'A Room of One's Own' is probably the most influential feminist essay of the 20th century, imitated, acted on and quarrelled over for over 70 years. The history it tells so vividly and dramatically of women's lack of means, education and opportunity and that effect on their mental freedom and capacities has been and is still a very powerful one. Some years later the author wrote The Years which began life as a 'novel-essay' and then split into two books, The Novel and what is reproduced here, Three Guineas. The two books have been combined in this Vintage Classic paperback. They were among the greatest contributions to feminist literature in the 20th century and together form a brilliant attack on sexual inequality. First published in 1929, the first is a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers. The sequel Three Guineas is a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism. The psychology of the sexes, Mrs Pankhurst, judges today belittling female witnesses, it is all still so very relevant on the debate about Equality. 294pp in paperback.
