#Empowered ~ Virginia Woolf

#Empowered ~ Virginia Woolf

On the day of her birthday, there could be no better #Empowered person to feature than Virginia Woolf! 

She is our chosen feminist figure of the week for many reasons. First, she was chiefly interested in the inner lives of women. Unlike many of her literary predecessors, Woolf aimed to give credence to the unspoken emotions and interpretations we, as women, experience daily. She did this not only by placing more traditionally feminine themes at the forefront of her stories, but by penning sentences with a cadence that revealed the inner workings of her characters’ minds.

Secondly, she was progressive in her feminism, and even made the connection between a patriarchal society and militarism. In A Room of One's Own, she famously explains that without financial freedom, women cannot possess full creative or intellectual freedom. While Woolf's essay directly evaluates the role of education -- which was withheld from many women of her time -- she goes on to equate schooling with income and self-sufficiency.

She famously said that "a feminist is any woman who tells the truth about her life", and we could not agree more!
