Today is not only Robbie Burns day but it is also the birthday of British author and feminist Virginia Wolfe who was born in 1882.
And she gets forgotten because of all the brouhaha around Burns Day.
Ironic that, if it wasn't another example of unconscious systemic sexism.
All I could do was to offer you an opinion upon one minor point—a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction; and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved.
