Shakespeare's Sisters: Voices of English and European Women Writers, 1500- 1700

FEBRUARY 3RD, 2012 AT 10:00 AM | FREE | BEMELSON@FOLGER.EDU | TEL: (202) 675- 0342 | EVENT WEBSITE

Virginia Woolf famously evoked "Shakespeare's sister" in A Room of One's Own as she tried to imagine the difficulties women writers faced during the early modern period. In fact, Woolf was not aware of how many women actually were writing during that time, because many of their works were never published, and those that were, lay in relative critical neglect. This exhibition explores those women who were, in fact, writing during Shakespeare's time.
