The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 10: A Room of One’s Own

I first read Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own in my freshman year at college, but I don’t remember it having made much impact on me back when I was 18 years old – perhaps I needed more time and living to be able to relate the author’s message to my own experience. Now I can see from the perspective of my gender how generations of patriarchal society has limited women’s ability to compete in most industries and opportunities – we should be very grateful to the women who’ve struggled within male dominated fields to not just carve out a foothold, but to excel and succeed, forging a path for other women to follow and setting a standard to meet and surpass.
