Abstract

How does Carrie Meeber, Theodore Dreiser's ''half-equipped little knight" (4) in Sister Carrie (1900), fare from a feminist perspective which favors the psychological development of women into empowered individuals? One critic argues that she "does better for herself than if she had followed a more conventional path," such as marriage and family (Wolstenholme 254). I agree Carrie has gained power. Even if she does not completely develop into an independent woman, she certainly becomes an important and influential one.
