Woolf had an active interest in the Labour Party and Co-operative Movement and regularly held meetings for her local branch of the Women's Co-operative Guild. This work engages in a discussion of the social movement and her position of privilege, showing her awareness that she sits as a "benevolent spectator" to the actions of the guild (Carroll, p. 123).
