About this book
This book follows Woolf's changing representations of femininity throughout her career. In her early work, Woolf was particularly interested in the difference and specificity of feminine experience. In her later work she was more sceptical of the value of creating a special category of 'the feminine'. Her work is thus centred on a dichotomy which still structures our thinking about sexual difference: between essentialist and constructionist views of gender.
