The Guardian The Little House books as feminist classics

 

Nobody knows what feminism is any more, but it isn't just about equal pay and abortion rights. It's about appreciating femaleness for femaleness's sake. Wilder was right wing, religious, practically silent as a writer until her 65th year. What pulls these books of hers, unwittingly or not, on to a feminist level derives from her innate rebelliousness, hinted at in the fictional Laura's moments of indignation, sisterly rivalry and daredevil escapades. Wilder boldly took the American dream and 18th-century individualism to include herself, and wrote without apology about the daily lives of women and girls.
