Three Guineas by Virginia Woolf

The book is a passionate treatise on the oppressive nature of patriarchy and the societal mechanisms that perpetuate war. Through a series of letters responding to a man's request for a donation to prevent war, the author delves into the interconnectedness of gender inequality, education, and militarism. She argues that the education and empowerment of women is essential to breaking the cycle of conflict, advocating for a new social order where women's perspectives and experiences are valued equally. The work is a critical examination of the roles and expectations of women in society and a call for fundamental change to achieve peace and equality.
