Virginia Woolf’s Feminist Outburst in ‘Women and Fiction’

In the early part of the twentieth century, Virginia Woolf was a renowned and powerful feminist writer. In her writing, the suppression and oppression of women had been depicted for the recognition of their cultural roles and achievements in respect for social and political rights. Virginia Woolf was an important precursor to inspire or encourage these women through their writings.

In this short essay ‘Women and Fiction’, the writer has raised significant importance of various aspects of literature. Providing various persuasive elements she was able to construct some high-grade novels, in which her main strategy is to indicate the miserable lifestyle of women. Here, the writer tends to analyze why and how women could not get any chance to contribute to history and literature. 

Due to changes in socio-economic conditions were taking place in England, the silent women again started moving into the field of writing. All the novels written by them contained simple and everyday social life such as domestic activities, the relationship between male and female, especially matrimonial subjects even in writing women were not totally free from social barriers. Their world was limited by various obstacles created by the patriarchal society of that time.

One of the practical reasons for women’s silence in the writing field was that nobody prompted them to write anything, rather they were totally deprived of getting the scope of education and sufficient time to think of something for writing. In this short essay, the writer mostly focuses on several causes which are the extreme obstacles to the way of the meritorious women. An extraordinary outburst happened when women started to involve themselves in fictional writings in the nineteenth century when laws, customs, and manners slightly changed.
