The essay lays bare the woman artist’s struggle for a voice since throughout history she has been denied the social and economic independence assumed by men. Woolf’s prescription is clear; if a woman is to find creative expression equal to a man’s, she must have an independent income, and a room of her own. This is both an acute analysis and a spirted rallying cry; it remainds surprisingly resonant and relevant in the 21st century.
