Writer Virginia Wolf


Google honors writer Virginia Wolf

I was quite impressed this morning as I opened the chrome browser to see Google’s doodle of writer Virginia Wolf.

The English writer is known for her works, Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse and Orlando.

However, what inspires me the most is her essay, “A Room of One’s Own.”

I find Wolf’s early insight “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction,” completely accurate in 2018.

With this essay, Wolf has inspired feminism and social consciousness.

I first encountered her name upon entering my work into the “Room of Her Own” literary contest three years ago.

As we enter 2018 strong with the #MeToo , #TimesUp movements and the trial of the former MSU & USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar who has been sentenced to 175 years in prison, we all need to find our own voice and speak up against any injustice.

As a new author on the literary scene, I consider voicing my own opinion about social consciousness  more important than ever.

How do you feel about voicing your opinion Candidly  on matters of social consciousness, injustice and women’s rights in face of sexual assault?

The silence surrounding the reporting of sexual abuse has to stop now.
