Throughout Ami McKay’s The Birth House, different attributes of the feminist literary criticism are demonstrated. The novel is set in the early 1900’s which was a time where women were not given equal rights as men and were just there to cook, clean, and look after the children. While reading the novel I noticed how women like Ms. Babineau and Dora stand up against the norm of how women are supposed to behave in their society (McKay). This will be further explained in the video below!
