Women of past centuries were hindered and unable to voice their desires and thoughts, but the handiness of narration and pseudonym allowed Charlotte and Emily Bronte the ability to begin the fight for equality of women. With her identity protected Emily Bronte narration allowed her the freedom to be heard and taken seriously, which was the platform she needed to show the dominate male world that women are very capable and
Emily Dickinson is a poetic mastermind who has written many mind twisting poems with great complexity and thought. She was also an advocate for women’s equality as seen in almost every poem in some subtle way. Emily Dickinson tends to include in her poetry the themes of women’s equality, social withdrawal, and individualism; a few poems that reflect her traditional themes are “They Shut Me Up In Prose” and “Much Madness is Divinest Sense”.
