From the Paper:

"Virginia Woolf is noted for her novels, which feature a new type of literary style based on psychology and deem "stream-of-consciousness," but she is also known for her criticism and essays on literary subjects. The act of writing was an important human action for her, and she explored the meaning of this communicative process especially in terms of gender, in terms of the expression of women writers and the problems they encountered in finding their fictional voice. Woolf commented on the oppression and repression of women writers in her time and in so doing says much about the relations between men and women in society and specifically about the need for women to achieve freedom so they feel they can express themselves through writing in the same way men do."
