Ellen Glasgow's Feminist Outlook Expressed in the New York Times Article "No Valid Reason against Giving Votes to Women"
Abstract: Early 20th century American writer Ellen Glasgow's feminist outlook is expressed not only in her novels, but also her essays and letters. While in her novels, she illustrates this outlook through life and position of different heroines, in her essays and journalism she does that in philosophical terms. Glasgow's feminist essays set the program which she further develops in her novels. The present work discusses Glasgow's attitude to some problems which arose in 1913 during suffragette parades held in England and dedicated to women suffrage, which drew a wide response in America. The work sets as its purpose to raise and answer the following questions: What is Glasgow's position in regard with suffragette movement and women suffrage as well as associated violence? Where does she see herself in the context of suffragette movement and problems emerged? How does she see the role of her native (Southern) women in terms of the movement? Finally, where in her opinion should suffrage and suffragette movement eventually lead to? The answers to these questions help the reader understand the feminist worldview of the writer at the given stage of her life and career.
