A Room of One’s Own

I just finished reading A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, and I was surprised at how relevant it remains today. If you aren’t familiar, it is an essay she wrote while on a speaking tour at two colleges in England where she was not allowed full use of the campus facilties. The essay contains her meditations on women and fiction, and she concludes that women writers need money and a room of their own to be successful writers. Essentially, women need independence. In lieu of a review, I am going to share one of my favorite excerpts from the book and just tell you that you should read it (man and woman alike) for general empowerment.
