This volume combines two books which are among the greatest contributions to feminist literature in the twentieth century. Together they form a brilliant attack on patriarchy and sexual inequality.
'A Room Of One's Own', first published in 1929 and based upon two lectures which Virginia Woolf had given in Cambridge the year before, is a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers.
'Three Guineas', the sequel, was published in 1938 and is a passionate and much more strongly charged polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.
