Mister Ron's Basement #223
Fanny Fern (Sara Payson Willis Parton) was not only one of the earliest and most popular regularly published feminist writers of the 1850s and 1860s, but she often used her sharp, pointed wit to skewer pretension and ignorance. Her 1854 story 'The Advantages of a House in a Fashionable Square' explores love and social climbing, and has a satisfyingly happy ending.
Time: approx sixteen minutes
