Description:

This paper explains that Virginia Woolf wrote "A Room of One's Own" in 1929. The author points out that the preface to the book informs the reader that this essay was based upon two papers Woolf, who had been invited to speak on the subject of women and fiction, read to the Arts Society at Newnham and the Odtaa at Girton in October 1928. The paper relates that both Newnham and Girton were tertiary institutions for women (part of Cambridge University) which were rare in those times.

From the Paper:

"Virginia Woolf wrote "A Room of One's Own "in 1929. The preface to the book informs us that this "essay" was based upon two papers Woolf read to the Arts Society at Newnham and the Odtaa at Girton in October 1928. Both Newnham and Girton were tertiary institutions for women (part of Cambridge University) - which were rare indeed in those times. Woolf had been invited to speak on the subject of women and fiction. Apparently the project intrigued her and gained a momentum of its own, as we can see from the depth of her inquiry into the subject and the length."
