I am working on a Western Traditions paper and these 3 authors are being debated about if they are a feminist or not, could you help?

Virginia Woolf
Sarah Stickney Ellis
Simone de Beauvoir

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM and I'd be happy to add my two cents to your paper:

  • Virginia Woolf--was most certainly a feminist--both in her real life and in the characters that she created (i.e. Orlando).

  • Sarah Stickney Ellis -- I don't know her nor can I find any information on her in the women's history books I have. This leads me to believe that she wasn't a feminist--or maybe she was a feminist whose life just wasn't that well documented.

  • Simone de Beauvoir--was most certainly a feminist. Her book The Second Sex is like a feminist bible. She was a feminist in what she preached and in how she lived her life.

For more--perhaps you could contact the National Women's History Project.
