Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JEANETTE WINTERSON

'What conditions are necessary for the creation of works of art?' Security, confidence, independence, a degree of prosperity - a room of one's own. All things denied to most women around the world living in Virginia Woolf's time, and before her time, and since. In this funny, provoking and insightful polemic, Virginia Woolf challenges her audience of young women to work on even in obscurity, to cultivate the habit of freedom, and to exercise the courage to write exactly what we think.

The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir

MEDIA REVIEWS
One realises afresh the full meaning of originality, the magic of the mind which plays around concrete facts as though they were all spirit. And when it is finished it is with a renewed sense of zest and stimulus that one takes up life again and looks anew at objects which before were only ordinary. * Guardian *
Brilliant interweaving of personal experience, imaginative musing and political clarity -- Kate Mosse
Achingly relevant -- Natasha Walter * Guardian *
