QUOTE | FROM Virginia Woolf




If woman had no existence save in the fiction written by men, one would imagine her a person of the utmost importance (...); as great as a man, some think even greater. But this is woman in fiction. In fact, as Professor Trevelyan points out in his History of England, she was locked up, beaten and flung about the room.
