Nancy Shaba Beverly Fish WS 1010 10/4/11 Why Are There No Women Artists? “If Shakespeare Had a Sister” was written by Virginia Woolf. The author wants the readers to consider the idea of the world's greatest writer having a sister who might have been similarly gifted. Had he had a sister who was as brilliant and as talented, the world would still have never known it due to the role of women at the time. The author explains that the reason for women’s failure to reach the heights has nothing to do with their intrinsic nature or inherent capability; it is just because they are women. Like her brother, she had a taste for the theater. His sister could not go to school, she was just expected to get married in her teens and have children immediately while her brother follows his dreams .She stood by the stage door and wanted to act but men laughed in her face. They all thought that women could not possibly be actresses. Even if his sister wanted to she could get no training. This prevented women from doing creative work

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
