“Obstinate, headstrong girl!” (Jane Austen) Carolin Emcke and Anke Engelke on outspoken women


From a young age, girls learn to comply, to fit in, not to be too difficult, too demanding or too opinionated. This social expectation is mirrored and communicated in fairy stories and songs, poems and novels. But literature also tells us of female characters who step out of their roles by being clever or independent, who are stubborn and unorthodox, resisting taboos and conventions. Carolin Emcke and Anke Engelke read angry, amusing, shocking and encouraging texts about opinionated, unconventional women in literature. With the Brothers Grimm, Christa Wolf, Simone de Beauvoir, Mely Kiyak, Jeanette Winterson and many others.
