Happy #InternationalWomensDay #Pemberlittens!!
Here‘s to Jane writing about representation and #ownvoices in Persuasion back in 1818!
And these two chapters of Mansfield Park offer a poignant own voices description of what it was like for Jane and her Regency sisters. First being pressed to marry by Edmund with his “kind authority” 🙄 Then the cautionary tales of Mrs Fraser and Lady Stornaway trapped in marriages⤵️
I wanted to share this amazing & inspiring book I have read back in 2020.
It tells a story of Edna and her life in Somaliland as well as her brief visits abroad. She is truly a woman of many firsts with extraordinary achievements in her home region having overcome many challenges.
Such a great read for #InternationalWomensDay !
