And anyway language needs to keep refreshing itself perpetually. (Florence, 279–280) I want to suggest that female artists like Woolf and Potter, whether consciously or unconsciously, dodge the term ‘feminism’ and mute the rhetoric during times of backlash in order to keep the language from being used against them.
