This paper relates the story of "Little Women" which centers around the character Jo who is Alcott's impersonation. This paper points out that Alcott uses certain symbols to heighten her message in the novel such as umbrellas, used by men to protect women from inclemencies of the outside world. The author feels that, through her works, Alcott advocates feminism, political equality and the dignity of work, represented by her feminist and psychosexual themes, which jibed with the American social reformers of her time.
