One response to “Feminist Archetype – The Spinster

  1. Enjoyed this one too, I’m becoming a fan! As a spinster meself I especially liked the part at the end envisioning women staying up late to talk straegy, etc. I’m reminded of Mary Daly’s autobiographical book Outercourse, filled with the pleasure of being a spinster. I imagine the Wickedary has a definition of spinster a lot like yours!

    On another note I don’t think it’s often brought up that the mills in mid-18th century England, though they were terrible places to work for many reasons, also put women to work almost for the first time anywhere and paid them a wage. And that was the beginning of autonomy.
