Much more interesting is the method with which women pry open the door of emancipation...

The greatest block today in the way of woman's emancipation is the church, the canon law, the Bible and the priesthood.

Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free.

Histories of conflicts were always much more interesting than the rest... It's in human nature to seek the way to survive violence.

Adeline Virginia Woolf (née Stephen; 25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English writer and one of the foremost modernists of the twentieth century.

During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a central figure in the influential Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."

Woolf suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life, thought to have been the result of what is now termed bipolar disorder,[1] and committed suicide by drowning in 1941 at the age of 59.

To Mehrdad77: Thank you for your post. Miss Emma says it so much better than what I.

"Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free."

A Room of One's Own

Published October 1929. 2.) Virginia Woolf shares, "The history of men's opposition to women's emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself" (Woolf 72). She makes obvious in her book about how some men were opposed to women receiving their rights. 3.) "I would venture to guess than Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman" (Woolf 51). Woolf showed how women, who didn't have equal rights to men, often didn't get credit for their accomplishments. A Room of One's Own Virginia Woolf Virginia Woolf was born in 1882, to highly educated parents. Her father was not only a historian but also an author. Her mother was a nurse who also became an author later in life. She had 7 siblings, 4 of which were her half siblings. "Woolf's standards for herself were mercilessly high" (Gordon vii). This aspect about herself led her to achieve great things. She became an inspiration to people everywhere and was praised for her ideas on feminism. Later in life, Woolf became a motivational speaker and built herself a successful career as well as marrying another writer Leonardo Woolf. By the time she was married to Leonardo she had published "The Voyage Out" and was working on other books, essays, and letters. On March 28, 1941 Virginia Woolf committed suicide.
