Virginia Woolf

25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941

British author and publisher.


A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.

A Room of One's Own, 1929


The history of men's opposition to women's emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself.


The truth is, I often like women. I like their unconventionality. I like their completeness. I like their anonymity.
