We and Our Neighbors: Or the Record of an Unfashionable Street, a Novel (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from We and Our Neighbors: Or the Records of an Unfashionable Street (Sequel to "My Wife and I") You don't say so! Said Miss Dorcas, her elder Sister, ?ying across the room to the window blinds, be hind which Mrs. Betsey sat discreetly ensconced with her knitting work. Where? Jack, get down, sir! This last remark was addressed to a rough-coated Dan die Dinmont terrier, who had been winking in a half doze on a cushion at Miss Dorcas's feet. On the first suggestion that there was something to be looked at across the street, Jack had ticked briskly across the room, and now stood on his hind legs on an Old em broidered chair, peering through the slats as industri ously as if his Opinion had been requested. Get down, sir! Persisted Miss Dorcas. But Jack only winked contumaciously at Mrs. Betsey, whom he justly consid ered in the light Of an ally, planted his toe nails more firmly in the embroidered chair-bottom, and stuck his nose further between the slats, while Mrs. Betsey took up for him, as he knew she would.

What a Young Woman Ought to Know

First published in 1913. Part of the Self and Sex Series. According to the Preface: "During a number of years it has been my privilege to be the confidante and counsellor of a large number of young women of various stations in life and in all parts of the United States. These girls have talked freely with me concerning their plans, aspirations, fears and personal problems. It has been a great revelation to me to note with what unanimity they ask certain questions concerning conduct--queries which perhaps might astonish the mothers of those same girls, as they, doubtless, take it for granted that their daughters intuitively understand these fundamental laws of propriety. The truth is that many girls who have been taught in the "ologies" of the schools, who have been trained in the conventionalities of society, have been left to pick up as they may their ideas upon personal conduct, and, coming face to face with puzzling problems, are at a loss, and perhaps are led into wrong ways of thinking and questionable ways of doing because no one has foreseen their dilemma and warned them how to meet it."

What Diantha Did

Early feminist author Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a pioneer not only in the realm of women's fiction, but also in a remarkable array of other ventures, including publishing, journalism, sociological research, and social reform advocacy. Like many of her works, including the gripping and oft-anthologized tale "The Yellow Wallpaper," the novel What Diantha Did deals with the challenges facing women in nineteenth-century society. In this novel, the protagonist solves the conflict between women's household duties and the financial imperative to work outside the home by opening a somewhat unusual boarding house.
