Jessa Is a Total Amy

Hairpin pal Chiara Atik is over at Vulture today, making the case that the Little Women were the original Girls: “The characters of the show are analagous in a way that suggests these four girls — the writer, the responsible one, the sweet one, and the wild-child — are time-honored archetypes for American women, rather than products of their creator’s imagination. Or maybe American society and American girlhood just haven’t changed that much in the past 150 years.” [Vulture]
