As a New England mother struggles to support her family in the wake of her husband’s service in the Civil War, her four daughters struggle, too—caught between childhood dreams and the realities of burgeoning adulthood. For Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March, raised in integrity and virtue, negotiating the right path in life means making choices that will either narrow or expand their destinies.
Based on the author’s life, Little Women transcends genre, gender, and class with its examination of personal quests, societal restrictions, family ties, and the end of innocence.

Revised edition: Previously published as Little Women, this edition of Little Women (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there’s tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there’s Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious Meg is the eldest and on the brink of love. Then there’s tomboy Jo who longs to be a writer. Sweet-natured Beth always puts others first, and finally there’s Amy, the youngest and most precocious. Together they are the March sisters. Even though money is short, times are tough and their father is away at war, their infectious sense of fun sweeps everyone up in their adventures — including Laurie, the boy next door. And through sisterly squabbles, their happy times and sad ones too, the sisters discover that growing up is sometimes very hard to do.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s childhood, this lively portrait of nineteenth-century family life possesses a lasting vitality that has endeared it to generations of readers.
A wonderful story... As a child, I strongly identified with Jo because she is a writer. —Jacqueline Wilson
The American female myth. —Madelon Bedell
It is an essential American novel, perhaps the essential American novel for girls… Girls come to it on their own. —Jane Smiley
In “Little Women”, Alcott anticipated realism by twenty or thirty years. —G. K. Chesterton
O livro foi escrito e ambientado na casa da família Alcott, em Concord, Massachusetts. A obra foi publicada em dois volumes, um em 1868 e o outro em 1869, sendo o primeiro objeto desta publicação ilustrada e especialmente desenvolvida para o mercado brasileiro.
O romance segue a vida de quatro irmãs - Meg, Jo, Beth e Amy March - e é vagamente baseada nas experiências de infância da autora e de suas três irmãs. Mulherzinhas era uma novela de ficção que se desviava dos escritos normais para crianças, especialmente meninas, na época.
O livro tem três temas principais: "domesticidade, trabalho e amor verdadeiro". Todos eles são interdependentes e cada um é necessário para a conquista da identidade individual de uma heroína, de acordo com a tônica da história. A obra foi lida como um romance ou como uma missão, ou ambas. Trata-se de um drama familiar em que a virtude se sobrepõe à riqueza.
A propósito, a obra é um clássico atemporal, escrito para encantar gerações de mulheres aptas a lutarem contra todo tipo de desigualdade.
