Virginia Woolf (born Adeline Virginia Stephen, January 25, 1882, London; died March 28, 1941, Rodmell, East Sussex) was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and publisher. She is today considered one of the most significant writers of the Twentieth Century; as a fiction writer, one of the "major figures of literary modernism", and a "pioneering" writer of essays on "artistic theory, literary history, women’s writing, and the politics of power."[1] Woolf's friend and colleague E. M. Forster said that "she pushed the light of the English language a little farther against darkness."[2]


Virginia Woolf actively support women's suffrage, and joined organizations advocating for the right to vote for women.[3]
