I found many truths in this book about the value of treatment of women that are , unfortunately, still true today. However, I felt the book was too detailed and too repetitive to make its case well. It also was directed to Brits so I did not possess foreknowledge of many of many of the references. ( )

Hacer a un lado todas las preocupaciones y estudios terrenales y delegarlos a otra persona constituye una motivación muy atractiva para algunos; pues indudablemente hay quienes quieren retirarse y estudiar, como demuestran la teología con sus refinamientos y la erudición con sus sutilezas; para otros, es cierto, esa motivación es una motivación pobre, mezquina, el motivo de la separación entre la Iglesia y el pueblo, entre la literatura y el pueblo, entre el marido y la mujer, y que ha desempeñado un papel importante en sacar de quicio a la totalidad de la Commonwealth. Pero cualesquiera sean las motivaciones fuertes e inconscientes que subyacen a la exclusión de las mujeres del sacerdocio -y es evidente que aquí no vamos a enumerarlas, mucho menos escarbar hasta sus raíces-, la hija del hombre instruido puede confirmar, a partir de su experiencia, que “es común, e incluso frecuente, que dichas concepciones sobrevivan en el adulto a pesar de la irracionalidad que las caracteriza y traicionen su presencia debajo del nivel del pensamiento consciente a causa la fuerza de los sentimientos que despiertan”.

Virginia Woolf's essays on on a letter to a long unanswered letter asking her to join a society on the prevention of war. Her Woolf is at her snarkiest. She describes the new class of men that arose in England. Those who are not nobility but have made a comfortable living because they are educated. Woolf plays (lived) the role of a "daughter of an educated man." This indicates that she herself is not a recognized person but rather a part or extension of another.

Woolf covers three main topics in her essays -- Prevention of War, Education, and the employment of women. The prevention of war and education for women blend nicely together. Repeated through out the essays is that 300,000,000 is spent on the military. A daughter of an educated woman can, with experience earn 250 pounds a year. Women in allowed employment roles earn significantly less than men for the same positions. Woolf not only describes the current problems but also offers some solutions. An interesting read from 1938 that has still is still felt today with wage inequality and war. Although education is open, the thought of crippling student debt is now a reality. ( )

The easy joke: 'Three Guineas' is why you never ask Virginia Woolf for money.

Three letters each ask for a donation for their cause: the first asks what can be done to prevent war, the second asks for funds to rebuild a woman's college, and the third asks for money to help secure jobs for the daughters of educated men. Woolf eventually answers all three, connecting the situations of all three together.

She makes a lot of good points here building off of and going far beyond 'A Room of One's Own' in the question of women's rights and the consequences of their being denied. The book not only answers the three letters, but is composed of ongoing "drafts" of letters to the individual factions as Woolf builds her argument and predicts the counter-arguments and objections her current letter might face. It's not conversational, but it is a dialogue. If that makes sense.

Her points are stronger and better argued here than in 'A Room of One's Own' but there isn't as strong of a narrative as Judith Shakespeare's to tie the book together and make it as readable. It's worth the effort, but at first I had a hard time getting involved with it.

The end-notes. I loved the end-notes. Sometimes they were just citations, others were extended ironic toeing-the-line digressions. I wish they had been footnotes though, in cases like this where the notes are something you ALWAYS want to check it was irritating to have to flip to the back of the book.

The book's focus on the rights of women (even if Woolf focuses only on the middle class) and the threat of war in the late 1930s makes this a great source of perspective for historians, literary types and feminists alike. ( )
