The literary activities of prominent nineteenth-century English feminists have long been a subject of great interest. During this period, writing used to be considered as inappropriate for the women but it provided them with an opportunity to carry out a literary rebellion against the deliberate marginality which they faced both as women and as writers. Excluded from social, political, and economic activities, writing remained perhaps the only way through which they could assert themselves. This work presents broad discussion of the diversity and complexity of Victorian feminism by exploring the intellectual approach and the theoretical framework of prominent Victorian feminist writers, specifically Charlotte Brontë.
