Especially since Alcott was very much a feminist for her time. She didn't think that women had to be married to be worthy, was for solidarity among women, women pursuing higher education, practicing medicine, etc. Throughout her various novels it becomes plain that while she admired women who were homemakers and cultivated domestic skills she was equally admiring of women who went out beyond the home and worked to fulfill their dreams. She didn't pit one type against the other, and considered "womanly" to be not a word denoting weakness and frivolity but one expressing maturity and strength. (And note that the title refers to her teenage protagonists as "women" not "girls.")It was written in 1868/9, and I wouldn’t think it particularly fair to judge its title on our present day views of what’s sexist or not.
