Woolf exposes the prejudices and constraints against which women writers struggled for centuries and argues for a more equal literary establishment. 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.
