    (Kalamazoo College, 2022-01) Heslinger, Mallory
    Many women throughout history, particularly during the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries chose to remain anonymous in their work, or to write under a pen name that disguised their identity. Writing was not always seen as a suitable profession for a woman, and to ensure their work sold, women often chose masculine names, remained anonymous, or used only their initials.
