Which Little Women character are you?
150 years ago, copies of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women were first slotted into the ‘A’ section of bookshop shelves.
Set during the Civil War, the first volume features a family living in poverty, their father absent, and it introduced young readers to a quartet of unusual heroines – a tomboy with a temper, one at death’s door, one vain, and one selfish – all trying their best to conquer their demons. It was just a touch different to other literature available to girls at the time, and it was greatly loved.
It is read with no less warmth now, addressing issues such as gender equality, and the importance of working hard and being oneself, and in each character there are both qualities and flaws that make them immensely easy to identify with. But which Little Women character are you most like?
