Bremer, Fredrika, 1801-65, Swedish writer and feminist, b. Finland. Her novels of everyday life include The H Family (1829), The President's Daughters (1834), and The Home (1839). She recorded impressions of travel in America (1849-51) in Homes in the New World (1853); letters from this book were translated as America of the Fifties (1924). Her later novels advocate the emancipation of woman. Her major novel Hertha (1856) gave its name to the journal of Sweden's largest women's organization. In the late 19th cent. she was internationally known as a key social critic and observer of events in the United States.
