The book presents to the reader the first ever English translation of short stories, so far for no reason rather neglected, by Czech female authors at the turn of the 19th and 20th century. These short stories are brought together not only by the translator, but also by the period they were written in, as well as by the beginnings of female emancipation in the early 20th century. The book is accompanied by the biographies of all the eight authors, including B. Benešová, R. Jesenská, M. Majerová and others.
