She was born 136 years ago today on January 25, 1882 in Kensington, London and lived until the age of 59, passing in the UK on March 28, 1941.

Some of her more notable works and movies included Orlando, Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, Golven, A Room of One's Own, Simple Gifts.

She was also instrumental in "inspiring feminism" and her works helped raise equality issues.

These childhood memories inspired the settings and themes of English author Virginia Woolf’s powerful stream-of-consciousness narratives, a unique literary style that established Woolf as one of modern feminism’s most influential voices.
