A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas (Vintage Classics Woolf Series)
A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas (Vintage Classics Woolf Series) | Virginia Woolf
7 posts | 7 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
This volume combines two books which were among the greatest contributions to feminist literature this century. Together they form a brilliant attack on sexual inequality. A Room of One's Own, first published in 1929, is a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers. The sequel, Three Guineas, is a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.

Yesterday‘s Lifeline Cardiff purchases for the grand total of $13. Most of these are gifts for the kids but the rest are treats for me. I‘m all alone this weekend & I‘m loving it. My step children & partner are away. I‘m having big sleeps & tea & treats in bed. I went to ballet class yesterday, shopped for hrs, drank some nice wine & did some decluttering. Today I‘m off to watch Hustlers, the movie in a Gold Class Cinema=cocktails & yummy food.

LeeRHarry That sounds like a perfect weekend! Have fun in Gold Class! 😊 4mo

"Is the charwoman who has brought up 8 children of less value to the world than the (male) barrister who has made a hundred thousand pounds?" -Virginia Woolf. #internationalwomensday #valuewomen #everymomisaworkingmom

I am loving this book! It's so witty. I have liked both of Virginia Woolf's novels I have read so far, but it did take me a while to get into them - with this one it was immediate! A fascinating argument about why there weren't as many women writers ( and on misogyny in general). Great so far! Can't wait to get to the weekend so I have some actual free time to read!
