Women generally represent intuition, creativity, nurturing, and love. At times they can also represent the negative attributes which are given to women and include physical and emotional weakness, gossip, martyrdom, passivity, moodiness, temptation, and guilt. The content of the dream is to be considered, as well as the emotional tone. If the dream is sexual in nature, look up sex. If the woman in your dream was a stranger and you are a man, she could be symbolic of your feminine side or your attitude about women. If you are a woman, this stranger may be symbolic of different parts of your character or personality. Carl Jung believed that the unknown woman in a man’s dream is the anima. It is the “personification of the animated psychic atmosphere; the autonomous activity of the unconscious.” Thus, when you meet an unknown woman in your dreams, pay close attention to what she is saying and doing. It is Carl Jung who suggested that women in dreams represent our collective unconscious and men collective consciousness. Thus, the woman is that force or current inside of you that nudges you on and inspires you. It is your intuition and the knowledge that in not necessarily attached to words. Men, on the other hand, represent the active part that uses the information received to create the physical reality of our lives. When the two are working together well we have balance and experience awareness that leads to peace and productivity.

Using a trope from Julia Kavanagh's writing, the public examination or trial, this essay examines the Irish writer's evaluation of the literary qualities of women writers profiled in English Women of Letters. The conceptual alignment between public examination and literary evaluation underlies Kavanagh's protofeminist approach to judging the work of Victorian women writers who were held to a double critical standard: they were expected to demonstrate qualities normally associated with women (refinement, sentiment, and high moral tone) but not to demonstrate ones associated with men, such as intelligence or power.
