Director’s Notes

Louisa May Alcott’s LITTLE WOMEN has been a standard read for young (and older) women for generations. The popularity of this classic is due, in part, to the affectionate and lively story of a family living during the turbulent years during and after the American Civil War.

The characters are richly drawn and the picture of domestic life is compelling. What makes the story so captivating is the universality of family relationships. Marmee and Father lovingly encourage the aspirations of their daughters. Each sister is allowed to develop her own talents with the love and support of parents and siblings.

Though expectations and opportunities for girls in the 1860’s were different from those of today, it isn’t too much of a stretch to see connections to the present. Opportunities for women authors and artists like Jo and Amy abound, housewives like Meg have opportunities to pursue other interests, and medical advances might provide help for Beth.

These “Little Women” demonstrated intelligence and grit. They serve as worthy models for young women today.
