L’ecriture feminine is the idea that a "feminine" language is possible. Mrs. Dalloway recounts the lives of three individuals and constantly shifts from past events to present events working in a web of cycles. There is little distinction in places about what is dialogue and what is internal monologue. Because of this cyclical, non-distinctive style, it does strike the reader as a possible l'ecriture feminine.
