Summary/Abstract: The tradition of the feminine writing in the Romanian Principalities was born in circumstances determined by the social changes that took place during the century, which exerted a lot of influence on a woman’s daily life. Influenced by the women’s emancipation trend, which had a large resonance in France, England and America, they fought for the ideals of the feminist revolution: the promotion of women’s rights, liberty, equality, the assertion of the woman’s right to decide on herself, her body, her feelings, her destiny.
