"A lady? decidedly. Fast? perhaps. Original? undoubtedly. Worth knowing? rather."

Daring and dynamic, the "new woman" came to represent the very spirit of the age. The stories in this anthology take up this phenomenon and examine society throughthe eyes of the new woman, as she encountered new choices in marriage, motherhood, work and love.
