Description
"Witty, scornful, deeply serious...If you are a woman, or anti-war, or both, read it."-- The New Yorker "How are we to prevent war?" Setting out to answer this question, Virginia Woolf argues that the inequalities between women and men must first be addressed. Framing her arguments in the form of a letter, Woolf ponders to whom--among the many who have requested it--she will donate a guinea. As she works out her reasons for which causes she will support, Woolf articulates a vision of peace and political culture as radical now as it was when first published on the eve of the Second World War. A founding text of cultural theory, Three Guineas can also help us understand the twenty-first-century realities of endless war justified by "unreal loyalties."

Description
The author received three separate requests for a gift of one guinea-one for a women's college building fund, one for a society promoting the employment of professional women, and one to help prevent war and "protect culture, and intellectual liberty." This book is a threefold answer to these requests-and a statement of feminine purpose.
