Patricia Ramsay is analysing twenty-seven selected short stories of the fin de siècle Spanish writer Emilia Pardo Bazán. The reactions of the female protagonists in these narratives to the gendered discrimination of their society is of particular interest; some will resist while others will succumb. A former university lecturer, secondary school biology teacher and ESOL teacher, Patricia is now a PhD candidate in Spanish.
