A Room of One’s Own is Woolf’s feminist literary manifesto, in which she assesses the history of women as writers and the challenges they have faced, notes the effects of patriarchal literary culture on female characters, and makes the case that women must carve out both physical and psychological space for themselves in order to become part of the literary establishment.
