Heidi Holland and Feminism in The Heidi Chronicles
Wendy Wasserstein’s The Heidi Chronicles attempts to
demonstrate the futility of the women’s rights movement, and its incapacity to fulfill the needs of all women. We trace the main character, Heidi, from the time she develops an interest in men, 1964, to the time where she gives up on men and decides to fulfill her own needs for a family by adopting a child.

He knows that Heidi embodies a multitude of qualities that he both adores and are somewhat intimidating. Therefore, he chooses to marry Lisa Freidlander, the opposite of all the things Heidi represents to Scoop.
