting an unblinking truthfulness about love and relationships – an uncommon literary subject in Victorian-era England. While Jane Eyre was, and continues to be, Charlotte Bronte’s most popular work, she published numerous works during her short life, including juvenilia, poetry, and the novels Shirley and Villette. Charlotte Bronte died in 1855, outliving both of her sisters, Anne and Emily. Collectively, the Bronte sisters novels are considered literary standards that continue to influence modern writers
