This paper seeks to examine the 'New Woman' beyond her physical appearance. I examine specifically what role sexuality plays in shaping her identity. I do this by examining two films "Pandora's Box" and "Girls in Uniform" and two novels "The Artificial Silk Girl" and "The Scorpion." "Girls in Uniform" and "The Scorpion" both have homosexual protagonists and by comparing them with the heterosexual protagonists of the other two sources I aim to gather a clearer understanding of how sexuality shapes their identities as New Women.
