Summary
Many found a voice in a plethora of new voluntary organizations, and some southern white women attained national celebrity in the literary world, creating strong and capable heroines and mirroring an evolving view toward northern society." "Yet even as elite southern women experimented with their roles, external forces and contradictions within their position were making their unprecedented attitudes and achievements socially untenable. During the 1890s, virulent racism and pressures to re-create a mythic South left these women caught between the revived image of the southern belle and the emerging emancipated woman."--Jacket
