Virginia Woolf received three separate requests for a guinea--one for a women's college building fund, one for a society promoting employment for professional women, and one to help prevent war.
This book is an answer to these requests--and as Wolfe examines the three causes and points out that they are inseparably the same, she declares a new tactic of feminine purpose.
"She follows two streams of thought until they flow into the same sea; and that end, that finally encompassing wholeness is not merely peace, not merely freedom and equality for race and sex, it is human civilization, a civilization which must be better, sounder....Toward so broad a purpose must we move if wars are to be prevented and the human mind and spirit are to stand erect and fearless in this world." (The New York Times)

Maybe or hes prob see around the room or something to see if anyone laughed
Hi! Okay, so I have a crush on this guy, he's in band with me, and that's the only time I see him, because he is in the grade below me. We have talked a little, but not like a lot. However, the last practice we had, he started talking to me a lot more, and I *ehem* think I saw him looking at me. Am I going absolutely crazy? Does that mean anything? I don't know. I'm confused. Thanks for the help!
