?If Shakespeare had a sister as talented as he, would she have got the same opportunities to develop her skills??
This was the burning question every feminist must have pondered over and agreed with while reading Virginia Woolf ?s extended essay
A Room of One?s Own,
which was first published in 1929. Woolf worked on the idea of how money and space serve as two very crucial factors in the independence of a woman, and especially one who wishes to write. In due course of her essay, she brings to the surface how women have undergone injustice in the face of biases and social constructs spanning across centuries.
