Book Review of A Room of One's Own

A Room of One's Own
reviewed on + 16 more book reviews

The age-old glass ceiling - put in place partially by the all-consuming role of mother and caregiver and partly by jealousy of men unsure of their own abilities - is experienced by women in all professions. Woolf expounds her observations and deductions in a sometimes heavy-handed, but always clear and precise manner, speaking specifically of women writers, but the points are easily expandable to any métier. A wonderful and personally telling monograph, beautiful words and you can almost hear the reaction of the crowd gathered to hear her verbal presentation from which the book is taken. A keeper - not to be re-listed!
