Freeman's intentions : LUSENET : americanlit : One Thread

After reading Freeman's stories(especially the revolt of mother) I felt proud about being a female. Her stories made me feel strong and a gave me a sense that I could accomplish anything. Do you think Freeman wrote her stories to make a feminist point, but do you think she may have also wrote them to make women of that time period feel the same way she made me felt? Did she want women to rise up and take a stand?

I think that Freeman wrote her stories to make a point. Isn't that kind of the point of writting. I think what she wanted to get across is that women of that time weren't just housewifes. That they had feelings, dreams, and hopes also. It seems to me that Freeman wanted more women to take a stand in what they believed in and to do what made them happy.
