All these women hear the tales of a patriarchal communal history, which they rewrite as challenging female narrative to counter the cultural emphasis on the individual. Woven out of memories, the narrative is brought out to the public world by the imagination and the sophistication of the daughter as in Porter's The Old Order, Welty's The Optimist's Daughter, or Jewett's The Country of the Pointed Firs; or by female authorial voice itself as in Glasgow's Beyond Defeat and Vein of Iron or Cather's My Ántonia; or by the voice of the female community as in Naylor's Mama Day.

Therefore the woman who would succeed in public roles must repudiate manifestations of her gender and devalue the private domestic role.
