Fredrika Bremer Biography
Fredrika Bremer (August 17, 1801 - December 31, 1865) was a Swedish writer and feminist activist. She was born in Åbo (Turku) in Finland but grew up in Stockholm. From 1849 she travelled for a couple of years, all by herself, in the United States and to the island of Cuba, and was disappointed in the promised land, particularly slavery. Her novel Hertha remains her most influential work, it is a dark novel about the lack of freedom for women.
