During the time when Judith is created, women are considered to be naturally inferior to men in terms of writing and are expected to be passive and domestic. Regarding her potential audience, educated men, as “conservative,” Woolf attempts to persuade them that it is nurture, not nature, that is responsible for the absence of female writers as great as Shakespeare without irritating them by proposing “radical” arguments.
Throughout the novels, one may notice some patterns repeating themselves. First of all, the idea of beauty. As Emig points out, when a conventionally beautiful woman is introduced, readers expects her to be spoiled and superficial, like Rosamond (Emig 106). However, this is not equally applied to men.

These lines present Wing as a woman because the narrator presents women as desiring or loving other men since he acts in the same way as them. The implication that he was doing something wrong to the boys is true because the other women in the story so far wanted something from men, but there is no clarification that what they want is sexual.
