Korykowski, G. (2014) The Emergence of the New Woman in Victorian Children's and Family Literature

Abstract

In the Victorian era, the first wave of feminism surfaced in several influential family novels that modeled the “New Woman” instead of reinstating the “Old Girl.” Characters from the novels Little Women, Villette, Jane Eyre, and The Little Lychetts as they modernize the Victorian women in the fin de siecle. Now we see a trend similar to first wave feminism beginning to happen with biology, The Hunger Games andWill Grayson, Will Grayson show examples of how a “New Man” is defined in contemporary society.
