Abstract

This exploration of selected texts from renowned authors Virgina Woolf and Zora Neale Hurston differs from traditional analyses in proposing that these works are precursory thought to the later social movement known as Third Wave Feminism. Hurston and Woolf lived and wrote in the early twentieth century, while the Third Wave emerged in the early nineties. Third Wave ideology uses intersectionality, which called for a simultaneous consideration of factors such as gender, race, and class to name a few. Woolf and Hurston’s works both indicate a desire to employ intersectionality to advocate social change and self-actualization.
