    ‘there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.’

    i am so, so, so grateful as a woman to live in a time where my education is an expectation and my creativity is encouraged. i try to imagine myself 100 years in the past and i hope i would be the kind of woman woolf was – someone who understood the importance of granting women equal opportunities in work and school and who bravely expressed her opinions.

    and what i would give to be able to have attended the lecture where woolf delivered this speech. i will admit i sometimes struggled with reading the stream-of-consciousness style this address employs and i definitely think a verbal presentation of the essay would be much more effective.

    regardless, i appreciate woolf, and authors like her, who inspired the movement for gender equality, especially in the field of literature.
