Women's History Month- Amelia's Favoutite Writers
"My Aunt doesn't approve of me reading. She says it fills my head with ideas at least that's what she says about girls' reading. Although she does encourage me to read poetry and play the piano because she says it will be easier to find an educated husband who will be able to look after me if I do. My teacher made me promise I'd keep on reading, though. I love reading fiction by Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and Emily Dickenson. Aunt says fiction is a waste of past time! It may be fiction but inspiration has to come from real life experiences. One day, things will change for girls, maybe not in my lifetime but someday!"
