Synopsis
Fredrika Bremer's novels, first published in Sweden starting in 1831, were considered clever and strikingly well-informed in matters concerning women. They were translated and many editions were sold. Her aim was not just to entertain, but to educate. She yearned to make women stand up as equal partners, and to inform men about their duties to women. She took positions on political questions, started social projects, and chided the church for its political conservatism and theological rigidity. Bremer needled the government to change its laws. Reaching beyond Europe, she travelled for two years in America, then wrote her classic "The Homes of the New World". She met such notables as Emerson and Dakotah Chief Gray Iron. In this detailed biography, Fredrika Bremer emerges as both forthright and enigmatic. It encapsulates the combination of her courage to witness and agitate for change, as well as her desire for privacy and meditation.
