These fairy tales sound a lot like those found in the timeless classics (Grimm, Anderson, etc), but the content is full of feminist themes and liberal ideas. If you're afraid to hand your child a book of fairy tales because you think she'll become a woman waiting for a man to rescue her, this is the antidote.
Professor of English at Wellesley College, 1889-1931. Sister of women's health pioneer Dr. Mary Sherwood and Johns Hopkins University economics professor Sidney Sherwood. Also wrote under the pen name Elizabeth Hastings.More about Margaret Pollock Sherwood...
