A Room of One’s Own
This essay by English writer Virginia Woolf is based on several lectures given to two women’s colleges at Cambridge University in 1928. In it, Woolf describes that it’s circumstance not talent alone that allows men to be more successful at writing. Women, in other words, spend so much time cooking, cleaning, and tending to their children that they have no time left for art. To write well, therefore, a woman must have a “room of her own.” While on its surface, this essay appears to be only about writing, it is actually about wealth and class, freedom and imprisonment, and the power struggle between sexes.
