In the texts "Shakespeare's Sister" by Virginia Woolf and "Woman's Place in Man's Life Cycle" by Carol Gilligan, the authors provide their own interpretation of women's subjugation at different periods: Woolf had expressed her thoughts on suppression of artistic expression in the early part of the twentieth century, while Gilligan discussed hers in 1982. Given the backgrounds on each author's work, this paper posits that Woolf and Gilligan's works are written accounts of their interpretations of women suppression under the feminist framework. The paper explains that, although not explicitly nor directly addressed, both authors involve themselves in critical thinking about how women have continuously maintained their 'low class' statuses in society, despite the onset of modernization and the almost egalitarian nature of 20th century society.
