The novel DAMSELS OVERCOME includes twenty folktales. As noted in the folktales, the masculine voices and pronouns are the standard in literature from the 6th to 18th centuries in many countries. In these folktales, Bobbie Kinkead personally considers damsels skills, that inspire survival beyond male domination of codes and norms, even today. Her argument is with male narratives, which lock both males and females into the standards that women are servants, helpless, feeble, lesser than, and to be saved. Female attitudes, opinions, and pronouns are important and bring balance to writing and storytelling. Time to recognize the position of female and honor her narratives as worth and value.
