Ibsen's "abnormal" female figures

WOMEN: On the occasion of Women's Day on March 8, MODERN TIMES is here to reflect on the changing times, an excerpt from Eivind Tjønneland's new book «Abnormal» women – Henrik Ibsen and the decadence. Ibsen's dramas were described in 1893 as written for hysterical women, male masochists and the mentally retarded.
