The 2017-2018 LDCW Book Club kicks off with Virginia Woolf’s classic, A Room of One’s Own. In this provocative essay, Woolf examines the limitations of womanhood in the early twentieth century as she makes a bid for freedom, emphasizing how the lack of an independent income, and the titular ‘room of one’s own’, prevents most women from reaching their full potential. As relevant in its insight and indignation today as it was when first delivered in those hallowed lecture halls, A Room of One’s Own remains both a beautiful work of literature and an incisive analysis of women and their place in history.
