A Room of One's Own, based on a lecture given at Girton College Cambridge, is one of the great feminist polemics. Woolf's blazing polemic on female creativity, the role of the writer, and the silent fate of Shakespeare's imaginary sister remains a powerful reminder of a woman's need for financial independence and intellectual freedom.

"Classic, inspiring & full of quotable quotes"
A Room of One's Own is beautifully read by Juliet Stephenson. Virginia Woolf writes a short but thought provoking book, relevant even today. It if full of quotable quotes, including the iconic one used as the title.
The first half of the book is a slow build up to the inspiring second.
