  1. I loved the girl-power link! Classic novels do have some amazingly strong heroines. I might also add Marilla of Anne of Green Gables. I know she isn’t the main character, but I have always admired her willingness to change and learn. She completely reinvented herself at sixty. How many of us will be able to say that?!

    Loved the 100 years of fashion. I kept waiting fro the gloves and hats to disappear. I remembering my mom alway wearing hats and cloves when she was going out.

    The girl power link was great, too. I have read and loved many of those books. Jane Eyre, Little Women and Anne of Green Gables are all favorites from my childhood that I have re-read as an adult. I think I have re-read Little Women more than any other book. I just started re-reading Anne for the 3rd time. I have not read Agnes Grey but it sounds wonderful. I agree with what she said about the Cinderella movie. It showed the true values and attributes that a girl/woman should pursue.

    The last link was also great. That was encouraging.

    Thanks for finding and sharing such great articles and items!
