Is it because she was the first to wear a dress? Does it say ‘The flapper girl was a symbol, a symbol of liberation for women’, or is there more to it?
Is it because she was an American slave or that she was a symbol of liberation for slaves? It’s a combination of many different things. A slave was a symbol of the subjugation of women, women as a species, and women as human beings. One of the most influential women in history in the last century was Empress Matilda of Sweden. Her story is that she had enslaved more than one hundred women — some were children, some older women. But she was the first woman in history to emancipate all the women. That’s one thing. Her story is that that’s the reason that our society got free. What was her other purpose? That was to unite women. It was not just to emancipate women. She wanted to educate them. When women started talking about their rights, she thought it would be good for the whole of society. It was also, though, about freedom. She wanted the world to not be divided between the rich and the poor. That’s what freedom is about. It’s not just a word, it was the main concept in her thinking.
So it’s a combination of all these things?
I think so. What she wanted to bring about was freedom for all women because men were fighting for themselves and against women. And women didn’t get their freedom. That’s why they had to fight for other women. Women thought they were only to liberate them, or to get the men for themselves. But the truth is that they all were fighting for the freedom of one or another of the men. And that’s why women fought for their rights, because men had no problems with them. It’s a combination of all these things.
Did you get a sense of the symbolism when you read about her? If so, do you think about it in that regard?
Yes, I do. It’s one of the major themes that all of the women who fought for their right are represented in this book. They are all very powerful and important women. And they all had one thing in common, which was freedom from men. They all wanted to be free. I’m not trying to make any political statements or statements of any kind about women’s rights. Women’s rights is a universal thing, and to me that’s what the story is about. She wasn
