MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a collection of 23 translated short stories, extracts from novels and diary extracts all written by Scandinavian women writers. The period covered is from the 1880s to the 1980s. The ordering of these pieces may be said to parallel the histories of women in these countries. Early extracts deal with the constraints of marriage and motherhood. The suffrage movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries has an impact and the pieces show an increasing awareness of social, economic and political issues. Similarly, we have clear evidence of the influence of the feminist movement of the 1960s and 1970s giving rise to an increasing range of concerns and styles. Generally, the collection may be said to illustrate4 both the gains achieved by Scandinavian women during this period as well as the problems and obstacles that remain."-Studies on Women Abstracts
