In 1929, Virginia Woolf first published ‘A Room of One’s Own' based on two lectures she delivered in October 1928 at Newnham College and Girton College, women’s colleges at the University of Cambridge.

In her essay, Woolf uses metaphors to explore social injusti'es and comments on women’s lack of free expression.
