Norwegian Pioneers Educate Their Daughters
by Gracia Grindal.
When Lutheran church leaders came from Norway in the middle of the nineteenth century, boys were to be educated at a college away from home, and girls were to be educated in the parlors of an aunt or close friends of her parents. Now they lived not only in a new land and culture, but also in a new era when the role of women was changing. Numerous letters and sketches from pioneer pastor’s wives are a primary source of information. The lives, thoughts and convictions of this unique group of Norwegian-American women opens readers to the challenges of the larger world—how to eliminate disparities in educational opportunities everywhere, whether based on gender, race, national identity, or social class. Facing a wide array of roadblocks on their journey, the women of Norwegian-American Lutheran communities never faltered in their search for educational opportunities.
They were unstoppable.
