Katherine Mansfield's writings are indicative of an acute awareness
of the crippling effects that patriarchy has on women. Her deepest suspicions were aroused by authoritarianism in any form. She was keenly aware that the dynamics of family life are similar in many ways to the power struggles inherent in a patriarchal society. Her preoccupation with women's plight is explicitly expressed in her personal writings, as stated in this journal entry of May 1908 :
I feel that I do now realize, dimly what women in the future will be capable of. They truly as yet have never had their chance. Talk of our enlightened days and our emancipated country - pure nonsense! We are firmly held in the self-fashioned chains of slavery. Yes, now I see that they are self-fashioned, and must be self-removed
