Woolf, Virginia: Three Guineas, IMP, v.1, 14 Dec 2007.
“Three Guineas is a book-length essay by Virginia Woolf, published in June 1938. Woolf wrote the essay to answer three questions, each from a different society:
• From an anti-war society: "How should war be prevented?"
• From a women's college building fund: "Why does the government not support education for women?" (Actually, the fund was a metaphor for family private funds to send the "boys of the family" to college and not the women. Woolf questioned this practice, but it was never about government supported schooling for women, but for all people!)
• From a society promoting employment of professional women: "Why are women not allowed to engage in professional work?"
The book is composed of Woolf's responses to a series of letters. The question and answer format creates a sense of dialogue and debate on the politically charged issues the essay tackles, rather than just presenting simple polemical diatribes on each topic.”
The source was PG Australia.
I have hyperlinked the endnotes and added a cover picture etc.
