Reading Comprehension and Feminism Online Test

Read the given text and answer the question that follows. “The emancipation of women,” James Joyce told one of his friends, “has caused the greatest revolution in our time in the most important relationship there is – that between men and women. “Other Modernists agreed: Virginia Woolf, claiming that in about 1910 “human character changed,” and, illustrating the new balance between the sexes, urged, “read the ‘Agamemnon’ and see whether your sympathies are not almost entirely with Clytemnestra.” D. H. Lawrence wrote, “perhaps the deepest fight for 2000 years and more has been the fight for women’s independence.” But if modernist writers considered women’s revolt against men’s domination one of their “greatest” and “deepest” themes, only recently, in perhaps the past fifteen years, has literary criticism begun to catch up with it. Now that the images of sexual antagonism abound in modern literature have gone unremarked; far from it. But what we are able to see in literary works depends on the perspectives’ we bring to them, and now that women, enough to make a difference, are reforming canons and interpreting literature, the landscapes of literary history and the features of individual books have begun to change. According to the passage, women are changing literary criticism by:
Noting instances of hostility between men and women
Seeing literature from fresh points of view
Studying the works of early twentieth-century writers
Reviewing books written by feminists
Resisting masculine influence

The author quotes James Joyce, Virginia Wolfe and D. H. Lawrence primarily in order to show that:
These were feminist writers
Although well-meaning, they were ineffectual
Before the twentieth-century there was little interest in women’s literature
Modern literature is dependent on the women’s movement
The interest in feminist issues is not new
