An extended essay, based on two lectures Woolf delivered in October 1928 at Newnham College and Girton College, women's constituent colleges at the University of Cambridge. A key work of feminist literary criticism and a landmark in feminist thought in general, summarized on p. 6 by the statement: "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." There is more to the book than this statement, however, for Woolf also discusses women's access to education, the history of women's writing, and her famous "Shakespeare's Sister."
