Podcast: Charlotte Bronte, Feminist Author

In just one day, it will be the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth — April 21, 1816.

Throughout this month, I’ve been featuring posts about Bronte and her most famous novel, Jane Eyre.

Today, I offer a final podcast about Charlotte Bronte, the feminist author. I know that, to some, anything with “feminist” in the title can be a turn-off, an indicator it’s meant for one audience alone. But I urge you to give this short podcast a listen. If you’re an author, you’ll see how much you might have in common with Bronte. If you’re interested in history, you’ll see how she struggled with the idea that women weren’t allowed to “be all they could be” because of their gender. And you’ll learn why she, along with her sisters, wrote under male pseudonyms, a history many women writers can still appreciate today.
