Shakespeare’s sister… why she did not write a word!

November 10, 2002

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, was first published in 1928 and is based on two lectures she gave that year. It is one of my all-time favourite feminist books. Woolf was invited to speak about women and fiction and the basic premise of her speech was that a woman must have money and room of her own if she is to write fiction.

A Room of My Own (and a kitchen, and a bathroom)

November 9, 2002

Exhibit A

They’re at it again. You’ve just walked through the door and you can hear psycho couple number one, who happen to be your flatmates, not just arguing about some insignificant difference of opinion, but actually screaming at each other. And they’re in the loungeroom, sprawled out all over the floor, hogging the television. When they do stop arguing they go back to being all over each other and really grossing you out.
